Bubba's 3rd problem-free visit with Paula. She does a great job of helping him socialize with the other dogs
and treats him as one of her own.

What Paula would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences. I love them all, great and small. I do need to be sure that the dog is "dog friendly" before accepting the pet as a guests, as there are other dogs here.
I would also need to know of any special needs they might have.
It would be nice to know things such as: if they are afraid of storms, fireworks, noises, etc. Would they be more comfortable in a crate at night or loose in the house? Do they give you a signal when they need to go potty?
Do they like to play with other dogs or do they need their own space? These are the kind of questions I would ask the pet's owner.
