Charissa was great! We felt comfortable with her immediately! Our dogs loved her. She text us pictures and communicated with us everyday. We will definitely use her next time we go out of town!!

This was our first time using DogVacay and Charissa. Our dogs are getting older and we liked the idea of having a sitter stay in our home overnight with them. Charissa sent us texts and photos which helped alleviate our "pet parent" nervousness. We came home to stress free dogs. She checked our mail and washed the bedding. We will definitely use Charissa again the next time we need a doggie sitter.

Super Science Sitter

About this sitter:
I spent almost 10 years as a zookeeper working with anything from lions and tigers to meerkats and kangaroos. I have also had many furry friends of my own. I grew up on a farm, was in 4-H, and raised rabbits, dairy feeders, and steers. I now live in an apartment that has a grassy area for dogs to play in and enjoy. I am also very close to two bike trails ...

What Charissa would like to know about your dog

I would love to know the ins and outs of your dog. Toys that they love, are they afraid of anything, where they like to sleep, when they eat, anything that would help me make their time away from you easier. I will take care of any breed of dog.
