Traveling Dog Sitting

Description:

Nestled in an apartment in south Philly, our home would make a perfect stay for your dog(s). We have two friendly MinPins that love to play with new friends, regardless of their size. Because of their small size, however, we ask that your dog have the same qualities.

About Rich Y.:

I am a 26 year-old self-employed artist seeking ways to earn a little additional income.
I deal well with all sized dogs and easily make new "friends" if I'm walking my dogs in the park or being introduced to a friend's pet.
I've been a loving owner of dogs and other animals all my life. Currently, my house is run by 2 dogs and a cat that thinks she's a dog (2 miniature pinschers and a Maine Coon).

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

All my life. I grew up with our family dog, Max, an Irish Terrier. Since then, I've been asked by several friends to pet-sit while they're on vacation, and I've fallen in love with my partners two lovable Min Pins.

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

I'd like to hear any general information that could help me get to know your dog(s). Most importantly; if there are any medical needs/care your dog may need. A little info about your dogs personality and behavior is always helpful, too.

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

Yes, I have a car readily available at all times in case any emergencies should arrive where your dog may need emergency medical attention.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

yes. While I was in highschool, our family dog was diagnosed with diabetes, which required administering 2 shots a day. I was responsible for giving him his shots on a regular basis. In addition, I've had to coax my own dogs into taking medicine their vet prescribed without a problem.

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

I work from home, so the majority of my time will be spent in the company of your canine pal. I am very interactive with my two miniature pinschers (not given much of a choice), and enjoy spending time with my pooches.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

No backyard, but I live on a small side-street in South Philly. We have access to an enclosed parking lot, less than 150 ft. across the street (walls on 3 sides, gated entrance). This is where my 2 dogs love to go to play fetch, pee, and sniff around. The area is quite large, and there is very limited traffic on our street (i wouldn't let them off the leash however, as a safety precaution.)

Where will my dog sleep?

That depends on your preference. Some dog owners don't like their pooch sleeping on the bed/furniture. If this is your wish, I will abide by it. Otherwise, I'd imagine your dog would happily join us in bed.

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

As I mentioned, for quick walks, I use the parking lot across the street (with a small garden/grassy area in the back of the lot. I also live within 2 blocks of two large, grassy parks that my Pins love to play at (especially at night when the park is free for them to explore).

Rich Y.'s Experience:

A life-time of experience with animals of different sizes with different needs gives me the confidence I can keep your dog happy and safe.

Minnie

Age: 12 years, 11 mo. old
Weight: 12 lbs.
Breed: Miniature Pinscher

She may be an old lady, but I still bring out the puppy in her. She loves playing fetch with one of her balls, but her favorite game is "tub-ball"... We fill the tub with warm water and her favorite toys, which she will toss and splash til her heart's content. When she's had enough, she tosses each toy out one-by-one to dry off, then barks to let me know she's ready to dry off.

Rocco

Age: 6 years, 11 mo. old
Weight: 12 lbs.
Breed: Miniature Pinscher

Rescued when he was a scared little puppy, Rocco was found in a dumpster as the only canine amongst a couple dozen cats.
He's always gotta be at your side, or on top of you, and shows all the affection in the world.

Rich had no problem bonding with both of my dogs, and seems to draw the attention of friend's pets whenever he's around. You can tell he loves interacting with them, especially when he talks to them... and surprisingly, they seem to understand.
