About Desiree

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have lived with and taken care of dogs and cats most of my life. I love animals and they love me. I have taken care of various breeds of dogs from puppies to senior dogs. It is exciting to be a caretaker for animals and I find it very rewarding. It seems like all breeds have their own personality traits and I am enjoying learning about different breeds of dogs I have never known before.

I have just completed the Dove-Lewis First Aid for companion Animals taught by Christy Michael.

I also walk my daughter's dogs, a Pom-Skipper Key cross as well as a Shih tzu, on a regular basis. I bathe them, play ball with Charlie and love them a lot.

I currently live in a townhouse with pet restrictions so I don't have a dog right now, however, walking and pet sitting fills the void for me. Presently, I have one cat, Tristan who is five and becoming very spoilt since he is the "only child". Since Tristan is now mostly an indoor cat now, I constantly buy him new toys to keep him entertained.

I would be glad to bath your dogs, however, I can't lift over 30 pounds into a tub.

Desiree has watched my cat for me while I was out of town, on a few occasions. She was flexible and receptive about making the arrangements.

On the front end, she was extremely thorough in making sure she understood the needs of my beloved pet, as well as my own need for being reassured that he would be taken good care of in my absence.

While I was out of town, Desiree made sure to be available for me to contact with any concerns. When I returned, to a very happy little fur-baby (yes: my cat is my baby), and to find my house and pet-care supplies in fine order, Desiree provided me with a full reports of his behavior and eating habits while I was gone. It was quite apparent that she had taken wonderful and intentional care of my cat and had respectfully minded my house in the course of doing so.

Desiree has become my go-to pet sitter: she is so personally delightful to deal with and and apparently takes great care to look after my sweet kitty when I can't be home.

Des is mature, calm, and capable with both cats and dogs. She cares about them and loves them dearly. She is honest, reliable, and trustworthy. I would want her to take care of my house and pets because I know her well and trust her implicitly.
