I am sad to say that this is a one star rating. I left my dog in her care for 4 days, and there were at least two major problems that I had.
She went against my request that my dog only be crated while they were not home. She had mentioned the first day that he seemed overwhelmed and that he needed a break. It was not specifically indicated that he was crated during ...

Whitney was awesome! My dog Tahoe is 14 years old and I rarely leave him. I was in Hawaii for 5 days/nights and she sent me a picture every day and shared with me how he was doing and what he was doing. She was very conscientious about the fact that Tahoe was older and she had a couple of younger dogs that liked to play. When I came to pick him up she ...

Thank you so much Debra! I loved Tahoe and really enjoyed working with you!

Whitney was very flexible and accommodating. She arranged a meet and greet before the reservation, which was great to give our dogs a chance to interact. She is very knowledgeable about dogs, and I could tell she has a passion for them. She sent me pictures while I was gone, which was very helpful.

Hello! My name is Whitney and I live in South Austin. I love dogs. Ever since I was small, my family has always had many pets. From tiny to gigantic, I have dealt with Toy Poodles to Doberman Pinschers to Great Danes. I am now the proud owner of Siberian Huskies and love all the craziness that comes with the breed.

I am just starting out on Rover, but have established a small client base ...

What Whitney would like to know about your dog

Currently, most of my experience in dog-sitting is with huskies, and I am definitely very comfortable hosting northern breeds. However, I am perfectly open to hosting any breed.

I do have a few requirements, the first being that all dogs being hosted are small dog-friendly. I actively keep my small pups separated from the large ones while I am away, but both my smalls are seniors and it is my number one priority to keep them safe while hosting other dogs. If your pup is not small dog-friendly, I am still willing to host for the day, but need the info up front so I can plan accordingly!

I like to do a meet and greet beforehand when possible to ensure all dogs are going to get along nicely. I understand it can be overwhelming for a new pup coming into a home with four dogs! If that isn't possible, I try to utilize my partner to meet me on a walk with the new dog or, if I have no other options, I utilize the backyard for a meet and greet with my large dogs first, then, once things settle down, my smaller pups. Fortunately, my gang has never met a dog they don't like!

Basic info is always appreciated -- if your dog suffers from separation anxiety or is destructive, it definitely isn't a deal-breaker for me, but knowing up-front is super helpful in making sure your pup is as comfortable as possible during their stay! Info regarding their eating habits and if they are food/toy/treat protective is also very useful!
