My dog loves going to Sara's. I feel he is getting great care and having fun with Sara's kids and her dog.

Sara was receptive to our requests and our dog's and family's individual needs, including daily schedule variability. She communicated clearly, responded promptly to messages and sent updates (including photos). I would use Sara's services again and would highly recommend her to others.

Our dog loved having Sara come walk her in the middle of the day! It saved us all a lot of worry about having the dog home alone for a long period of time. We returned home to a happy puppy!

We'll wear your dog out!

My name is Sara Bailly and I live in a Craftsman house with a large yard in the North End of Tacoma.
I have a 3year old and 1year old who both love dogs. I am a stay at home mom so I have a pretty flexible schedule and lots of time to spend with your dog. However with two small kids running around I prefer dogs that are not food and toy possessive. I ...

What Sara would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how the dog is with other dogs, on a leash, if they are a fence jumper or digger, and if they have any behavioral problems. This isn't necassarily a big deal, just good to know before hand. I would also like to know if the dog has any fear/ aggression triggers like bicycles, vacumes, cats, food, toys, ect.
High energy dogs are my specialty. Clyde and I make a good team for wearing dogs out. Clyde is good with dogs of any size, but some small dogs might be overwhelmed by his energy.

When Sara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Two blocks from our house is the entrance to the Puget Creek Trail. This trail is a fun hike or run all the way down to the water on Ruston Way. It is nice and shady, and not too busy. If your dog is a water dog, there is beach access about a half-mile from where the trail meets Ruston Way. Depending on your dogs needs and energy level we can jog the trail, or just take a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood. I always bring plenty of water for our walks, and make sure to clean up any messes.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
This depends on what your dog is used to. Unfortunately our bed is not big enough for two people and two or more dogs. We have dog beds, and your dog is welcome to sleep in our bedroom, or downstairs. We also have room for a crate if your dog is crate trained.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home most of the day, most of the time. They will be getting a lot of attention, and as much exercise as they need.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am currently a full-time student and I will be at school from 7:30-4:00. I can come by for a quick walk in the morning before school. After school I will come over and spend more time with your pooch. We will go on another walk, and maybe play some ball when we get home. I can spend a couple of hours in the evening with them just hanging out and getting cuddles.

Extra house-sitting services
Yes, I can bring in the mail, water, pick up the poo, or any other tasks you would done while you are away.
