Dawn is an awesome canine caregiver. The best proof is the fact our 6 year old, 85 lb German Shepard acts like a 3 month old puppy whenever Dawn arrives in our home. Abby is so excited to see Dawn she forgets we are leaving. I suspect she would go home with Dawn, if given the choice. Dawn has watched our dog in our home as well as hosting Abby in her home. Dawn reliably exercises our dog on walks, loves on her and interacts with her above and beyond the basic requirements of dog sitting. I highly recommend Dawn as a dog sitter. Your fur babies will love her as much as Abby does!
