Diane is great and my dog loves her! She is very knowledgeable, asks the right questions, and will keep you up-to-date on your dog while you're traveling. Highly recommended!

Diane was great with my pup! She asked lots of questions on our meet and greet and I loved how much thought she'd put into how to make dogs feel at home. She was responsive, attentive, easy to work with and clearly loves dogs. She's a winner!

Diane lives in my building and she became the go-to walker, potty breaker supplier and all-around savior of our dog Meeko when we would find ourselves stuck late at work or in need of extra attention for some reason or another. Sometimes she would go above and beyond and let him hang at her house for a few hours if she needed to work. Not only did we appreciate it, M-Dawg continues to show his ...

I will come when you call

I don't have a dog of my own at the moment--I'm still digesting a loss. But you do!
In the time that I have been dog-less, I have become the de facto Dog Mama for various dogs in my building, including a wild man chihuahua, a blind pug and a cur-(no pun intended)mudgeonly corgi mix.
I like all activities dogs like: walking, hiking, fetching (well, throwing), sitting, staring, being rewarded with treats and ...

What Diane would like to know about your dog

I like to know what your schedule is--walk times, feeding times, feeding rituals, if he or she is a garbage vacuum on walks and so on and so forth. Since I live in an apartment, I especially like to know if elevators or stairs are an issue or if running into other dogs in the lobby or elevator could pose a problem. I also like to know if your dog knows any commands and, if so, if you want me to maintain a schedule for reinforcing them.

As for breed preferences, I like all affectionate, affable dogs but I especially like labs, goldens, pugs, dachshunds, all size poodles and all their various derivations of oodles (labradoodles, schnoodles, golden doodles, bichoodles, Havoodles, cotonoodles ...), corgies, Bedlington terriers, springer and King Charles spaniels, boxers and French and English bulldogs.

When Diane watches your pet

I am a car-free human, so I won't be packing your dog off on day trips to the beach or the Gorge. I am, however, an avid walker and have the Park Blocks right outside my door, which presents an easy walk to PSU and its dog play area or the Waterfront and its mini river beaches. We can also go to Overton dog park in the Pearl if a particular dog likes that sort of interaction. I love to throw balls and Frisbees and if it's raining or snowing, we can play fetch in the hallway of my building. Also, all guest dogs are issued their own freshly washed sheepskin rug, their own towel, and will be provided with an owner-approved chew toy. Guest dogs also can select from an assortment of balls and toys for indoor amusement.
