Brandi's home away from home is with Carina. We just completed our 3rd visit and Brandi walked right in and made herself at home on her couch! That spoke volumes as Brandi is a rescue that is slow to bond (normally) with others other than us!
Stellar, so glad to have Carina caring for our doggies she is always going above and beyond
Leaving our pup is always a challenge, for us and for our anxious pooch. Carina was so great and flexible in helping our fur baby feel safe. Snoop, who is notoriously picky about the furry company he keeps, felt right at home with her two dogs and from our first meet and greet, I could tell he felt comfortable at her home. Carina is a genuine dog lover and her home was one that truly ...
Home away from home
When your pet stays with us they are family! We live in a house with a fully fenced yard in the Longwood neighborhood of Mandarin. We share the house with Lincoln (my Italian-Chihuahua), Buddy (a full breed toy chihuahua) and Katie (a boarder collie) and of course Anthony (my husband) who loves helping out! I have 17 plus years of experience watching pet's both at my place and in the home of the owner. I ...
What Carina would like to know about your dog
I love all dog breeds and don't discriminate. However, I do not accept puppies who are not fully potty trained or dogs who are 6 months or older and are not fixed. Unfortunately I don't have the time to potty train and unfixed pets seems to create problems. I also am unable to take in pups who tend to bark or cry a lot if left alone. Hannah is the gatekeeper and you have to get past her however, she very rarely disapproves of any dog coming over for an overnight visit. Lincoln loves to play, so he gets excited when any dog wants to participate and play chase!
I would like to know of any anxiety issues, chewing, and of course medical needs. I do take in 4 sometimes 5 pets at a time, so your pet should at least tolerate other dogs if not love them. I am home most of the day and having multiple pets stay with us has worked great, is a lot of fun, and I have never had a problem nor have the dogs. They always seem to work things out.
I have experience working with high anxiety, older and shy pets and have special places where pups can take a break or be away from the crowd if they need it.
I also have no problem giving meds and preparing special diets during their stay.
