Wendy was great! Took great care of our boys and they seemed to have a great time. Wendy also took lots of pictures so we didn't miss them quite so much. I highly recommend Wendy for dog sitting and will use her services again!

I have had over 25 years of Nurse's Aide experience which enables me the knowledge ...

What Wendy would like to know about your dog

All breeds welcome! I have owned and I absolutely LOVE Pitbulls and I'm also very fond of the large breeds. I Love all breeds!
I need to know about any medical issues and medication administration instructions.
I also should know about any special eating habits, restrictions, and or allergies.
I also like to know about your Dog's sleeping arrangement at home so I can make them comfortable at night.
It would also be helpful to know about anything that you may need help with on a behavior level, so I can work on it during their stay with me. Any problem that arises can be handled because I can consult with my Sister. I have lots of resources at my fingertips. The more I know about your Dog, the better I can help. Whereas I cannot claim to fix difficult problems, I can work with your Dog while they are in my home.

Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience

When Wendy watches your pet

DOG JOGGING!
I have a Dog excersise jogger attached to my Bicycle. I put neon safety vests on the Dogs to wear and I have a safety light attached so we can be easily seen.
I can walk or Jog your dog on brand new sidewalks and paved trails being built right here in Manchester. Perfect for high energy or nervous dogs. I find that running dogs on my bicycle is a fun and focused activity for most dogs. As I do not have a back yard, I will never, ever allow your dog off the leash. I will attend to them at all times while they are outside. The dog jogging is something that sets me apart from most every pet-sitter. Most sitters have a fenced in back yard. Simply letting a dog out in the yard is not a true workout. Getting the dogs out of the house and into a jog, or a run is incredibly beneficial, both physically and psychologically.
If your dog is elderly or has hip problems, then obviously, he/ she is not able to be run with the bike.
Again, I will still never let them off the leash when I take them outside.
My backyard is the River Rasin. I have a deck that overlooks the River. It's a very calming and picturesque residence which I live, with the exception of the occasional Squriell on the Tree outside of my window. I have full Southern exposure so your Dog can lay in the Sun and relax. I like to play ball inside my home as well as practice relaxation techniques such as Doggie massage coupled with essential oils. I want your Dog to be as comfortable as possible in my home.
On hot Summer days, they can go in for a swim in the River.
After the swim, I can take them around the block from my home to my Sister's dog grooming shop, and give your dog a nice bath after swimming in the River. This is why I have resources most other Pet Sitters do not have. Professional Dog Grooming is available and can be arranged when your Dog stays with me (additional pricing applies).
I have a very flexible schedule. When I'm gone away from home, I'm usually only away for a couple of hours at a time. I take a self defence class only twice a week in the evening. If I have multiple dogs, I do not have to attend class that week, as my flexibility also extends to that class.
When I go visiting, I have a good friend of mine who is 105 years old. I can bring Toy breeds with me when I visit her. This makes for great pet therapy for her, as well as fantastic socialization for the Dog.
Visits from Dogs make her incredibly happy. I usually take pictures of the Dogs on her lap and I send the pics to the Owner. Everyone loves it!
If your Dog has socialization issues,
with permission, I may ask to take them into downtown Ann Arbor for a walk around lots of people. Ann Arbor also has multiple Dog parks we can visit to work on socialization skills. There are fantastic places to walk Dogs in the Manchester area including trails and woods and miles of bike paths. I know we will have lots of fun together!
