I'm a student athlete attending CSU Chico majoring in Evolutionary, Ecological, and Organismal Biology. I'm looking for a winter and summer break job to try and save up some money for specific international reforestation and animal conservation projects. I have two of my own doggies at home that I'm always missing while at school. They're my best friends and family. I thought why not take care of dogs all day if I love them so much? Then it's not even a job! I play collegiate soccer so I'm very active and "outdoorsy". I love to go for runs along trails, go to the lake or river for picnics, and explore new places!
My backyard is quite big, plenty of space to run, fetch, bark, sleep, and play. I have a perimeter fence that is six feet high all around, so there will be no success for our sneaky escape artists! I also have an open pool so it's great for the doggies who love an afternoon dip, but maybe not so much for the "clumsies" who aren't the biggest swimmers. There's always access to water on the deck as well as on the grass. For more elderly dogs or any that aren't fond of stairs, I also have a side door that is accessible to the house that requires no climbing of stairs.
I have two dogs Frazier and Rocky, the two "Big Friendly Giants". Very sweet and love friends! They aren't rough at all and tend to mellow down after they've said their hello's with their new pals. I have had my dog, Frazier, for about six years and Rocky is a new member of the family that has been with us for about 1 year!
I can truly accommodate to any type of dog and their physical and emotional needs. I can be super active with lot's of play or more mellow with lot's of love and everywhere else in between! Unfortunately, I'm not a professional with medical care. However, I can, of course, take care of any oral or exterior medication the dog may need. During my past summer's, I volunteered at the Foothill Dog Rescue on Saturday mornings quite often so I am very familiar on how to properly care and attend to the needs of all types of dogs.
As for going over to the owner's house, I really am quite flexible with my time. The best way to schedule would be preferably at least a three day notice, but I won't turn down the opportunity even a night before if I'm available!
