Senior Dog Experience
Has 1 Dog
Hi! I am here to provide you peace of mind with your animal in a comfortable and loving place for you pet to stay while you are out of town. I always treat every dog as my own and include a rover.com approved tag as well as a glow light for night time takeouts to insure safety. I have over two years of experience training dogs and have been certified by Animal Behavior College, I would be willing to add training costs while you beloved pet stays with me. I have a large house with greyhounds that stay with me and a large outdoor pen and the house is completely puppy proof! Wanting to add balance to your dogs life? My greyhounds are great baby-sitters and have helped numerous dogs learn to behave and be calm in a household situation! My household also includes a wonderful Italian Greyhound (grandma of the house) and a very tolerant older Kitty named Salem! The gated system in my house keeps all dogs safe at all times and insures they have a great experience!
About this sitter:
I am certainly a huge animal lover. From the time I got my first horse to my first dog, I always wanted them to look their best and feel their best. Now I have the greyhounds and my love continues!
Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog lover my whole life. I have owned dogs since I was very young, and now I have turned my love into a profession by becoming a dog trainer. I love helping other owners learn more about their dogs and have a more enjoyable relationship with their dogs. There is nothing more rewarding than to see a dog owner who has given up become a proud and willing dog owner as their dog transforms! My dogs Evan, Toby (both greyhounds) and Sophia (miniature greyhound) are great pack members and very laid back and sleep most of the day and are always happy to welcome new pack members into the house! My cat Salem is also a great pack member who is very tolerant of dogs and has no front claws but he will correct a puppy if need be!
Meet my pets
I have two greyhounds, retired and sleep all day with a miniature greyhound as well as a very opinionated cat. They are the love of my life and are great role models for any dog that stays here!
My house is very spacious and the sunroom (our main living room now) has a specially designed gate that keeps dogs in that room and allows for them to be contained in a safe environment with freedom to move around. I also have a very large fenced in yard with plenty of trees for shade and room to run. I go for daily walks with my dogs and try to go to dog parks when I can, your preference of course. I have at my house as well two dog kennels if your dog needs kenneling one large kennel and a medium size kennel. The dogs kept here are always made to feel like a part of the family and made as comfortable as possible on their stay!
About my yard
I have a large backyard with some trees and it is very flat, really good for running and playing.
My experience administering medication
I am comfortable
I would like to know about medical issues, any behavioral issues and just an overall personality profile. I do not care about the breed, all are welcome.
Here's where we'll take our walks
I walk the dogs around the neighborhood but I also make frequent trips to Lake Johnson nearby where there is a 2 mile trail around it
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
It is your choice, your dog can sleep in its kennel, or I have a custom gate that keeps the dogs in the sunroom (we use it as our living room) where they will have access to many orthopedic dog beds.
Time I'll spend with your dog
Each dog will be with me and my pack, time may very but they will get plenty of attention and play time.
