Emily watched our four dogs over our spring break vacation this year. Words cannot even begin to explain the relief we were given by choosing her to watch our dogs. We have a very hard time trusting anyone to watch our furbabies, and this was our first time having a stranger watch them. Emily sent us an update via text every day to let us know how everything was going. She even sent us pictures ...

Emily was just awesome. I think Maverick is actually upset I came home....haha. First time I have actually enjoyed a vacation knowing my pet was in such great hands. Maverick has always had an issue with eating and was typically worse when I was away, but not this time. He ate better for Emily than he does me on a daily basis. I highly recommend Emily for your pet sitting needs. I am so ...

Emily was absolutely wonderful. I had a very old cat, 18 years, who needed a lot of attention and took medication. I was so concerned about leaving him. He is pretty independent, but the attention he needed had to do with making sure he didn't fall in the litter box because of the arthritis in his back legs and just generally watching him because he was so old. I also have a dog who is ...

Pets are Family~

I will look after any animal, not just dogs, so please don't hesitate to ask. I offer sliding scale for those who have multiple pets.

I also provide Reiki/Angel Therapy/Spiritual Medicine for animals. $20 per session, or free in addition to another service.

I have been taking care of & rescuing animals since I was a child. I have experience with a wide variety of different animals, from squirrels & turtles, to cats ...

What Emily would like to know about your dog

I prefer to house sit instead of boarding at my own home (with the the exception of caged animals). I prefer this because over the years I notice most dogs have more issues adjusting in a new environment while their humans are away. This can result in issues such as marking when a dog is already house trained. It is also safer for your own pet- Most kennels or places where you have a gathering of dogs from multiple places can increase this chance of your dog catching fleas & other pathogens. Say for example a past clients dog has fleas, it can transfer to my house, & then to your dog if he stays afterwards. That is a situation I would like to prevent as it is my top priority to make sure your pet is healthy & safe.

I would like to know of any medical issues; habits, rules, or schedules they are used to; any behavioral problems or separation anxiety; which commands you use so that I can stick with what they know; feeding instructions; how long of a walk they usually get; any other chores you would like me to do during house sitting (i.e. take out trash to the curb, bring in mail, etc).
