Vanessa was our reliable daily dog walker while work prevented us from granting our pup a midday break. She appeared rain or shine and always kept us posted on any abnormal dog behavior. Our sometimes skittish doggo was always happy to see her. We will definitely reach out to Vanessa the next time we need backup.

The 'Other Human'

Responsible animal enthusiast seeks furry friend. Canines must enjoy long walks to the park, copious belly rubs, and giving squirrels the stink eye. Felines must enjoy long naps, the occasional catnip, and window gazing.

I have had dogs all my life and am the proud parent of an adorable cat, Whopper. I would gladly love on a pooch of my own now if my situation permitted. I have been pet sitting and house sitting for ...

What Vanessa would like to know about your dog

I would love to know about the personality of your pet, as well as details about their daily routine.

General visit questions:
•Are they energetic? Or would they rather lounge around most of the day?
•Do they have a favorite toy? A favorite game/activity for play time?
•What are their favorite things? (Belly rubs, fetch, etc)

•How do you discipline your dog?
•Is your dog socialized to people and other dogs •Are they dog aggressive? Are they food aggressive? Are they feline friendly?
•Is your pet comfortable being handled, brushed, or picked up?
•Does your fur baby have any special medical considerations? Any medications?

•Will I need any codes to open gates or disarm alarms for your home?
•Where would you like me to retrieve and leave your key?

For drop-in and walk requests:
•How are they on a leash? Do they pull, etc? Do they wear a harness?
•Where do you walk your dog?
•How long is a typical walk for your pup?
•Will they go out during the rain? If not, what should I do if it is storming?
•Do you take your dog to dog parks?

For house sitting requests:
•Are they house trained?
•How often do they need to be taken out for walks/potty breaks?
•Is your pup crate trained? When do they need to be crated? How long can they stay crated?
•Are they allowed on furniture?
•Any food allergies or special dietary considerations/restrictions? Can they have treats? (If so, what kind?)
•How long can they be left alone? What would you like me to leave your pet when I leave them? (Any special instructions like closing off a section of the house, leaving out certain toys, etc)

•Are there any other tasks you'd like me to complete while staying at your home? (Bringing in mail, watering plants, etc)

Let me know any other information, details, or quirks about your pet that I may have missed! I want to ensure their routine is as uninterrupted as possible.

I ask that you please provide me with updated veterinarian information for your pets in case of an emergency. If an emergency does occur, I will take your pet to care immediately and notify you once they are in care.

When Vanessa watches your pet

I will provide your dogs with walks (time, frequency, and quantity as instructed by you) around your neighborhood (or preferred route). I will provide all your fur babies with plenty of one-on-one cuddles and playtime as well as group play sessions for multiple pet families. Your dog will be properly picked up after. I will do my best to keep your pup clean along the way, but will clean them up (per your instructions) if a mess is unavoidable.

While staying in your home, I will ensure that pets abide by house rules (if they are allowed on furniture, dietary restrictions, etc). I am comfortable with crating when needed, but am also up for snuggles if your fur baby is allowed to share the bed. I’m also willing to water your plants, bring in the mail, and other household tasks while you're away.

You won't have to guess how your fur baby is doing as I will provide you with text and photo updates throughout my stay.

Before booking a stay, I will come meet your animals to ensure it is a good fit and that I have all necessary information. My schedule is flexible, allowing me to provide your pets and home with customized and professional care.
