I can't say enough good things about Dakota! She was flexible with my odd schedule so we could meet before I left town, was very quick to respond to messages, sent thoughtful summaries of the visits, and was so patient with my shy/anxious pup. I felt very confident leaving my pups in her care and will definitely be booking with her again!
Dakota was so very patient with our special needs pup. We appreciate that she took the time and effort to make sure he was comfortable and always with a smile.
Another fabulous stay! My dog is always so well cared for.
Happy Days with Dakota!
I have always loved dogs and cannot imagine my life without my babies. While I grew up with dogs, it wasn't until I adopted my first girl about six years ago a that I really understood what it takes to truly take care of them and train them for a happy lifestyle. I haven't looked back, as I adopted my second pup two years ago! I am well-versed in animal behavior and look for signs ...
What Dakota would like to know about your dog
**Beginning 7/1/18, I will be attending college full time with a very part-time job working from home. With the exception of the two days a week I have to attend class (I expect to be gone for 8 hours including travel time on those days) I will be free to spend time with your pups and other animals!
Please let me know your expectations for my visit/stay with your pup, including walks or park visits, how long you'd like me to stay in your home, if I should expect to stay overnight, etc. Let me know if there is anything around the house that I would need to do, including trash days, any security codes I'd need, any neighbors/friends in the area who can help in an emergency, and other house rules like if visitors are allowed while I am in your home. I'd love to know what your pup's typical day is like so that I can continue their routine to the best of my ability. It helps to know of any behaviors I should watch out for (darting out doors or reactivity when on a leash, for example) and what I can do to make sure everyone remains safe and happy. I love any and all dogs from puppies to seniors, and can handle multiple dogs without issue.
