Hello there! Thank you for being interested in my services! I'm a young adult currently taking some classes at Sierra College to pursue a degree in Theater Arts so I have time to spend giving loves & cuddles to your pets!
I have owned a few pets through the years such as a dog, a guinea pig & quite a lot of fish. I had my dog since I was a child until she passed away & was involved in all her care; bathing & grooming/flea control, feeding, exercise, medications, general comfort. I'm very comfortable with all sizes & breeds of dogs, but of course a happy temperament of the animal helps!
If you own any kind of rodent, I can help there too! I owned a guinea pig through it's teen-old age years & also know about their needs! Health care & cage care are important to me, a clean cage means a happy rodent! I can take care of hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, etc. but I do not own a cage or supplies, so if you wish for me to sit them please bring what supplies they'll need!
We have a full house with 4 people living here! Sometimes my nieces come to visit but they're comfortable around pets so that shouldn't be a worry. Dogs get lots of smells & new experiences around our home & especially our large backyard! It's a big space which is perfect to play time! We do have a pool, but don't worry- it's fenced & locked! Also, for senior dogs we do have some stairs & steps around the house. I can block the stairs & help the dog maneuver the steps.
I do have some restrictions! I don't own any dog food but I do own shampoos in case they get dirty playing outside. If I sit at night or around the time you usually feed your dog, please bring some food for him/her! If your dog is not house trained, I will not sit for you. We don't own any cages, we liked our animals to have free range. If you don't allow your pet upstairs please let me know so I can plan accordingly. I don't allow pets on the furniture! If your pet needs medications at a certain time please let me know so we can talk about it further! Please note, all of our neighbors have dogs so the chances of one of them getting fleas are reasonable. It is at your discretion if you'd like to put a flea collar on your animal before they arrive here, but I will not provide them with one.
Another thing I've noticed when sitting, is that a lot of dog owners do not own or have collars or ID tags. If you own a collar with ID tag for your animal please put it on them & leave it on if I'm sitting at your home or if your animal is staying with me. I'd prefer all animals to have ID tags when they stay with me, in the off chance that something happens & they run away. It makes me feel more at ease knowing the animals are properly tagged, so if you own it- please put it on.
