I grew up in rural montana with cats, dogs, horses, a guinea pig, and a cow. I'm a senior at the University of Washington. Since I don't have my pets in Seattle, I would love to spend my free time playing with pets!
Why I love dog sitting
I have grown up with dogs my entire life. My first dog was a great dane mix that weighed about 130 pounds. When she was about 1 year old my family got a second dog. Both our dogs lived until they were about 15 years old. Now we have three dogs at home in Montana. Two are mixed large breed dogs that we got from the pound. The third is a newfoundland and about 130 pounds. I am very comfortable with large breed dogs. My aunt, a labradoodle breeder, currently has a mini labradoodle as a pet (she is in the photo with me). I love cuddling with her and watching her play with my aunts' two black german shepherds.
My experience administering medication
Yes I am comfortable administering medication. My first dog, in her later years, had very bad arthritis and hip dysplasia which she took medication for. Living in rural montana we often gave our dogs, horses, and cats some of their vaccinations. I am wilderness emt certified, therefore I comfortable in urgent situations and have experience administering medications.
I don't have any breed preferences, I love all types of dogs. I would like to know if the dog has any special needs. Also I think it is important to know a dogs habits. Maintaining a schedule that the dog is used to is helpful for keeping them comfortable and happy. I love playing with dogs so I would also like to know their favorite activities and toys.
Time I'll spend with your dog
As a University of Washington student I am in classes during the day. I would like to spend time after school playing with them for a couple hours in addition to feedings and just relaxing with them each day.
Extra house-sitting services
Yes, I am willing to do additional tasks.
