Talin sent lots of photos, and made sure she got the information right on food, potential triggers, commands. Rufus was calm within minutes of arriving at her apartment, and calm and happy when I picked him up. I would be happy for Rufus to return anytime!

Talin was so wonderful with Harley! Our girl really enjoyed all her walks and snuggles, she was smiling in every photo sent our way! And Talin was really good about sending lots photos. We will for sure be calling again for pet sitting. Thanks so much Talin!

Harley was such a cuddle-bug, it was my pleasure! Stay in touch! :)

Talin was amazing! She gave our dog lots of great walks and sent a lot of nice photos. She was very responsible and detail oriented about making sure she knew our dog’s schedule.

Friendly and Flexible Pet Care Lady

I grew up with the Monster-In-Your-Closet breed, a Hungarian Puli named Sziggy! I've adored dogs since I was a little girl and I was raised to learn how to interact, groom and avoid being herded by my pal. My dad trained and showed dogs at Westminister and some of his craft carried over to me. I have so much respect for the uniqueness of every breed- I also respect every dog's individuality. I love goofing ...

What Talin would like to know about your dog

I want to know about any health problems or disabilities a dog may have, and whether or not they have separation anxiety or behavioral quirks. I would also like to know how much they bark; I live in an apartment, so I unfortunately cannot accommodate dogs that bark loudly and frequently.

What is your dog's favorite treat, and are they on a special diet?
Do they prefer to sleep in a crate, pen, or on a bed with a human snuggle buddy?
On a normal day, how often and at what times do they usually go out for potty?
Favorite toys, favorite activities, these are all things I ask about to keep a dog feeling at home.

What is their temperament on walks (are they sluggish? high-energy?) How do they interact with other dogs? With children? Have you trained them to walk on a specific side (my dog was trained to always walk on the left)?

When Talin watches your pet

Any dog that stays with me will enjoy plenty of cuddling on the futon if they so desire. Bring along their favorite toys and I will entertain them for hours. They'll enjoy frequent walks and visits to Ringer Park and Coolidge Park. For dogs with more stamina and energy, one of my favorite locations to take them is the Charles River Esplanade. I will run around with the dog still leashed to burn that energy! Pups will be able to see people and other curiosities (especially geese), so if socialization and expansion of your dog's horizons is a goal for you, I'll make it a point to get out there!
