Sara did a fantastic job dog sitting my 8 borzoi and watching my house while I was away on vacation. She kept me updated daily on how everyone was doing and asked questions if needed.

Sara is a nice person and my animals were fine we I got back but I was disappointed in her communication while I was gone. I have a very scared dog and asked her to keep in touch. At first she did and then I had to keep texting her to ask how it was going. Also she let me dog out before she left but couldn't get him back in and had to leave ...

When Sara watches your pet

Having studied animal behavior in college, I know how important good positive interactions and physical exercise can be to animal while an owner is away. I am an active person looking to exercise with and/or give exceptional care to your companion.
In addition, I have a spacious privacy fenced backyard that allows your dog the luxury of off leash romps throughout their stay.

*IN YOUR HOME*
If you should decide your dog is more comfortable staying in his or her own home, I enjoy sitting dogs of all sizes, breeds, and personalities.
I am also available for an other addition house-sitting services such as cleaning, organizing, and additional pet care.
