Madeline took amazing care of my 2 goldens for a weekend... they liked her from the right beggining and were with a really great spirit when I came back!
Besides this very important factor, she also were sending updates as desired, very calm and proactive to make the experience as best as possible.
Maddie did a great job house /pet sitting with our three dogs for an extended vacation. Especially a new rescue who is very timid. The house was clean when we returned as well.
Madeline did a pretty good job - but she caused distrust right away because my home camera showed me that she was wandering around the house in areas she didn't need to be. She also 'slept through her alarm' the 2nd (of 7) days and the dogs potties on the floor. Her 'early morning visits' were usually 9;45ish - which was too long for the dogs to wait. Overall she did 'fine' but the initial concerns ...
I've always had at least one dog at home, and my family fostered puppies for two years, as young as two weeks old through Mostly Mutts dog rescue. I've gone through extensive behavior training with my German Shepard mix, so I know how to handle bigger dogs and dogs who are anxious. I volunteer at the humane society when I am at school in Nashville, and I have been a dog-sitter for friends and neighbors.
