Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Sophie is an experienced dog sitter who I have trusted with my large lab many times. He's big and excitable with other animals but Sophie really knows how to handle him. My dog also has partial paralysis of his larynx and requires medication and special handling when walked and Sophie is always on top of taking care of him to make sure he is comfortable and happy.
Sophie is sweet as pie and my dog loves her more than me! She is so thorough and sensitive to my dogs needs emotionally and aesthetically. I wouldn't trust my girl with anyone else <3
Sophie is excellent and attentive. Whenever I leave my dog with her I never have to worry, I know she's in good hands with Sophie. I wouldn't trust anyone else to watch my dog.
Loving, Pet-obsessed Care for You!
My earliest memory: Crawling after our Lab and German Shepherd, panting and copying them because I wanted to be a dog. My life as a pet-obsessed nerd has culminated in my current job as a dog bather in a grooming salon. Growing up with llamas and horses, years of watching Animal Planet, reading about careers with animals, and wishing I could be magically transformed into a dog have all led me to this moment.

What Sophie would like to know about your dog
The first thing I'll want to know about any pet I'm watching: what do they truly dislike? For example, my dog is sweet, loves to cuddle, and loves people and other dogs. However, if you take her on a walk, you gotta be careful for skateboarders since she hates them with a burning passion! I want to know what makes your dog happy, scared, or otherwise causes her to react strongly. From there, we’ll plan our meet-and-greet and lay the groundwork for a successful stay.
I’m happy to work with all breeds. I’m especially familiar with the general behavior and temperament of terriers, so I’m always thrilled to have them in my care. I'll ask about places your pup likes or doesn't like; whether they’re very energetic during walks, or calmer; and what kind of schedule and hours your family follows. If your pup gets anxious with other dogs, I'd think of a quiet, less used part of my area to walk. Or, if they’re super outgoing, we’ll hit the dog parks! All the insight you can give me will help us maximize our fun and minimize our stress.
