Hey, there!!! To put it simply, I'm a 23 year old animal-lover. I've had an undying interest in working with animals for as long as I can remember. I had quite a few pets when I was growing up. I've taken care of the pets of friends, family, neighbors, and others...and I'd love to take care of yours!!! I've been pet sitting for quite a few years, now and enjoy every second of the time I spend caring for each pet!!! I mainly pet sit and board in my own home, but am willing to travel to yours to care for your pets. I treat every pet as if they are my own and will make sure they are happy as can be during the time I'm with them in your home or they're with me in mine!!! Details of some of the care I provide is described below.
Why I love dog sitting
I've been a dog lover for as long as I can remember. I grew up with dogs, cats, and other small pets (like fish and hamsters). My parents recently had to put down our two 18 year old Calicos named Maxine and Cleo, which was really sad. My 14 year old German Shepherd / Labrador named Gracie lives with me, and I've had her since she was a puppy. I can never seem to get enough of doggie cuddles, so whenever there's an opportunity for me to care for an animal...I happily take it!!! NOTE: If you need a sitter for your dog(s) for a longer stay, but aren't sure how they'll take to having another dog (Gracie) around...I do meet-n-greets and am able to have someone watch my dog, if needed, so that I can accommodate yours.
IN MY HOME I provide care for dogs of any age, size, and breed. I have a nice sized apartment with enough space to comfortably accommodate your dog(s). There is a large fenced dog park area behind my building for your dog(s) to run and play, as well. If you prefer not to have your dog(s) be among others, that's manageable. The apartment complex that I live in is rather large, so there are quite a few routes within it that I could take while walking your dog(s). There are also a few wooded areas.
Your dog(s) will sleep in my bedroom, unless you specify otherwise...whether they have a dog bed, a crate, or sleep on my bed with me. I am home for more than the majority of the day, so your dog(s) will get tons of love and attention. The only time in which I would not be home is if I have an appointment (which I would notify you of prior to booking). I provide daytime, afternoon, evening, and overnight care here in my home. Whether it's just a few hours, a weekend, an extended stay, or whatever it may be.
