I feel like I won the dog-sitting jackpot lottery with Dana. We're a household with two chihuahua mixes, one who has some fear-based aggression issues, which has prevented us from being able to leave him behind while traveling (traveling with an aggressive dog is stressful, too), so my husband and I have resorted to taking turns traveling solo. We were ready for a trip where the two of us could go at the same time ...

this is the first time ive ever left my pups where I didn't worry at all. Dana is the best! I think they were disappointed to see me come in the door rather than Dana. would not hesitate to use her again.

After having read through a LOT of sitter profiles, I chose Dana to puppy-sit my 2 large GSD "teens" for 2 weeks (my first time leaving them with a sitter), and I am so glad I did.

Love of The Pup!

I am a positive reinforcement, clicker dog trainer, pet sitter and walker. I have certifications in Canine Behavior and Learning that are rooted in the science of animal behavior. I strive to continually learn and apply science supported, rewards based, operant conditioning methods to dog training, pet sitting, socializing and walking. I LOVE dogs and pups of all kinds and believe that mutual respect is the basis of true learning, understanding and communication between humans ...

What Dana would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences - come one, come all. : )

Before sitting a dog I like to know if there is a bite history with people or other dogs (this does not deter me - I just need to know). I also like to converse with the parents about what foods and treats the pup likes/dislikes and what general habits the pup has. I prefer to meet the parents and pup in the house before starting the sitting process.

When Dana watches your pet

Time I'll spend with your dog
Several hours in the morning and evening for breakfast/dinner and walks/runs/outings outside to the beach and trails. Several hours towards hanging out and cuddling in the evening and sometimes mid-day depending upon the pups needs and my schedule. One to two hours towards clicker excercises and games.
