This is exactly what you think it is. We offer various lengths of walks from quick potty breaks to long hikes or walks. The length of time is up to you. We can come as often as you need for your dog. We can also walk your dog in a group or privately. The choice is yours. We never walk more than 3 dogs together at one time for safety reasons. Group walks are among easy-going dog-friendly dogs. No aggressive or reactive dogs for the group walks. We do not introduce dogs to the pack walks that we have not personally walked previously. Again, this is for safety reasons. Sometimes dogs behave differently when they are around new people and new dogs.
If your dog is shy, we are happy to provide solo walks. We specialize in shy timid dogs. We will take the time to let your dog feel safe before we ever leash them up and take them for a walk. We never force shy dogs to do anything until they are comfortable with us.
Have a puppy that pulls, lies down on walks, or nips? No problem. We are great with puppies too.
Older, slower dogs are ok too. We are happy to accommodate dogs that want to do more sniffing than walking. We love being outside as much as your dog does.
We can check on your pets for 30 minutes, by the hour or overnight. Maybe you have cats? Older dogs that just need a potty break? Animals on medication? All of our sitters are insured, certified in Pet CPR and First Aid. Puppies that need company? Maybe your dog is leash-reactive but is great otherwise? We can help with all of that.
Pet sitting is a wonderful option for a pet that does better in their own home. Pet sitting is the safest option. You know your house and yard are already escape proof. You also don't have to worry about any other dogs or illnesses. We don't even offer boarding because pet sitting is so much safer. We can stay overnight if you want that but we are just as happy to check in on your dog and go home to our own beds.
Many different types of pet sitting options are available. If we don't have a package that is perfect for you, we will create one.
With pet sitting, you don't have to worry about your dog that has separation anxiety. We will spend as much time with your dog as you need.
Of course, we do all the normal pet sitting things too like bring in your mail and keep an eye on your house by making it looked lived in. We clean up after ourselves and make sure your dog gets potty breaks and meals on their normal schedule too.
Betty, my 3 year old border collie is available for dogs that enjoy the company of other dogs on sittings that I provide (she is my dog after all). We have one client (an American Staffordshire Terrier) that currently loves for Betty to play with them because Betty has such a great dog-friendly personality. She is great at adjusting her play style depending on the size of the other dogs. She always plays so gently with the toy breeds too. We have a chihuahua in our household and she puts up with a lot of rough play from him. She's great with large or small dogs as long as they are dog-friendly, neutered/spayed and up to date with all vaccines as she is. The safety of the animals is and always will be our primary focus so this option is only for dogs that are a good fit and get along well. Dogs are never left alone unsupervised while pet sitting unless they are from the same household or can be separated.
