Service Description
Hi, I am a 26 year old dog lover. I have trained dogs before and pet sit regularly. We have a very sweet and calm dog called Andy. He gets along well with most dogs and isn't territorial. We have a medium fenced in backyard, although the dogs usually hang out inside with us for the most part. We would love to have some more more canine company, and someone for Andy to play with!

We walk the dogs every day to local dog parks (depending on the dogs age and own exercise needs). I am more than happy to continue training and any specific commands that you are using: Sit, wait, come, shake hands, basic road safety, fetch, lie down, stand, heel.

I live in a share house with four other people all mid to late 20's. There is generally always someone home. We are all animal lovers and enjoy providing dogs with a far better option than a kennel.

We ask that you bring the pups food for the stay. We have comfy old armchairs outside and couches or cushions inside but bringing a bed from home is preferred because the it's familiar and comforting for the pup.

Unlimited pats provided. :)
