Holly was absolutely fantastic! Limmy was super happy when I picked her up and I could tell she'd been well cared for! Holly kept me up to date every day with pictures and texts so I knew my pup was in good hands over the holidays! She took her on long walks and runs and played with her a ton! Thanks for showing Limmy such a wonderful time!

First time using Rover and first time using a 3rd party dog sitter. Holly very responsive via chat and flexible in the pickup/dropoff schedule. I booked last minute and she was able to come to my apartment to pick up my dog. Kept me updated with pictures and status which was nice. My dog is a strong 80lb pit bull mix who is sometimes temperamental with other dogs so I was a little worried ...

Professional dog lover

I love dogs and playing with dogs! So I'd love to take care of yours. I’ve been a dog mom my whole life and am great with all breeds, ages, and sizes of dogs. I’ve owned golden retrievers, labradors, Pekingese, and chihuahuas, so I am especially familiar with those breeds. I’ve raised and trained young puppies, so I know exactly what to expect with young, energetic pups. My last dog, a 14 ...

What Holly would like to know about your dog

My goal is to provide your pup with a comfortable, relaxing, and fun stay. Please let me know anything you think is important about your dog. When does he/she typically eat? How much food during each meal? When does he/she usually wake up? How often does he/she usually go out? How does he/she normally sleep at home (crate, floor, bed)? Does he/she get along with other dogs? Get along with strangers? If he/she is not fully trained yet, what are they currently working on? Please let me know if there’s anything else you think I should know about your pup. I’ll do everything I can to accommodate to your pup’s needs and make their stay in my home comfortable.

When Holly watches your pet

As a former dog mom, I’m used to having a dog in my house. I’m happy to allow your dog on my couch or in my bed if that’s what he/she is used to at home too. I know that it can be very nervewracking for some dogs to leave their owners and home, so I try to do everything I can to make them feel at home here.

I like to wake up early, so I will provide your pup with an early morning stroll. Your pup can expect multiple walks throughout the day in my favorite spots - the Charles River Esplanade, Boston Public Garden, Boston Common, and Comm Ave Park. If your dog is young, energetic, and fit, I’m happy to take him/her on a run with me along the Charles. As a teacher with the summer off, I’m home all day and will take your pup out every 2-3 hours.

In between walks, your pup will be pampered with lots of love and affection in my home. While I am home for most of the day during the summer, I will make sure your dog gets lots of attention. I understand that when dogs miss their owners they need even more love and attention.

If I have to leave my apartment during the day, I will turn on my Puppy Cam to check in on your dog and make sure he/she is doing okay alone.

Additionally, I understand how hard it can be for a dog owner to have to leave their dog while they’re away. I will have my phone on me 24/7 while your dog stays with me and I will be happy to answer any questions you have. I will send daily updates and photos of your dog during their stay (unless you’d rather not be bothered).
