I have a 5 bedroom house with a fully fenced in (8 foot privacy fence) back yard that even my husky can't escape from. My boyfriend and I care for the dogs, our friends dogs, family members dogs, I'm definitely the go to dog woman. I understand while your away the important thing is for your "child" to feel comfortable, happy, and safe as well as you feel like they are being well cared for and happy.
About this sitter:
Besides having my own dogs, I've been a groomer for over 4 years, have house sat for all of my friends dogs, and even ran a couple play dates in my home while people had work. Everyone I have pet sat for have told me to start my own pet sitting business due to how well i handled myself with their pets, and have given me permission to use them as referrals. I'm experienced in reading body language and watching closely interactions to ensure a friendly environment. I take my own dogs to 1 of 2 dog parks in the area, or the farm park right around the corner. My husky is ridiculously spoiled, he's on a strict diet of wet and dry dog food, and only allowed certain treats. My shepherd on the other hand will eat anything he can get his muzzle on. My friends joke they've got a better life than any human. I am a true dog lover, sometimes I feel more comfortable with them then humans lol.
I've pet sat from cats to pit bulls, german shepherds, to great danes. I've spent the night at the pet parents house, and I've had the pets spend nights at mine.
Why I love dog sitting
I have been a dog lover all my life. Growing up I would have had 1000 dogs if my older sister wasn't allergic, so I just cared for all the neighborhood dogs, got a job walking them, then grooming them. As soon as I moved out, I bought my first husky before I even had furniture in my new place. I would love to have more dogs, however I'm more realistic in the fact I could not care for 6 or 8 dogs 24/7 for the next 15-20 years, so this is the perfect medium. You have your dogs taken care of, spoiled even, and I get the joy of extra company!
About my yard
I have a medium sized back yard, fully fenced with an 8 foot privacy fence and a deck.
My experience administering medication
Any type of pills I'm comfortable with, my husky has a sensitive stomach and was put on stomach meds anytime he got sick off a food, so I'm a pro at making sure they take the pill.
