Oscar did a wonderful job watching our golden puppy for two days and one night. Mutilple picture updates over the course of the stay and our puppy was in great spirits when we picked him up! Would definitely pair with Oscar again in the future!

Excellent in every way. Mr.MacGregor had a great 8-day stay at Oscar & Karolien's super-dog-friendly house, and he came home well and happy. They are wonderful, completely responsible, loving, bright people who really understand dogs, and our dog loved them. This was our first time leaving MacGregor like this, so when we met them and realized we're in safe hands, we felt "Whew." It was also nice to get the texts and pictures ...

Who wants to keep me company?

I am a 64 year old government retiree (now self-employed translator - teleworking) and live with my family (wife and 14 year old son) in a 3bed/2bath house (fenced garden). We have 2 female Chihuahuas (Hailey & Cody) who get along other dogs.
If your pet is small enough, it can sit on my lap while I work on the computer. Bigger ones only get to rest their head on my lap. Other than that ...

What Oscar would like to know about your dog

Prior to accepting an assignment, I'd like to know:

- the breed of the dog (just to know as I have no preference -- each breed/dog has his/her own characteristics and personality);
- any health issues and need for medication;
- any good/bad habits; things to look out for. Whether the dog is social with other dogs, cats, humans.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Can provide daily exercise

When Oscar watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
This depends a little bit on the dog. How far he/she likes to walk. Mandatory walks are the first one in the morning (between 6 and 7 am) and one before scheduled meals. The morning walk is usually done in the neighborhood (Woods of SouthRidge - Delray Beach) while others are done on A1A (along the beach) and parcs that are open to dogs (i.e. Boca Raton). Note that in the hot summer months, walks are restricted to early morning and late evening (before sundown). During the day, the dogs are let out in the backyard when needed or upon request (this is what my dogs do) for limited periods of times before returning to the A/C inside.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
In the house. I have pillows, small baskets, blankets, and a medium size crate in the living room (note that the crate remains open at all times -- my Chihuahuas have been trained to spontaneously go into the crate when the family members sit at the table to eat). Also, the crate is where the Chihuahuas retire at night or during the day when they want to be in a peaceful environment. The crate is too large for the Chihuahuas and can accommodate a medium size dog. Personal baskets/pillows/blankets can of course be brought as well.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Since I am on my own at home and working from home, I estimate that your dog and I would be spending a good average of 22 hours per day together. I do run errands occasionally but this is usually in the neighborhood and does not take me away from home more that one hour at a time.
