Carissa has been awesome! She is very attentive, caring, and patient with the pups. She always provides excellent feedback and detailed reports. Looking forward to booking with her again!

Being a super organized neat freak, makes it incredibly nerve racking to have some one stay in your home, sitting your dog. Carissa took all my worries away. She came here (on her day off) with a notepad ready to follow all of my instructions to the T! While I was away, she gave me constant updates and pictures of my dog.

Every dog's favorite human!

I love dogs more than anything in the world and treat them all as my own. I have cared for animals all my life, but I have a special place in my heart for dogs. My love for dogs allows me to foster connections with them built on trust and mutual respect. Dogs are more than just pets to me; they're vital members of families and communities and help bring love and positivity into the ...

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

I do not have breed preferences. Prior to caring for your dog I learn about rules and protocol that pet parents use with their dogs, such as behavioral commands, and I learn about any and all medical and dietary needs and/or restrictions. I have experience meeting such needs, as long as they are communicated to me. I also need to know if your dog has aggressive tendencies or triggers. Additionally I would also like to know about your dog's socialization habits. For example, I would like to know if your dog is comfortable around other dogs or pets, children, people, etc. Since I like to take dogs out to walk and play, this is very important information. I would also like to know how often your dog is used to exercising and playing so I can be sure s/he does not become bored or overexerted.
