I created this profile as an effort to "pay it forward" for others who find themselves in a bind with dog sitters. I LOVE animals and enjoy being around them. I have always had pets (dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, toads, and chickens).
I work 3 miles away during the school year and have school teacher hours; I can check on your pet at lunch if necessary. There are two parks on my street and my yard is fully fenced. My two dogs are sweet dogs who would love a play mate.
I have had dogs all my life and loved a border collie until her passing in 2012. She had serious seizures for 5 years so I am comfortable caring for your special needs dog. I can administer medicine such as eye drops and pills as needed. I have 3 steps from my deck to the yard but have frequently carried pets up and down them during their stay!
I am pretty easy going so let's meet and greet and talk about your needs! I do have allergies and 2 dogs so I require to meet your baby first as well as a 24 hour notice so that I can take something to avoid the itch from some pets! If you are unable to bring your dog to me, I can bring my dogs to you for a meet and greet.
I came to DogVacay when I was in a serious bind with my own two dogs 24 hours before my family vacation. I am happy to be a dog sitter to help others in need of a safe, caring home away from home.
