Steve watched our energetic puppy, Luke for a week. This was our first time leaving Luke with anyone since we got him. Steve eased our anxiety with occasional updates and photos. We were able to take Luke for a meet and greet before hand which was great. We were able to see Steve's home and watch Luke interact there. This was a great experience for us and we would recommend Steve to everyone!
Steve was a great sitter. He returned my texts promptly. Jax seemed very happy when I picked him up. I would use Steve as a sitter for Jax again.
My dog is a picky eater when she is away from home. Steve realized that and made extra effort to accommodate her need during the stay. The communication was great with Steve. Very good experience.
Home full-time - medium fenced yard
I live in a big house with a fenced yard in a quiet neighborhood with lots of open space and parks nearby. Your dog will have free roam of my main floor, and I let them out during the day frequently.
I work from home so your dog be with constant company while in my care. I go for a 20-40 minutes walk with all dogs every morning and every evening. I also let them ...
What Steve would like to know about your dog
I'd like you bring the dog by my house for a short visit to get to know your dog and let him/her know this is a fun place to visit. During this time I'll evaluate aggressive tendencies or extreme shyness, and no worries I will give them time to adjust to the surroundings and understand angst that comes with meeting someone new, I want to make sure your dog will be comfortable in my house, with my dog, with my kids.
I prefer crate trained dogs, I will not force your dog into a crate, will work on training them if you ask.
Your dog will have some separation anxiety because you are gone and he/she is not at home; please bring a chew toy from home to help with that.
Also if you are flying to your destination and thus packing bags; dogs understand what packed bags mean and may decide they have other ideas - I advise you bring your dog to my house before you pack a single bag. Also do not plan to drop your dog off on the way to the airport. Drop them off 8 hours before you leave.
