This is the 2nd time we’ve used Stephanie to watch our little guy, Timmy, and he had a fantastic time! Stephanie kept us up to date daily with photos and summaries, and gave us a sure peace of mind while we were away for a couple of days. She is wonderful - really takes the time to understand your dog, and pays attention to all the details. We will only keep coming back!
I am so thankful we found Stephanie on Rover. We were gone for most of the day yesterday and our pups needed more than just a walk. Stephanie came to pick them up from our house and took them on an adventure. She also took them back to her home to get the lay of the land (as they’ll be staying with her next week for 10 days) She brought them home happy and ...
If more stars were available, is give her the max!! Communication was awesome, she has an unparalleled love and knowledge of animals. This is exemplified by her frequent communications and updates!! Some even included photos of my fur babies enjoying walks and rest time. She was reliable and pleasant about all the interactions. I would definitely use her again and again!!
My name is Stephanie and you are going to be super happy to have me as your dog's walker/ caretaker! I am a dog loving, outdoor enthusiast, and have been working with dogs professionally since 2010. Dogs and I connect naturally for the reason that we love the same activities (almost all of them). Your dog is going to get outdoors for new adventures with me to fulfill their doggy needs, and during down time ...
What Stephanie would like to know about your dog
No two dogs are exactly alike.
- Please be forthcoming with all of your dogs needs, aggressions, allergies, unique behavior quirks, favorite/disliked activities, and anything else unique about your pet that I should know to make them happy, comfortable, and most of all safe to themselves, and the other dogs and people around them.
-If your dog has any aggressions or special needs, please let me know. I enjoy working with dogs who require special attention and behavioral training. Aggressions do not make your dog a “bad” dog and I absolutely will not discriminate, it makes your dog a dog! Please do not be afraid to share. Most commonly I can help your dog with food aggression, socialization, compulsive behaviors, and recall training on trails. These are my specialties.
- Precise commands! Very important. We will go over in person what vocabulary suits your pup. "Potty", "go pee pee", "go make", all mean the same thing to a human --- but your pup will only respond precisely to what they know.
Seriously --- no two dogs are the same. Tell me everything there is to know about your little one that will make their time with me safe, comfortable, and the most fun experience possible! I cater exactly to your dogs needs during our time together, so please don't be shy in sharing what they love (and don't love to do)!
For our Meet and Greet;
I will only meet at a neutral site. Being strangers at first, I would like to take safety precautions before we move forward. I hope on the other side as a pet parent you understand and value safety for yourself, your furchild, as well as the walkers in the Rover community.
Safety is priority to me. If you push to meet at my home first or want to communicate outside of the rover app, please know that I will have to politely decline our meet and greet all together. If you are a genuine pet parent looking for a reliable lifetime sitter, that is me, and I hope you value these reasonable requests to have our meet and greet at a neutral site. I am sure you are an amazing family and we are going to get along great, but I must stand to take all precautions, just incase. [I take same precautions caring for your pup] Thank you so much for understanding. I am sincerely looking forward to meeting your family, but most of all --- your pup(s)!!! =D!!
