What a great dog sitter! Cori went above and beyond our expectations. Her attention to detail is impressive and it's clear that she takes her job seriously. We liked that she really wanted to get to know our dog beforehand. While we were away she sent lots of photos and updates. Our dog Juni absolutely loved her - we will be inviting Cori back whenever we can.
Cori was attentive and caring for our needy little boy :). Lots of pictures and updates... Finn came home and was in a great mood. I would recommend Cori again and again.
Menna had a great stay with Cori. She was well taken care of and returned home happy and better behaved. I think Cori even worked on her leash aggression from what I can tell. We will use her again!

What Cori would like to know about your dog
*ONLY FRIENDLY, WELL SOCIALIZED DOGS PLEASE! (Ex: Prior approval and success at any doggie daycare, frequents dog parks, etc. Your dog MUST be comfortable and suited to a pack environment for the $35 rate. ~Exception: If you plan on boarding your dog alone at an additional rate.
*I NEED 24 HRS NOTICE BEFORE DOG SITTING WHEN YOU RESERVE AN APPT SO I CAN GET BACK TO YOU IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME & COMPLETE A MEET & GREET. HOWEVER, if I am able to respond on such short notice it is likely I would need a ride to your home and possibly back from the visit. If there are any errands that need to be run I charge a nominal fee per errand.
I would like to know the dog's temperament. Any aggression issues? Does he / she gets along with other dogs, children, etc. What not to do (don't kiss dog's face or will nip, etc) Is the dog skittish? What is the dog's usual routine with you? Does he / she have any favorite toys or blanket? Favorite games? Medical issues? Special diet? Any on going training problems? What commands are difficult? Anxiety issues?
I love caring for all types of dogs, small and large. My favorite are the bully breeds, but there are so much more that I love so very much. It's difficult to pick one breed, but it would have to be the American Pit Bull because I have a huge heart for them since the first dog I owned was a pitty. It breaks my heart to know that there are so many of this breed at the pound because people tend to get this breed of dog and know little about caring for them and the responsibilities of owning such a breed.
*I also love cats, so if you need someone to watch your kitty, please let me know.
