About Rhonda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a child, neighbourhood dogs would wait at my side door for me to come out. Back then, we didn't have today's leash laws.

I continued having pets while raising my family. We owned, or fostered: reptiles, guinea pigs, hamsters, cats, dogs, and rabbits. After our final pet passed away, I missed being surrounded by animals.

So I volunteer once a week at Wishing Well Sanctuary, a Farm Animal Rescue home, where I groom and care for: dogs, cats, sheep, llama, potbelly and regular pigs, ponies, horses, pygmy and regular goats, donkeys, cows, ducks, chickens and roosters.

---------------------------------------------
My 6-foot-Plus high, fenced-in backyard is 20-feet by 60-feet.
My 1,500 sq ft main floor is open concept and great for senior or small animals with difficulty climbing stairs.
Off the second floor, I have a 10-feet by 25-feet balcony.

---------------------------------------------
A typical day would start with a jog or walk through Cedarvale Ravine. There are two enclosed off-leash areas. If approved by you, I could bring your dog in there, still using my discretion.

I love senior pets and adjust walks accordingly. Just let me know what accommodation is needed.

After we return, if your dog still had energy, we'd play ball toss in the backyard, or tug-rope inside. I love grooming so that's often a daily bonding activity as well.
Once they're tired, we either curl up and watch tv, or I work on my laptop, usually with them slumped over my lap, or nearby on the sofa. IF your dog isn't permitted on furniture, I absolutely enforce this rule, whereby I sit with my laptop on the floor, with your dog still resting either on me, or nearby where it pleases.

---------------------------------------------
My only restrictions:
1. Must be house-trained
2. Chews only their toys
3. Not aggressive towards people. Let me know if aggressive to any other animal, so I may alter my walk route accordingly.

Rhonda is amazing with all animals and has looked after my dog with great enthusiasm and care. I have high regard for her abilities when dog-walking and have full confidence that my pet was safely looked after with lots of attention given to him. I highly recommend her as a skilled sitter.

Rhonda is amazing with animals. She has had cats and dogs in her family and has loved them like her children. She has fostered cats and rabbits and was the most amazing parent to them. She knows how to love them, care for them and puts her whole heart into it and them. She has a beautiful home to take care of them in. She is giving, nurturing and so wonderfully loving to them. Oh and did I mention - she volunteers her time at an animal farm giving love and time to the animals and also doing the yucky jobs too - like cleaning up after the pigs and racking hay.

You would be very luck to have Rhonda pet sit for you!!

Rhonda loves animals, it's that simple! Try going on a walk with her and see her fawn over anyone else's dogs on the street or in the park. She always asks permission to pet the animals first; only a true pet lover knows the value of that. Both my rescue dogs come from very abusive backgrounds and are very fickle with visitors, but when Rhonda comes over, they're both all over her. I'd recommend her as a pet sitter to anyone!
