I love animals and enjoy learning about different breeds and species. In my home I only watch one owners pet(s) at a time. I also work from home so your pet(s) are rarely left unattended.
Each animal has a unique personality and skill set. The more time I spend with them the more I get to know them. Animals continually communicate with us. It's up to us whether or not we listen. I've found different breeds have different needs. Some breeds need to run, some are happy walking, some need more rest, some like to play, some need a job, some snuggle, others are independent, and the list goes on and on.
I started pet sitting because my dog of 14 years passed away and I cannot adopt another pet at this time. I've had the pleasure of keeping company with dogs, cats, birds, fish, snakes, rabbits, hamsters, cows, chickens and pigs.
If your pet(s) stay with me they can make themselves at home inside, lounge on the furniture, hang out outside supervised in the fenced yard, go for walks in the neighborhood with me and hike with me in Oak Mountain State Park, which is just down the road from where I live. I hike in Oak Mountain park every day so exercising your dog(s) is enjoyable for me.
If I pet sit in your home I'm okay with traveling a distance to get there and all of your pet(s) routines will be followed.
I require a meet and greet either in my home or yours depending on where I'll be watching your pet(s). This is to make sure your pet(s) and I get along and I know and understand all of their unique needs. I can handle minor behavioral issues but if your pet(s) have any serious issues I need to know those in advance. I can do minor grooming such as brushing but I'm not able to provide bathing, nail clipping, etc. I can transport pets to groomers though.
If you need someone to visit, feed and/or walk your pet(s) please contact me. I custom quote all those services depending on your needs.
I've hired pet sitters and house sitters in the past so I know how difficult it is to find someone you can trust to leave your pet with and someone you can trust in your home.
Initially I require a few days booking notice but once we get to know each other you can shoot me a text if you're in a pinch and need someone right away. If I'm available I'll be glad to help. I'm easy going, flexible, responsible, own my own home and am a former teacher.
Regarding drop off and pick up times: I'm very flexible about drop off and pick up times, but if you will be picking up your pet 1-4 hours past the drop off time a $10.00 day care fee will be added to the cost of boarding. If you pick your pet up 4-8 hours after the drop off time a $20.00 day care fee will be added to the cost of boarding.
