About Danielle

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I recently moved from Seattle to the Pioneer Valley, and I am searching for dog-sitting opportunities simply to bring dogs back into my life and form new relationships with families. In Seattle, I fostered dogs for almost two years, and dog-sitting was a regular part of my life.

I have ample experience with dog care, as I grew up with 3 dogs in my household at a time, including a range of breeds and mixed breeds. With this experience comes a developed sense of comfort around dogs as well as keenness on each dog's needs as they grow and age. I have learned to deal with a variety of health scenarios, from caring for diabetic dogs, dogs with cataracts, dogs with parasites, ear infections, and more. With that said, I have experience giving dogs medicine.

Aside from developing knowledge on dog-care via my upbringing, I have 5+ years in paid dog-sitting experience, as well as volunteer experience through 1 1/2 years of fostering. My house- and dog-sitting experience includes consistent care for families, with dogs including a border collie, pitbull-boxer mix, golden retriever, and more. I fostered dogs for 1 1/2 years for a Seattle-based organization named Saving Great Animals. My foster experience included care for a number dogs of various breeds (Chihuahua, Mountain Dog, Terrier, Shepherd, Shiba Inu, and more).

Though not directly related to the care of dogs, I have 2+ years experience nannying infants, which does require the same practices and skill set: staying within the family's home for long periods of time, while also exhibiting a great sense of responsibility & judgement.

I have a fairly flexible schedule as a graduate student. I am available for a range of services, whether it is a brief dog walk or caring for your pet for multiple nights. I am unable to keep dogs at my apartment; so, my service includes visiting the pet at the family's home, and staying at that home should there be an overnight request.

Danielle is great! She took great care of our very energetic border collie, Jackson. He can be a challenging dog, and she handled him with ease. Danielle was my number one call when we needed a pet sitter, until she relocated. I strongly recommend Danielle.

Danielle is a terrific dog sitter! She is personable, mature, responsible and very punctual. Our dog has some serious medical issues, and we are totally relaxed when we leave her with Danielle. She is clearly a dog lover who knows how to care for dogs and loves to do it. We plan to keep using her for the foreseeable future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a responsible dog sitter.
