We could tell when we got back that Nala was well taken care of. We highly recommend Saralyn and will use her a again.
Saralyn was great! I'm very grateful for the perfect care of my dog over the weekend. I very highly recommend her!
Saralyn does a great job with my small dog. He has been scared of children for a long time but Saralyn works closely with her daughter on "dog manners" and they get along so well -- now he is actually excited to see kids! He is always excited to see Saralyn, too, when I drop him off.

What Saralyn would like to know about your dog
Getting to know your pets is the most important way for me to do my best! Any details you can provide about your pet: medical needs, temperament, favorite treats/play, dietary needs, etc.
Health: Does you dog require special medical attention? Medications? Is there a condition I should be aware of? Is your pet recovering from surgery or other medical care and requires special activity restriction/physical therapy? Let me know so I can keep your pet healthy during their stay! Vaccinations strongly encouraged. Veterinary contact information is also helpful, should your pet need to visit the doctor for any reason.
Temperament: Is your dog shy at first? Hyper? How does your pet behave with other animals? Does your dog have certain behavioral triggers I should know about (car chasing, barking, easily startled, avoidance of people, etc.)? What is the best way to handle your pets anxiety, if any?
Behavior/Training/Handling: How is your dog trained? What commands does your dog understand? Hand signals? Verbal cues? How does your pet behave during walks? Is your pet off leash trained? Are there any behaviors you would like discouraged? Encouraged? Does your pet have a naughty habit I should be aware of (gets into the trash, litterbox, etc.) So I can better prepare for their stay?
Play/Reward: What is your dog's activity level? How does your pal play? What is their favorite game? Does your pet have a favorite toy? What is the best way for me to encourage positive behavior? Belly rubs, a favorite play toy, treats?
Feeding instructions: What kind of dietary restrictions, if any, does your pet have? Is your pet on special or prescription food? How much and how often is your dog fed? Does your pet have any special feeding instructions (must eat alone, eats best in the presence of people, no treats, allergies, etc) ?
Comfort: How can I make your pet the most comfortable? Is your pet allowed on the furniture? Does your pet have a habit that keeps them happy (nesting in blankets, warming feet, calm cuddles, laying in their pet bed)? Any special instructions to remain consistent with home and happiness?
Any other information to make your pet comfortable is greatly appreciated! I also strongly encourage you to bring their favorite toys, blankets, beds, etc. to help them feel at ease with me during their stay!
