I am a Dog owner who has in the past owned Birds, Fish, Reptiles, and Cats. I have cared for family and friend’s pets / homes while they were away and I currently have 4 dogs from the ages of 5 months to 13 years. I am also an NAR for People so I have a lot of experience in caregiving regardless of the number of legs your loved one has. (Perhaps Grandma just had a procedure and cannot walk her fur baby, I can walk the pup and check on Grandma for you). I have cared for animals pre/post-surgery, I have been there for the "final moments" and for the first moments. While I have given injections to humans, to date I have never had need to give injections to furries, I am open to instruction, by owner or vet. I have taken care of special needs (elderly, diabetic, special diet, allergies, medication, injured, ect) pets and have been an instructor for many years in Pet CPR/First Aid through the American Red Cross.
I look forward to helping you out by coming to your home and caring for your pets (cats/fish/snakes/reptiles/rodents/dogs/ what have you) where they are most comfortable. I ask that clients simply be honest with me about their pets and any precautions I may need to take. (always have a cookie, don't touch paws, ect)
When I watch pets, I like to spend quality time with them petting, playing, feeding, or whatever makes them happy (a trip outside, a walk or perhaps a special treat). I will always let you know how the visit went, and will always be honest with you. I know your fur-baby is as important to you as mine are to me, so I will always send pics and updates as well. If it's a dog walk or an overnighter you will get a pic and an update! My Fur-Kids frequent the (grandparents) farm / Dog Parks / forests, so they get lots of outdoor adventures (and yours are welcome to come along or we can make a special trip to the dog park with just your fur-baby). I am adamant about following your instructions! If your pet has boundaries, rules, training routine, or special diet, you can be assured I will follow the instructions/routine/rules.
While I do have room for the occasional overnight guest, I do not take overnight guests in my home too often as the City Code states 5 dogs and you have to get a Kennel license. (and I already have 4) So Overnight Guests at my "dog house" are on special consideration / approval. In my home, there are pet beds everywhere, Dogs on the furniture, tons of Doggie safe toys, cuddle spots, doggy blankets, and cookies given often. Our Fur-kids are spoiled! (They even sneak into the people bed often). We have a Dog Run if we need to separate out pups at yard time, and 2 airline kennels in case someone needs some "down time". (usually doors open for a hide away, unless they "Need" time out) I have watched (incorporated into my home) guests such as Shih Tzu’s, Boston Terriers, and labs so size is not an issue.
