About Anita M.:
35 years of experience

I have been around dogs and cats my entire life and always been an animal lover.

I have one dog, two cats and two horses - Very much my family.

Animals/pets are a lifetime commitment - I've always felt strongly about that, which is one of the reasons I became a certified dog trainer - To help "dogs with people problems" (as Cesar Milan says).

I welcome the chance to be your trusted Pet Sitter!

About this sitter:
35 years experience in caring for dogs, cats & horses. I have owned horses for 23 years. I have done many house/pet-sitting jobs with as many as 25 horses (I have also taken care of cows in the past). I'm also a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College.

Services include and not limited to:

Feeding, cleaning & mucking, mail pick-up, errands, walking dogs, working on any canine behavior issues.

Great references, reasonable rates. I will treat your 4-legged family members as my own.

Please note: If you live more than 10 miles from Greeley, I must be able to stay overnight and bring my dog with me. If that doesn't work for you, I'm probably not a good choice.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

When I was growing up, we were rarely without pets - mostly dogs, so...I guess for 50+ years.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

What is the owners typical routine/schedule like as it relates to their dogs? Are there any issues I might be able to help with in regards to training, behavior correction, etc.? No breed preferences.

I do need to be able to bring my dog on most sitting jobs, which I have done for other folks, so I just need to be able to make sure your dogs get along with mine. He is a very well-behaved, well-trained Welsh Corgi and has been around many dogs throughout his life.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

Yes.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Only orally or topically, no shots.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Most of the day. I am self-employed and work out of my home. If I'm sitting at your home, I can run my business from there, as long as I have internet access.

Where will my dog sleep?

Wherever they would normally sleep at home.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

If at my home: There are many places to walk within the condo complex. I live in a quiet neighborhood that has a lot of places to walk.

Are you willing to do additional tasks at my home while I'm away
(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Yes.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

I prefer staying at the home. I am self-employed and home-based, so I would be with your dog the majority of the time. Because I have cats and horses, I would most likely just need to leave every 2-3 days for a maximum of 3-4 hours (my horses are boarded, so I don't do daily care with them).

Winnie Fast & Furious

Age: 10 years, 9 mo. old
Weight: 30 lbs.
Breed: Pembroke Welsh Corgi

I got Winnie as a puppy and immediately began using my dog training skills with him. I got him specifically to do agility.

We competed in many NADAC agility trials as well as AKC Rally Obedience - He did very well and earned many titles.

Now, he just enjoys going to my horses with me, hanging out outside and meeting new dogs, cats and other animals on my pet sitting jobs.

Fantastic experience - would definitely use again! This was our first time with Rover.com and with Anita. She met with us prior to our trip Brownie immediately liked her. While we were gone she sent us updates and quite a good picture of Brownie. She really made us feel comfortable that Brownie was well taken care of while we were gone. Well done!!!

Anita did a great job with my two dogs. She stayed in our home and that worked out great. Her knowledge and dog training were appreciated. I look forward to having Anita sit for our dogs in the future.

Anita was very helpful over the Christmas and New Years holidays. She pick up my cat, Monty, and he stayed with her for nearly two weeks. She sent pictures all the time. Monty even seemed a lil sad when we returned. He doesnt have other animals at the house, so im sure he missed his new buddies! I will definitely use Anita again!
