Cori was prompt, communicative, and consistent throughout our dog's stay with her. We are very confident in her as a house and dogsitter and would recommend her highly!

Cori kept me connected to my dog. That's important. She also reinforced a few strategies that I've been working on re boundaries and limits. My home was in as-good-as/ if-not-better condition than when I left. That is helpful.

Ex-Vet Asst Caring for Your Pets

I am a prior vet assistant with a background in dog training and animal care. I work part-time as a Legal Assistant in Milwaukie, OR three days a week.

*General Service Areas for In-Your Home Pet Sits: NE/N/SE areas of Pdx and Milwaukie. Please contact me to see if I service your area as I sometimes will accommodate and service other areas. Must be close to public transportation.

*PLEASE READ THROUGH MY PROFILE ...

What Cori would like to know about your dog

*ONLY FRIENDLY, WELL SOCIALIZED DOGS PLEASE! (Ex: Prior approval and success at any doggie daycare, frequents dog parks, etc. Your dog MUST be comfortable and suited to a pack environment for the $35 rate. ~Exception: If you plan on boarding your dog alone at an additional rate.
________________________
************************

*I NEED 24 HRS NOTICE BEFORE DOG SITTING WHEN YOU RESERVE AN APPT SO I CAN GET BACK TO YOU IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME & COMPLETE A MEET & GREET. HOWEVER, if I am able to respond on such short notice it is likely I would need a ride to your home and possibly back from the visit. If there are any errands that need to be run I charge a nominal fee per errand.

I would like to know the dog's temperament. Any aggression issues? Does he / she gets along with other dogs, children, etc. What not to do (don't kiss dog's face or will nip, etc) Is the dog skittish? What is the dog's usual routine with you? Does he / she have any favorite toys or blanket? Favorite games? Medical issues? Special diet? Any on going training problems? What commands are difficult? Anxiety issues?

I love caring for all types of dogs, small and large. My favorite are the bully breeds, but there are so much more that I love so very much. It's difficult to pick one breed, but it would have to be the American Pit Bull because I have a huge heart for them since the first dog I owned was a pitty. It breaks my heart to know that there are so many of this breed at the pound because people tend to get this breed of dog and know little about caring for them and the responsibilities of owning such a breed.

*I also love cats, so if you need someone to watch your kitty, please let me know.

When Cori watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I would take him / her for walks around my neighborhood. Please let me know if your dog has issues of chasing cars, people, etc. Any aggression towards other animals (cats, dogs, etc.)

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
On my bed with blankets and pillows unless they have their own bedding and possibly under the stairs if your dog prefers a cave like atmosphere then that can be arranged as well. Yes, I like to spoil them. Unless the dogs have a specific place to sleep. They should bring their own bed from home when possible to give them more places to rest.

Time I'll spend with your dog
100% when I am in your home or in mine.

The only exception to this is when I am attending church service. If your dog can't be left alone at all like in the case of moderate to severe *separation anxiety, please let me know in advance. I can take some time off to care for your dog with SA for extremely short stays only. Longer stays will need to be in the owners home.

Extra house-sitting services
Absolutely! Take out the garbage, recycle, get the mail, and water plants (I am not responsible for plants that may wilt or die in my care as I am not a gardener nor do I have a green thumb). We can discuss what you need when we meet.
