I have over 12 years of experience with my own dogs and some experience as a volunteer at an animal shelter. On average I dedicate approximately 5 hours per day to my dogs, so dog sitting is more of a hobby than a job. I will do my best to make your dog feel at home and make sure that he/she is as comfortable as possible. I will also walk your dog if that's something you'd like.
I've been a dog lover ever since I can remember but I didn't have my own until I was 9 years old. My first dog was a german shepherd/lab mix, whom unfortunately passed away a year ago. I currently have two dogs: a white shepherd who is 7 months old and a 7 year old chihuahua/french poodle mix. I strongly believe that dogs are the most loyal friends anyone could ever have, and if there's anything I learned from my beautiful Gota, it's that true friendship never turns its back on you.
My only concern is how your dog gets along with other dogs since I have two dogs of my own. I have no breed preferences, I have plenty of room in my backyard for breeds of all sizes but giant sized breeds are a little more difficult to handle on my own.
Sure, I've had to give my dogs medicine on several occasions and have become comfortable with the process.
I plan on spending as much time with your dog as I spend with mine, which is about 5 hours per day. I am currently a college student so I try my best to balance my time between homework and my pets.
My backyard is a fenced in, spacious area with plenty of room for your dog to run around freely.
Depending on whether your dog is an indoor or outdoor dog, he/she will sleep either outside or inside the house. If your dog is potty trained, letting him/her sleep inside should be no problem.
I will take your dog around my neighborhood and to Magnolia Park, which is very close to my house. I usually walk my dogs anywhere between 30 min to an hour.
