Going on vacation or a long weekend away, need a loving home for your pet to stay?
Then you are at the right place! We will love and spoil your pets! It is our #1 priority! Don't feel guilty about leaving them, give them a vacation of their own!
My name is Michelle Oberlander. My love for pets is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of pet sitting. I have been a dog walker/dog sitter and have been boarding dogs for 10+ years. I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your "kids". Your dogs will be apart of the family while your away! They will share "couch time" and be given plenty of pooch love while your away! Their are "no limits" here to what they can and can't do, only the limits you set for them! My goal is to give them a place they will love coming back too!
I grew up with a household of furry friends! Many people thought our family was some what crazy for having so many pets! I have to say looking back we were a mini ZOO:") But I couldn't imagine my life with out them!! They brought so much joy and happiness to my family's life. Seeing their little faces everyday just puts a smile on my face!
I am a stay at home mom/dog walker making for one busy momma! I am married with 5 kiddos ranging from 22 to 3yr old. Making for one very busy family. We have 2 dog named Tiffany and Remington. We also have 2 cats named Kikki and Howey who are also dog friendly. They bring so much joy and happiness to our lives!!
We live in Glendora north of the 210 fwy against the beautiful Foothills. We have a 4 bedroom house on a quite cul-sac. Our backyard is split into 2 levels. The lower level has a great grassy area where the dogs and run and play and the upper level is our pool and gabazo area! The pool area is gated and locked at all times unless we are up there to enjoy the pool!! The 2 gates leading into the backyard are gated and locked at all times. Both gates have screens on them to allow for the the littlest of dogs!
We can't wait to meet you and your pets :)
Why I love dog sitting
I have loved and cared for dogs since I was a little girl! I grew up with Irish Setters and lots of them!! Now I know what your thinking "crazy" right?? Yes, there was a time where we were crazy for having a litter of 12 "reds" and keeping 4!! One IRISH is enough for most people! We owned show dogs on paper but they preferred the couch instead:) I have always loved "reds" they can be high energy and a handful at times!! They are also very loving, loyal and divas that love the couch! When I got married we decided to take a leap and get a Golden Retriever-" TANNER" best dog ever!! I get choked up just talking about him:( we lost our Tan-Man over a year and a half ago and its been a huge void in our family!! We miss him terribly!!
We recently added a new member to our family. Remington- 11 month old Golden Retriever, he is amazing! He's filling the void that was missing and brings so much happiness to our family!
Meet my pets
No other pets, just the 4 legged furry ones!!
About my yard
We have a split level yard, lower yard is the play ground and grassy area.. The upper yard is the pool area which is fenced and gated. If your pooch loves to swim we have a pool for them:) supervised of course!! All gates leading to the back yard are locked and key entry only.
My experience administering medication
Yes! Oral medication is given with a yummy pill pocket. "Staying away from home must be a vacation!" Taking meds from a stranger in a strange place is no different! We make taking meds yummy! Injections are also given with your instruction.
I would love as much detail as possible regarding your pets to insure they have the best time possible!
I would like to know their likes, dislikes and temperament ?
Do they show any signs of aggression?
Do they like children?
Have they been exposed to cats before? What's their reaction?
Do they do well with noise and commotion?
What's their daily routine and feeding routine?
Do they like to go on walks?
Are they housebroken?
What are they like outside of the house?
Do they BOLT for the front door?
How are they on leash and off?
and anything else you think would be important to know.
Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in Glendora near the foothills which is a quite community! Traffic is minimal and neighborhoods are quite. Our house sits at the end of a cul-sac. We also live right up the street from a school where we go to run and get our gallop on... That's Tiffany and Remington's favorite thing to do!
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
There are no limits!! Your pooch may sleep where ever he/she pleases! Couches and beds are free game if they want too! I also have a huge crate I can pull out if they prefer their own den!
Time I'll spend with your dog
I am a stay at home mom so I will be home 90% of the time! There may be times I have to run out for errands or pick kids up from school or activities, but its usually not for very long! While their staying with me they will be apart of our daily routine. Just like my dogs they are spoiled and spend most of their day inside lounging.
