No Females in Heat
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
I was very upset and stressed the day Julia came to watch my pup. First off, in the morning she showed up late and by the time she’d gotten there, my pup had peed in his crate for the very first time. Then, I had told her since she was coming so early she could take a nap in my guest room after she had played with and walked my puppy and worn him ...
Julia was great with walking our dogs and providing updates while we were.away.
Julia was the perfect sitter to drop in on our two dogs. She met the dogs in advance and they felt very comfortable with her. She braved some poor road conditions and an icy driveway to care for our pets when we needed someone the most. Julia has GREAT communication and I would definitely book her again.
Dogs of any size make my heart melt
As someone who works from home, I would be an ideal sitter for your dog. Flexible on times, I can visit your dog at home when you need, stay with them overnight, or welcome them into my home. It's up to you!
More importantly, I love dogs and haven't met a single dog yet who didn't love me back! I've owned several dogs over the years, so I'm experienced with caring for them. This includes ...
What Julia would like to know about your dog
Before sitting a dog, I would like to know a few things: Have they been away from home or apart from you before? For how long? Have they displayed any signs of separation anxiety (excessive whining, urinating in the house, etc.)? If they're staying with me, I need to know two things in particular:
- Do they have any issues with men or cats? My husband Joe works closely with me, and we have two cats.
- How well do they adapt to being in a crate? Depending on the dog, I may have to crate them to get any sleep. I've kept dogs that can sleep in the bed with me, but as the owner, you already know whether your dog can do that or not!
If your dog is a larger breed (like a Great Dane) and you're hiring me to walk them, I need to know how well they do on a leash. I'm a small person, so if a huge dog decides to jerk me off my feet, it will probably happen.
