I am a recent college graduate and animal lover who has extensive experience with dogs of all breeds and sizes - from Pomeranian to Pitbull to French Mastiff and everywhere in between! I'm also very experienced with special needs dogs and have no problem with administering medicines (oral/topical/etc).
I have had many dogs in my lifetime, most of them are rescues/ high needs so there is no dog I can't handle!
I am also an avid animal rescue volunteer and have participated in numerous programs. I
I have helped to foster numerous special needs dogs that were successfully adopted after rehabilitation.
Lost of experience administering medicine of all sorts as well as helping older dogs.
Most importantly, I am highly experienced with dogs of all different personalities, I can bond with even the most finicky of dogs. Even dogs with intense anxiety are not a problem.
I have been around dogs since I was a baby! I can't imagine my life without a dog by my side. As a child I used to sleep with my dog in his dog bed (my parents quickly put a stop to that though). Most of the dogs I've had have been rescues that need extra care in order to adjust and become comfortable with their surroundings. Through my experiences with dogs I have learned how to care for and treat a living creature which is truly invaluable to me.
I love all dogs and have owned quite a range of breeds in my lifetime. Before sitting a dog I like to know the dog's personality and if it has any special needs that I should pay extra attention to.
I take public transportation everywhere but in case of an emergency I have friends and family that are more than willing to help out.
Yes! I currently have a pitbull that has had multiple surgeries that requires medicine daily. I give him a total of 5 pills a day and also administer ointment for a a reoccurring ear infection of his (he is very high needs).
Of course, I am more than willing to tidy up and do anything to keep the house in order.
As much time as needed, I am very flexible! I especially enjoy walking dogs and taking them to nearby parks if the dog is friendly and physically able. I'm also more than content to simply sit with a dog if it is old or has separation anxiety.
