Osha was attentive to our dog's needs and was available to help us out in a last-minute situation. We got plenty of updates and pictures of our happy furball. We will definitely book with him again when needed.

Having Osha watch my two dogs in my house overnight worked out well. I had to book last-minute when my son was no longer able to and he fit me into his schedule. Communication was very good and he sent lots of pictures of the dogs while I was away. It definitely eased my mind knowing they were well cared for and that they could stay in their own home and not a boarding kennel ...

Osha is a wonderful pet sitter. He is kind and caring and did an overall wonderful job. He took time to play with the kitties and sent us some really great photos of the cats on his visit.

✔Cat Friendly ✔Dog Approved

Thank you kindly for your consideration in my animal companion care-giving services. I am quite fortunate to have had many various animal companions by my side throughout my life and have grown to understand and appreciate the importance of the relationship we share with our non-human companions.

Whether you're new to Rover or are a repeat client rest assured that I will do everything I can to address your concerns and worries prior to your ...

What Osha would like to know about your dog

• What are your animal companion's preferences, likes, and dislikes?

• Do your animal companions have any allergies or any special dietary or care needs?

• Do they have a favorite toy, game, place to lounge, or place to visit?

• Do they snuggle in bed at night or prefer to be tucked into their own special space?

I'd like to know the as much as you would like to share in regards to each of your animal companions. I understand that each individual will have personalities and preferences of their own - but I would like to fulfill the role both you and they are intending to have filled. Knowing that different breeds require differing care routines, meals, and sometimes supplements or medications - I do rely upon owners for the direction needed to fulfill seemingly normal, yet specific tasks. The more information I have to work with the better care and service I can provide each individual animal companion.

Sometimes animal companions can become vocal or fierce. Before you book please clearly provide and detail any known aggressive tendencies or behavioral triggers in regards to each animal companion. I realize instances of aggression and biting can be manifestations of an underlying territorial behavior, dominant behavior, uncertainty, or anxiety. It is imperative that I am prepared with the knowledge needed to prevent, identify, and safely control any potentially dangerous situation.

I will always do my best to avoid any emotional distress or trauma for each animal companion within my care. I will always work to deescalate any maladaptive behaviors experienced within my presence. I will work with the comfort of each companion in mind. I will supervise and control with clear leadership and compassion. The safety of your animal companions, our community, and myself are always top priorities.

When Osha watches your pet

I currently offer three types of low-stress daily booking service options to ensure the best care for your animal companions during your absence.

Below are brief descriptions of each booking option and why you would consider creating a booking reservation for the service offered:

✹ EVENING HOUSE SITTING - These bookings give you the opportunity to provide care, compassion, and companionship to your animal companions throughout your evening absence. Rest assured that both your animal companions and your home are being properly attended to and watched over while you are away from home. These bookings give your animal companions an opportunity to be fed twice (evening and morning), have their water consistently replenished, have plenty of potty opportunities (or have their potties cleaned), along with frequent engagement, play, and constant positive reinforcement. Booking rates are for scheduled 8-12 hour evening overnight stays. Additional services are available upon prior request. Additional time may be given upon prior request.

✹ DROP-IN VISITS - These bookings give you the opportunity to provide the best care and affection required for your animal companions during your absence throughout the day. These bookings give your animal companions an opportunity to be fed, have their water replenished, go potty (or have their potty cleaned), and also provide an opportunity for engagement, play, companionship, and positive reinforcement. Drop-in visits are a wonderful solution for animal companions who would identify as homebodies - or to provide some sort of otherwise needed service from within your home. Booking rates are for scheduled 30-minute intervals. Additional time may be given upon prior request.

✹ WALKING ADVENTURES - These bookings are for both high-energy animal companions or for those looking to simply stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors. Walking adventures are a great way to give your companion an outdoor adventure during your absence. These bookings can range from a simple walk through the neighborhood, to time spent in a dog park, to a relaxing stroll in a local a forest preserve or nearby park, to an active jog along the riverside. Let's discuss the best outing options during the booking process. These bookings also provide opportunities for a potty break, water replenishment, along with food replenishment - when specified. If your companion likes to stay home, consider a drop-in visit instead. Booking rates are for scheduled 30-minute intervals. Additional time may be given upon prior request.

✘ COMPANION BOARDING & DAYCARE SERVICES - I do not offer either of these booking options in respect to the preferences of both of my own animal companions. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
