Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Sydney, hands down, is the best sitter I have used on Rover. I don’t think my dog wanted to leave when I came to pick him up. Not only is Sydney extremely professional and responsive, you can tell that she truly cares for your pet. She was super attentive with my dog and sent me pictorial updates daily. I would use her again for my next trip in a heartbeat.
I have known Sydney going on ten years and I could not say that I know many people as trustworthy, honest, compassionate and caring as her. She is a genuine diamond of a person and now a days that is rare to find. When we had our sweet Mr. Brown (mini dachshund) she would watch him on and off. Her dog Biscuit (which resides at her mothers home now) and Mr. Brown were best friends ...
Your pup can be part of the pack!
Your dog is like your child. When you are away, I want to assist you in making him/her feel as comfortable as possible (not to mention easing your mind as well). I can keep your set routines as well as provide personal attention to your fur baby! Walking, pottying, playing, and even giving your pet its medication are all included, not to mention following your regular feeding schedule. My 7lb. Yorkie Sadie loves to ...
What Sydney would like to know about your dog
Honestly, I want to know what you think is most important about your dog. Here are a few of the questions that run through my mind when I am pet sitting.
When you feed/water your dog and how much?
Is it spayed/neutered? Is it up to date on shots?
Are there any medical conditions that I need to be aware of?
Is it on medications? If so, what kind, how much, and when should I administer it?
Where is your dog's vet located?
Does it have any idiosyncrasies that I should know? (for instance, my little Harley didn't like feet. He loved people, but did not want a foot near his body or he would go ballistic and try to bite you. Poor thing, I can only imagine what happened to him before I got him.)
Are there any vet appointments that I should attend with your dog?
What is your dog's normal routine for day and night?
Are there places the dog is not allowed to go?
Where should I place your pup's poo?
Can we go on a walk or to the dog park?
This list is just some examples!
I love all dogs. However, larger dogs that are aggressive are just not up my alley. For instance, if your dog is meant to be a guard dog versus a family pet/part of the family, I might not be the sitter for you.
