Sophia took excellent care, as always, of Frosty for one week when we were away. For the first time in seven years of Frosty's life we were away on his birthday and Sophia was very understanding and celebrated Frosty's birthday with birthday hat and birthday treat. She even had other dogs she was caring for as birthday guests. She sent us pictures of the party and made our hearts warm. Frosty is always happy at ...

It was our first time to leave our Meeko with Sophia. She sent us pictures everyday. We were able to have a relaxing vacation knowing that our Meeko was in good hands. He looked so happy when we picked him up. We will surely have Sophia look after Meeko again on our next vacation.

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.
