Dogs, cats, horses, etc.

I'm Abby, and I've had a passion for animals ever since I can remember. I have house-sat and pet-sat for several years, caring for dogs, cats, horses, chickens, birds, fish, gardens, etc. I have experience working with all sorts of animals and breeds. At the moment, I am working part-time at an equestrian therapeutic riding center in Carson Valley. My schedule revolves around that, but I can be somewhat flexible for your pets' needs. I ...

What Abby would like to know about your dog

It would be appreciated if you could give some information about your animal(s) and provide a meet-and-greet before I work with them. This will help me to be introduced so they know they can trust me, and so that I can know both their and your preferences for their care. Some things I may ask you include:
Feeding schedule (free feed or set times, wet or canned, and how much)
Food limitations/ allergies
Activity level
Sleep schedule and daily routine
Bathroom schedule and location
Behavior when alone
Type of leash or harness
Social behavior (with other dogs, with strangers, children, etc...)
Training methods (treats, words or hand gestures used for sit, heel, come, stay, etc...)
Fears (thunderstorms, fireworks, water, car rides, etc...)
Favorite toys or games
Crate training
Spayed/neutered
Any injuries or past medical history that would prevent extended exercise
Vehicle etiquette
Health issues, medications
Emergency vet, number and location

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Abby watches your pet

Keep in mind that I may bring my dog, Dexter, with me when I house sit, pay your pets a visit, or walk your dogs. For walks and outings, there are several parks in Carson City if your dog is the social type. We can also just roam your neighborhood. And if your dog is the hearty mountain type, we could enjoy a nice hike at Kings Canyon or Silver Saddle Ranch. If your dog is fond of water, I'm even willing to go to Spooner Lake, Washoe Lake, or the Carson River. I do add a small fee for gas if you request an outing that requires me to transport your dog.
