We were gone for 10 days and our anxious 13 year old dog, Eleanor, seemed right at home with Sonja taking care of her. Eleanor is a rescue dog which has grown very attached to me and has had problems being left in others care when we were away. Ellie had no issues staying home with Sonja. Sonja understood that Ellie needed people to be around her to feel secure and she gave her that ...

Sonja was absolutely great with our dogs. She was patient with our little one who wasn’t feeling great that morning, and played ball with both of them. She sent us photos of them in the yard, and brought her laptop to work from which was completely fine with us. We are definitely using her again!

When Sonja watches your pet

I like getting outdoors with furry friends and exploring the different neighborhoods in the city-- and there are so many great parks in Seattle! I love long walks outside, and if your pup is into it and well-socialized we could hit up a nearby dog park. Time at home is relaxing and fun too. I'll give your dog some cuddles and a snack, and listen to some relaxing music while they take a snooze if they're tuckered.
