Our dog Odie is in love with Sarah. He literally cried (whined) when it was time for her to leave. Sarah was completely committed and in tune to caretaking our dog, an energetic and loving two year old GSP. She walked him the recommended 4 miles each day, arranged play dates for him, and on top if it all took excellent care of our home in our absence. She’s the ten star deal... grab ...

Sarah took care of our field spaniel, Maggie, many times over the last ten years both in our home and hers. Don't hesitate to hire her - she is dog-smart, conscientious and loved our Maggie like our own. Even when there were geriatric challenges Sarah handled our aging girl with patience and care. She kept us updated with email and photos while we were away, and left our home and lake cabin in perfect order. Bonus ...

Sarah is a professional pet care person! She has many years of experience and is beyond capable when looking after pets. She is caring and mature and adores animals and understands their ways and needs. She can follow instructions and we love to have her watch our Java and Pucky, (lab and husky shepherd).

Unflappable, reliable, PRESENT.

Unflappable, quiet writer has cared for pets on several continents. As a writer I spend most of my time IN or around your home, so your pet will not lack attention. I care for dogs large and small, puppy to geriatric. (I charge more for puppy care - if you have one you know why.) I've cared for cats from mellow to maniacal (once they sense they cannot unnerve me, they give in and accept. ) I ...

What Sarah would like to know about your dog

Walking and social behaviors, level of training, car behavior, leash manners and what sort of leash owner uses (I don't use or advocate zip leashes). Is your dog food-motivated? What is their toileting routine? I love most breeds, but have a soft spot for working and hunting breeds.

When Sarah watches your pet

I prefer repeat stays of three or more days in either urban or rural settings. Once your pet and I develop a relationship it makes your next leaving less stressful. I will happily work on basic training and whatever teachable tricks or tasks. I am a fit walker, so we will spend ample outdoor time, rain or shine. Frisbee, ball, fetch, dog park, swim, and, for dogs that require running, I own a Finnish push-bike, designed for 'summer mushing'. I will keep a log of our daily activity upon request. I do charge more for multiple animals, puppies and special care - details we can work out upon meeting.
