About Carol C.:

I have cared for pets for over 10 years. I started out by taking a job as a Kennel Tech at Lake Grove Veterinary Clinic where I did massive amounts of cleaning but loved it as I enjoy being physically fit. I fed, watered and organized playgroups for 50 dogs. I found it fascinating learning the different breeds and sizes that enjoy playing together. Eventually after noticing certain times of the year kennels were empty I asked to start a dog day care. It became wildly successful as I equally loved the parents of my dogs, keeping them close with daily report cards, dog birthday parties and social events. Later I worked for Lexi Dog Social Club in Portland supervising their dog playgroups. Eventually taking dogs into my home to board as that service was not offered then by Lexi Dog. My three children grew up surrounded by dogs of all breeds, now amazing people with their knowledge and experience. I have lots of references as even when their pets cross the rainbow bridge they still stay in contact with me to say hi to my kids that their pets grew up with. I love what I do and know you will too. Give me a try as I will go out of my way to keep you connected even while you are away with phone calls and pictures so you may sleep easy at night. I will be sleeping with your puppy dog or close by what ever they prefer.
Your pup will also always be with me,never home alone.......

About this sitter:
I am very easy to talk to and be with. I love babysitting dogs and enjoy most, the ones who need extra attention to be comfortable in a new setting away from Mom,Dad and siblings. I am patient,kind,loving and have tons of experience with dogs. I stay up to date on dog food recalls,treats and toxins in their enviornment,such as house cleaning supplies,yard fertilizers,foods such as rasiens that are poisonness etc....I want my clients to go on their trips without having to worry. I listen and will follow even the most detailed instructions and enjoy getting to know each dog as an individual not a breed.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

I have been a dog lover all my life continuing to read,study them and take on new challenges every year to learn more about them. I have had many different breeds myself and babysat lots more. Have I been bit? Yes,lots of times but never out of anger,mostly over food issues or fear. I have never met a dog I didn't like. I am very good at watching dogs with separation anxiety as I don't mind having them follow me every where I go,even into the bath room...lol Small insecure dogs I carry in a doggie sling around my neck.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

I would like to know if your baby is food aggressive, prefers to sleep with a person or in their own kennel. I also need to know if they take any medication or if they are an escape artist, meaning they need to be on a leash even if they are in my back yard- which is fenced, along with any separation anxiety issues they might have.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes. I have done so,often around the clock and I dont charge extra for it.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

All my time. If I need to go somewhere I'll take your dog. This is what I live to do........

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

My back yard isnt huge but I like it that way so I can see my dogs at all times. It is fully fenced and secure. I never leave dogs unattended in my back yard. I sit outside and watch them play or I play with them.

Where will my dog sleep?

With me or where the dog prefers.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

I will walk your dog around my neighborhood which loves dogs so she or he will make lots of friends or over to the huge park up my street that has lots of beautiful trails to walk........I will walk your dog with a neighbor dog that needs to get out if they are a good match also.....

Peach

Age: 2 years, 2 mo. old
Weight: 30 lbs.
Breed: Mixed

Peach is a wonderful Chocolate Lab,Chi mix who is just the right size to play with any dog. She can be very gentle with small dogs,like her two sisters who are full Chi s and tiny,Bella Cutey Pop and Princess Chicken or she can play rough with bigger dogs who want to because she has a stocky rugged body. She shares her toys,her food,her energy freely,she loves everyone and thing as she was stuck on a short rope beside a business for hours on end with no attention,water,food. She found me at McDonalds when she broke lose begging for food and water. I took her home and when the parents said they didnt want her,she was a burden,I let myself fall in love. No regrets,she is a true blessing and I enjoy how she can make even fearful dogs comfortable in my,our home in nothing flat.

We felt very comfortable leaving Captain with Carol. I enjoyed the pictures she sent while we were out on a camping trip. I will definitely use Carol in the future.

My puppy has done great at Carol's house- he had a few other friends to play with there so came home calm and tired! Will definitely re-book future stays with Carol.

Carol watched our Sheltie. We had a fantastic experience and so did Meisa our dog. Carol communicated well and took lots of pictures and sent them to us. She took exceptional care of our dog. When we picked up our dog after our trip she was very happy and relaxed. We will have Meisa stay with Carol in the future. Great care!!

Carol was amazing. My dog is incredibly co-dependent and I'm questioning if she even missed me;) I'll book with Carol again for sure!

Carol took wonderful care of my Kira. She stayed in complete contact, sending pictures and updates throughout Kira's stay. Carol is a person who obviously loves dogs and enjoys watching them, and she does a great job!

I could not have asked for a better experience. My dog enjoyed his stay and Carol kept me updated throughout with emails and pictures.
