I have always been a huge animal lover for as long as I can remember. Throughout my life I have volunteered with many animal rescue groups and different types of animal rehabilitation places all over the world. I have always had a dog of my own but started sitting and caring for other people's dogs when I was 8 years old and I started helping my neighbor feed her dog, a German Shepherd, across the street from where I grew up. Since then I have sat for Jack Russell Terriers, Chows, Bulldogs (many different breeds), Chihuahuas, Pit Bull mixes, Pugs, Australian Shepherds, Huskies, and so many others. I love dogs of all sizes, behavior, and personality types. I have even cared for a few cats in my day. I am fairly knowledgeable on most breeds needs and behaviors and embrace and enjoy how different every pet can be.
I currently live with my boyfriend, Scott, in our East Atlanta home. It has a spacious layout with a good backyard. It is also located in a quiet cul de sac close to to many parks like Brownwood park or Grant Park and just a short drive to Peidmont.
I am currently going getting my masters degree through an online program and have a few freelance jobs that I do from home, so I am home most of the time with a flexible schedule. I like to start my day off with a leisurely doggy stroll in the morning. Sometimes it is the best time of day to take them on a walk because the day has not fully heated up yet. Then we will eat breakfast and hangout. There will be lots of room to play with Lou, our 6 year old Olde English Bulldog that loves to make new friends and playmates. Lou used to be used as the temperament test at his old doggy daycare so it's been proven that he gets along well with nearly every type of dog. We have plenty of toys that Lou loves sharing as well. Throughout the day we will spend some time outside as well as inside and then possibly another walk at the end of the day before dinner.
I am open to discussing any and all special accommodations as I would love to care for all pets so feel free to ask about anything! I have always loved all animals and would love to help care for yours while providing a terrific service for both you and your pet.
