Marcy was amazing! She came through for us at the last minute after our initial sitter didn't work out and we were already out of town. We got updates throughout the weekend on how our dog was doing which made us feel very comfortable despite the fact that we hadn't even met Marcy. She gave our dog lots of attention and made sure she was well cared for. We came home to a very happy ...

What Marcy would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences, but I do ask a lot of background questions. First I want to know how long you have had the dog, where it came from, any history of abuse or aggression. Then I ask about how often the dog is socialized, walked or goes to the doggy park. I also ask about medications, allergies and feeding schedules, including snacks or treats.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience

When Marcy watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live at the very end of the museum district on the edge of the near west-end. There are a lot of very quiet neighborhoods near me. I also take dogs to this fenced in soccer/baseball field nearby. All my neighbors take their dogs their as well. I can take them off the leash and play ball, frisbee, or just run around. This area is two to three times the size of the dog parks around here and a lot less crowded.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
I have blankets and dog beds in a room directly next to my bedroom. I shut the doors to the halls and my bedroom and the dog room connect. Also there is a little porch connected off that room. If it is nice outside I open the porch for the dogs to go in and out.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Well that depends on the day and how much your dog is going to be napping after playing with mine:) I am usually not gone for more than five to six hours total throughout the day. I go to school on-line, so I am home a lot. My dogs are my best friends, so I am always playing with them. Especially if there is a new dog in the house. There are three stories to my house, with a doggie-door and my fence is a large privacy fence all the way around. So I like to play with your dog in order to show him/her the whole area and where toys might be stashed.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I generally spend 1-1.5 hrs per visit and make at least three visits.

Extra house-sitting services
Yes, I am. I bring in mail, newspaper, packages, etc. I will water plants and turn on and off the lights, therefor it will not look like you are on vacation.
