Has 1 Dog, No Other Pets
Reduce your worries while you’re away. Your dog will enjoy a fun and relaxing vacation and you’ll get photo updates.
I am a marketing professional in the pet industry living with my boyfriend, Mike. We have two dogs, Brando a mutt, and Squish, a french bulldog. We only take in one dog at a time so that your dog gets the one-on-one attention they deserve.
Both Mike and I work very close to home. I work only one block away. If you book during a week day the dogs will spend no more than 6 hours home alone. On weekends we try to plan things that include the dogs, including hikes and long walks.
Located in SOMA, your dog will make our home their home while you are away. We have a 1000+ sq ft apartment with two balconies and access to a Porch Potty. Our apartment community has a private dog park and plenty of courtyard space for walks. Feel good knowing you've left your best friend with a fun and caring family. We have a smoke free home.
I will keep in communication with you while you are away to let you know how your pooch is enjoying his/her stay. I send at least one picture update a day because I know it can be tough to leave your best friend behind.
Feel free to message me and ask me questions. We can even schedule a meet and greet at a nearby dog park to get acquainted. I am flexible with pick up and drop off times and want to make your dog's transition easy and your trip planning (at least when it comes to dog sitting) effortless.

Why I love dog sitting
I'm still trying to understand people who don't love dogs. I didn't have dogs when a was younger but as soon as I was able to have one of my own I took in an elderly Husky. I've since had a Boxer, a Great Dane, and now live with a French Bulldog and a mutt.
About my yard
We have a private balcony with dog door to a Porch Potty.
My experience administering medication
Pills in peanut butter is fun for all!
Is your dog good with other dogs, both big and small? What is your dog's normal schedule (peeing, pooping, eating and sleeping)? Does your dog know basic commands like sit/stay? Does she/he come when called? Does your dog need to be crated if we leave the house? Where is he/she used to sleeping? Is your dog good in the car? Are they up-to-date on vaccinations? Allergies?
Here's where we'll take our walks
During the week your dog will get a walking tour of SOMA. On the weekends we will partner those walks with a trip to a nearby dog park, if they are good at dog parks, of course.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog can sleep wherever he feels most comfortable. That can be in a dog bed (we have many), on the couch or even in our bed!
Time I'll spend with your dog
I work at a dog-friendly office and if they are good with other dogs they can come with me. I will play with your dog until they are too tired to play anymore. Then they can snuggle with me and my pups!
