Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Laine took great care of our cat when we were out of town for a week. She sent pictures every day and let us know how much he was eating. He was very well-fed and happy when we got home.
Splenda Appreciates the love.

What Laine would like to know about your dog
Good things to know about a pet before sitting him or her would be feeding instructions and if they are on any medications, how often they need their medication, etc. I also like to know your dog's general behaviors and any issues they may have, such as separation anxiety or destructive behaviors such as chewing furniture. If you have been training your dog or reward them for certain behaviors, I would like to keep up with your methods while you're away. Essentially, I like to know their detailed daily routine, so I can follow it as closely as possible. My goal is to have your pet so happy, they've forgotten you've left them with a sitter! This is also why I only do in-home overnight sitting; animals tend to do much better in their own homes while their owners are away.
