Charissa has taken care of my golden retriever for days at a time on several occasions. I trust her without reservation to ensure that my dog is safe, happy, and healthy!

Charissa has watched my dog, Jack, on many different occasions and each time she has taken such great care of him! She is very responsible and is very reliable. She always updates me with fun pictures of them on a walk or cuddling on the couch. I highly recommend Charissa as a dog sitter!

What Charissa would like to know about your dog

I'm best with large, social dogs but I don't mind a shy dog either. I'd like to know whether your dog pulls on the leash, and whether they're friendly with other dogs both on-leash and off (although neither of these are deal breakers).
