Alissa was super awesome! They responded almost instantly and came to take Nora (my dog) for a walk within an hour. Nora was super happy! Thank you Alissa!
Alissa was very accommodating and kind.
Alissa is probably our dogs' favorite sitter now. Jake has some knee issues and she went so far as to give him a massage to help his rear legs. And Gus immediately took to her with cuddling (not an easy feat with an unneutered male). She also took them on walks even while it was snowing. So we were impressed.
And we were so grateful that she showed up last-minute due to a work issue ...
Happy to help and give total care
Need to go away but don't want to uproot your loved furry creatures while you're gone? I grew up with animals and was constantly 'saving' as many as I could find. As I got older and moved to a city I was unable to have my own but have cared for other people's pets and it is so rewarding. If you need someone who cares about your animals well being as well as providing you ...
What Alissa would like to know about your dog
I like to know activity level and overall schedule to keep it as true to your dog's life as possible (ie what time are they fed, do they typically go out first thing in the morning, etc). Any details and of course any important details specific to your loved one that any stranger/new person should know (like food aggression or a toy they don't let anyone near) to be safe as well.
I have not taken a dog first aid/CPR course but I am human certified and I know where on a dog to give CPR - and I would be extremely vigilant and attentive to any animal in need and get them to a vet/emergency shelter ASAP. I ACT I do not panice.
