About Gil

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
About me:

My name is Gily. I am a disabled adult and I have have a strong compassionate bond with animals. I'm also a vegetarian. I love animals and would love the opportunity to watch and care for them while their owners are away. On top of being a vegetarian, I'm also a well accomplished powerlifter in the Special Olympic's. My powerlifting and Aikido martial arts training also comes as a supplemental aide for handling dogs with anxiety, big dogs, and energetic dogs as well. I also can play relaxing music or ASMR(Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) videos on Youtube to help relax the dogs as well. Those videos also help me fall asleep every night. I can handle 3 dogs at once. I'm more than strong enough to handle big dogs too. The reason I have to show for that is because I have deadlifted 420lbs., squatted 335lbs. and benched 250lbs. which keeps my physical strength up so I can strong dogs when taking them on a leash for walks or going to the bathroom outside.


Why I love pet sitting:

I've loved animals my entire life which got me into becoming a vegetarian. I had a very mischievous beagle to deal with on my hands that needed extensive training and a sweet calm loving Pekingese who was the sweetest dog ever. I was so happy in 2013 when we got our Nebelung breed cat Sushi. He reminds me so much of my little pekingese.

Meet my pets:

When your dog's stay at my house, my cat Sushi and I will have new friends to play with. He is a Nebelung breed cat that gets along with everyone and only knows how to love. Sushi grew up with other dogs when he was a kitten and he himself thinks he is a dog. Sushi also listens on commands like dogs do as well and he plays fetch. Sushi is an intelligent cat as well as being the sweetest 100% non-aggressive in the world. Sushi is a lover, not a fighter.

About my yard:

My backyard is not fenced but we have a dog chain for when the dog needs to go outside, also we would need to have the owner supply me with the dog's leash and food for when the dog stays overnight. I will take the pup out regularly on a leash for bathroom needs and fun playtime. When the dogs go outside I always stay and make sure to monitor them so that they are safe. I will not leave them unguarded.

My experience administering medication:

I am experienced with issuing oral, ear, eye medication needs. I've also handled dogs with doggy diaper and vet prescribed shampoo as well needs as well. I do my best to take care of your pups.

Emergency supplies:

I have 3 extra leashes, 2 extra dog food bowls, and 2 bulk boxes of poop bags just in case. I also have pet toys as well.

I love pet sitting. I meet so many nice people and their awesome loving pets. Also my name in Hebrew translated in english means happiness and joy. Your sweet pets will get all the love and affection here. :)

Gil did a great job taking care of our dog. He clearly loves animals. Gil sent me multiple pictures of our dog through out her stay. I will definitely use Gil again.
Gil was really nice and sent pic updates of Nala! So nice to have someone get her exercise so her energy level feels more manageable when I get home. Will repeat :)
On the positive side, Gil was courteous and sent me photos on a regular basis. However, according to him, our dog got into a fight with his cat which he couldn't prevent. Consequently, my dog came home with moderately deep cuts on her face. I expected Gil to be more responsible and was dissatisfied for this reason.

We were nervous about trying this app, but Gil sent us lots of pictures and seemed very loving and patient with our energetic Pomeranian puppy. If we are ever in the area again, I'm sure Bear would love a visit with his new friend, Gil!
Great guy for high energy dogs, like our Terrier Bear. Will def be back.
Toby was well cared for. Gil sent us pictures everyday, which was so nice. Gil walked Toby everyday which a terrier really needs.
Gil provided wonderful care to my big german shepard puppy. He also send me a great picture of Walt relaxing with a teacup poodle. Walt who was an obsessive counter surfer, has almost stop jumping up to check the counter.

Gil loves animals and takes excellent care of them.

What a great experience! Gil took such good care of Percy. He gave me lots of updates and was so accommodating as our pick up time got pushed back. We will definitely be using him again. Thanks again Gil!
Great job Gil! I can tell Lily was happy with her stay at your house! And when my flight was cancelled, you stepped up and accepted another day beyond what I anticipated. I felt she was safe and well cared for. Thank you!
Gil and my 2 dogs got along great! Gil was attentive to my needs and my dogs needs. I will definitely be asking Gil to watch my dogs again!
Gil provided Lucy with lots of love and attention during her week with him. He frequently sent pictures of Lucy, and I could see that she was doing well. When I picked her up at the end of the stay, she seemed to be very happy.
I am so happy we found Gil for our senior dog. He is extremely responsible and was very loving towards our dog. We received updates and pictures during our vacation. I highly recommend Gil and will definatley be using him again. Thank you Gil!
Gil is a nice man who did a great job. Appreciate daily pictures and updates.
Gil did a great job taking care of my very active 11 mos old puppy. He came home very happy, relaxed and tired, so I know he got lots of attention, love and play time with Gil!
