***UPDATE: My roommate recently got a dog, and we have decided that in-home boarding at our apartment in the Presidio is too hectic and unfair to both pups. That said, my boyfriend and I have begun doing in-home sitting. All of the same promises listed below apply, and we still make our way back to the Presidio for fun hikes and still frequent Baker Beach, Chrissy Field, etc. We do both work full time - my boyfriend works east coast hours, so is home by 3:30pm on weekdays, and I usually don't leave for work until about 9:30am and am home by 6.. We appreciate you considering us!
I am a 25 year old with a love for dogs who seriously misses my German Shepherd back East. As a full time marketing professional in the FIDI, I would love the opportunity to care for dogs in the Bay! I am extremely responsible and have experience owning, sitting, and volunteering with dogs of all sizes, ages, breeds, etc.
Upon hiring me as your dogsitter, I can promise the following...
- 100% committed to caring for your dog as you would (# of walks, feeding, exercise, snuggles, etc.)
- Fun doggie adventures, if the pup is up to it (incl. hikes through the presidio, trips to beach, walks through golden gate park, etc.)
- Detailed daily e-mail/text updates and always accessible by phone
I currently live with my boyfriend in a 4 bedroom apartment in the Presidio. Unlike many apartments in the city, our apartment boasts a large common area, large kitchen and backyard that opens to many hiking trails, fields, and dog-friendly areas. All of my roommates are in their mid-late 20's and are fully committed to helping out/contributing to the care of your pet as I am. As a house with a nurse, advertising professional, sales professional and marketer, our schedules vary which leaves the apartment rarely unoccupied. However, it is safe to say that from 9am - 3pm on weekdays your dog would be unaccompanied in the apartment, with access to our mid-size backyard. On weekends I would be fully committed to caring for your dog, and he/she would never be alone in our home.
We are very excited to make some new furry friends!
