Was a first time rover user and Mac was a great ambassador for the service. My pup is fairly laid back but not big on company and Mac did a great job putting her at ease. Would not hesitate to use him again.

My kitties were happy and healthy when we returned home so I am happy. Mac did a great job giving the cats attention.

I am glad Mac took Roxy back again. I am sure my dog is pretty well taken care and had lots of fun. As before, we got awesome professional looking photos. I am sure he spent tons of time to get these pics perfect.. LOL. Roxy was returning home in great shape with all clean cup and crate. I am really happy to have Roxy with him for the last few days!!

Dog Loving Spokane Valley Sitters

Hi, we are a dog friendly household with one dog, three cats and many fish. Our dog, Roxy, is a small, mellow Terrier mixed with Pomeranian who we rescued about 3 years ago from a kill shelter in California. We are so happy to have her, especially because we rescued her on the day she was scheduled to die.

We are a pet loving couple who love dogs, and have had dogs all our lives ...

What Mac would like to know about your dog

With a few caveats we love all other sizes and temperaments, like dogs with lots of energy and ones that need a quiet environment and every one in between. We have cared for dogs with health problems that needed pills or shots. We can go to a nearby dog park if you wish or just walk your dog.

While the perfect dog for our pet sitting is wide open our only problems would be aggressive dogs, ones that destroy things when they are stressed, and ones that are incontinent unless they come with diapers (that we don't mind changing at all). We also would have to refuse extra large dogs

When Mac watches your pet

We love to interact with our doggy guests as much as they like. We know that some dogs come to us wanting walks and to playfully interact with us and others want to sleep and lie around most of the day. Since we are at home throughout the day we can let the dog lead us and be with them in whatever ways they want.

That said, we don't let dogs walk all over us. We are disciplined here and we might even teach your dog a new trick if we have him/her for long enough. We never use negative training with dogs, we only use positive reinforcement and we have found that most dogs respond very well to this form of discipline. It should be clear, we would never hit a dog or mistreat them in any way. Our style of training and direction is calm and ordered with enough of a regimen to have your pooch act with respect. We have found that dogs love this approach.

We have a large sports park a block away from us and beyond that a wonderful neighborhood that is wonderful to walk in. We let your dog and you tell us how long the walk needs to be. In between walks we take your dog outside in the back yard every 3-4 hours so they never have to wait for long to do their "business".
