Hello! Bonjour! Woof!
My name is Taelor (identical pronunciation as Taylor - my parents opted for 'unique' and unconventional orthography). I am a 23-year-old female graduate student residing in Centretown (downtown Ottawa). I live in a spacious one bedroom apartment with my husband Daniel. There are two elevators within my building so if stairs are problematic for your dog, need not worry. Since I work as a TA and I will not resume my studies until September, I am available essentially every day to care for your dog this summer.
I am an immense animal lover, vegan, and mother to two miniature dachshunds - Bruno and Calvin. They are friendly, comedic, energetic, and full of character! I welcome you to explore their Instagram account: @BrunoandCalvin
I grew up with dogs as members of the family and I am extremely comfortable petsitting, walking, bathing, playing, and caring for dogs of all breeds and sizes. I treat my dogs as though they are my children (albeit quite furry). I would absolutely love to spend time with your dog, as would Bruno and Calvin! They thoroughly enjoy canine company.
Your dog is free to sleep on our couch, in our bed, on the floor, or in a crate (if you provide one). We are flexible and open to making your dog as comfortable and happy as possible. We truly want this to be a home away from home! There will be a great deal of cuddling.
My apartment floor is hardwood, resilient, and stain-proof so if your dog is prone to accidents, that is absolutely fine. It is easy to clean! I am incredibly patient and understanding. Our apartment also has a secure balcony. I generally walk my dogs outside 4-5 times a day and enjoy doing so. My husband works 9-5 Monday through Friday but when he is home, he will gladly provide additional love to your dog and assist me in caring for him/her. If your dog is open to socializing with other dogs, he/she can play with Bruno and Calvin or go on an excursion to the nearby dog park.
I am open to caring for all dogs with the exception of aggressive ones (if your dog will be staying at my home) due to concern that he/she may attack Bruno and/or Calvin. I do not own a vehicle and thus can only travel so far via public transit or Uber if visiting your home.
I am an excellent communicator and more than willing to text, call, or e-mail you consistently with updates and photos of your dog if you wish. Your dog will be spoiled with my time, attention, and affection. I possess a myriad of dog toys and healthy treats! Please consider me for your dog care needs :) If you have any questions, please send me a message!
