I am a mature student living near the U of Calgary. I want pet-sit because I absolutely love pets of all kinds and I'd like to make some extra income. I grew up on a farm with 2 dogs but after about 3 years one passed away and the other now belongs to my cousin who has lots of space for her to roam. When I was younger I would dog-sit for neighbors as an after-school job and I have always done it casually for friends and neighbors since then. I live in a small apartment which is why I don't currently board pets or have pets of my own.
I walk a lot so I would ensure your dog would get the exercise that he/she needs! I have classes in the mornings on weekdays, but afternoons and evenings are flexible. Meeting the pet prior to boarding would be good but not totally necessary if I get some info beforehand.
I've never had experience with dogs recovering from surgery or those that require medication.
(Also, I don't currently have a photo of myself with any pets.. so enjoy the photo of a Chameleon I stumbled across in Uganda!)
