Irena did 2 visits a day for my cats while I was out of town. They loved her from the minute she came over to meet us a week before my travels. She sent about half a dozen photos from each visit, which I appreciated. She was very loving with my cats, and they loved her too. She couldn't always arrive at the same time, and I don't know if any other sitter I have ...
Irena did an amazing dog watching our dog for the long weekend. She regularly posted photos/updates for us, and took great care of him.
Irena was great. She took wonderful care of our girl. Lots of love and walks and pictures of their time. It was great to know she is being well taken of while we are away.

What Irena would like to know about your dog
My biggest objective is that both the owner, the pet and sitter all feel comfortable. I've been in the pet servicing industry for a little over 5 years now. . I always like to contact the client, reassure them of the process answer any questions or concerns the owners may have. Set up a meet and greet with the pets owner and their pet. Instead of just asking a blanket "is your dog good with other dogs?" I get better results asking more specific questions, like "what is your dog's favorite/least favorite way to play?" and "what kind of behaviors does your dog find annoying from other dogs?" People are less willing to say anything negative about their dog's habits, but they'll be happy to point out what other dogs do that is less than ideal, and if the dogs you're going to house can't all meet beforehand, this will give you a better idea which ones will enjoy each other's company. I do introductions very slowly with high supervision and direction, encouraging them to play nicely, and it usually works out great.
