Our pets are our family. We love them and care for them as we would our children. That's why it's so important to have someone who takes care of them like family. I was raised with German Shepherds, who I helped train as service dogs. I have spent time with CCI and volunteered as a puppy raiser and trainer with their Golden Retrievers. My family currently has a beautiful Golden Retriever girl. If you want someone who knows how to take care of your family member, you found the right person.
If you have a cat or other exotic animal that needs special care let me know...

Why I love dog sitting
I have been an animal lover all my life. My childhood was full of every kid of creature, dogs, cats, birds, llamas, ferrets, mini goats. When your best friends dad is a veterinarian you meet many interesting characters. As an adult I have had a chinchilla, German Shepherd, and my current love a golden retriever. I have experience with service dogs, in training, puppy sitting, and socializing. Whether the dog is 3lbs or 125lbs I love them all.
My experience administering medication
I have administered medication to sick pets in the past. I have had to mix special food and made sure that they were getting the proper amount prescribed by the veterinarian.
Personality is important, is your furry friend outgoing, friendly, shy, aggressive, protective? Is she/he a barker, nipper, licker, jumper, digger? Do they have any allergies? Favorite toy, activity, special place to sleep?
Time I'll spend with your dog
Each individual has different needs. However, each day we would go for a walk, have play and cuddle time, along with food and potty breaks. If you already have a feeding schedule set up I will try to keep that schedule.
