I knew from meeting Nancy prior to my vacation that my two dogs would receive wonderful attention during my absence. My dogs, Sophie and Darcie, immediately warmed to her during our first meeting and she was so patient with Sophie, age 13 and deaf, and even more so with Darcie,age 12, who insisted on being noticed and petted. Nancy was thorough with note taking to insure that all information was recorded. I felt so ...

Having never left our 4 year old Golden Retriever or our 7 month old puppy, we were a bit nervous about how the dogs would do. Nancy was just wonderful with both dogs. We got plenty of updates and pictures and were able to relax and enjoy some time off that was long overdue. Nancy's attention to detail and willingness to put the dogs happiness first was so reassuring. Nancy made everything so seamless and ...

If I could give more stars, I would! Nancy was so incredible with our puppy. She helped us create a visiting plan that fit our puppy's needs. She sent us the cutest photo updates, recognized any hazards in the area he was kept in (mostly toys he's worked hard on throughout the day), and kept us up-to-date on the overall well-being of our puppy. You can tell that she genuinely cares for your furry family ...

What Nancy would like to know about your dog

Some things I like to learn ahead of time:
Does your pet have any health issues that need to be tended to? For instance, dietary restrictions, medicine, or behavior triggers?
The name and address of your vet.
What commands does your pup respond to?
What are your house and human food rules for your pets?
Does your pup like to stick to a given schedule, like regular walks in the morning and evening?
What does your pup do well around? What does your pup try to avoid?
What’s the best way to spoil your pup?

When Nancy watches your pet

My dog Sophie, a senior Cocker Spaniel, would tell you I'm fun, I'm active, and that I love to walk and play and explore together! I have a very good tennis ball and frisbee throwing arm, and I never tire of being a world class cuddler morning, noon or night. I'm always on the lookout for what your dog enjoys the most, and I love finding creative ways to deliver it. No matter what we do, your pup will have fun!

What about walking in the rain? I really enjoy walking in a gentle rain, and I can handle a downpour, too. So, if you're looking for a rainy weather walker, I'd love to hear from you! From my years of living on the coast and being on boats in foul weather, I've got 2 sets of foul weather gear that keep me nice and dry. From my love of nature and hiking, I have 3 sets of waterproof hiking shoes and boots which are geared to any temperature. Along with pet first aid, I carry a lightweight medium sized doggie raincoat for my dog or yours in my waist pack. I carry plenty of towels in my car to dry dogs off before coming back inside your home. We don't go for walks in stormy or slippery conditions, but I'm happy to arrange visits for potty breaks outside and super snuggles inside. I'll follow your lead and instructions on the experience you'd like for me to provide your pup. Would you like to schedule a complimentary meet and greet to plan ahead for those wet weather days you'd like to stay high and dry, while your pup safely enjoys the release of some pent up energy? If so, please be in touch.
