My name is Kate! I've been pet sitting for about 10 years, mostly for family friends that have turned into repeat clients (I've been watching one pup for the better part of 7 years now!). I worked at a dog daycare/boarding facility, have volunteered at my local shelter, and I grew up with cats.
I will stay overnight at your home with your pet. Your dog will get at least 2 walks per day with the length of the walk depending on the dog. My short walks are typically 30 minutes long. If your dog is good on car rides, then they will probably go on a hike with me at a nearby park over the weekend (my favorites are Broemmelsiek Park, Klondike Park, and Creve Coeur Lake Park). I do have a day job, so your pet will be alone from 8a to 5:30p.
As I will be at your home with your pet, I will also provide basic house-sitting services; such as, bringing in the mail/newspaper/deliveries, scooping the litterbox, watering plants, and maintaining bird feeders/baths.
I have experience with leash-reactive dogs, dogs with high prey drive, and dogs that are aggressive toward other dogs. I am comfortable giving medication (pills and shots).
I love animals of all shapes, sizes, and species, and I can't wait to meet your pet!
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like more information.
