Sarah was really good with our two dogs. She has a calming presence that our shy dog really appreciated. She took good care of them while we were on our weekend trip and sent us lots of photos. The dogs seemed relaxed and happy when we returned home. We will definitely be booking her again for our next trip!

What can I say about Sarah except she is absolutely incredible.. I cant get enough of her, even though the price may be a bit steep, she is well worth it, she arrived at my home on time I got videos and pictures. I personally am shooting to be her favorite client.. Sarah is absolutely the best Love love love Sarah!!!

Awww thanks Marco!!! I miss my sweet Roxie Louise!!!!

Sarah was great! She had a tough job dealing with one of my hounds, who is blind, but she did it with the utmost loving care. She stayed at my home, which was a big help to us. She gave both of my dogs several walks daily and sent me many photo texts of them. I really appreciated her wonderful care she gave my dogs; I would hire her again in a minute. I'm pretty ...

Thanks ever so much Barbara! I miss the girls too! Please think of me again when you travel! Fondly, Sarah

Flat Rate: one dog or four!

I thought it's unfair to charge multiple dog owners more just because they have more fur babies! So I now charge a FLAT RATE for up to four dogs! (I myself have two dogs)

I ran my own dog sitting company for ten years when my daughter was younger. I have two dogs of my own: Pepper, a border collie corgi mix who is 7 and Skye, a poodle mix who is 5. Both are ...

What Sarah would like to know about your dog

I prefer to do meet and greets in the client’s home, and will usually bring a friend with me. I’ll approach the pup very gently and will not make direct eye contact until I can tell they are comfortable with me. If all parties agree that we are a good fit for each other, I’ll want to be filled in on all the specifics of your expectations for my stay, and of course, all of your dog’s needs.

When Sarah watches your pet

In the morning we’d get up and have breakfast. We’d also take a nice long walk upon arising where the dogs would go pee and poo. We'd go back home for a treat and we'd snuggle on the couch while I read for class. Then we'd take a break and have another walk! 50 smells a day and your dog will stay mentally and emotionally healthy and happy. We'd come back and play tug of war and perhaps check out a dog park later in the afternoon. If it's ok with mom and dad we'd snuggle and sleep the night away in bed.
In the DC area we have really AMAZING dog parks and places to walk. I especially enjoy the 5 mile loop near my house at Burke Lake Park. There are great smells and wildlife (to observe, only please) if you like other dogs we can meet them as well!
