This is the third time Tess has taken care of my babies, she has always had great communication, sends me pictures and a status report. I would recommend Tess as she has been excellent in taking care of my dogs.

We have a schedule for LOVE

Hello! My name is Tess and your dog will love my friendly, loving home. I’ve been around and babysat for dogs all of my life and I currently have two dogs, one of which is a one-year-old rescue puppy who loves to socialize. I’ve always loved dogs and have the care and experience necessary to be a successful dog sitter.

I've always had animals in my home. I got "my" first dog when ...

What Tess would like to know about your dog

Before we meet, I’d like to know:

Is your dog teething? I have plenty of dog teething toys to help.
Is your dog potty trained? I want to make sure I’m aware of their bathroom schedule.
Where do they usually sleep? On the bed? Floor? Couch?
How are they on a leash? I can help with learning techniques.
What’s their favorite toy? If you bring it with you, I’ll make sure they get lots of playtime with it.

Because we have four cats in our household, I need to know how your dog acts around cats.

When Tess watches your pet

There’s plenty of space to roam around my house and yard, but I also live in a very dog-friendly neighborhood. There’s a street nearby called Wieghorst Way that has a mile-long walking and hiking path that dogs love. I like to relax at home while your dog gets accustomed to my place, but once they settle down, I’ll take them out.

I always clean up our dogs if they get muddy outside, so you’ll come home to a nicely brushed, clean dog.
