Individual cancelled at last minute due to family issue, which resulted in individual not providing services. Unfortunately last minute cancellation resulted in me having to reschedule my trip.

Virginia was Amazing, sending multiple pics and letting us know if there were any changes to Pebbles and Henry’s health. I’m sure Virginia is in our future when we need a dog sitter. You can’t get any better than her.

Virginia did a wonderful job with our dogs. She sent us pictures every day and they looked very happy: I just booked her again for another dog sitting appointment.

What Virginia would like to know about your dog

Before keeping a dog in my home, for their own safety, I would like to know as much of their history as I can. Are they escape artists, have they ever been aggressive towards other dogs before? What is your dog's temperament? What are their special needs/requests? Is your dog fully potty trained? What are the behaviors that concern the owners?Seemingly insignificant details can surface in a new environment. Knowing as much of their history as I can, I can better work with the owners to identify triggers and to modify potentially troublesome behavior for their pet's safety and comfort.

When Virginia watches your pet

I have a great downtown walking neighborhood close to Landa Park and the West Loop Off Leash Dog Park, as well as, a nice backyard for a good game of fetch.
