I'm a working college student looking to earn a little extra cash doing what I love -- spending time with animals! When I leave my dog in the care of someone else, it is important to me that I know my petsitter is treating my dog as well as I would treat her myself. That's why I treat every client's dog as well as my own. I am patient with animals and I take the time to ease their stress when their owners are out of town or working long hours. Let me be a part of your pet's life and yours!
I have a lot of experience working with dogs including sitting, training, and grooming. I have worked at a doggie daycare, a grooming salon, and pet hospitals. I also own a dog of my own and in my studies at college, I major in pre-veterinary medicine. All of my work and most of my play in centered around dogs and other animals!
I've always grown up with dogs but it was when I first had a puppy of my very own about 3 years ago that I understood how strong the bond between a human and its pet can be.
I love all dogs, but I have always had an extra-soft spot for large dogs! It is important for me to know any health, agression, or other behavioral issues that a dog has before I spend time with it. This would not deter me from petsitting them, but it helps in earning their trust if I understand their struggles.
Yes, I have access to the use of a personal vehicle.
Yes, I have volunteered and worked at animal hospitals before. I am also a pre-veterinary medicine student in college.
Sure! Anything from laundry, dishes, or taking out trash is just fine. A clean home is not only important to the owner, but to the dog as well. It helps them feel comfortable without their humans around if their home is kept in a tidy, familiar condition.
I like to give dogs at least one hour playing outside and one hour receiving affection indoors. That sets a two hour minimum, but I prefer to be around the animals as often as possible. Even if I have work to do for school, I like to do it in the same room as the pets so they don't feel alone.
