Animal Lover Seeks Pups!

Hi, I'm Darlene! Ever since I was a little girl, I've felt a connection to animals. I value their loyalty, unconditional love and distinctive personalities. Two months ago I adopted my dog first dog, Moe. I'm really happy to say that since his adoption, his health has significantly improved. When I first met him, he had been diagnosed with Alopecia as a result of stress, allergies, chronic ear infections and was underweight. Now his fur ...

When dog-sitting, the three items I keep on my checklist are seeing that the dog/s is healthy, protected and happy. My first priority is ensuring that the dogs are hydrated, well-fed, exercised and given lots of attention. I think that play time is very important and depending on the dog's personality, I find games and activities that give them joy to make sure they're having the best time possible. Like people, it's not hard to see that animals feel the absence of their loved ones, so I make sure I'm attentive to them and their mood -- giving them the best care and most attention possible to ensure that their spirits stay up and the time apart from their family doesn't get them down. In terms of discipline, I base my discipline firstly off of the instruction given to me by owners. If no specific instruction is given, I come in with an expectation of good behavior and correct behavior accordingly. I most believe in speaking firmly and confidently to animals when their behavior needs correction. Regarding potential conflict with other dogs or any other animal, I will guide dogs away by leash. I think it's important to find a balance between being strong in your convictions/expectations with the dog while still being loving, properly caring for and respecting them.
