Hello Pet parents!
(*Sorry for any recent delays, original member of HouseMyDog, so some confusion on switch to Gudog*)

My name is Charis and I am originally from California. I am a part-time veterinary surgeon in Glasgow. My partner works for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and also runs a dog walking business on his many days off between shifts. Between the two of us, one is always around, and together my partner and I enjoy dog sitting.

We have a playful very friendly Samoyed, Artek that LOVES the company of other canine companions. He loves new friends and is a very happy host, in fact most dogs in the neighborhood always stop by for playtime at our house. Old, young, big, small, we know your dog is part of the family and I will make sure they have a great time.

I am active and love to go for walks/runs/hikes. I am especially fond of strolls along the canal, trips to Mugdock country park, and the hills around Glasgow.

We live in a spacious, warm 2 bedroom house with lots of room to play and private secure gardens (+ a play pool for warmer days!). We are also never out of dog treats (but will of course take into consideration any dietary requirements).
I have a SUV and would be happy to collect/drop-off your pet as required.

I am confident to give oral and injected medication, and anything else your pet may need. And happy to meet and feed any special diets.
Any questions or queries, feel free to ask me!

May 2019

Robbie had a great time with Charis. She kept me updated with photos and videos which was good as it was the first time I had left him. I would be happy to leave him with them again.

& Luna

October 2018

I can’t recommend puppy holidays with Charis highly enough ... I just picked up my dog this afternoon after a 2 week stay !! We couldn’t have felt more at ease leaving Luna here and Charis was more than happy to stay in touch and to send over updates and pictures of Luna’s antics while we were away.
Luna has came home happy and as content as ever ... she has definitely been well looked after and cared for just as she would have been at home. It is most reassuring that your dog will go to bed with cuddles and company in comparison to a boarding kennel.
We will definitely be booking with Charis again in the future !! Thanks you again Xxxx

& Poppy

July 2018

Can't thank Charis enough for looking after our dog Poppy. We could go on holiday in the knowledge that Poppy would be cared for, in a happy and safe environment.

Charis provided regular updates and photos of what Poppy had been doing on her holiday too :-)

Would highly recommend Charis to anyone who is looking for a dog sitter/ carer, and we will certainly be looking to book again.

& Culra

June 2019

My family's two Tollers had a great week with Charis! She was very friendly, approachable and went out of her way to make the whole experience easy for me and my family. It was our first house my dog experience and she offered to come round and meet me and the dogs before their stay - immediately putting our minds at rest as she was a natural with the dogs! Charis was very flexible with the pick up and drop off and picked the dogs up from my brother and dropped them back with me as we had some difficulties with timings - making the whole exchange easy and allowed us to relax about our trip. The dogs came back healthy and happy and appeared to love Charis. She kept us updated with photos and pictures and the dogs clearly had fun on their wee holiday away from home.

All in all a lovely girl who is great with dogs who I would highly recommend to anyone considering trying boarding their dog away from home. Thanks again Charis!

& Oscar

June 2019

Oscar came home a happy dog after staying with Charis for 16 nights. This was my first experience of using this service and was more than happy with it. It was hassle free and he was even picked up and dropped off at times when it suited me best. I would definitely recommend Charis to look after your furry friends.

& Rocco

June 2019

Charis looked after young sprocker puppy, Rocco who is only five months old for two weeks while we were on holiday recently and it's clear that Rocco was very well looked after indeed.

Rocco was visibly upset when Charis left us after we picked him up from her and he only does that with close family members so that told me how well looked after he was.

Charis kept us informed regularly by email and by text during our holiday with an regular update on how Rocco was doing along with photos which completely reassured us and immediately put our minds at rest.

Charis was extremely professional in all of our dealings with her and she responded to texts, emails and phone calls quickly and courteously.

Charis asked us to bring Rocco to her home prior to him going to stay with her so that the two of them could meet each other and it was obvious then that she was a committed dog lover.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Charis to anyone looking for a reliable professional to look after their dog for a short stay or a longer one such as ours, in fact, I intend to ask Charis to look after Rocco in the near future due to my upcoming work commitments and hope to have Rocco looked after by Charis on an ongoing basis.

Thanks again Charis.
