The biggest complement I could give a dogsitter is that my strong-willed, attention-demanding 70lb girl hardly notices when I get home from a 10 day trip. She is calm, happy, and continues with our regular routine as if I never left. She shows no signs of stress, neglect, hunger or anxiety and is the happy tail-wagging mutt that I left. Tressa is our "dog-whisperer" and we felt completely comfortable leaving her with our two dogs ...
Tressa has been taking care of our pups for over seven years now. She is caring, compassionate and very responsible. She has an incredibly calm energy, something that is a must for our strong-willed 75 lb. pit/lab mix. Our vacations are so much more enjoyable when Tressa is taking care of Lucy. We know Lucy is getting lots of love and attention. We also know that Tressa respects our wishes with regard to Lucy ...
I would leave my animals in Tressa's care anytime. She is very kind and affectionate, and absolutely trustworthy. She has cared for my dog and cat on several occasions and will walk, feed, play,give meds,and write notes about the visit too!

I'm the "Go To" in-home sitter for friends and clients because of attentiveness to follow care protocols and time focused on the dog. I strive for a seamless transition from a dog's owner ...
What Tressa would like to know about your dog
I ask for the following information: Vaccinations up-to-date; general temperament; behavioral idiosyncrasies or issues; special needs or requests; and what will help the dog have positive, low-stress experience?
