Velvet and her husband are such a great couple!!! While we entrusted our little girl to their care, they provided frequent updates via Rover with pictures and cute captions of her daily events. I highly recommend Velvet for the care of your “little ones” We will definitely return our Bella to their caring and open hospitality in the future!

This is my first time using Rover and Velvet was friendly and very communicative. She was watching both my dachshunds when I was away for almost a week so I felt weary at first of how this would all work out. She sent me photos daily of the pups and made them feel like home. She has a nice big yard as well which my dogs were able to play with hers. My next trip ...

It was our pleasure having them. Wrangler and Angus will be so excited to see them again!

Home full-time, fully fenced yard

A little about me…
My name is Velvet. I am currently a student at CSN. Majority of my coursework is completed online, with limited on campus requirements. Therefore, I am home all day.
I have housesat and pet-sat many times throughout my life for family, friends, and friend-of-friends. I have sat for fish, cats, dogs, birds, horses, cows, and even a guinea pig once. I have personally owned fish, ferrets, a gerbil, cats, and dogs ...

What Velvet would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences. I will keep my dogs separated from yours until they get used to each other, and respect each other's personal space. I would like to know if your pup is potty trained. Do they know any commands? Personality traits, food motivated, restrictions, etc. Whatever you can tell me that will make your pup more comfortable while with me.

When Velvet watches your pet

We can walk around our neighborhood. There are plenty of things to see and sniff. I use this opportunity to reinforce good behaviors and additional training, sitting at crossings and leave it for when they become too interested in something. On weekends we may visit one of the many parks around, in the summer we will stop in at the splash pad. Our dogs go everywhere with us, so weekends include trips to Home Depot or Starbucks for a puppachino, before we hit the parks. We also like to go to Lake Mead on the weekends in the summer for some swimming (life jackets required). We can play fetch with a ball or Frisbee in the backyard. There are plenty of ropes for tug-of-war. In the summer we will play in the sprinklers and hose (this is for my enjoyment too). I like to do short training sessions throughout the day. There is always plenty of affection, pets and cuddling too.
