Hello! My name is Laurel Anne. I have been around animals all of my life. I have had a black lab-german shepherd mix, 2 parakeets, a chinchilla, a hamster, a guinea pig and a small lizard, just to name a few. I currently have a toy poodle and a cat at home. I can pet sit for any of these types of animals listed above.
In the past, I have worked as a bather in a grooming salon for more than 7 years and have experience working with dogs both large and small. I have been pet sitting and dog walking for 13 years and it's the best job I've ever had!
I have also volunteered to wash rescue dogs at large pet events so that they can be adopted into loving homes.
I believe that animals should be treated as family members and with respect. This is also one of the many reasons that I support the idea of your pet being boarded at your own home where they feel the safest.
I have my own car for reliable transportation and a crate for small animals in the event of an veterinary emergency. I do ask that you provide your vet's information when we meet in person.
I also have experience administering oral and topical medications on cats and dogs. Within the past month I ha e been trained by a licensed veterinary assistant on how to give insulin shot to dogs with diabetes. Please provide specific veterinary instructions. (To be taken with or without food...etc.) I have a lot of experience working with seniors and disabled dogs as well.
Dogs with the following characteristics I WILL NOT pet sit for:
Dogs with separation anxiet and aggressios.
Please note! I charge by the DAY, not "NIGHT".
I no longer provide overnight services in my client's homes.
. For the safety of my own pets, I do not offer boarding in my house
. Please, also be aware that I pet sit for multiple clients at a time and your dog will not be supervised 24/7. That being said, I will always make sure that your pet is safe, has been fed and has gone potty before I leave.
$35 is my base rate for clients that are 10 minutes and under from my house. The maximum distance I can manage in my day to day schedule is a 15 minute drive to my client's home. If you are over 10 minutes away from my house, I charge $10 extra per day for gas.
If your animal requires medicine to be administered, I charge a $5 extra fee per day. If medicine needs to be given to more than one animal I charge $10 extra per day. If your dog needs insulin injections or shots I charge $10 extra for each time the shot is given. If you have more than one animal that needs an injection shot, please speak with me and I will work with you.
