Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Kaitlyn was wonderfully attentive and generous to both of my two dogs, Chili and Otis! She really went above and beyond in keeping them happy, exercised, and cared for. My wife and I were so happy to see our boys having such a great time in the pictures and updates Kaitlyn provided, and her updates made our time away from the dogs a little more bearable. She knows her stuff and did an amazing job ...
KaitlynIs amazin! My wife and I had to go out of town for work and we were going to be across the country. We needed someone to housesit and take care of our dog, who is basically our child. I would never think of hiring anyone else besides her now. Not only did she do a wonderful job with our dog, but she kept us up-to-date with videos and pictures of him. Believe me, you ...
Kaitlyn was AMAZING!!! I almost had to tell her to stop sending me pictures, because I just missed my dog sooooo much. But Kaitlyn put me at ease with her knowledge and professionalism and also for her kind nature. Will definitely re-book!!!
PhD student will care for dogs!
Hi! I'm a PhD student at the University of North Texas studying for my qualitative exams in English Literature. I have a dog of my own, Gary, a 16lb 9-year-old who loves to make other canine friends! I'm available most days all day and can watch your dogs in my home, check on them in your home, and take them for walks and potty breaks. I'm happy to entertain them with walks, cuddles, playtime with ...
What Kaitlyn would like to know about your dog
I need to know if the dog is comfortable around other dogs. I will accept them either way, as long as they are not overly aggressive! If your dog has separation anxiety, let me know so I can be extra gentle and attentive. I also like to know their favorite things to do, how much they regularly walk, how often they usually go to the bathroom--that kind of thing. I definitely need to know if they have allergies!
I am totally comfortable with all breeds, but note that I won't be able to run, so let me know if your muscular dogs are allowed to go to the dog park to really get their energy out! I also absolutely ADORE corgis, squee over wrinkly pups, and I'm crazy for pitties! I hope to spend time with your dogs soon!
Due to my dog, Gary's, preferences, I will no longer be boarding puppies under 1 year and I will only be accepting dogs under 4 based on Gary's comfort during the meet and greet. Dogs OLDER than 4 years are always welcome!
Also, please know that my apartment is UPSTAIRS! I'm happy to carry up dogs 20lb or smaller, but larger dogs need to be able to climb stairs on their own. It's okay if they're slow! We will wait!! Also, note that the stairs are backless and sometimes this freaks dogs out. I love all doggies (and cats, too), but don't want to stress them out with my scary stairs, so if your larger dog doesn't like backless stairs, we're not the right fit for daycare or boarding. Other dogs don't care or even love it. Gary likes being able to watch his friends (or the toads he begs me to let him hunt) through the stairs. Every dog is different!
