Dogs Over 1 Year Old
I was much more comfortable on our trip knowing that Letty was spending lots of time with our pups. She took good care of them , and I was thrilled to discover when I got home that my house was exactly the way I had left it.
Letty arrived for a drop-in visit exactly when she said she would. We received a photo and a detailed update. We've already booked her again when we go on vacation.
Letty was wonderful! She took care of the house and our pets while we traveled. My cat is on medication and she took care of her and sent daily updates. With a huge rainstorm the week we were gone, she walked the dogs to make sure they got enough outdoor time and exercise. I appreciated the daily photos and updates-they were in good hands. I love that she stayed the whole time and their routine ...
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.
