Hello! My name is Shirin and I am a dog lover. I am thrilled to be a part of the Dog Vacay community as it allows me to spend more time doing what I love - caring for dogs! My philosophy with dog sitting is to maintain as much similarity as I can with their current lifestyle. When routines, commands, and behavior stays the same, dogs are much more comfortable and feel as though their sitter is just another family member who *get's it*
I'm 27, have a bachelors degree in Public Relations, and work full time (M-F 8-5pm) in the IT industry. I've had large and small dogs my whole life, and fancy myself a bit of a dog whisperer. I live by a great walking trail on TC Jester Blvd in a town home complex with a fenced dog park, as well as my own patio. I have tons of dog toys, a very well socialized Papillon (see in my pictures) who loves large breeds as much as other small breeds. I also enjoy taking Noah to the Johnny Steele dog park. The hours I'm home and available are currently only on the weekends: Friday night through the weekend until Sunday night.
I am happy to meet you during the week between 5:30-7:30pm, or any time on the weekend, to get to know your baby and ease your mind. I know how hard it is to trust your furry friend with someone else, especially when sometimes your own family members will feed them things you don't approve, or encourage behavior outside of your standard rules. But you can be assured that I'm here for you as much as your companion! Let me know if you have any special requests so your dog has no confusion or break in routine while you're away.
Going the extra mile:
If you need a walk or a dog wash after 6pm Monday through Friday, I can accommodate. I can give your dog a bath during any service using your shampoo, or using my own. I love dogs and will be sure to treat yours with the best tender love and care! You can expect picture updates no matter the service you choose.
I hope to meet your fur baby soon!
