Hello and thanks for checking out my profile!
I just got started at DogVacay in December of 2016 and am absolutely loving my time with each furry guest that comes to stay. While I'm new to offering my services on a professional basis, rest assured, I have many years of dog care experience, just unpaid. I like this option because DogVacay insures each dog guest for up to $25 000 when they are with me, and they also take care of handling the fees (like a broker), and provide this great website.
So a wee bit about me: I am a serious dog lover who works from home and would love to care for your fur babies. Your pet will come to an environment where no harsh chemicals are used, in fact all of our cleaning products are environmentally friendly to pets, humans and the earth.
I have many years of experience dog sitting for my friends and boyfriend, for up to a month at a time, when they've gone on extended vacations. Dogs are allowed everywhere in my home and small-medium dogs are allowed to sleep on my bed with me. Rusty (one of the Golden retrievers featured in my pics) is like a ninja and when he's with me, he somehow sneaks on to the bed without waking me, so Rusty is allowed on the bed by default I guess. Haha!
Your dog/s will hardly know you're away when with me because they become part of our pack. I will talk to them just like I still do with Bella, even though she's deaf now. They will get lots of belly rubs and ear scratches, positive encouragement, and never a hurtful tone or hand! I will follow your food regimes with them and don't worry, I don't feed any dog unhealthy people food. I am experienced with administering medications, and also caring for post-operative and senior pet needs.
Regular walks to Whyte Mud Park; Terwillegar; or the river valley are part of our routine because its fun and tired pups are happy pups I like to say! I am flexible and will strive to meet the individual exercise needs of all dogs that come stay, as I know this can vary greatly.
I must forewarn you that your dogs will actually fall in love with me all and may want future playdates! We have heard this from recent guest owners whose dogs went home and missed us terribly, so we are arranging playdates to keep everyone happy :) "There is nothing so sincere as the wag of a dog's tail" ~author unknown.
I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends to discuss how I can take care of your pet/s.
Please check out my profile photos to see pics of some furry friends that our pack have spent time with! :)
