Dogs Over 1 Year Old
Letty was absolutely wonderful at taking care of our two dogs. She met them before house-sitting for us and took great notes of all the dogs needed before we left. She kept us very informed of how they were doing while we were gone as well. We will definitely be requesting care from Letty again soon!
Letty did a great job of dropping in to care for my cat while we were out of town. She came beforehand to meet him, wrote down notes and asked questions. During the visit she sent thorough updates and photos. I felt very comfortable leaving my cat in her care!
Letty is our favorite and we'll continue to use her any chance we get!
25+ years of taking care of animals
I love animals, especially dogs! So much so, this side "gig" is basically money I hand over to my 5 dogs for: vet care, high quality food, new beds, toys - all the luxuries in life they are used to. I have been pet sitting for over 25 years, I began in high school taking care of neighbors and family friend's pets. You can say I do it permanently now, I also foster for Diamond Dachshund ...
What Letty would like to know about your dog
I would like to understand the history of the dog: how long have you had them, where did you get them from? What is the dog's "routine"?
I like to evaluate the personality of the dog, every dog is different and I like to learn what they like and don't like, where will I have some difficulty in their care. For example, if they are not good with taking medication and they require daily medication I would like to try different methods to see what works best. Are they TV watchers? I have had some that are and they react (positively) to Animal Planet so have had to leave the TV on while they are alone so they stay stimulated and happy.
