Selena did such a great job of taking care of Roscoe while I was gone. I have one happy pup for sure :)

I have known Selena for 6 years, as soon as I met her I could tell that she is a very caring person and a lover of all animals large and small. She is very good at keeping a schedule and treating others animals as she does her own. You should feel very comfortable allowing her to give your pets the best care they can possibly have while you are away.

Dog Lover for Hire

When I was growing up we always had dogs (and a cat) in our house, so a love for animals has always been a large part of my life. While i've moved away from home, when I go back for visits, seeing our family dog, Zoey, is always one of the best parts!

Our dogs, almost all Rottweilers over the years, were rescues and as such sometimes had a few special needs. I've had experience ...

What Selena would like to know about your dog

Before I agree to stop in and do check ins on your dog or take them for a walk, I would love to meet them and make sure we're a great fit.

Things that are also important for me to know are largely related to what their regular schedule is like. If you give your dogs treats and how often, what are typical meal times, when do they go for walks and how long, how often do they need to go out, how do they interact with other people or dogs if we go on walks, and do they have allergies or medications I should be aware of and if so, how do you treat them.

Equally important as the basics and routines though, are the fun things! What does your dog like to play with? Where do they like to go on walks? What are some fun things you would like me to do with them while you're away? Making sure your dog is as happy and well loved when you're away as possible is my main goal!

I don't have any breed preferences, but i'm most familiar with large dogs! I've had Rottweilers and Dobermans personally and have experience sitting for Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds as well as Collies.

When Selena watches your pet

My neighborhood is very walkable and dog friendly! I love exploring down to Brady St. area and wandering around the neighborhood, but my favorite walks are down on the lakefront. Living just a block away from the lake, there are so many great areas to check out!

Spending time indoors on a rainy day, cuddling on the couch can be equally lovely though, so no matter the weather you can expect your pet to get lots of attention and affection!

Being a graduate student, I have one or two classes a few days a week and I work on campus managing the Union Art Gallery. My schedule will be slightly different each semester, but is largely flexible as i'm only in class during the afternoon and I set my own hours at the gallery that I work at.
