We were very happy with the care our pets received from Tracie. They both seemed very happy when we returned home. She sent us several up dates while we were gone, which was very comforting for us. The house was very clean and looked as we left it. We would recommend her to our friends.

Tracie is fabulous. She stays at our home with our dogs while we are out of town and treats them like they are her very own. Our house is always just as clean as when we left and most of the time looks better. We would recommend Tracie 100% to love on your pets and keep them safe while you are away,

Tracie has been our pet sitter for three years. We go abroad for three months every year and having Tracie take care of our elderly dog makes this possible. She truly is an "Animal Whispere". Her kindness and empathy for animals is amazing. I cannot recommend her enough!

I pass the sniff test! Calm energy

I have been a pet and house sitter for 3 years in Minnesota and 2 years in Indiana. The dogs (and cats and other pets) in my care get kind treatment, compassion, calm direction and plenty of car rides (if desired.) Animals are my kindred spirits, have been all my life!
The humans get a mature, responsible person with administrative skills, real estate property and home maintenance knowledge. I respect your home and beloved pets ...

What Tracie would like to know about your dog

Questions I ask dog owners are: Age of dog, if they have any health issues, what their favorite toys are, if they have dietary restrictions, any behavior quirks, what type of training they have had - hand signals, special words to get a response.
I don't have any breed preferences, but the super muscular dogs - bulldogs, Old English Bull dog, Rottweilers, are sometimes stronger than I can handle.

When Tracie watches your pet

As a house sitter staying with a dog(s) for the first time, I will try to make the dog as comfortable with me as possible. Allow them to greet me at their own pace. At night time on the first night, I will sleep on the floor or sofa near the dog to reassure them that they are not alone, that I am a new pack leader, and they can count on me to keep them safe. We'll play with their favorite toys, and follow their usual daily routine. For walks, we'll
walk mostly in dog's own neighborhood, but if client approves, will walk in parks, and ride in car on errands and for change of scenery. They will also get some leg and back massages for a bit of pampering.
I try to make your pet's life as seamless to their usual one as possible! It's so fun to see how excited dogs are to go for a ride in the car!
