Hi there, y'all! I am a 25-year-old native Austinite, UT grad student (getting my Masters in Social Work), and Segway tour guide who would love to care for your dog!
Having been a dog person my whole life, I relish any and every opportunity to be around dogs. Since I can't commit to one of my own just yet, I am content to be the "favorite aunt" to my friends' pups and would be happy to be the same to yours!
Whether your dog is a bundle of puppy energy with an insatiable desire to play or the definition of a "lap dog," whether big or small, independent or affectionate, whatever your dog's style and preferences, I'll work hard to make him/her feel comfortable, happy, and cared for in your absence.
Grew up with family dogs--Dalmatian, Brittany Spaniel, Shetland Sheepdog, & German Shepherd.
Frequently walk and play with friends' dogs.
I am responsible, adaptable, able to think on my feet, and committed to great service.
I have been a dog lover all my life. I grew up with dogs and can't wait until I have one of my very own!
Before sitting a dog, I would like to know about any special needs or preferences regarding allergies, medication, food, toys, walks, etc. I'd also like to know about any house rules such as whether the dog is allowed on the furniture, upstairs in the home, etc. And, of course, any information you wish to pass on to me that will make you more comfortable while you're away!
Yes, I have my own car with plenty of space for one or multiple dogs of any size. I also have a current driver's license, registration, and insurance.
Yes, as long as I am given thorough instruction in the administration of the medication such as method, frequency, etc.
Absolutely! If you would like, I'd be happy to take care of small household tasks such as bringing in the mail or the paper. Just let me know what you'd like done!
One of the best features of my job as a tour guide is that my work schedule is flexible and often leaves gaps of time open during the day and the evening. Between tours I can stop by to visit your dog, let them out if needed, feed them, and have some time to play and bond before we spend the evening together. I would also be very grateful to have your input on how much time you would like me to spend with your dog so that I can make both of you as comfortable as possible while you're away.
