This is our third time using Ximena and we absolutely love having her! She handles our big German Shepherd with ease and wears him out with lots of walks and play time. She keeps us updated daily with texts and pictures and we always come home to a clean house. We never worry when she is watching our baby! Highly recommend Ximena! Thank you so much!

She did a great job with our three kids. There are big dogs with very different personalities and they seemed to have a great weekend and enjoyed her company. Thank you so much Ximena!

Ximena took care of our 3 dogs (2 young and very active shepherd/lab/boxer mixes and one senior more sedentary Jack Russell/beagle mix) over a long weekend, and did a fantastic job! She is obviously comfortable with a variety of dogs, and clearly enjoys being with them. She walked the dogs daily, taking them early because of summer heat. Our house was in perfect condition on our return! She was respectful of us ...

Let's go for a hike!

I have always lived in a home with pups, but I am currently a graduate student at Wash U, so my pup is living with my mom in Nevada until I graduate. I'm on Rover because it gives me a chance to catch some of that missing dog time, so you can bet your pets will be treated just like they were my own.

As far as breed experience I grew up with German Shepherds ...

What Ximena would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, but I do have some more general preferences. I feel strongly about responsible pet ownership so I only care for spayed or neutered dogs, with up-to-date vaccinations.

I will not care for animals without a prior meet-and-greet. There, I'll ask a lot of questions about your dog(s)' schedule, general health, special diets, medication, training, etc. I also ask that we do a short test walk, just to assess their manners on-leash so I know what to expect.

Please provide any information about particularities, special considerations or precautions that I should take while caring for your pup that you think I should know.

Additionally, due to restrictions in my apartment complex, dog boarding is limited to smaller dogs (not to exceed 25 pounds) who are not barkers. Boarded dogs should be completely house-broken and generally not destructive.
