Let me care for your furry buddy! My experience includes over 4 years of work at both a veterinarian office and a pet store, plus fostering animals for the Humane Society - all because I adore them. I am away at Stanford, so my motivation for pet-sitting is to have pets in my life again- borrowing your fuzzy buddy to babysit would be the highlight of my day. My family dog was a dalmation-mix rescue but I love all breed sizes.
My place has outdoor green space nearby and lots of quiet, safe residential roads for walkies. There are no stairs so it is suitable for older dogs. As a student, my schedule is wide open and enables me to provide care and attention throughout the day. I am fit and happy to take more active dogs on runs or off-leash (at your instruction).
I will provide you with daily updates on your pet so you know they are safe and happy. To keep everyone healthy, dogs must have current flea and tick prevention and up-to-date vaccines.
I have cared for puppies, kittens, adult and senior cats and dogs, as well as all small animals, fish, reptiles and rodents. My background in vet care includes routine care, administering special diets, working with "problem" pets, providing oral medication, caring for pets with IVs and identifying symptoms of concern that merit vet attention.
I know these little ones are a member of the family. I promise the care and special attention they deserve at a level of professionalism far beyond that of the usual dog lover.
