My name is Annie and I am really excited about the chance to care for your dog when you can't! I'm currently putting myself through law school and don't have the time for my own dog. But I love dogs and miss having furry friends in my life!
I live in a VERY dog friendly building and neighborhood (Hunters Point South Living in Long Island City, Queens). Right across the street from my house is a beautiful walk along the piers and also a world-renowned dog park. I have a super active lifestyle and most of my friends have dogs -- so watching or walking or caring for your dog fits right into my lifestyle. My apartment has a beautiful wrap-around terrace that is dog friendly and provides a quick way to give my puppies "fresh air" when they need it. (However: I NEVER leave dogs unattended on my terrace).
I have had dogs throughout my life and have taken care of all sizes and ages of dogs. I know how to deal with puppies and full grown dogs. I'm also comfortable giving extra care (including medication) to elderly or ill pets.
I love dogs and dogs love me. My only restriction is that I have a six-year old son -- he is very well behaved and has been trained on how to act around dogs. But some dogs just don't like kids. BUT if your dog is child-friendly then my child will LOVE them to bits, just like I will. :)
