Darcy is a tremendously caring sitter. While we miss the dogs when we are away, we never have to worry when she is looking after them. Thanks for the helpful dog food tips too.

Darcy was very responsive and came over for our initial meet/greet right away. She was extremely caring when interacting with our dogs and provided thorough updates including pictures throughout her stay with them. The pups were calm and relaxed upon our return home, which speaks volumes about the quality of Darcy's interactions with them. We are very particular about who is allowed to watch our dogs and Darcy passed with flying colors. You can have ...

Darcy's been a fantastic pet parent her entire life, from curling up to nap with our Springer Spaniel when she was two years old to throwing herself wholeheartedly into learning positive, reward-based training. Dogs have been a life-long love for her, and she has devoted a great deal of time and energy to learning the most effective ways to speak their language.

Positive-only experiences for dogs!

I currently foster dogs for the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR), walk dogs that need a second chance with All Breed Rescue and Training (ABRT), and own a rescue dog of my own, so I have practical experience with both behavior and medical issues in dogs. I have been through canine behavior modification training, am certified in animal first aid (including wound care and CPR), and am currently in a program to ...

What Darcy would like to know about your dog

Are there any behavior problems we need to work on? Any training goals I should know? Are they food or toy motivated? Any issues with human shyness?

I love all breeds, all sizes, and all skill levels!

I am very active and love to take dogs for walks in the neighborhood. If the dog isn't leash trained, I will spend time working with them. I love to snuggle, give belly rubs, work on or play fetch, and stimulate those doggie brains with positive training methods to help you meet your canine goals!

Please note that though I work full time, I work from home through phone and laptop which affords me the flexibility to be with my furry charges 24/7!
