Traveling Dog Sitting

Within a few hours Sitter responds within a few hours
Description:

I work part-time so having time for your pets is no big deal!
I love animals around as they bring me great joy. I grew up with dogs and cats my entire life and am sad that as of now affording one is not an option. Instead, taking care of other pets is the next best thing and I will do so happily.
My apartment is two-bedroom (approx 600 sq ft) and is in a pet-friendly building in a quiet neighborhood. I live within walking distance to a park on the water, so getting out to play is super easy. I am willing to travel to all boroughs to gather your furry friends.

About Jessica C.:

Price to watch your small animal is $30 per night. If it is for a day only, that is $30 as well.
For medium dogs, the price is $40. I define medium as anything in the 30s-40s pound range.

For pickups after mid-afternoon a day charge will be added.

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

I have been a dog lover for the entire 26 years of my life, having grown up with them since I was a baby. I had a whole range of dogs, from beagles, mini schnauzers, lab mixes, and spaniels.

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

I have no breed preferences. Prior to dog sitting, I would like to know how social the dog is - kids often like running up to dogs! As do other dogs. Plus, please inform me of any special needs and/or care, or if I need to take steps to make my home more pet-friendly in special cases. And please make sure your dog is up to date on shots and flea/tick medications.

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

I do not, however I am a few minutes away from a few vet clinics, and am not above paying for a taxi!

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Yes, provided the owner gives detailed instructions.

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

My part-time work is only a few hours on any given day, leaving the rest of my day to care for your pet. On a rare occasion I must be away all day, and will not accept pets on those days. Leaving your pet alone all day is torture! I would never do that.

Where will my dog sleep?

Your dog will sleep on a bed if one is provided. If not, I have cushions, sheets, and pillows!

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

Around the blocks surrounding my building. I also live near the East River, and there are a couple large parks dotted along it I can reach easily.

Bailey had a great time staying with Jessica for the weekend. Jessica sent us pictures and updates each day. Thanks Jess!

My husband and I were very impressed and pleased with the care that Jessica gave our dog Sriracha during her stay. When meeting Jessica she had lots of wonderful questions regarding Sriracha's habits, our preferences and generalities that come up with dog-sitting. While we were away she sent us photo's and updates on how our little girl was doing. I would absolutely leave Sriracha with her again and recommend her to any dog owner looking for a reliable, fun and attentive dog-sitter. (Collapse)

Jessica was great with Cobain, and sent us photo updates each day! You could tell he was happy, and when we dropped him off he was instantly comfortable with her.

Jessica was really good and thoughtful with our yellow lab when she take care of him over Labor Weekend. They both seemed to really enjoy each others company..which we appreciated!

Jessica watched my dog Susie for 5 days in her home in Astoria, and it all went well and I'd use her again. She was good about communicating in advance of the stay, and was taking pictures and sending texts all the while we were gone. My dog came home very happy and all was good!

Testimonials

Karen B. July 2
Jessie was super nice! Not many people would see my dog and be so willing to watch him considering his size and very energetic, especially last minute. But she was totally cool about it. She kept me updated throughout my weekend away and texted me pics of him while we were gone. My dog is a hand full but when I went to pick him up, he looked well and happy. You can tell she's really a dog lover and I would have no problem contacting her again if I end up needing a dog sitter again! :) (Collapse)

Jessica was great with our dog, Cobain. He warmed up to her right away and Jessica sent us photo updates while we were gone! So glad we found her!
