I recently moved from renter to home owner (with my husband) and I am excited to offer my services and sanctuary for pet care! As dog lover and avid runner, I love to combine two of my favorite things.
I am an immigration paralegal and I work at a Center City firm. That said, I work M-F 9-5. My availability for first timers is usually just for weekends (to make sure it's a good fit). If the dog, owner, and myself are all comfortable - I am more than happy sitting during the week but be mindful that I am working full time M-F 9-5!
The house is located in Fishtown (right around the corner from Whipped Bakery!) and has a medium gated/locked and fully enclosed (Concrete walls are approximately 7ft high, one wall is metal fence and door to alley way is metal fence) and accessible though side and rear doors of the house. Great for playing fetch and basking in the sun! The house also has central air to keep pets cool in the summer heat! There is also Palmer Dog Depot (an enclosed dog park) nearby, as well as Penn Treaty Park, a natural oasis and green space on the Delaware River.
I grew up with a German Pointer mix and three cats. I loved hiking, kayaking, and running with my dog growing up. I have since dog/cat/house sat for two families in Chestnut Hill for up to 2 weeks at a time. I have also taken care of a friends dog and provided overnights at my house for up to 2 weeks at a time. I have also volunteered with Monster Milers in Graduate Hospital. This organizations partners local runners with dogs in shelters to provide the dogs with exercise and socialization while advertising their adopt-ability!
I love dogs and cannot wait to have one of my own! In the meantime, I am happy to help provide petcare services!
