Tessa was very good with Roxie. Roxie seemed to have a very good time there. Communication was excellent and I got good updates on how Roxie was doing.

They call me "dog whisperer"

I've been watching and caring for dogs for about 10 years now, having had up to 3 of my own dogs at a time, as well as having worked in vet offices and a dog grooming salon. At both of these I dealt with a wide range of breeds, temperaments and sizes of dogs daily. I have quite a bit of experience with dog sitting and walking as well. I can easily handle even large ...

What Tessa would like to know about your dog

Since I do have a 6 year old child, I need to know whether a dog has ever shown any aggression toward children. My child has been taught to be gentle with and respectful of dogs, but a dog who tends to overreact to loud noises or abrupt movements may not be a good fit. I also cannot watch any pets with dog aggression, as I do have a dog of my own. I am happy to help with all breeds of dog.

Please note: All dogs over 6 months of age MUST have a rabies vaccination. There is an intact male dog on the property. He will never be left unsupervised with client dogs, but I would strongly prefer that all female dogs over 6 months of age be spayed. I will absolutely not keep any females in heat inside my home.

When Tessa watches your pet

I live in a neighborhood with lots of quiet streets and siewalks. I also have a good sized yard where dogs can run and play.
