I usually crate her when I am away as she still occasionally counter surfs. But her dog friends will get full run of the house (assuming they are trustworthy). I am looking for others who may want to trade pet sitting. I live in Pleasanton near downtown, have a fenced backyard and am 4 doors away from Orloff Park. I love walking and hiking and your pup will get plenty of exercise. I am home most of the day aside from morning visits to the gym and errands.

Sunny

Pleasanton, CA

  Breed: Miniature Schnauzer

  Weight: 20 lbs

  Age: 3 years old

  Gender: Male

I have experienced with training my pet dog schnauzer and passed the good citizen canine citizen certificate. I am part of the Pleasanton Guide Dogs for the Blind and sometimes petsit guide dogs. I adopted Sunny, my mini schnauzer/yorkshire terrier mix dog from a rehome in December 2021. He will turn 2 in October 2022. I was able to train him to be more social and more calm when meeting people and dogs. Sometimes he barks at large size unfamiliar dogs in the neighborhood but once he sees the dog a few times, he would become friends with the dog. He loves any small breed dogs for sure. We have an indoor/outdoor cat who sometimes sleeps inside the house day or night. He is super friendly with cats. Most of the time during the day he can sleep for hours. He is not very active and does not jump on people but he does guard our house. When unfamiliar guests come to our home at first, he gets a bit nervous. Fun fact is he knows to use a door bell that's made for dogs so he paw the bell when he needs to pee or want to go to the yard vice versa when wanting to come back in the house. He is non shed dog and weighs about 19 pounds. We would like to help pet sit potty trained, non shed breed, dogs smaller than 20 pounds, neutered or spayed. The dog must like cat as we have an indoor/outdoor cat that lives with us.

We moved not long ago to the neighbourhood, she came along with us from Brazil. We used to have family to stay with her when we needed to have our time out, but we can’t count with if here and it’s difficult to find a place we really trust to leave her with. So making friends that have that same passion about their fur family members would make us more comfortable and we would love to be the same for others that need to find this comfort too.

Biscuit & Jake

Pleasanton, CA

  Breed: Mixed Breed

  Weight: 15 lbs

  Age: 3 years old

  Gender: Male

Hi My name is Ayc, and I have 2 wonderful Emotional Support Dogs. They are both male and are both spayed and up to date with ALL vaccines, etc. Biscuit has a bit of anxiety, and I rescued him from an abusive home, so it took him over a year to be comfortable with men. He still is a little iffy towards them and will need time to warm up. He may not eat/drink right away if and when he's in a new place or around new people. He was born with a mohawk...he will bark like a hound dog only if he's scared or hurt. Other than that, he has a regular dog bark, and he loves to cuddle and like a blanket to cover him completely. Jake is greedy and will eat everything in sight, so he needs to make sure he doesn't eat his brother's food or any other food. I rescued him from a family that did not want him anymore. He suffers from dehydration, so water needs to be at hand at all times for him. He is treat motivated if you want him to do something, but he's very smart and understands everything you say. He pees a lot so he needs to go out a bunch and have a crate that the pee falls down (I don't want him laying in his filth) he has skin allergy so he uses medicated shampoo. He has to sleep in a crate, or he will most likely go to the bathroom in the house unless there is a doggy door you show him to use. He can squeeze through small spaces, so check for that if you have a yard because he can get out without you knowing. They both get 2 meals a day, just breakfastat 7 amm and dinner at 6 pm. They get 2 treats during the day @ 11am & 2pm. If Biscuit doesn't eat his put it away, do not give it to Jake as extras.

Sandeep Kolte

Pleasanton, CA

  Breed: Mixed Labrador Husky

  Weight: 60 lbs

  Age: 2 years old

  Gender: Male

We have a black Labrador mixed with husky, his name is Biscuit. He was born in November 2021. He is about 60lbs. He loves to play fetch, chase squirrels and go on strolls or runs along when I go biking. He is very social and has a lot of friends. If we get a chance to host your dog, we prefer a house trained, leash trained dog. We are ok with all the dog things that dogs generally do like sniff everything, chew on stuff, go after squirrels, chase other dogs or fetch. As long as your dog is social, doesn't have separation anxiety or gets anxious when he/she is with new people, bite random people or dogs, we should get along well.

Hello everyone, I am in search of a loving home for my dog while my family and I are out of town for an extended period of time (approximately one month). Unfortunately, we are unable to take our dog with us, and we would like to find a temporary home for her where she will receive the love and care she deserves. Our dog is a small havanese and is around 2 years old. She is sweet, well behaved, and spends the majority of the day sleeping. She is fully trained and up to date on her vaccinations. If you or someone you know is interested in swapping our dog, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. We will provide all necessary supplies and will cover all expenses during her stay with you. Thanks, Monika
