I have been petsitting for 7 years, and have been around pets all of my life. I am detail oriented, very serious about treating your pet as a member of your family (which it is). My services include daily walks (if the pet is used to that), feeding, watering, oral medications, playing, and sometimes just a belly rub will do! Household services include trash, opening and closing blinds, watering plants, lights on and off, and in general making the house looked lived in while you are away. I require a meet and greet with your animal before the sitting begins, if this is first time that I have taken care of them. Rate includes 2 visits per day, each additional visit is 5.00 each.
I am 42 years old, married, have 3 kids and 1 dog. I love physical fitness, love my family, and I love what I do!
My family has had dogs all my life. When I was in college I rescued a siberian huskey, found it a home. When I was older, I rescued a lab/cocker spaniel and brought it in. He was the love of my life, died of cancer at the young age of 10. I currently have an adopted dog, Cassie, who is a lab/terrier mix. She is 10 years old.
Are there any quirks when the family is gone? I have had dogs rip up their beds, hide in the bathtub during 4th of July fireworks. Are the dogs aggressive on walks, and if so how do you handle it? Bathroom patterns are also very helpful. I do not have any breed preference. I have cared for Golden Retrievers, Terriers, Maltese, Poodles, Shih-tzus, Bichon, Shar Pei.
Yes, I do have reliable transportation.
30 minutes per visit, number of visits depends on you and your pet.
