No Females in Heat
Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Stephanie is great! She got back to us right away and took very good care of our three German Shepherds. I highly recommend her.
Very happy! Berkley looked happy got some exercise while I was at work and I loved that she sent me pictures of how happy he was
Stephanie was an awesome sitter! I loved seeing pictures of my dog and knowing he was so happy while I was away. I will definitely use her again.
A trained dog is a happy dog.
I absolutely love dogs - I mean, they really are "man's best friend", right? To help you to understand: not only have I worked for veterinary clinics and wildlife rehabilitation centers in my past, but I have also been a dog trainer for 5+ years. I will also soon receive my MSc degree from WVU in Wildlife and Fisheries Resources, so if you have a family with fur, scales, or feathers - bring them all. I live ...
What Stephanie would like to know about your dog
If your dog is not socialized or friendly with other dogs, then we will need to introduce ourselves a couple of times before our first adventure together (that includes day sitting and taking walks). Dogs can be shy and get scared easily - I understand that - and I want to be sure that we can work out all of those anxious kinks before we begin our adventures together. If that requires a bit of socialization, then that can be included in their stay.
Therefore, I have no breed preferences - I don't believe in that. Yes, genetics play a role in the development of social behaviors in your pet. But through proper training and socialization, those behaviors CAN be broken - I've seen it, and I've done it.
Please keep in mind: Dogs don't WANT to be aggressive or fight. They are TAUGHT to be that way or to play that role. Dogs are pack animals - they are loyal, loving, and only want to make their pack leader happy. All behaviors, at any age, are reversible.
