Hello fellow animal lovers!!
My name is Patrick and I am a 25-year old that absolutely loves animals. Whenever I go over to someone else's house, I usually greet their pet before the person :)
My love for animals, and dogs especially, started at a young age when I worked with my Uncle at his dog-grooming, dog-breeding, and dog-boarding service. I then begged my way into getting a yellow lab in 3rd grade.
In middle school, I started my own dog-walking and dog-sitting company in my neighborhood and received rave reviews from pets and owners alike (would be more than happy to provide a reference!)
During college, I have adopted/raised/cared for a husky mix, a black lab mix, and chow-golden retriever.
Last summer, I was a foster parent for pit bulls that would have otherwise been put down from puppies to 11 years old.
Unfortunately, I currently do not own a dog.
I am an active, caring, emotionally intelligent, intuitive person that truly connects with animals. I thoroughly enjoy being around all animals, though I admit dogs are my favorite.
I had been doing DogVacay while I lived in DC since January 2016, and I am very much enjoying the continued awesome experience here in Shaker Heights.
Let me highlight a couple aspects of the house as captured in my pictures:
- Spacious, sun-lit first floor
- Locking double doors between the living area and dining area/kitchen
- Bedroom with queen bed for those allowed on beds
On weekdays, I am loosely attached to my computer in my room from around 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, but am transitioning more to an in-office role downtown. I take frequent breaks from the screens and will be happy to have a companion to play or just lounge.
If weekends happen to be your arrangement, I am more of a stay-at-home guy too and will be around 24/7 to provide loving care and attention to your dog. (**Update 4.29.17**) I am now only accepting pups from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening due to my new work schedule :(
I have experience with animals of all types, sizes, ages, and temperament. I am extremely confident I will provide your pet with the highest quality of care while you are away :)
Please reach out to me if you have any questions at all or would like to speak further about my experience and qualifications! During normal work hours (9:00 - 4:30) texting my phone (440.708.6699) or through the DogVacay message system will be the most reliable form of communication. After hours, anything will work. Thanks for reading!
