This is the second time Sara has watched our pup and she is fantastic! She sends plenty of pictures and updates. Takes the pups on long walks that they love. They get plenty of treats and love when they are there. They dogs remembered her from the first time she watched them for a weekend and they were excited to go back!

Four Years of Rover Sitting!

We are an active couple who would love to care for your dogs when you are away. We are looking to establish a few regulars where we are familiar with the dogs and in return they feel comfortable and owners are confident in our care. We enjoy vacations ourselves and understand that peace-of-mind comes when you know your babies are cared for and thus enhancing your ability to enjoy your vacation.

On weekdays, drop off ...

What Sara would like to know about your dog

All breeds have special traits. However, we cannot accept un-neutered male dogs. We understand neutering is your preference. However, we watch many dogs in our house over time and cannot have 'marking'.

I would like to know if your dog chews, has incontinence, medical issues, jumps, does NOT like other dogs, or bites. These are not insurmountable traits, but you must inform us. We will do our best to adjust to ensure your dogs' stay with us is enjoyable for them and us.

Bring your crate. We may not use it, but the crate gives them comfort. We do not use the crate as punishment, but reward crate usage with a treat or peanut butter. If you dog chews, bring plenty of their toys. We will truly work with most traits, please be honest and open in discussing traits with us and suggesting ways to work around them.

We do our best to have one dog or sibling pair (from the same family) at a time. However, sometimes this is not possible due to the owners travel delay, overlap in drop off/pick up time, emergencies, etc. When you book with us, we cannot guarantee your dog will be the only one - but we will sincerely try.

When Sara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We live in a quiet neighborhood with sidewalks, street lights, parks, and a few good hills. It is not a problem if your dog is not social, as we usually walk for exercise.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep in our room, on their dog bed, on the rug, or in their crate. Regardless of where they sleep, we do like that you bring their dog bed and crate to our house. It is possible your dog may never use or need either, however these items may provide your dog with familiar comfort and smells while you are away. More of their stuff is better than too little.

We want to ensure we continue your training habits, please inform us of what those habits are. Such as, if you do not want your dog jumping, on the sofa, begging, etc. It is important to us that your dog return to you happy, but also on his/her best behavior.

Time I'll spend with your dog
There is someone at the house almost all day. My husband and I both work, but we do the majority of the dog care and walking. Samantha watches our lil man during the day - she takes our lil man and the dog/s out for a walk around noon - weather permitting. That totals four walks - long and short - once in the morning, mid-day, after work, and before bedtime.

We do not just let dogs into the backyard -- we like to engage them on walks. This all assumes weather permits or that your dog wants/needs the exercise. On weekends, we like to be outside. We will generally run errands on the weekends, but are never gone for more than a couple hours.

All the above assumes your dog needs lots of exercise - we do care for senior dogs. We follow their needs with shorter or slower walks.
