Hi! I'm Nicole. I moved to SF a little over a year ago for career change and am looking for some supplemental income.
I grew up with dogs my whole life, and once I moved here, I realized how much I missed having a one! I can't afford one at the moment, so I began volunteering at Northern California Family Dog Rescue. Volunteering is great but I realized money would also be good ;)
I'd like to help you and your dog out. My job is flexible and I have a car! I'm punctual, reliable, and always have my phone on me. I can provide references (from the dog shelter), or just seeing me interact with your dog, you'll know we'll have a great, safe, fun time.
I grew up with dogs in the house, usually 2 at a time. Jenny, Shiva, and Zoey were all rescue dogs that I trained and grew to love like members of my family.
I've lived all over the country and have either resided with dogs or volunteered at local shelters. They calm me down and make me happy, and I'd like to think I make them happy too :)
I prefer mixed breeds, though I have experience in caring for pedigrees. I would like to know the dog's daily routine, how they interact with other dogs and children, any allergies or strange fears (scattering leaves, backfires from cars, etc.).
Yes, I've worked in hospitals with (human) patients and am comfortable giving shots and pills.
However much the dog needs. We can work it out!
