I have experience with dogs for over 40 years. I have had boxers, cocker spaniels, poodles, beagles and german shepherds. When I go on vacation, I never leave my own dogs at a kennel. I believe having someone come to my home, or stay in my home, lessens the stress on the dog. I worked for law enforcement agencies for the past 10+ years. I am honest and trustworthy. Care. com is currently submitting my background check for your safety. I have done pet sitting for numerous friends and family. I would love to help make your experience away from home less stressful by taking care of your fur baby.
