As a Reiki practitioner with shelter, grooming, kennel, dog day care, animal hospital, and cattery experience, it is my priority to ensure that your furry family members and home will be held in the utmost love and safety while you are away.
I began offering extended stay pet sitting in 2011 while living on Long Island, NY, where my discriminating clients ranged from the Hamptons to Sands Point. When your animals are in my charge, you can be sure that they are receiving not only LOVE, but professional and expert care.
I also offer in-home grooming and bathing, poop scooping, pet taxi services, and domestic services during my stay with your animals, so please inquire regarding needs and options.

Why I love dog sitting
I've been a dog lover my entire life - I was always the one to walk up to any and every dog on the street as a child! I naturally gravitated toward working with dogs. I have worked in medical, shelter, grooming, and care taking environments and lived in multi-dog households. I have also spent considerable time volunteering as a walker and handler/trainer for local animal shelters.
My experience administering medication
Yes, I am comfortable and experienced in administering oral and injected medications (such as insulin for diabetic animals).
Temperament, health issues (medications, age, habits), and your dog's standard schedule. I am comfortable with all breeds toy to giant, including "bully breeds" - I <3 Pits!
Time I'll spend with your dog
I will be with your dog for hours each day during the course of walks, feeding time, play, and relax/cuddle time. This time will be spaced throughout the day - morning, day, and evening.
Extra house-sitting services
Yes - my service includes minor plant maintenance and mail service if requested.
