Hello! My name is Jessica. I have been pet sitting for the past 5 years and would LOVE to assist you in your pet sitting needs. I have animals myself and don't treat them any less than how I want to be treated. I have always been around animals and have a huge love for them. I want to go to school to be a Humane Officer so that I can prosecute the people who mis-treat them. Animals have helped me a lot growing up when I had to deal with hard times and I feel this is my time to give back. I want to be that person who you can count on to walk them, feed them, play with them, groom them, and make sure they are okay while your away on vacation. I live locally and do not mind traveling. My goal is not only to make the animal happy but the owner as well. Animals are my life and I want your's to be part of mine!
I think that some things that qualify me for a good pet sitter would be.. I have volunteered at the SPCA of Tampa Bay, I have animals of my own and don't treat them any less than I want to be treated. I have grown up around animals and plan to pursue my goal in being a Humane Officer. When I am pet sitting, the animal comes first. I always make sure that the owner and animal are happy at all times.
I have been a dog lover for my whole life. I grew up with cats and the neighbors have had dogs. When I turned 16 my grandmother finally let me get my own dog and I would not trade her for the world. She is better than most of the friends I have and is the most loyal girl i've ever met. Since her, I have gotten a puppy and dog sit the neighbor's dogs. They are definitely one of my weaknesses.
I would like to know their schedule. Every animal if it is mine or yours is on a daily routine. If it's walking, eating, sleeping, playing, watching tv, what ever it is they have one. I would want to know what their day consists of. What food they eat and what they do and don't like. If they have any aggression issues or if they are the type you can take to the dog park. As far as breed preferences, I don't mind sitting ANY dog. Small, big, medium, large. Whatever you have I will sit.
Yes. I have a reliable transportation in the event of an emergency. I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza that if need be I can transport your animal the the vet without a problem.
I am very comfortable administering medicine. My dog that I have has to take medicine for her stomach before every meal or she has digestion issues.
I would not mind at all to do additional tasks while you are away. Errands, laundry, cleaning, watering plants, bringing in mail, or whatever else you may have that you want done, I don't mind doing.
I believe each dog is different as far as spending time with them. If you would like me to spend 5 minutes, that's fine. If you would like me to spend 4 hours, that's fine. I am here to suit YOU and your dog. You tell me what you would like and I will not let you down.
