Sophia is absolutely wonderful! She took care of Momo a second time and his reaction upon seeing her was tail wagging and excited as ever!
I greatly appreciate her prompt communication/responsiveness. Pictures are worth a thousand words and the ones she sends clearly show how happy, content, and comfortable Momo is with her! Thank you Sophia, for being so caring with him!

Sophia is great and gentle with dogs. My dog Teagan loves to go to her house. We are also at peace when Teagan is with Sophia.

Pawtel in Gaithersburg

I'm an animal lover and I grew up with dogs. I raised my two Shih Tzus Coco and Simsim since they were 2 months old, they are now 9 and 8 years old. My dogs are very friendly with other dogs, having other dogs come and stay in the house is like a play date for them.

I have a big house and a big back yard for the dogs to run around and play ...

What Sophia would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the dog's personality, daily routine, eating habits and behaviors and medical condition if there is any. I like to host small and middle size dogs, one is my dogs had a very bad experience with a big dog when she was a puppy, she's very nervous around big dogs ever since.

When Sophia watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a very dog friendly community, we have two little parks near by. I use the park where has a parking lot for meet and greet, the park has a little path and dog Waste Stations for the walk.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Guest dog can sleep anywhere she/he prefer at the house, sofa, chair, he/she own bed or the guest's bed I provide for my pup guest.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work at home and my husband works at home most of time, so there is always someone around the house during the weekdays, we will have to run some errands on weekend but it won't take long when we have pup guest at home.
