Dorothy has stayed with my two high need dogs for at least three vacations. It's great to have her in my home 24/7, and to know the dogs can be in their own comfortable and stress-free environment instead of a kennel. She is reliable, clean, and great with the animals. Each one gets two-20 to 30 minute walks a day, as well as time in the backyard. Dorothy even checks in on our small ...

One can enjoy vacation knowing Dorothy is back at our home taking excellent care of our dog/dogs. When she first came to meet us she immediately bonded with Mouse by giving him treats she had with her. She took him for several walks each day, brushed him regularly and gave him all the TLC he desired.
At the end of her first stay she gave us a good suggestion, which we took, and was ...

Dorothy A has taken extremely good care of our dogs during our recent trip. She made sure they got their supplements, walked them daily, groomed them and she made sure they were safe. She comes once a week to walk them now that we're back. We appreciate Dorothy A. more than we can say! I highly recommend her for dog sitting/walking!

Dogs Kept Safe & Amused Since 2001

The past fifteen years for me have included being a volunteer dog walker at Berkeley Animal Shelter; working for animal rescue non-profit The MILO Foundation; being a dog handler at three dog daycare facilities. I currently am guardian to a multi-cat household, so I have knowledge about being a caregiver to canines and felines. I aim to maintain a fun, stress-free, and compassionate relationship with all the furry ones I care for, past and present.

When Dorothy watches your pet

Your dog will have my undivided attention, as I never book more than one pet sitting job at a time. Pet sitting is my job, so I won't be away during the day, and your dog will never be left alone. I usually stick to the daily walk route a pet's owner normally takes the dog(s), so the dog's routine is the same, so it's familiar to them. If the dog doesn't have a regular set route where they walk, we would just take walks around the neighborhood. If it's an elderly dog, we would stroll around the neighborhood.

If your dog agrees, I will be happy to give him or her a bath, trim nails, and / or clean ears.

For cat sitting alone, my fee is $40 per overnight stay.
For dog sitting, and there is a cat in the household, my fee is my standard $60 per overnight stay, I do not charge extra for the cat sitting.
