Traveling Dog Sitting

Description:

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 Jen T.:

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.

**currently booking very few new clients but there are plenty of great rover sitters available!

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!

(e.g., water plants, bring in the mail)?

Jen is my go to! Oscar is once again healthy, happy, and tired (a good thing!) pup after staying with Jen. I really appreciate the pick-up and drop-off at my apartment.

This was our second stay with Jen and it went so well that I just booked our third. I love that Jen is willing to pick up and drop off from my home - I think this arrangement keeps my dog calm and relaxed during the transition. My 85lb Lab and I highly recommend Jen!

Jen has been looking after my babies for about 15 months now. She takes such good care of the four of them. We went away for our wedding for two weeks and everyone was asking us who was taking care of the pets - I was able to smile and tell everyone that their minder Jen had them and they wouldn't even be missing us!
