Debbie has been so great with my dog Doodle. She makes homemade dog treats that Doodle loves and she treats my dog like she's part of the family. She always send us pics of our dog enjoying the outdoors and keep us updated while we are away. I never have to worry about Doodle when she's with Debbie. I know she is being well cared for.
Debbie is just wonderful with animals. She had taken care of Samantha for
many years while we were away on trips. She went out of her way to make sure she was walked and played with-- brushed and hugged. Sam passed away but will never be forgotten.
We have two high energy, loving dogs and Debbie was great with them! Very patient with them and could handle their jumping and multiple kisses :)
Just moved to VA -Trainer & Sitter
Hello! My name is Debbie. As a dog lover, I grew up with dogs and I truly love animals. I'm comfortable with dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes. Some past jobs I have had were working at a Vet Hospital and teaching Dog Obedience and wellness classes.
My per trip fee is $25 regardless of how many pets I pet sit. Please keep that in mind when you are looking at other sitters fees ...
What Debbie would like to know about your dog
I would like to know their age, breed, and size. What a day in the life of your dog typically looks like ( eating schedule, habits, etc.). What kind of activities your dogs enjoys, if there are any dietary, health, or allergy concerns. If your dog is on any kind of medication or has other behaviors I should know about. I would also like to know if they have separation anxiety and if they have been known to destroy things in the house due to this. I went through this with my own dog and would appreciate the honesty.
Also, your dog must be spayed or neutered and up to date on all of their shots.
