Cara was AMAZING with Ellie! I was actually out of the country and my boyfriend out of town, she was so accommodating in keeping both of us informed. We got pictures and updates, and Ellie looked so happy with her!! Super easy and prompt to communicate with, has a lot of experience, will for sure think of her the next time I need to leave Ellie! Thank you so much Cara!

When Cara watches your pet

I will take your dog(s) on walks nearby your place, exploring around to find fun and new courses so they never get bored. I enjoy taking dogs also for runs if they can handle it! If there are any dog parks nearby and they do well with other dogs, I am happy to bring them there to play off leash and play fetch!
