Experienced pet sitter in Magnolia!

Hi! My name is Gretchen and I live in an old farmhouse 1 block from Discovery Park in Magnolia with my two spaniels, Casper and Braam. I work from home as of January 2016 and I am excited to be able to offer 24/7 supervision in home for your pup! While I traditionally offer both in-home and traveling pet sitting, I am now able to provide doggy daycare in my home, and so far ...

When Gretchen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We (the dogs and I) love Discovery Park! We are just 1 block from the SE corner of the park and we walk there often. We also sometimes just walk around the neighborhood, or take trips up to the dog park at Magnolia Manor.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I want to make guest dogs comfortable so I am flexible in terms of sleeping arrangements. We have plenty of space for beds or crates, whether in a bedroom with me or alone in the living room. Some of my guest dogs sleep in the bed with me, if they are used to this at home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
As much as possible - dogs live as part of our family. Since I work from home, I do have to be able to sit at a computer for the greater part of 8 hours Monday through Friday, but the dogs can be with me, or playing with each other, the entire time. I find both my dogs and guest dogs end up sleeping at my feet most of the day, with frequent potty breaks outside.

Extra house-sitting services
Part of taking care of any animal is keeping their living space in order, so we fully expect to do additional home-specific tasks on traveling pet sitting arrangements.
