Experienced Animal Loving Sitter
My name is Madison, and I would love to help you with your dog sitting needs. I am an animal lover and have 1 dog, Sophie, and 2 cats, Daniel and Tigerlily.
I have previous experience dog sitting in clients' homes, and I find that it is less stressful for the dog(s) to remain in their home environment during sitting hours.
I love to be active, and have experience playing with and walking ...
What Madison would like to know about your dog
I have dog-sat for small and large dogs with very different needs, preferences and dispositions, but I have to say that I have never met a dog that I did not like and get along with! Sure, some dogs, especially some resuces, will be wary or shy at first. I experienced this myself when I adopted my dog, Sophie, from Austin Pets Alive! in 2009. But I have found that gently allowing them to get to know you and learn that you are not a threat but a source of fun is highly rewarding. I believe that dogs have needs and wants just as humans do, and that they should be addressed kindly and with compassion. I apply this to my sitting by ensuring that the dog(s) have frequent play time, outside time, off-leash outside time, swimming opportunities, prompt and consistent feeding times, and a big supply of clean water for the Texas heat.
