Esme did a great job watching our dog Molly! She sent updates with pictures throughout the day. Molly seemed very happy with Esme and we will definitely want to use her services again!

A trusted person with my dogs. Stevie and Zoe love Esme, which makes me jealous and happy all at the same time. I love having peace of mind when I have to leave them and I do with Esme.

What Esme-Aisling would like to know about your dog

For me, the most important part of your dog's stay happens before the stay at the optional, but highly encouraged, complimentary Meet & Greet.
Dogs are unique individuals--that's why they capture our hearts. Your dog is not like any other and at our meet & greet I'll try to get a good feel for your dog's unique personality traits so I can give my best quality care. I will ask questions about his normal routine so I can mimic his or her schedule as closely as possible. This is also your opportunity to see where your dog will be so you're confident a qualified person is keeping your dog safe, happy, and most of all, loved.

As promised here a few tips that may help your dog be happier & healthier.

Does your dog go off his food when someone else cares for him? Try this: when feeding your dog at home invent a phrase to announce feeding time. I have clients who tell their dogs it’s time for a “good dinner.” Use whatever phrase you like but use it consistently over time.

What does using a special phrase do for your dog? Well it acts like a secret code. You know how dogs will calm down when a stranger says their names? How they look at the person with their heads cocked as if to ask, “Hey! How do you know my name? Are we buddies?” Well, the dinner code word process produces the same result. When a caregiver knows the dinner words it makes your dog feel at home because something he associates with home is now happening in another place!

Does your dog have thunder anxiety? It may not actually be the noise that is scaring your dog. Atmospheric changes can create conditions that increase static electricity. For some dogs static builds up in their coats producing a mild, but unpleasant and uncanny charge. It is the static charge that is actually frightening them. The thunder is simply the thing that announces that the charge is coming.

If you notice your dog trying to get into tight spaces, especially a tile floor like in a bathroom, he may be trying to ground himself. Try this: place a rubber mat in the area where your dog goes during a storm. The mat will ground your dog and he’ll soon get over his fear! You can then move the mat to a “thunder safe zone” where your dog can go at the sound of the first boom.

Want to switch your dog’s food but dread tummy upset? In addition to following directions for the food switch, try adding some canned pumpkin to your dog’s diet. Be sure to get ground pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin is a great remedy for both doggie diarrhea and constipation.

When Esme-Aisling watches your pet

I like to find out what my client's dog and his human's preferences are. Some clients love to take their pups to the dog park. Others prefer other places for play. I have a fenced in yard, so we can play fetch and frisbee right outside my home. My client's preference is my preference.
