About Jen T.:

Traveling can be a stressful experience for both owners and pets, so my goal is to make petcare one less thing to worry about!

Regarding my petsitting philosophy, I think dogs are pack animals and social creatures, so that's how things are run during a petsit. It's common to watch dogs of differing ages and/or sizes at the same time. A stay could be described as a small scale dog daycare with walks/hikes/fieldtrips and an overnight attendant.

About this sitter:
I'm a physician that recently left the medical field and am caring for people's fur babies full-time while contemplating what I want to be when I grow up. I have almost a decade of experience with dog rescue, primarily with Doberman Pinschers and small breed dogs (toy fox and rat terriers, italian greyhounds, miniature pinschers and chinese cresteds). I've cared for and fostered dogs of all ages from newborn puppies to senior dogs, 2 lbs to 100 lbs, some from puppy mills or with anxiety, medical or other issues. I also have experience with obedience and behavioral dog training, having fostered and owned a number of rescued Doberman Pinschers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

**I don't anticipate having availability for boarding new clients over the Thanksgiving and Xmas/NewYears holidays. I may be able to accommodate drop-in visits in the above mentioned areas.

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

I've been a dog owner for almost 10 years and had fish, cats and small animals growing up.

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

The only potential dealbreaker may be if a visiting dog is dog aggressive or had a kill-the-cat level prey drive. My definition of dog aggressive is an altercation that results breaking the skin and sending another animal (or person) to the emergency room. I am able to handle reactive or anxious dogs and their usual doggie communication/body language. Otherwise, it's helpful to know if your dog has any other issues or quirks so I can try to prevent or avoid those situations if possible.

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

Yes

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes. I've cared for dogs with conditions including diabetes, allergies, post surgical, paralysis, terminal illness, etc. There's no extra charge for related care as I realize this is one of the reasons owners may choose to book with rover.com rather than sending their pups to a boarding facility.

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

I am currently petsitting fulltime; the amount of time spent with each dog depends on the schedule and the dog's needs. Some dogs are never or rarely alone during a stay.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

There is a fenced 30' x 5' patio which can be used for quick relief, but walks are still the preferred way to get business done!

Where will my dog sleep?

Crated, run of the house (which usually means couch or dog bed in the living room or in the bedroom), or in bed, whichever he/she and/or the owner prefers.

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

I have housesits and dog walks in various parts of Seattle so your dog is welcome to ride along! Most commonly served areas include downtown, capitol hill, belltown and lower queen anne.

Jen T.'s Experience:

The rate for pet/housesitting applies within a 1 mile radius of my address (98101) with a $1/day/mile rate increase for locations further away (gas/bus money). Each additional dog is an extra $10 per day. Home sitting includes at least 3 daily visits with no time limit on the visits, we get done what needs to be done and will spend as much time as possible with them. I will sometimes bring a (friendly, housetrained) visiting dog with me to housesits so let me know if your dog is territorial or if you would prefer not to have a visiting dog in your house. Also please specify in your request if you're looking for someone to make home visits or if you'd like for someone to stay over. Thanks!

Jen watched my excitable pup Max and my escape artist cat Dexter for the weekend when I was out of town, and was fabulous! She is super reliable, responsive and professional. I hope I can convince her to help us again, and be a new member of team DexMax!

Rocky always has fun at Jen's house. The pickup and dropoff options are always convenient. Jen is always the first sitter I look to when I need to find Rocky a place to crash.
