Elaine is great. She took care of our two boys while we were gone for almost two weeks! She even pilled our evil cat every day (Its not fun). She sent pictures and stayed in touch with us on a regular basis. I love that Elaine has the Verified Background Badge and the Trustcloud Badge. We knew after our first meeting that she was an animal person. She also took good care of our house ...

Pup-lover extraordinaire!

Your dog is welcome to stay in my home. There are two cats present in our home, so please keep that in mind when assessing a home where your dog will stay.

About this sitter:
I've been house- and pet-sitting for over 10 years. I love having the opportunity to temporarily borrow your pets while you're out of town and care for your home - living with roommates for years on end can be wonderful, but ...

What Elaine would like to know about your dog

If they're good with children, if they're good on a leash, how they interact with other dogs (large or small), favorite toys, how they react to cats, squirrels, etc., what they try to get away with that they're not supposed to be doing, whether they need more or less attention/exercise, if they are food/toy/people aggressive... you name it. :-) I love Shiba Inus and Corgis, just my preferences, but I love all dog breeds.

When Elaine watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Our neighborhood is a solid combination of hills and flat surfaces, so we can do longer walks throughout the neighborhood, or if your pup can't handle that, we can just do shorter walks on my street and a few nearby streets. There is also a dog park just a half mile down the hill that I really enjoy taking dogs to, but please let me know the specifics of what your dog's park personality might be. :-)

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My bedroom, on the floor or in our spare bedroom, accommodations can be made for various circumstances.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Pups get a 30-60 minute morning walk in the morning and 60+ minute walk immediately after work. We can discuss the finer details of how long your pet can be left alone via email.

Most importantly, I will respect your home. I treat every home I visit as if it is my own. I keep spaces clean and organized, ensuring it is the same when you return as when you left. I am happy to have the opportunity to keep your pet at home, lessening pet anxiety and stress while you're away.
