Sara and Andy are wonderful sitters. They watched our 6 year old standard poodle, Houdini, over Pioneer Day weekend, and took exceptional care of him. They sent me updates and adorable pictures of Houdini's throughout the weekend. They were super easy to coordinate with, and incredibly knowledgeable about dog care, asking lots of questions about our dog to make sure they gave him the best care possible. I am so glad to have found them ...

Sara and Andy were so great! They were easy to coordinate with, even though my request was last minute. They took great care of our dog Houdini, and put me at ease given it was my first time using Rover.

Hi! Welcome to our lovely home!

I live in a cute house with my husband and our two adorable dogs, a beagle mix and a chihuahua! We would all love some company and our dogs are very friendly and eager to meet new friends! We have a big back yard for the dogs to play in, and a very nice neighborhood in Sugarhouse for long walks! We love to go to Memory Grove to play with other dogs too! Our house ...

What Sara would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dog's temperment, if he or she is aggressive in nature. Lady was recently attacked by a pit bull whom was off leash (by no means do I have an assumption that ALL pit bulls are aggressive) so she is a little apprehensive around pit bulls. Edward loves all dogs, at any size! Also, I would like to know the commands your dog has been trained (i.e. sit, stay, off, etc) or hand gestures that I can use so that both your dog, and I, can communicate in the best way possible! Also, during our meet and greet, I like to go on a 5 minute walk around the block with your dog and ours so we can establish a good bond! That way, meeting on neutral ground will make everyone less territorial! Unfortunately, I am not taking puppies (less than one year old) because my beagle Lady is 9 and our Eddie is 7, so it's hard for them to keep up with puppies!

When Sara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Our walks will be around the neighborhood, up to Capitol Hill, so that your dog can have plenty of exercise if needed! If your dog needs a slower and shorter walk, we can certainly do that as well. Our average walk distance is 1-2 miles, and we usually walk about 15-30 minutes at a time.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dogs will sleep with us in our bedroom, (hopefully in their own bed)! If they prefer to stay a little warmer, we have a thermostat operated fireplace that he or she can cozy up next to!

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan on spending as much time as our new friend requires :) Can't get enough TLC!
