Ever since I was little I have been in love with animals and working and care for them comes naturally. When I was in middle school and high school I started to pet sit for family and friends. Some of the animals I took care of were small dogs( pomeranians, maltese, yorkies), medium dogs( golden retrievers, labradors, pitbulls, boxers), reptiles( turtles, anoles, bearded dragon, cornsnake), birds( parakeets), fish( saltwater and freshwater), and small mammals( guinea pigs and hamsters). I love working with animals and believe they are like family members. Since they are like family members they needed proper care and attention when their own family can not be there for them. I do not mind whatever has to be done to make the owner and pet happy( playing, walking , feeding, poop clean up, singing to the pet, daily updates, etc). Overall I posses the skills to help make you pet sitting experience great!
I have been a dog lover ever since I was a little girl. I remember the first puppy we got when I was four, my mom was always scared it would "Bandit" would run me over, but I always wanted to play with her and feed her. Eventually "Bandit" was given away, because we had to move to a smaller place. then in High school I started to pet sit my neighbors animals, mostly dogs. I though why not continue that in college, and that is what I am doing now. I love dogs and I love of cuddly and energetic they are.
I have taken car of many types of dogs when I started pet sitting usually small to large dogs. Giant dogs are a little to big for me, since I am small. I usually ask how old they are, age determines usually the activity the dog is into. Also do they have special food types or medication? I also ask what is their favorite toy and do they go on walks or just play outside. If they like +walks, do they interact well with other dogs outside? I like all breeds, they have certain quirks to each type of personality of that dog.
yes, whatever is needed or wanted. I usually do anything that the owner asks me to do, take-in packages or take trash to the corner. if it is reasonable, i will do it.
It depends on how long you would like me to stay. I can stay there for an hour or for overnight. I could also be there for extended periods of time, if your pup suffers from separation anxiety.
