Bodhi was so happy when I got home. He was calm and had clearly been in good hands while I was away. Carla is awesome!

Highly Compassionate & Experienced

My doggie soulmate, Pig, came from a West Virginia shelter and a year in foster care. It was love at first sight when she came to me: a rescued Brindle Pit mix with a cropped tail and ears. Through her, I learned about how to love and how to receive love; she had developed fear-based aggression before we found each other, and I worked with her to overcome those behaviors. After eight years together, she ...

What Carla would like to know about your dog

I love working with dogs of all sizes and breeds. “Bully” breeds are particularly welcome, because I know that they can be misunderstood and are frequently discriminated against.

At our meet-and-greet, these are the kinds of questions I may ask:
Are there any medical or physical issues/ailments I need to be aware of?
Any food allergies? When and how often do you like to give him treats? On walks, does he pick up food/trash?
Does she try to eat/roll in poo at all? Where does she typically like to do her "business?"
Are there any behaviors, habits, or commands you'd like me to work on while walking him? What commands does she know, and which might need practice?
Are there any particular routes or houses we should avoid? Why?
Does she have any "triggers?" What do you do if she has a fearful reaction to something or someone?
What is your post-walk routine like?

When Carla watches your pet

Our schedule will depend on what your dog is accustomed to; your regular schedule will help provide a guideline. I typically like to keep my days relatively open when I am pet-sitting and doing overnight stays at a client’s house. When we wake up, we'd do breakfast and go for a morning walk. After I go home to feed my animals, I’d come back for at least one midday visit to play, get outside for a walk, and take care of business. In the evening, we’d go for a walk after dinner if the dog is up for it and and cuddle and play at home before bed. Whatever needs or expectations you have, let me know so that we can craft the best schedule for your loved one! Dogs tend to get comfortable with me quickly, so we are likely to relax into our routine very quickly.
