Sarah was very thoughtful in making sure she knew what to do with Piper. They had a great time together and I will be hiring Sarah to visit Piper more in the future!

Sarah was great with Tipper! She tuned into his personality and enjoyed him just like we do. And the pics! She sent us lots of wonderful pictures of Tipper in different settings. So fun seeing him enjoy his time with Sarah.

Individual care for special needs

Amateur animal behaviorist, avid dog-lover. Trainer in training, and SF SPCA volunteer.

I have a special place in my heart for dogs with special needs--whether they are incredibly intelligent and energetic and need lots of stimulation, have had a rough past and need extra patience and TLC, or require medications to manage chronic health conditions--I tailor each visit to the individual animal.

I work from home, have a flexible schedule, own reliable transportation, and I ...

What Sarah would like to know about your dog

*What unique care information does a sitter need to know about your pet?
*Feeding instructions / allergies / special dietary needs (What treats are ok?)
*Bathroom routine (How often, appropriate locations)
*Exercise schedule (Usual # of walks / minutes walking per day, other activities)
*Training / behavioral expectations (Special instructions? Particular commands?)
*Any health issues, behavioral issues, triggers, or other pertinent information to allow me to provide the best care possible!

All of my stays are geared towards the unique needs of each individual animal. No two dogs or cats are exactly alike! When booking, please let me know what your pet needs most, and how you would like us to structure our visits.

30 minute Drop-ins:
-For high-energy dogs, we'll spend most of our time walking or playing to get plenty of exercise. An added fee can increase our visit time to 45 or 60 minutes and extend the fun.
-For older or disabled dogs, we can mix some appropriate exercise with lots of cuddles, as well as medication or special meals if needed.
-For puppies, young dogs, or recent rescues, we can work on reinforcing new commands or routines, and we'll make sure that house training is kept on track.
-For AM or PM visits, we can always add breakfast or dinner! Happy to provide a mid-day lunch as well.
