Nick was easy going, responsive, and sent us pictures during our dog's stay in his nice house. I'd use his service again!
Nick was great! Our first time with Rover and he made us feel very comfortable. He had a meet and greet with us and then made sure Rosie got along with another dog who was staying with him. We got daily updates on Rosie, most with pictures, and Rosie seemed her usually happy self when we picked her up.
We had a great experience with Nick & I'd definitely use him again! He is very responsive and accommodating. During the week our dog stayed at his place, he texted updates and photos to let us know all was going well.
Experienced sitter near many parks!
I have a strong instinct for reading dogs’ body language and emotions. When I first meet them, I can typically read and understand their temperament and get a sense for any anxieties they may have. Then, I quickly adjust the situation or conduct activities to make them more comfortable. My intuition has always served me well when it comes to dogs, but I’m also quite analytical and organized.
I grew up with dogs constantly ...
What Nick would like to know about your dog
Before dog sitting, I find it is helpful to have a sense of the following:
-What is your dogs temperment with other dogs? Do they socialize frequently?
-Does your dog have a history of separation anxiety/ anxiety when in new places?
-How vocal is your dog?
-General overview of their feeding/potty/exercise schedule
-Does your dog have any comfort toys or preferred activities?
-What is their sleep schedule/ regimen (crated, doggie bed, etc)?
-Can your dog be left alone? If so, for how long?
I am open to all breeds, but I do have a preference for Labs and Lab mixes, because that is the breed with which I have the most direct care experience
