Rory is incredibly patient! My dog suffers from a ridiculous amount of anxiety, and has severe IBD to boot, and is allergic to everything. He's also scared of men.
It took a few weeks of consistent visits, but I've known Rory for years and my dog eventually warmed up to him. Now the are couch snuggles, treats, and his favorite activity of all, the DOG PARK. Rory is now one of his favorite people :)
No dog too small, no dog too large.
I am a stay-at-home dog parent. My own four-legged child has special dietary restrictions with a touch of separation anxiety so I understand that our fur babies can be very particular and each one has their own unique personality. I have experience with positive reinforcement training so I know well that our four-legged friends much prefer treats over being scolded.
I have checked in with my friend's dogs many times while they were out of ...
What Rory would like to know about your dog
Before I take care of your fur child, I need to know a few things:
Any dietary restrictions? Any preferred treat food?
What sort of training and/or commands do they know (crate trained, sit, stay, fetch, etc)?
Are they social dogs? Do they like being off-leash? Are they aggressive towards other dogs and/or any particular people (men, women, tall, short, etc)?
Are there any behaviors your dog absolutely can't stand? Should I be sure to never interrupt them when eating/drinking?
Are they okay with being held/picked up? Are there any particular spots where they do not like pets (are they head shy)?
Do they like to play rough or do they prefer to play with gentle pets or not play with humans at all?
