Positive, Flexible, & Reliable ❤️

I am an Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Sociology, and College Prep classes at local colleges/universities and have a random schedule in which I am home most of the week. I live in a cozy beach house in Redington Shores with my husband and puppy, Sophie. She is a friendly, playful chihuahua pup who loves everyone she meets, including other dogs. My last dog was adopted from the ASPCA in 2009 and he passed in ...

What Sonya would like to know about your dog

To ensure the safety and comfort of all dogs: Please let me know:
If the dog has a violent history, bitting humans or other animals.
Allergies. Medical issues. Accidents in the house. Not spayed or neutered.
Likes, dislikes, triggers.
Dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations and flea & tick protection.
Dogs must be spayed or neutered.
Please let me know if they have any naughty behaviors like chewing or going potty in the house. These are OK, I would just like to know.
**New Dogs who need sitting for longer than 7 nights must do a trial night with me prior to the stay to ensure it is a good fit. I recommend a minimum of one week prior just in case the fit is not good and owners need to seek alternate arrangements. This is to ensure the safety and happiness of the dogs, owners, and sitters!**

When Sonya watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks:
I have a very low traffic residential neighborhood where I often run/walk with the dogs. As long as it's OK with owners, I sometimes take pups to dog-friendly parks too!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
With us in our bedroom on a dog bed. Smaller dogs may be in bed if requested. Some dogs prefer our living room couches, and that's ok if they don't have accidents in the house.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
I work part-time teaching so I am home most of the day. My husband is work-from-home. Max away time is less than 4 hours, if we need to run errands.
