We love Dawn. My girls are always happy to see here and Frankie. And it is obvious that she adores them. Excellent care, consistent updates, super professional. All good things to say about our experiences with Dawn over the years.

Dawn took excellent care of my dog. I am definitely an over-attached dog owner and it’s so nice to be able to go away and not have to worry at all whether he is ok. She truly enjoys caring for the dogs. She sends me updates and photos while I’m away which I really like.

Thanks Kim! It was so nice to have him back. He's my Big Shaddie Boy! ❤️

Dawn was super. She was very detailed in her questions and had a very well planned process for assessing if our dog would be a good fit for her and her home (and wonderful dog Frankie). We had a meet and greet where she met our dog and we saw she really was very knowledgeable about dogs by the questions she asked, information she shared about behavior and the way she interacted with our pooch ...

Thank you Craig and Tanja! Sailor was as absolute pleasure! We look forward to the next time he joins us!

What Dawn would like to know about your dog

I will need to meet your dog before any in-home or client sitting. So, please note, I cannot take last minute requests for a dog I am not familiar with. At our Meet and Greet, we will discuss your dog's behavior, under a variety of circumstances, and his/her likes and dislikes, as I assess your dog's temperament and disposition. You will also have an opportunity to observe my dog's interaction with yours. I'll tell you what you can expect in terms of what his/her day will look like and how we will close the day for the evening. I don't have any breed preferences, but I will only consider unneutered males under 1 year, on a case by case basis. Because I have a dog, it is important that our pets get along and everyone in the house understands that I am the Head of the Pack :-). If it doesn't appear that we have the right fit, we don't have to move forward, as we want it to be a fun and safe stay for everyone. My dog, Frankie, is easy going, silly, energetic, shares his toys and treats, and is happy to have other furry friends around. He even thinks cats are cool. At our Meet and Greet, you can expect him to be welcoming, likely excited, and playful if your dog is willing. However, he can also sense if your dog is shy or not willing to open up initially and he will act accordingly and not push it. He is pretty chilled through most of the day, sleeping or cuddling, but enjoys play time too.

When Dawn watches your pet

Walking along the trail behind my house is solace for me and your pet. When weather is a problem, we have in house play and exercise. I have a house full of toys and my dog has no problem with sharing. If there are particular activities your dog enjoys, Im open to that too. Im a cuddler, but if your pet isn't a fan of cuddles, we can find something that he/she is a fan of. I like to send daily pics and/or videos to you while your dog is visiting or Im visiting him/her.
