My name is Jill and I am an animal enthusiast. Even though I didn't grow up with a dog, I had many other fur buddies (guinea pigs + a bunny... oh and a turtle) that I spoiled deeply. Though I was resentful toward my parents that we couldn't have a dog, I had many close friends who did, so I was able to get my doggie fix. Oh and I would (and still do) come across stray, hurt, or lost animals that I recused. Hurt Canadian goose - check! Baby squirrels, too many to count.
Currently, my husband and I have a 6 year old, smooth coat collie/shepherd mix named Sam, who loves anything that is living, and David Bowie, a 9 year old yorkshire terrier who thinks he rules the roost. They are best buddies and welcome other well behaved furry friends to hang out in their 2 dog gang.
We are from back east, and before we relocated to Culver City, we had a group of friends and their pups gather each weekend to romp at different hikes and parks. Both Sam and Bowie miss their east coast buds and want to make some new friends!
Also back east, my husband and I watched almost all of Sam and Bowies friends on many occasions. I also would dog sit for my next door neighbor on a regular basis. I would voluntarily take them on walks when he was working just to help him out.
Right now I am looking to help other families and friends manage their routines with an extra set of hands. I'd love the opportunity to help watch your fur baby whether it's a quick romp or a slumber party.
We live in a medium size home with a backyard that has an area to take a bathroom break or sun bathe. Because of the size of our property, I am only going to offer boarding and daycare services to large dogs/80 pounds and under. Even though our backyard is not huge, I do overcompensate with an adventure a day consisting of a hike, trip to the beach or park and then a neighborhood stroll at night. Based on size, the pup is able to to sleep on his/her dog bed on the floor or snuggle on the couch.
I'm a very positive, active individual that loves to keep busy and having an extra set of paws to look after is the best ticket!
A pet meet and greet is mandatory and I can come to you at your convenience! As I mentioned, for slumber parties and all day daycare, I am unable to take extra large dogs. Also for these services, I do ask to provide proof that all shots are current by certificate/copy of records from your vet. Pups need to be on a flea treatment and house trained. Our main priority is the safety and health of our own dogs, so please understand that these are simple, easy precautionary measures. I will also provide a copy of our dogs vaccinations for your records.
