Carol was great! She was made sure to let us know how they were and making sure they weren't pulling any fast one's on her. She even replaced a mug they broke which was very generous. At the end of our trip we came home to happy and sleepy dogs. I highly recommend her and we'll be using her services again!

Carol is wonderful! Very patient and willing to learn Mabel’s habits and spend time with her, since she is so scared. I think she would be good with several different types of animals and their energy levels. :-)

I’ve trusted Carol to watch my pup Mickey for years!!! She’s very reliable and communicative, and I know gives my baby the best care! She’s good about keeping an eye on his energy and appetite (he’s an old pup), and letting me know what concerns she has for my little boy! I love knowing that Mickey is safe and happy with Carol while I’m at work!!!!!!

About Carol

  • Verified Background Check

I like dogs more than people :-)

My name is Carol and I love dogs, but unfortunately cannot support one of my own. I frequently watch my friends’ dogs - I love that I’m helping them out while low-key renting a fur baby.
I trained my childhood dog, Lady (pictured above), to walk off the leash with me, to poo outdoors, and to acklowlege table manners. While I do not have any degree or certification for working with animals, I’ve ...

What Carol would like to know about your dog

I do not have a breed preference. I just need to know if the dog is more aggressive towards others than usual. As I stated before, all dogs are good dogs, but not all have been lucky enough to have always interacted with good humans.
I love rescues and am very sensitive to their specific needs. Aggression and shyness will never deter me from watching your dog. Due to my experience, I am always on the defensive while encountering other dogs on walks (because you never know), but it does help me to know what I’m working with.

When Carol watches your pet

I LOVE walks, especially if there’s a nearby park or trail. I opt for longer walks, so let me know the average time you walk your dog each day and I’ll accommodate that. I also enjoy running, so I’d be happy to take your dog on a jog if that’s what he or she is used to.
For long-term house sitting, walks, or drop in requests, I’m more than happy to take your dog with me to patio restaurants, parks and greenways that are not walkable from your home, or anything that your dog is used to doing while you’re away. But I would never travel with your dog without your approval.
