Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Lucy was very knowledgeable about dogs and cats (she trains her cat!). Duck the cat was adorable and dog friendly. I felt very comfortable letting my Ruby stay with Lucy. Ruby felt home straight away. She was taken on long walks, and I received plenty of pictures. I would use Lucy again when I'm in Portland.
We could not be happier to have found Lucy! What a great experience. She made our 15 yrs old Scout immediately feel right at home! I really enjoyed the updates and photos of our little guy. It made our time away much more enjoyable knowing that Scout was in such caring, loving and knowledgeable hands. We will definitely use Lucy again.
We love Lucy!!! From the start, she demonstrated that she was knowledgable about dogs, and just generally comfortable to be around. She had our (sometimes anxious) German Shepherd for three nights, and sent us many pictures and updates of their fun adventures over the course of the weekend. We're confident that Heike had an absolute blast with her, and will happily engage Lucy in the future for dog-sitting and more!
