Hi,I'm Paula. Thank you for looking at my profile. I'm an experienced sitter who will treat your dog and other pets like a family member when you are away. Your fur babies will receive lots of petting, playing and walking during my visits. Pictures of your dog will be posted for you or sent via text message by request. I can provide you updates from time to time while you are away from home as well. Special requests or additional services will be considered and may have an additional charge such as staying overnight at your home, putting out trash cans, cleaning, poop patrolling your yard, and watering plants or grass. **Please complete the instructions and vet information when you book the sitting service for optimal communication**. If you have any questions, please let me know.
I provide dog sitting services in Austin limited to the following areas: North (up to 183/Mopac), Central, West (as far as Scenic Dr), East (as far as Ed Bluestein), South (between Lamar & Mopac, serving Barton Hills) and all of Downtown.
I can provide pet care for cats, reptiles, frogs, fish, small mammals, birds and pet rocks. I love exotics too!! I will provide a discount for multiple pets for my travel service so please let me know up front how many and what type of pets you have.
I have experience with several types of dogs (large and small, old and young) and volunteer at the Austin Animal Center. I am comfortable coming to your home. Please let me know what to expect with your dog's behavior upon greeting me. If your dog has any history of aggression with new people, I'd like to come over to meet you and your dog before your trip. Leave plenty of food, treats, chew toys, collar, leash and any medication or other items that we will need for your dog. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!! I can also look after snakes, lizards, fish tanks, cats,birds, small mammals, and just about any other pet you might have. A discount will apply for multiple pets.
Dogs have been a part of my life since I was a child. I worked at a vet office in high school where I fell in love with dogs even further. I now volunteer at the Austin Animal Center.
Any breeds, types, and sizes of dogs are included as long as they are usually friendly with other dogs and people. Special needs dogs will be considered and special care can be provided on a case by case scenario. I will take special care with dogs who have a difficult time walking on a leash and those who are anxious. If your dog has any history of aggression, please let me know and we will schedule a time to meet prior to your trip.
