My Name is Erin and I love dogs! I have an 8 year old golden retriever named Cody that helps me, he loves other dogs I call him my personal assistant. I grew up with dogs and cats and worked in an animal hospital when I was in high school. I am also a volunteer at many organizations including the Sac Zoo, P.R.O.J. E.C.T Ride, and Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Recuse. When I am visiting southern California, I also volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. I really love working with and taking care of animals in general.
What is included when I look after your pet or pets:
~Feed, provide fresh water (daily or if I see a dirty bowl it's going to get cleaned no if ands or buts)
~Playtime/exercise (10-15 minutes or add $2.00 for a 20-30 walk)
~Miscellaneous housekeeping, such as watering plants, bringing in the mail (if you have a jungle of plants add $2.00)
~Daily updates with pictures via my iPhone or email
Total for daily pet sitting: $ 25.00
(If you like we can also do monthly rates like a doggy day care where I can check on your dog during the day while you are at work)
I also offer daily dog walking:
~Walks are normally 20-30 mins it really depends on the dog, we have really hot days in the summer months here in Sacramento. So I like to keep the walks in the early morning or evening hours during the summer.
~ I also provide fresh water after the walk
~Daily updates with pictures via my iPhone or email if you are not at home
Total for daily dog walking: $10.00 (Your dog must have all of his or her shots and vaccinations. I will check before I even take the doggy out of their yard and will need a copy for proof. This is not personal it’s just to ensure that your doggy and I are safe)
I DON'T WALK OR PET SIT FOR AGGRESSIVE OR KNOWN AGRESSIVE BREADS OR DOGS. THE LAST THING I WANT TO DEAL WITH IS A DOG GETTING INTO A FIGHT OR HURTING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. THIS IS FOR SAFETY REASONS.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions; I look forward to meeting and taking care of your furry loved ones!
