Our 14 year old Jack Russell, Holly, had a wonderful time with Sara and the other boarding dogs. Holly was very well-cared for and Sara provided ongoing updates about her and shared plenty of candid photographs.

We recommend Sara to anyone looking for a caring, dependable and qualified sitter and will certainly reach out to her again the next time we need a care taker for Holly.

Thank you Sara for taking such great care ...

Dogs are My Life!

I love dogs! I have the best job in the world! In 2012, I left a senior management position in Corporate Land. After two months of decompressing, I started my own dog walking and boarding business. I walk dogs, play with dogs and snuggle with dogs all day and night. It's a pretty good gig. My former coworkers ask me if I miss my old life....that answer is one gigantic NO.

What Sara would like to know about your dog

I would like to know:

1) Are there any medical issues that I need to be concerned about?
2) Has your dog ever been separated from you in the past?
3) How does your dog behave around other dogs? Describe both on-leash and off-leash behavior.
4) How is your dog around people in general?
5) What is your dog's preferred level of daily activity?
6) Where does your dog normally sleep?
7) Do you allow or prefer your dog to go to off-leash parks?
8) If you had to choose your dog's biggest pleasure or motivator, would it be food, exercise (walks or fetch or ?), playing with other dogs, or human attention/affection. Or something else?

I have no breed preference whatsoever. All dogs unique, interesting and fun!

When Sara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Most mornings, I walk dogs around Green Lake, or a portion of it. If your dog does not appreciate dog crowds or Green Lake squirrels, then we walk around the Phinney Ridge neighborhood. Some days, we take field trips to Carkeek Park, Ravenna ravine area, Golden Gardens, or Magnuson.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep where he or she feels most comfortable. I allow many dogs to sleep on my bed if that is preferred. Many dogs choose their own dog bed on the floor in my bedroom. A few dogs want their own space and sleep in the living room. If your dog sleeps in a crate, then they can sleep in their crate. I think your dog should duplicate his or her regular sleeping habits as much as possible when staying in my home.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan to spend most of the day and all night with your dog. On week days, I walk regular dog walking clients for a few hours mid-day. I take overnight dogs on the daily dog walks if everyone gets along well.

Time I'll spend with your dog
About 75% of my day will be spent with your dog. Occasionally, I need to go the grocery store, or work out!

Extra house-sitting services
Yes. I am more than happy to take on minimal tasks around the house.
