I require a home visit, where you come to my home with your dog(s) before I can commit to dog sitting them. We need to make sure that your dog is comfortable with me and my pack, and my dogs with them, and that you are comfortable with the accommodations for them.
I prefer to dog sit small breed dogs (under 25 pounds) because two of my dogs are small, my house is compact, and tiny dogs can easily be injured by even the friendliest large dog. I do make exceptions but need to meet the dog first.
We are hoping to be bringing home an Irish Wolfhound puppy at the beginning of May 2021. I will not be accepting new guests (dogs that have not stayed with us before) for several months as we acclimate our new family member and work to socialize him with our small dogs and other experiences.
