There are not enough kind words I can say about Emily! This was our first experience leaving our sweet boy with a sitter and while I was nervous at first, meeting Emily and seeing her interaction with her own dogs and introduction with our Harley immediately put my mind at ease. She is the most kind, caring, and compassionate soul! I did not worry one minute while we were on a week-long vacation. She kept ...

Emily is absolutely AMAZING!!!! I entrusted her with my furbabies Chloe & Coco and she took care of them as if they were her own. I received detailed updates and pictures during my vacation, which really put me at ease and allowed me to enjoy my trip. My dogs were very timid at first, but Emily was very patient with them and they warmed up to her within the first 48 hours. I am so ...

*Small* Dog Sitter in Hermitage

First, a little about me: I have decided to pet-sit for 3 reasons:
1. Dogs are God's very best creation
2. Socializing my own dogs, Hope and Murphy
3. Blending my life passions (dog welfare, travel, helping others): I do my fair share of solo international travel any chance I get. Well, occasionally, I come across causes that tug at my heart so much so that I feel compelled to do more. Going with that, ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

Be sure to let me know the drop-off and pickup times ahead of time so we can make sure we get on the same page. I teach English online to kids in China every morning from 5-9am (and some evenings), so pick-up and drop-off must be worked around these times.
---------------------------------------------------------------
IS YOUR DOG *FULLY* HOUSEBROKEN? If NOT, please buy a bellyband (male) or doggy diaper (female) so that your dogs will be able to play freely and have open access to all parts of my home. Without a bellyband or diaper (even if I am at home with them), I will be forced to crate them for the bulk of the day and just let them out here and there for a little exercise. My own dogs wear bellybands and diapers here and there when in new environments with new dogs, so this really shouldn't be a big deal at all. I ask this of you, because it is in the best interest of your furbaby; I want your dogs to have have fun and have open access to my home just as my own dogs do. :)

PUPPY OWNERS: Because of the extra work puppies require and the resulting accidents at this young age, I must charge the full puppy rate for each puppy I am keeping. When they become completely housebroken, the rates will go down! Please bring a LOT of puppy pads when you drop them off.

When Emily watches your pet

First, I fully understand the anxiety you have about leaving your little one with a stranger, as I STILL get that same anxiety when I leave mine with their sitter (even as wonderful as she is!) But rest assured, your furbaby will be treated no different than my own....and mine are spoiled rotten! :)

As for logistics: I live in a townhome with a doggy door, so there will be full access to my house and (small) fenced-in yard 24/7. Your doggy is welcomed to sleep with me and my dogs in my bed, if you are ok with that. If not, whatever setup you wish! Plenty of playtime & walks! Treats and food at your discretion. Will give any medications timely, as needed. I work from home and am home 95-100% of the time, excluding weekends, when I go to my boyfriend's home on Old Hickory Lake. And even then, I am with the dogs almost 100% of the time. Your furbaby will NOT be neglected! Also, to give additional peace of mind, I worked for 8 years as a veterinary pharmaceutical sales rep. I am very familiar with most all dog medications and am friends with most all the veterinarians around town, as well. Finally, call me obsessive but for those times when I must leave my dogs, I even have a home camera that allows me to keep an eye on them from afar!

REQUIREMENTS: up-to-date vaccination records; monthly flea/tick prevention is a must, as we frown upon any flea infestations in our home. You can buy this at a store like WalMart on the cheap.
