“Hi my name is Jolanda and I highly recommend Paris for any dog sitting that you may need. You can tell that she really has a passion for what she does and that she genuinely cares. I left my dog with Paris for a month while on vacation and she always checked in and let me know how my dog was doing. I believe that if anyone wants to leave their dog with someone reliable and responsible she's definitely the best fit.”
About: I’ve had dogs (3) and cats (3) ever since I was 11. I have house sat for dogs and cats since I was 14, and I worked at a dog day care this last year and a half. I am available for winter break for the dates listed in my availability. I go to school out of state, but have a very flexible schedule for breaks and summer time. I make sure I stick to the schedule the owners have given, making sure the animals are fed in the morning and evening, going on a couple walks, and getting so much love and attention and play time. I like to make sure all messes are cleaned up and the house is well respected.
“First time having Megan walk my dog while I was out of town for the weekend. She was friendly, communicative and punctual for every scheduled walk. And she squeezed in a last minute meet n' greet at our home the morning of (day we were leaving), which allowed me to see how comfortable my dog was with her. He warmed up to her immediately, and knowing he was in good hands, gave me peace of mind. Would definitely book again, thank you, Meghan!!”
“I highly recommend Jazriel as a pet caregiver! Jazriel is responsible, loving, and goes above and beyond to ensure the well-being of every pet in his care. He even saved my fur baby from choking!! Not to mention he is skilled in mail trimmings and does them for free with every booking! Thank you Jazriel :)”
About: What sets me apart from other sitters is my extensive background in pet care and my diverse experience with various types of pets. Since childhood, I have had the privilege of caring for a wide range of animals, including hamsters, Guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats, and even snakes. This exposure has given me a deep understanding of the unique needs and behaviors of different species, allowing me to provide tailored care to each pet under my supervision. One of my notable skills is training puppies and adult dogs. Through my experience, I have developed effective training techniques that promote positive behavior and reinforce obedience. Whether it's teaching basic commands or addressing specific behavioral issues, I have the expertise to guide dogs of all ages towards becoming well-behaved companions. Additionally, I have dedicated my time to volunteer work in the field of animal care. I spent several years volunteering at a veterinary clinic during high school, where I gained valuable hands-on experience in handling animals, administering basic medical procedures, and assisting with various aspects of veterinary care. This experience has equipped me with the knowledge and confidence to handle emergency situations, including performing CPR on dogs if necessary. Furthermore, I volunteered at a non-profit animal farm, which allowed me to work with a wide variety of animals in a farm setting. This experience enhanced my understanding of animal behavior and helped me develop a compassionate and attentive approach to their care. In terms of grooming, I am skilled in several aspects, including nail trimming, ear cleaning, and general grooming routines for dogs. I understand the importance of maintaining proper hygiene and ensuring the comfort of pets under my care. I can provide a calm and gentle grooming experience for dogs, making it a positive and stress-free process for them. With my diverse pet care experience, training skills, volunteer work at a vet clinic and animal farm, as well as my grooming expertise, I offer a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge that allow me to provide exceptional care for pets. I am committed to ensuring the well-being, safety, and happiness of the animals entrusted to my care. I am currently a full time online student so I can choose whenever I complete my classes which gives me flexibility in my pet care schedule! I am the most flexible pet sitter ever! Firstly before any appointment I ensure that my home is pet-proofed, removing any potential hazards or toxic substances. I secure the windows, electrical cords, and keep small objects out of the pets reach. I also will make sure your pet always has access to clean and fresh water. Regularly refilling their water bowl throughout the day to keep them hydrated. I will also engage your pet in physical activities to maintain their health and well-being. For example taking your dog for walk or playing games with them. For other types of pets I will also provide interactive toys for mental stimulation. I also do not mind grooming your pet according to their specific needs. For example brushing their fur, trim their nails, clean their ears. Overall I see pets as children and will protect and care for them as such! ❤️
“I have a 3 year old pit mix with a TON of energy, loves to run on the beach and visit dog parks. Catie did not hesitate to play with her and take her for long walks giving her the energy outlet she needed. Plus, she was able to trim her nails for me, something I couldn't get Kiko to sit still for. Thank you Catie!”
