I absolutely love working with animals and have all my life!
I grew up with a large collie who lived a long, happy life, until he passed away at 16 years old.
I adopted an adorable little terrier (Kiki) from the shelter when I was only 7 years old. I am now almost 20 years old and Kiki is still healthy, happy & just as adorable!
I am a college student, but I take online courses so I have a lot of availability & flexibility in my schedule. The only time my schedule is not open is from 4-6 Monday-Friday, which is when I nanny for a family. However, I have two brothers (both 15+, and mature) and live with my parents (all four are also animal lovers), so even while I am away, there will most likely be someone else home providing supervision.
I have taken care of dogs in my home for family/friends while they are on vacation. I live in a two story house, with heating & air conditioning. I do have a doggy door connecting to a large, fenced in backyard. (The door was put in for both the collie & the terrier- to give you an idea of the size) Also, due to the fact that Kiki is an older and smaller dog, we have installed a ramp to help her get in and out of the door.
Since this is Kiki's home and she is obviously very dear to me, her safety is important. Therefore, I will not be able to provide any in-home care for aggressive dogs. However, even though she is small, she got along great with our large collie, so size is not a problem.
I can also come to your home to provide care or regular walks.
Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in setting up an interview!
