Hello! I am Xina and I am looking forward to spending quality time with your dog. I work from home and when your dog is under my care, he or she will always have human supervision and love. We have an enormous backyard with a secure 6 foot fence for our doggy guests. Check out my photos to see my home and fully fenced-in yard. It's like a doggie vacation! Truly your dog's home away from home. My own dogs love playing outside and can't wait to have your dog join them!
About this sitter:
I live in Thousand Oaks, CA with my husband Dave, turtles, birds, a cat and rescue dogs (Rudy, Kima, and Misha). I love to hike with my dogs and take them to the dog park down the street. I am also an author, having written a book on how to take care of your human, from the perspective of a cat!
Why I love dog sitting
I live in Thousand Oaks, CA with my husband, our turtle, our birds, a cat and three rescue dogs. How is that for evidence I am a die-hard animal lover? I love to hike with my dogs and take them to the dog park down the street. If your dog enjoys an active vacation I am the host for you but if you prefer your dog not go to the dog park, I understand that and will follow your instructions to the letter! I am also an author, having written a book on how to take care of your human, from the perspective of a cat! We have a large secure yard for your pet to enjoy. I am able to give most types of medications and am very responsible should your pet have special needs.
What your pet can expect from me
Lots of companionship, love, and snuggles. Play in the back yard and walks around the neighborhood.
Meet my pets
I have three dogs - Kima, a female Basenji mix of about 45 lbs; Rudy, a male terrier mix of about 30 lbs; and Misha, a female German Shepherd mix of about 65 lbs. They are used to other dogs and seem to get along with just about all dogs. Rudy is very submissive and loves to play, since he's the youngest.
I also have a cat named Charley who stays inside the house. She is usually separated from the dogs, as she doesn't much like them.
About my yard
I have a huge secure yard with a 6ft wood/chain link fence.
My experience administering medication
Yes, I have experience with different topical medications and can administer pills.
