Hello! I'm looking for an engaging walker/sitter/boarder for my Australian cattle dog mix, Willow. She is a year and a half old, 20lbs of fluff and muscle, fully trained, though she likes to be stubborn sometimes, and gets excited on walks, she's extremely loving and is great with people.
She is good with other dogs as well as long as they don't play too rough with her and give her space. She likes side by side play and not contact play when it comes to other dogs.
Willow is a lean, mean, running machine! Don't let her little frame and short legs fool you, that girls got speed for days! She loves large fenced in grass areas (with no foxtails or pokey balls). She'll run after tennis balls until she collapses (something to be mindful of).
We are looking for someone to either come to our house to walk and play with her for an hour or two during the hours of 10am-3 p.m. on MW. We would also be able to drive her to your own house to dog sit for awhile if you have animals of your own you think she will like (a play date will need to be supervised by us first to make sure that they are compatible). We also have boarding opportunities if all goes well and Willow enjoys her time with you (your house or ours).
We had an unfortunate incident with the last person that watched her. We trusted a family friend's judgement on a person we shouldn't have. We hope to not have the same fears going forward, as we would love to be able to go on vacation knowing she is being loved and cared for in a way we would want.
Willow can't wait to meet her new friend!
Payment will be discussed.
