I am a professed animal lover in deed. Respect for Animals is a key skill that I truly emphasize. Skills that demonstrate my respect for animals include being patient, gentle and understanding of the different temperaments of various breeds. Other skills include, ensuring animals left in my care are kept clean, comfortable, well-tended for and showed extra loving attention. I treat them as if they are a part of my family. I have 35 years of experience with my own pets and 15 years + with dog sitting and pet care both in my home and at the owner's homes in the South Bay Area. Whatever the request big or small I can manage all needs such as 30 -60 minute walks, play time, dog parks, hikes to even administering medication you name it. I am very confident and passionate about my work. I am driven to deliver a higher standard of care and do more than one would expect. I posses a combination of many years experience and have exemplary skills with all breeds. Not only does my work deliver exceptional results, I guarantee you can be relaxed knowing your pet will be well taken care of and very happy in my care. My main goal is to give your pet the same loving experience they get at your home and to make your pets stay with me a memorable one! I know your time is valuable and will make myself available for an in person meet and greet wherein we can discuss both your needs and my enthusiasm for taking care of your beloved family member(s). I can be reached anytime day or night and will meet all your needs... Looking forward to hearing from you.
Priceless Pet Care
Communication between me and the pet parent(s) is key. I like to know everything and the more I know the better I can provide the best care possible for your pet. Such as socialization, mannerisms, routine, diet, likes, dislikes and most importantly any health issues. Any rules that you have implemented at your home will be followed at mine. Like being allowed or not allowed on furniture is a big one. I ask that you please, provide proof of current vaccination with complete vet information and I prefer your pet is on some kind of flea control during their stay. Size, weight, health and breed of a dog are a non-issue.
Most important thing for me as a Pet Sitter is to build a bond between us and to enrich your pet’s life by being a part of it. Exercise is important. I love walking your pet around the neighborhood and will always have lots of play time in the yard. If permitted I will take them to one of the many local dog parks, go on hikes or head to a pet friendly beach. Provide Mental Stimulation by keeping your pet active and entertained by playing fetch or tug of war, to toys and games both inside and out. Mainly, fulfilling your pets specific needs and keep them company while you’re away. Afterwards we can just hang out, chill and watch a movie together. My goal is to give your pet the same experience they receive at home, or one that's even better! I try to match the dog's routine, from potty breaks to the methods the owner uses to reward or correct behavior. Then throw in some extra fun to make the stay memorable for both the dog and the owner.
