Sophia took care of Momo wonderfully during his stay with her (~10 days); she sent a lot of pictures daily which made our separation from him (first time for us) a bit easier and was very responsive to any questions we had!

Thank you so much 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.
