Emily Fossen served as our house-sitter/dog caregiver over the past two years on numerous occasions, from 3 day weekends to 3 weeks while we were out of the country. She studied with me in college, so I knew her well and selected her because of her absolute sense of responsibility and her warm, caring nature. Our dogs, one senior cancer survivor and one rambunctious young fellow, love her so much that they adopted her ...

Dog's Best Friend

Hello! My name is Emily, and I'm already so stoked to meet your pets!

I grew up walking and caring for my neighbors' dogs since I couldn't have my own, and now I really enjoy pet-sitting for other people.

I finally, finally have my own dog now, a 14 month old Husky/Australian Shepherd mix named Kafka. My roommates and I have had a lot of fun raising him. He's so much fun (and probably ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

I'm open to any breed, size, age, and most temperaments. I've had experience with very young pups as well as senior dogs. I'm not intimidated by dogs unless they're very obviously going to attack. I've encountered nervous/protective dogs but have been able to get them to warm up to me.
Before I care for you dog, of course I'd like to know if he or she has any medical or behavioral needs-- the more informed I can be, the better!

When Emily watches your pet

I like to look for nearby parks, but if there's a cool place a little further I'll load the kennel in my car and we'll head there!
I'm a fan of practicing tricks, fetch, and long tummy rub sessions.
Additionally, I'm naturally organized and enjoy cleaning, so if I dogsit for you there's a good chance I'll end up doing dishes, making beds, etc.
One important thing to note is that I typically work 8 hour shifts Tues-Sat and am not always able to leave work for lunch to check on pets while I'm working. If your pet is able to be left alone for up to 8 hours, then this will work!
