Emily did such a great job taking care of our pup while we were away. She kept us updated on how our dog was doing and was communicative. She even bought little Olive a special bone to chew on! Thanks again Emily!

Emily took excellent care of our pup when we were out of town! She was very friendly and accommodating in our interactions and sent lots of pictures of our dog during her stay, all of which really put our minds at ease when we were away. Our dog came back very happy and had obviously had her share of love and playtime during her time with Emily. Highly reccommend! We will certainly be reaching out ...

Play oriented home for gentle dogs

When your dog stays with us (myself and my dog Sunny), we take a walk in the early afternoon for 1-2 hours. I work from home for the most part, so during the rest of the day dogs are given free roam of the house and fully fenced yard. We have a few regulars for daycare, so there will often be one or sometimes two other dogs at the house during the week. My living ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

All breeds welcome! I do require that dogs be potty trained and completely non-aggressive. I have a zero tolerance policy for aggression. Usually there are 1-3 other dogs at the house at any given time, so it is important that all dogs are well socialized.

The more information you can give me, the easier it will be for me to ensure that your dog has the best time possible. The following are helpful questions for me to ask so that I can be pro-active in making sure your dog (and other guest dogs) are comfortable, safe, and happy.

-Is your dog ok to be left unattended in a normally furnished living space? (any destructive tendencies such as couch chewing, wall scratching, door biting etc) When I leave the house, dogs are given full access to most of the house.
-How long is your dog used to being left for? (the longest I leave the house for any given week is about 5 hours, which happens on average once a week). More typically, I am only gone from the house from 1-3 hours a day.
-Is your dog an excessive barker?
-Does your dog have leash, toy, or food aggression? I have worked with dogs with all these behaviors and feel confident in providing proactive care.
-Does your dog have submissive incontinence or marking behaviors? Submissive incontinence seems very common and usually after a day or so of pampering seems to resolve itself, but dogs who mark during a meet and greet will not be invited back. It seems a more difficult process to correct in my experience, and is damaging to the communal living space.
-Is your dog an escape artist? if so, do they dig out, dart out, or jump? If your dog does not come reliably when called, I require a harness to be provided for walks, as collars are often easily slipped.
-Does your dog have any allergies? We only use gluten free dairy free treats to be safe but there's lots of allergens out there!
-Is your dog fearful or certain objects or people? My partner, Richard, and I are the only two people living in the house, and we only occasionally have guests over (never more than 2-3 people).
-Does your dog get along with all dogs? (have they at any point in their life attacked another dog?) Does your dog tend to be dominant or submissive?

My dog Sunny is a little intimidated by very large dogs, so we unfortunately cannot take dogs over about 100 lbs.
