House Sitter in Mansfield

I'm an experienced owner and foster mom. I've volunteered with rescue groups for 35 years and have cared for 150 dogs just in the past 5 years. I volunteer with Shelter2Rescue Coalition, part of the No Coalition that works with shelters to save dogs and cats on euthanasia lists. I help run adoption events at Petco and Petsmart. I'm also a volunteer with German Shorthaired Pointer rescue (TexasGSP) and Schnauzer Rescue of Texas. No children or cats. I have 2 friendly dogs and at least 1 foster for Shelter2Rescue. My goal is a safe, small, calm pack. Theyre likely to hang out with me in my home office during the day, and bedroom at night. You'll see pictures of dogs on my office sofa and in my lap while I work. I call that a normal day at the office. Dogs are introduced to each other one by one to prevent them from being overwhelmed. I want them to have a positive experience from drop off to pick up. Youll receive photos and videos as your dog is introduced to my girls. I can accommodate dogs who are medically fragile and/or senior. No extra charge for meds or additional care; after all, at some point we're all falling apart. My backyard is a dog park A panoramic picture is posted in my PHOTOS section. The backyard gate is locked and there are security cameras. Dogs in my care ... --get filtered water. --get escorted to the backyard if they're a small breed (me, my dogs, or a larger dog in my care). --are secured in rooms or crates before the front door is opened. --don't dig out. My 6' privacy fence is new, regularly inspected, and the perimeter is lined with stone. Me -- Semi-retired, boring book editor I work at home. I run an online business that matches writers with editors and graduate students with dissertation coaches. I host my church's weekly home group. "Come in, grab some decaf, pick a dog. Sit. Stay." I don't drink or smoke, and have passed background checks. _____________________________________________________________________ Notes *Health and safety comes first. I require shot records for every dog in my care. (I understand that older dogs may be past the age for yearly shots.)* *Flea and tick prevention required. *Your dog must be completely housebroken. (Males shouldn't hike a leg in the house.) *Most dogs sleep on my sofa, rugs, or dog beds. Some dogs are crated overnight and when I leave the house. It depends on what they're accustomed to. I admit to having some regulars who sleep in my bed :) *For the peace of the pack, dogs cannot be aggressive, have separation anxiety, or be nonstop barkers. *My freezer has stuffed kongs of all sizes. New boarders are especially grateful for something to occupy them while they acclimate to my home.
