No Females in Heat
Lucila is kind and sweet. Our small dogs had a wonderful time with her. She sent pictures during the stay to show us what they were doing. I would definitely recommend Lucila and we will be using her again.
Lucila was great with our pup! She sent us pictures, videos, and updates every day. She was so sweet with him and even slept with him a couple nights until he got used to being in his crate at night. Our pup had lots of fun playing with her and her two dogs inside and outside, and he got to go with her in the car on some errands too. Her dogs were a little ...
Lucila has always been wonderful with my dogs! One of my dogs is a quirky little thing and is a bit picky with how he wants things. Lucila was great and adapting to that and helping him eat and get over his fears of different places. Another thing I love is that she often sends pictures and/or videos of how they are doing so I can be assured of how they are faring. I ...

In-home visits: I regularly cat and house-sit for my next door neighbor when she is out of town, and have been doing so for the last 6+ years we've lived here. When she is away, I visit her home at least once per day for 30 minutes or more to make sure food and water dishes are full, the litter box is cleaned, and I have a chance to play with and socialize with her ...
What Lucila would like to know about your dog
-Is the dog potty trained?
-What does the dog do to indicate it needs to go outside to go potty?
-Is the dog in spayed/neutered? (*Please note, I do not sit females in active heat)
-Does the dog have a special diet?
-Has the dog ever expressed aggression towards other dogs? (This isn't a deal breaker if they have necessarily, however, I'll want to take extra precautions to keep both my animals and yours safe)
-What are their bad habits that I should look out for and correct while they are in my care?
-Are they particularly anxious or skittish? What scares them (so I can either avoid those those things, or introduce them slowly)?
-Does the dog experience separation anxiety? If so, what can I do to help mitigate that issue?
-Do they know how to walk with a "loose-leash" or are they a puller?
I do not have any breed preferences and there are no breeds I'm against having in my home.
