Such a great experience having Tess puppysit for our energetic, 8-month old Golden Retriever!

I would 100% ask ...

What Tess would like to know about your dog

I'm flexible with dog breed preferences, but the more you can provide about his or her routine the better! I know they're best behaved when they're tired and loved!

When Tess watches your pet

We can go anywhere, I obviously prefer local spots but a personal favorite dog-friendly hike is Tilden regional forest! I have a car that I don't mind getting dirty as long as your loved one doesn't mind car rides.
