Dogsitter

Hiya guys, as some of you know i am spaying Uli on wednesday and though i will be with her for 5 days straight i need to go back to work so i have been going all over the internet and vet clinics, doggie groups and the like looking for what i thought i would never need, a dog sitter. Seems the dog sitting business is booming in the pet world and as popular as it is however, it is hard to find the right person to take care of your beloved furbaby. After all they can no talk so if they were to be mistreated etc etc they wouldn't be able to tell us so it is super important to find the right person with love for animals but good experience and training.
So how was your experience? did you ever think that you would ever need a doggy Mary Poppins?
And finally my dear fellow havanese lovers, I am looking for a reliable dog sitter here in edmonton and despite the bunch of brochures i have collected, i want someone that is recommended by dog owners. If you could let me know of any good one (if you live here) that'd be awesomeeee
Cheeriosssss

If you ask for pet sitter recommendations in this area on this list and do not get any recommendations, I can try to ask on the Port. Water Dog list for you...but I think this group will come up with recommendations...just need to know where you are.
I think the best is personal recommendation/referrals from people you know..not vets, pet shops, etc...jmho and It can be a recommendation any breed owner...

I have asked around but all of my friends leave their dogs alone, with relatives or the like but nobody has had the chance to experience a dog sitter. I had the option of leaving her with someone i know from work. She would come and stay at my house, but honestly i barely know her that well so that is mainly why i am not sure what else to do

If my PWD group has a sitter in Edmonton, Alberta, that will be the correct location?

Usually my mom or my daughter babysit Stella when I'm planning to be gone but my groomer also babysits her. Do you have a groomer that would be willing to dogsit?
