“I travel a lot and I have a dog named Gumbo. Gumbo is a very large pitbull, but despite his size and breed, he is very sweet. I don't like leaving him alone because he's old and he needs to take medicine every few hours. I met Jordan one day at Walmart and he offered to take care of Gumbo on my next outing. Although, skeptical I gave him a chance. I was going to be gone for 3 days. Jordan got permission to take Gumbo out of my house and to his. He gave me constant updates of everything that was going on around the clock which I appreciated. What really blew my mind is when he showed me a picture of Gumbo at the dog park playing with the other smaller dogs. I was always afraid of taking Gumbo there due to the stigmatized view of pits. But, Gumbo had an amazing time and I feel confident taking him there now because of Jordan”

About: When it comes to dog sitting, my experience and passion for dogs set me apart from other sitters. While many sitters may have experience caring for dogs, I bring a unique perspective as someone who has grown up with dogs and actively watched dogs before. My upbringing with dogs has instilled in me a deep understanding of their needs, behaviors, and the importance of providing them with love, care, and attention. Through my previous dog-sitting experiences, I have gained valuable insights into handling different breeds, temperaments, and specific requirements that dogs may have. This has allowed me to develop effective strategies for ensuring their well-being and providing a comfortable environment. Moreover, my passion for dogs drives me to go the extra mile in providing exceptional care. I genuinely enjoy spending time with dogs, engaging in various activities that keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Whether it's playing fetch, going on long walks, or simply providing cuddles and affection, I strive to create a positive and fulfilling experience for the dogs under my care. Additionally, I understand the importance of clear communication with pet owners. I prioritize keeping them informed about their dog's well-being, daily activities, and any notable behavior or health changes. This open line of communication helps establish trust and reassures owners that their beloved pets are in good hands. Overall, my combination of experience, love for dogs, and dedication to providing exceptional care sets me apart as a dog sitter. I am committed to ensuring the happiness and safety of the dogs I care for, making me an ideal choice for anyone seeking a reliable and compassionate pet sitter Pet care is a responsibility that I take seriously, and I understand the importance of providing consistent and reliable care for your furry companions. During weekdays, my availability for pet care typically begins after 3pm. Prior to scheduling any services, we can discuss your specific needs and requirements to ensure that we find a suitable arrangement for both you and your pets. However, when it comes to house sitting, I am more flexible. If you require my services for house sitting, we can discuss the details in advance and come up with a tailored plan that accommodates your schedule. House sitting allows me to provide round-the-clock care for your pets, ensuring their comfort and well-being in the familiar surroundings of their own home. On the weekends, my availability is more flexible due to my open schedule. I understand that weekends can be busy times for pet owners, and I am committed to being there for you and your pets whenever you need me. Whether it's a few hours of pet sitting or an entire day of care, I can adjust my schedule to accommodate your specific requirements. I believe in maintaining open communication and transparency with pet owners. By discussing your needs and availability in advance, we can work together to create a pet care plan that suits your schedule and ensures your pets receive the attention and care they deserve When caring for pets in an owner's home, there are several key aspects that I prioritize to ensure the well-being and happiness of the animals: safety, trust, environment, enrichment, and attention. First and foremost, safety is of utmost importance. I take great care to create a secure environment for the pets under my care. This includes being mindful of potential hazards in the home, such as toxic substances, loose wires, or open windows, and taking necessary precautions to eliminate or minimize any risks. I make sure to familiarize myself with emergency procedures and contact information provided by the owner, ensuring that I am prepared to handle any unexpected situations that may arise. Establishing trust with both the pets and their owners is crucial. I understand that pets may initially feel anxious or uneasy with a new person in their home. Therefore, I approach them with patience, respect, and a calm demeanor. I allow them to set the pace of our interaction, gradually building trust through gentle and positive reinforcement. Similarly, maintaining open and clear communication with the owners helps foster trust, as I provide regular updates on their pet's well-being, activities, and any notable changes or concerns. Creating a comfortable and stimulating environment is essential for the pets' overall happiness. I ensure that their basic needs are met, such as providing fresh food and water, maintaining cleanliness in their living areas, and following any specific dietary instructions. I pay attention to their preferred routines, whether it's specific feeding times, exercise routines, or playtime activities, to help them feel at ease. Additionally, I strive to maintain a calm and peaceful atmosphere in the home, minimizing any disruptions that may cause stress to the pets. Enrichment plays a vital role in keeping pets mentally and physically stimulated. I engage with the pets through interactive play sessions, puzzle toys, and activities that cater to their specific breed or species needs. Whether it's a game of fetch, hide-and-seek, or teaching them new tricks, I aim to provide a variety of enriching experiences that prevent boredom and promote their overall well-being. Lastly, I ensure that pets receive ample attention and affection. I understand that animals thrive on companionship and social interaction. I spend quality time with them, providing cuddles, petting, and grooming as needed. I adapt to their individual personalities and preferences, offering the attention and love they crave

“I have known Lynda for over 6 years. When we first started working togeather I was always happy to see her because of her positive outlook on things. After getting to know her better I found out that she always would talk about dogs and how much she like having one around. I was in the process of obtaining a family dog and went to her for advice on this matter. She commented that “you will know when the dog is right for your family” With this advice we selected a great dog and I am thankful for her advice. I would recommend Lynda for any and all care for your family pet.”

“Cindy was absolutely amazing! I was so uneasy after missing my meet and greet with the original scheduled sitter. But Cindy came and met my dogs and took the time to warm up to them in my absence. She’s really kind and sweet. I would definitely use her again. What a great service that allows the opportunity for dogs to stay at home in an environment where they feel comfortable or go out and enjoy something new! Thank you so much ?”
