Hello. My name is Jill. When it comes to my experiences with caring for pets, I have, since 2011 regularly cared for my friend's dogs as well as had a job as a dog walker for an older woman with mobility issues. I have also volunteered at the humane Society for over a year.
My typical day is roughly 8 hours away from home Mon-Fri. During that time I would be able to offer limited potty breaks during the day (possibly 1), however on weekends I am home the entire time. This is where I would be able to offer much more interaction time, as well as provide more supervision. I will be here full time over the Christmas holidays (16 Dec - 07 Jan), which would allow for peace of mind for those travelling during that time.
I have a fully enclosed yard with a couple of trees and hedges that the dogs can run around. I have a large deck that is perfect for lounging and is not high off the ground for those more debonair senior dogs.
I live close to a dog park in which Gaston and I go to quite often. It has a combination of wooded areas with trails, open grassy areas, access to the river as well as concrete bike paths. I also live close to walking trails along the river.
When your pet comes to stay, be it for a short while or for longer, they will get superb attention along with mind stimulating games such as trying to find hidden treats to basic obedience refreshers, although I am not experienced enough to provide full fledged obedience training.
