Dawn did a great job with Scrappy. She really went above and beyond our expectations. I can not rave enough about how good of a job she did with him. She took him to a nearby park and took lots of pictures of him. He was having fun in all the pictures. He really liked her. Dawn is exactly what anybody would want in a dogsitter!

What Dawn would like to know about your dog

I would like to know your dogs personality; anything that makes them, them- Preferences, social particulars, dietary needs, allergies, activity requirements, medications or therapy needs, what type of music do they like? This is your furry child; I have extensive experience as a medic, firefighter and human-patient care tech. I treat animals with all the love I would any human in my care. So any information about your dog will be helpful to provide the best care that I can.

We have a short walk to several parks, including White Clay Park. I love making puzzle treats and enrichment activities for animals to keep their minds and bodies active. Also, love cuddling and just hanging out with animals (especially dogs!). I can take a lot of photos and offer baths & brushes.
