I've lived with dogs for almost my whole life, and a few years with cats/birds/fish. I'm a biologist by trade, with research experience in "environmental enrichment" and detailed knowledge of animal development, behavior, immunology, and nutrition/metabolism. I apply principles from these fields whenever possible for making my own dog (a 2y/o poshie) as happy and healthy as he can be, and would do the same for yours!
Your home, my home, overnighters, training, bathing/nail trims, just watching your pet(s), or letting them play with mine are all on the table. To clarify my pricing, I would only charge $20 for a whole 8hr day of dog sitting if you dropped off / picked up at my house and were okay with them playing with my dog! Drop-ins at your house or particular activities (like walking) may also be subject to discounts based on distance and frequency.
