Who am I?: Hello! My name is Caitlin, I'm a 27 year old pet lover who is now offering pet sitter services mainly for the delight in their company. I've owned a variety of pets from fish/cats/guinea pigs/rabbits and of course.. dogs! While I have the most experience in primarily caring for both dogs and cats (all ages), I can offer intermediate experience with other animals. I do not have official training in medical caring for animals, however I am seeking and will be acquiring the experience very soon! I am open to being administered a schedule for pets with particular needs at specific times. My most recent pet was a very loving black lab named Bear, who I found abandoned and brought home to care for. We grew very attached, I taught him many tricks from paw shaking, sitting, rolling and how to keep from leash pulling. I'm not a licensed trainer, but I find sometimes you don't need to be if you have that right connection! Bear and I were separated when I had an emergency state relocation, I could not bring him and thus he was left with the next best caring individual, my best friend and the one who also helped care for Bear when we first found him. I am having pet withdrawals and miss Bear very much, so please do not hesitate to contact me! Tons of love to give!
My Home: While I do offer in-home care, I prefer to sit for pets in their home mainly because that is where they are most comfortable. My home comes with a beautiful backyard, fully fenced with planks, a large dining and living area for roaming, carpet floor (aside from the kitchen which is wood-based), and tons of love from myself and roommates who love animals just as much as I do! I can also meet most accommodations, such as owning a pet gate, if requested.
Activities: The area I live in is very ideal for long walks, breath-taking scenery and friendly neighbors. I'm very active so walking or jogging wouldn't be at all a problem. I know several parks, my favorite being Laurelhurst Park, that I would love to take your pet to for ball throwing, other animal interactions and fun!
Restrictions: I am open to all breeds and different pets of nature. I have an open schedule to provide your pet with undivided attention! My only restriction is that if your pet requires a strict schedule or specific need of any kind to please be detailed about the task(s) so I can follow-up! Thank you for viewing my profile and have an amazing day!
