We would not trust anyone other than Sara to watch our two pups. She did an AMAZING job watching our dogs Rexie and Cody (and Rexie is a picky dog!). I would highly recommend her as a dog sitter especially to any picky dog owners out there! ❤️🐶😊

Sara is definitely a great person with full of love to take care of your furry friend. She is very friendly, professional and communicative, during the boarding she kept sending us the pictures and videos of Oreo that really made us feel good, we like Oreo to he taken care of by her again if needed. When we picked up Oreo, she even offers a small gift includes dog treats and a lovely card written ...

Thank you so much, Joe! I loved having Oreo over; playing with toys and so many cuddles! I can't wait ...

Sara was absolutely amazing! From our initial meet and greet to drop off/pick-up, she was very friendly, professional, and communicative. I always felt like our dog Zeus was in great hands, and she knew exactly what she was doing and sent us constant updates throughout the day on his wellbeing. She takes great pride in her work, and truly treats your loved one as her own, paying careful attention to any specific needs or requests ...

Zeus is the BEST ! He's quite hyper, but we had so much fun together going on long walks and ...

Energetic Pet Lover, Walker, Sitter

Hey everyone, and welcome to my updated Rover profile as of August 2019!

MY EXPERIENCE:
I've grown up around dogs my entire life; breeds ranging from the larger pups like Pitbulls, Rottweilers, Whippets, and Retrievers, to smaller breeds like Cocker Spaniels, Terriers and Doodles. I have a passion for working with dogs, and it warms my heart to know that I'm able to care for people's dogs so they feel comfortable going away. Nothing warms ...

What Sara would like to know about your dog

Boardings are considered a 24 rolling period; anything beyond that will result in a modified stay with an additional doggy day-care charge. Please inform me of the anticipated dropoff/pickup times. Thank you!
I hope this is understandable, but I require meet & greets prior to all services. Meet and greets are free of charge and held at whomever's house the dog will be staying (boarding services: my house; sitting/drop-ins/walks: your house).
Prior to or during these meet and greets, I ask clients to fill out a questionnaire that provides me with all the basic information I need to know prior to caring for your dog; I now provide these through Google Forms and can send them through Rover direct messages to obtain needed information about your pup, including food schedule, exercise schedule, permissions (go on rides, give treats, etc.), as well as emergency contact information. I now require these to be filled out by both new and returning clients, so please anticipate getting one of these forms in your inbox!

While I've loved my boarding dogs, my living situation has changed as well as my availability regarding my services. I have now switched my profile to returning clients only for boardings (If we've had a M&G, you are good!)
** I am still providing sitting, drop-in, and walking services to both returning and new clients ?

When Sara watches your pet

I love to go on walks! When there's extreme weather (you know how the bay area can be!) I try to substitute long walks for plenty of indoor play or a short walk/park visit with lots of water. I typically always have 2-3 water bowls throughout my house, including one outside should they sit out on the fenced patio with me!
I also love to take dogs out on errands with me, this way they're not alone for that period of time. I have purchased an adjustable seatbelt that I attach to the pup's provided harness/collar.
I have a lot of toys at my house, but I always love when dog owners bring their pups favorite toys. This may also help them comfort themselves should they have any anxiety being away from their owner and also help them feel more comfortable throughout their stay ?
