I've had dogs my whole life. I had my first German Shepherd when I was only 2 years old and have had many other breeds since then. I've had a Siberian-Husky, Pomeranian, Jack-Russel terrier, Bearded Collie, and my most recent was a Pug-Chihuahua/ Dachsund. I also recently took care of a friends' kitten while she prepared to move (how I found out I have a cat allergy).
I'm currently doing my undergrad studies full time at the U of S, and I hope to use my obtained degree to get into the Veterinary College. I love all animals, but I really love dogs! I do have a slight allergy to cats but only after a long period of time (roughly 1 week before symptoms become unbearable) so I would prefer to look after your cats in your home rather than in mine.
I currently live on the main floor of a house with my husband who works full time. Our back yard is partially fenced but not locked. The only way to the backyard is out the front door and around the side of the house so a leash will be required at all times.
Your animals will not be unsupervised for more than 2 hours at a time during the week-days (unless I have to do any grocery shopping but again will only be out for a short period and my husband may be home as well), and on weekends I can provide full day/ night care. I will not bring your animals to the store with me (unless it's to critters for a treat that YOU PREVIOUSLY APPROVE of), however if they enjoy car-rides, I'm not opposed to taking them for a drive (fully attended). I have a somewhat flexible schedule and am willing to work around yours.
Please note: I do not have the time to house train your pet, so if s/he is not house trained I will not take her/him. It is too much of a hassle and as a student in classes full time, I do not have the extra time that is needed to help a dog learn. Also, it seems that it's not clear on the booking page (as I have been asked numerous times), all prices are PER PET as per the DogVacay regulations.
