I am a graduate of the University of Washington, recently evacuated from Peace Corps service in Guinea. I would love to get a dog of my own but I don't know where I will be next year. I would love to watch your dog while you are gone.
About this sitter:
I recently graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Biology. I and have moved back to Eugene after having been evacuated from the Peace Corps in Guinea. I am waiting to see if I will be able to return to service but in the mean time I am doing some work in lab at the U of O but I have a lot of time to spend with your pets. I would love to get a dog of my own as soon as I get settled when I get back but in the meantime I would love to watch your dog(s) while you are gone. I also love animals of any shape and size and am happy to take care of cats, horses, pocket pets, or anyone else in your household. I have now been sitting with Rover for over a year and have loved all of the great dogs and people that I have met.
I grew up volunteering at Greenhill Humane society as well as watching the pets of my friends and family. More recently I have been working at a vet clinic and spent several summers on a ranch taking care of a variety of animals of all sizes including horses, goats and cattle. I also had a dog of my own while in Guinea, unfortunately due to the circumstances of my leaving I wasn't able to bring her home with me.
Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog lover my whole life. I have dog and house sat for many family friends and neighbors. I also spent several years volunteering at Greenhill Humane Society in Eugene, Oregon. In college I worked with a vet clinic in Seattle and was in charge of the dogs who there for boarding. I had my own dog during Peace Corps service in Guinea but unfortunately I had to leave her there when we were evacuated.

Yes, I am comfortable administering medication. I have experience working at a vet clinic and have a lot of experience giving all sorts of medications.
I would like to know about any habitats the dog has, as well as any special needs the dog has. I typically prefer medium to large breeds but would be willing to work with any dog.

Depending on the days needed I could spend large amounts of time with the dogs, including nights, and a long run.
