Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I watch up to 1 or 2 dogs from my home for boarding. I also perform drop in services for all species. I am a long time dog owner with extensive sitting experience for all breeds and sizes that is located in Northborough, MA in an easily accessible location. I would love the opportunity to make your dog feel at home while your away. My home consists of myself, my husband Kevin, daughter (10) and our 2 friendly and playful dogs, a Newfoundland and a German Shepherd. I have owned previously; a beagle, a lab, another german shepherd and a mixed breed lab, whom I owned until old age. Prior to COVID, I was a volunteer dog walker and helper at Buddy dog humane society which has given me ample experience in dealing with puppies, seniors and difficult dogs as well. I am also certified in First Aid and CPR for pets. Our dogs are a very important part of our family and we show that daily by truly making them a part of the majority of our activities, everything from hiking, swimming, camping, beach days, you name it and our buddies are there right alongside of us. When your dogs stays, we guarantee to provide plenty of time for playtime and socialization. We have a large, fenced yard for play and safety. We allow our dogs to sleep in our bedroom and our guests are welcome to as well unless they prefer their own space, crate, etc. We have a large in house crate that is sanitized between uses so no need to lug yours over for the stay (if needed and ONLY if a dog already uses a crate at home). I am available for cat and exotic animal drop in visits only but unavailable for boarding. I have owned reptiles, birds, ferrets, and rabbits. Have you ever had to give a ferret medication? Its certainly an interesting task, lol! Thanks for the opportunity to provide your dog (or other pets) with love and affection while your away :) I have Pet Sitting Insurance. I feel the most important things to ask (besides the food, schedule, rules) is the dogs favorite activity. Although its always great for your dog to experience new things, its great to have an old favorite in your back pocket in case you need to help them relax or feel more at home. Of course, knowing their favorite treat is never a bad thing either. Please note: NO aggressive dogs will be accepted, dog and family friendly only.

Briana and family were AMAZING!! My now husband and I left our 2 year old goldendoodle with them for the weekend as we got married. Roxie can be a little anxious, especially around bigger dogs and Briana made the transition as smooth as possible. She sent so many pictures, morning, afternoon and night, which captured roxie's stay. While she was happy to see us when we finally picked her up, she was also hesitant to leave, which is unlike roxie. Before we kept her there overnight, Briana suggested to have her do day care, just so roxie knew we would be back! This was perfect. Briana is responsive to any questions I had, even after dropping her off and picking her up. This was Roxie's first time away with someone other than family and I couldn't be happier. Our wedding went off without a hitch but knowing Roxie was is great hands, gave me one less thing to worry about. I would highly recommend Briana and family to take care of your little or big fur baby any day of the week!!!

Briana had our two-year-old pup stay with her and she came to check on our cat last weekend while we went away for our anniversary and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the care she took. She was very responsive, provided lots of pics of our pup enjoying herself, and out kitty getting attention, and was a natural with our still-kinda-shy pup. We will absolutely have her take care of our furry ones again soon!

Details: Dog • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Providing exercise • Providing companionship • Taking pet outside • Standard visit (60 minutes) • Three times a day • My home, venue, etc.
