Our dog had a fabulous stay with Mahayla! Since it was our first time, Mahayla offered to come to our home to get to know our pup before caring for her the next day. They hit it off immediately and Mahayla explained her background in animal/dog behavior studies and reassured us that all would go well... and it did! Our pup had a blast trail hiking and also just relaxing at Mahayla's home. Mahayla ...

Mahayla has been wonderful with my two energetic dogs who are transitioning to a new home and a new schedule. One of my dogs is quite anxious and Mahayla has calmed her down and taken the dogs on long walks through fields and woods. She is experienced and very much can guide their behavior.

Mahayla did a fantastic job taking care of Zadie for nearly a week. She provided excellent, loving, and competent care including long walks in the woods. She really knows and understands dogs, their personalities, and their needs. If you are looking for care of your dog, look no further. She is a gem. We can’t recommend her more.

5. History while you've owned the dog (behavioral)
6. Behavioral specifications/concerns regarding this dog (i.e. good or wary with people/other dogs, confident or uncertain in new situations/areas, territorial considerations, any resource guarding or other guarding tendencies, etc.)

When Mahayla watches your pet

Trail running to their heart's content, on- or off-leash. Frequent walks in a variety of places if they aren't able to run, depending on their comfort level. Every aspect of daily life is better with dogs, so they would come with me on errands and most other human activities (unless they are uncomfortable with a situation, or otherwise express a preference to stay home - of course, if a dog is phobic of something, I will not place them in a situation with that thing).

I love to train, and if requested, would be happy to work on obedience with your pup on our outings! As mentioned before, I exclusively use positive reinforcement training methods, which makes training just another fun activity to the dog!
