Student by day, animal lover always
I am a recent graduate of Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in Animal Sciences with the hopes of attending veterinary medicine school next fall. My love for animals started when I was 12 years old when I trained a dog to be therapy dog certified to take onto hospitals.

What Courtney would like to know about your dog
Before pet sitting, I would like the owner to provide me with specific details about their animals' temperaments: are they normally really active, normally really lazy, hesitant around new people, love everyone that they meet, etc. Besides the temperament, I will ask questions about the animals favorite activities, toys, and treats, that way I can be prepared with ideas on how to keep the animals entertained. Finally, I will ask the owner specific questions regarding the health of the animal. It is crucial as a pet sitter that I am aware of all past and current medical conditions in the animals' history, whether that is allergies, diseases, conditions, etc. This way I can be prepared if the unexpected happens and know how to handle the situation if it does arise. I have no breed preferences, from a 4 pound chihuahua to a 183 pound cane corso I have experience with both small and large breeds. Lastly, I will ask you if you have any specific things that you would like me to achieve while pet sitting. Those things might include: giving your dog a bath, cleaning out their ears, working on leash walking manners, working on commands, etc. I will be more than happy to work on topics like those with your animals while you are away, not only would it benefit the animals, but it would also give me the chance to form a stronger bond with your pets!
