Jessica was great with our little fur babies. She’s very experienced with Doxies and our pups were right at home with her.

Jessica was great with Coffee and Libby, she understands the breed very well, she was very patient and you can tell she loves them. I would definitely leave my dogs with Jessica again, I like that she sent pictures of them and kept me posted on how they were doing.

Thank you for the kind review Maria. I would gladly watch Coffee and Libby again.

Jessica was absolutely fantastic with Bleu & Brie. I felt 100% confident the entire time I was away that the dogs were well taken care of. Since she's an avid dachshund blogger and all-around dachshund expert I had peace of mind that she knew how to take care of my guys and ensure their comfort and more importantly their safety. I would highly recommend her for watching your dogs.

Dachshund Lover and Expert!

My name is Jessica and I have over 15 years experience with Dachshunds, including those with IVDD (back issues) and other health issues. Besides owning two of my own, I run a Dachshund club in Seattle (Adventureweiner Club), have been researching and blogging about them for over 7 years (YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner), and am a Dachshund walker and sitter (obviously... I'm on Rover :) ). I guess you could say I'm nutty about Dachshunds.

What Jessica would like to know about your dog

Yes, I only sit Dachshunds in my house. If you own another small breed they may be considered on a case-by-case basis. All dogs must be screened first for temperament and compatibility with my Dachshunds, Chester and Gretel (We'll do a meet and greet at my home before I agree to the stay).

When Jessica watches your pet

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your pooch will sleep like they do at your house if possible (sorry, you cannot bring your couch over. Ha, ha). If your dog sleeps in a crate or on a dog bed, please bring those over. If your dog normally sleeps in your bed they will be able to also sleep in our bed too (ours do).

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home and, in most cases, am not gone from the house for more than 4 hours at a time. I lead an adventurous life with my Dachshunds so, if my time and schedule allows, sometimes I will take your pup(s) to the park, camping, or on a road trip.
