Darcie was great! She took wonderful care of our dog and even sent pix and updates to let us know everything was going well. We will definitely reach out to her again for our next trip. Thanks, Darcie!

Darcie took amazing care of Harper (our dog) and totally understood her needs. We're so used to Harper coming back from boarding a little stressed out a frazzled but Harper seemed almost unconvinced with was worth leaving and coming back home. Will absolutely look to book with Darcie again in the future.

Darcie was wonderful! She was super accommodating, gave my pup a lot of TLC, and kept me posted about their adventures while I was away. I highly recommend Darcy - five stars!!

Snuggles and Daily Dog Park Visits

I live near Magnuson Off Leash area, so there are daily visits to the park (1-2). I am home much of the time on weekends, so I'm available to give your dog all the attention he/she wants.

I have a sweet, older whippet who is welcoming of other dogs (especially other sighthounds).

Why I love dog sitting
Lifetime dog lover. Grew up with collies and have had my whippet for 6 years now. I ...

What Darcie would like to know about your dog

I have a whippet, so sighthounds are ALWAYS welcome. I would prefer dogs that are dog-friendly and leash-trained. I'm especially fond of senior dogs and enjoy their company. My building has an elevator, so no worries about having to navigate stairs. I live on the third floor and my building has indoor hallways and self-closing doors, so if you have an escape artist, they wouldn't be able to get outside without opposable thumbs. :)

When Darcie watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Most of the time we walk in Magnuson Park, but if your dog is not good with other dogs, we can go around the View Ridge neighborhood or down the Burke Gilman Trail.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere he/she wants! I've got dog beds and no furniture is off limits, so they have their choice. My dog sleeps in my bed and I'm comfortable with an extra if that's what they're used to.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home much of the day on weekends, so I'm available for lots of scritch and scratch. I also make 1-2 daily trips to the dog park for about an hour.

I work full-time on weekdays, but can make it home for a lunchtime potty break.
