Francesca is absolutely the best. It was a gross day out, and she has a large beautiful fenced in property, but she still took the dogs on a field trip to the beach! Francesca is much more than a dog sitter, she is a dog trainer and a dog lover and it shows. I get amazing photos during my puppy’s stay and I feel so good leaving her there. It’s nice feeling like ...
I will definitely be using Francesca's services again. She is a knowledgeable dog trainer who is very actively involved with her dogs. Francesca took our dog Heidi on a beach excursion for the day with her own dogs and sent wonderful pictures. Heidi had a wonderful time during her stay!
Bentley’s stay with Francesca went wonderful. I always felt up to date on what was happening as Francesca sent many wonderful photos and stayed in contact. It was like a doggie vacation as Francesca took her out on real adventures to parks and beaches which I’m sure made Bentley feel special and kept her too busy to miss her mommy and daddy.
Your dog's new favorite place 2 go!
I have 3 children who are grown and living on their own. People know me as an animal owner/lover/communicator since always. I've been an owner/breeder since '96 of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. While I gravitate to larger dogs, I love all breeds -mutts too. I'm who friends and family come to for advice and help with training issues etc, so I'm opening myself up to doing this beyond my circle of friends. I'm available ...
What Francesca would like to know about your dog
As suggested by Rover, I insist upon a meet and greet on neutral turf before you come to my home.
My clients' dogs get along with others and enjoy our car outings. They come when called. Typically we get up around 5:30/6, go outside, are fed soon after, go back outside for "morning business" and a run/play-time out there. At that point we go for our daily outing in hopes of having the places we go to ourselves. When we come home, we have access to the yard, the porch, and the inside downstairs and beds for relax/rest time. They're fed supper around 5:30/6, continue to have access to outside until 9:30/10:30pm when we do a last outside visit making sure everyone has had a last pee before they go into their crates with a treat, or settle onto their beds for the night.
I prefer non-barkers. I discourage barking when it is in play out of respect for my neighbors. (Barking at strangers driving in is not discouraged.) I correct jumping up and begging. I prefer not to take on counter-surfers, and escape artists.
I have an inside and an outside "party basket" which holds a number of chew toys, balls, antlers, etc and are replenished with new frequently. If your dog tends to pull toys apart, please let me know so I can give them the sturdy toys or ones you bring for them.
