I am a professional pet sitter and trainer. I am insured and have a business license. I believe that every dog is an individual and should receive individual care.
Your dog will be treated like my pet, kept on their regular routines with little interruption in their life. Your dog will be happy and balanced during your time away and happy to see you return!
I grew up on a farm with dogs and a variety of animals, we raised working dogs. My first job was caring for show dogs and horses. I have worked at veterinary clinics, with rescue dogs and horses, apprenticing with trainers, and have been pet sitting for 5 years.
I have always been a dog lover, growing up on a farm raising working dogs I have never been without dogs in my life.
I would like to know the level of training and socialization they have had as well as any behavioral issues.
I have no preferences or issues with breed or size of dog.
Yes, having worked in veterinary clinics and having had older, sick dogs myself I comfortable with a wide range of medications, dosages, and administration methods.
Your home will be taken care of as if you were still there. Your home is treated wi respect and continues to function completely. I don't do any heavy cleaning or yard work, but anything else is do-able.
Depends on your dogs needs. If your dog is used to time alone, they will receive time alone, if they are used to a lot of time with people at home, then more time in the home will be arranged. As a professional pet sitter and trainer I do have appointments, but my schedule is more flexible.
