Renee was so great. She took such great care of our pup and sent us tons of photos which I really appreciated. I could tell Niko was especially happy with her big backyard (we live in LA, so he isn’t used to being able to just hang out outside and sniff around to his little hearts content). I would definitely recommend her and plan to book with her again in the future!

Renee was great. Dogs are a great judge of character so when my dog warmed up to Renee upon meeting her I knew I could trust her. Her house is fenced in in the backyard and front yard to ensure that even the sneakiest dogs like mine can’t get out.

  • Verified Background Check

Home full-time - large fenced yard

ABOUT ME:
I am a mature adult, a writer/project manager working from my home office. I have a background in pet care working as a vet tech, focusing on post-op and compassionate care of abuse cases, and as a special needs pet sitter. While I cannot offer high level veterinary care or diagnoses I can pill, syringe-feed medications and, if your pet can be handled by one person (me) I can administer sub-Q fluids ...

What Renee would like to know about your dog

I would need to know what special requirements your dog might have, any special histories, limitations, or issues such as fear of loud noises or adding large rocks to the water and food dish to slow down consumption and reduce concerns of vomiting. Anything that will make your pet happier, and me better at providing for your pet’s needs.

I have no breed preferences but unfortunately, I cannot take extreme barkers that affect my concentration, or biters – as a writer I must protect my hands. But I can offer a loving place for your dog to stay in comfort while you each enjoy your respite from the usual routine.

When Renee watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There is plenty of yard for exercise but if your dog likes walks (and is small enough to handle, and/or behaves rather than pulls free and runs) I can take it around the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a great location for leash walking with low traffic (kids play in the streets here), paved and dirt roads ranging from gentle inclines to slightly challenging slopes. If you prefer leash exercise to back yard freedom, please provide sturdy leash and collar with ID tags attached.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your dog is not destructive it can pretty much sleep where it likes. However, I have a very old, very dear cat that I will keep separate for safety reasons. This will mean your dog will be restricted from at least one room so she can enjoy her own space.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I currently telecommute from home so should be available the majority or all of the time.
