Hello, my name is Carrie-Ann Burns, i am a 25 year old woman who really misses having a family pet to be around, and miss owning a dog or other animals. I love to use this website as a way to be able to surround myself with pets. I would love to help and assist you on any of your and your pets needs whether it is coming to visit and play with your animal, taking them on a walk, feeding them & sitting them, or watching them overnight whether at my house or yours. I can't wait to show your pets all the love and appreciation i can, and giving them what you wish you were able to while you are away.
A little bit about me; I am a self-taught photographer, and really love photographing nature and wildlife or animals and children. So if you would like me to take some professional or casual shots of your pets (other than what i will be doing on a daily basis for updates), i am able to do that as well and would absolutely love to while they are in my care, it would be my pleasure! I am often found in my natural habitat, (which for me is the forest, on a hiking path, near a waterfall, or feeding small animals out in nature). I really miss my childhood dog as she passed a few years ago, and i have been really considering getting a dog of my own. I have been considering using the money generated from this website, to save and use to purchase my own dog in the near future. I live in a duplex / house second floor apartment that is a decent size and layout and I live here alone. I will be the only person caring for your pet while it is staying overnight. I will never bring any guests or visitors to your home if i am caring for your pet in the privacy of your home. For overnight stays please be aware that I have a small pet tarantula, that is friendly and docile, and is in a locked tank away from reach of your animal.
I would be a great care taker for your pet if your pet loves attention, playing games, going for walks or is very active, then your pet will really love me as a sitter! I also enjoy lounging, relaxing, and cuddling if your pet prefers or needs a more relaxed lifestyle. I understand that each pet has different needs and i can respect and understand that, and look forward to catering to your pets needs. You can expect to receive daily photo and video updates whether via; the DogVacay app, by text, message or email. I will send you updates based on your preferences.
Things i am likely to ask you when booking with me for any of the services i offer;
- Your pets name, emergency contact information, your preferred vet's contact information, if your pet is microchipped and the chip information. If your pet has any health conditions or concerns, or other important information. Date of any recent vaccinations. Is your pet a rescue and do you know it's previous situation prior to ownership?
- Detailed descriptions and instructions of your pets daily routine and preferences, (Your pets diet and acceptable treats or any known allergies or medications needed, feeding schedule with amounts, your pets walking and bathroom schedule).
- If your pet has separation anxiety or any other important and useful information tips or tricks. If your pet has any instructions or rules on being on furniture, or if your pet needs to sleep in it's crate or on it's own bed. Does your pet enjoy the company of other visitors or guests (when boarding overnight) or do they prefer to be one-on-one. Has your pet been okay or uneasy around other animals, if so what types and sizes. Is your pet a bolter, or likely to chew on or eat things it is not supposed to? Is your pet well-trained, or is it likely to have an accident and if so what kind?
- Confirm pickup and drop off times, and how many updates you would like to receive daily whether via; the DogVacay app, by text, message or email. I will send you updates based on your preferences.
All drop offs are okay to do until 8:00pm, at night to leave room for the pet to adjust prior to bed time.
When dropping off your pet please make sure you bring the essentials like;
A collar with ID tags, a leash, enough food for the entire Vacay and items to keep the animal comfy like a Dog Bed, Toys, Treats, ect.
I can also look into getting a pet gate/baby gate, if that is something that is requested by guest.
