Hello fellow parents!
I have always considered our animal companions as members of our family. Working with animals in general-and dogs specifically-is one of the greatest joys of my life! I was a proud puppy-parent to my two dogs Colt & Bijou for five years before a tragic family quarrel split us apart. Although my heart breaks everyday I'm not with them, just seeing other families' dogs makes my heart feel full again.
My home is conveniently located on 10th & Spruce streets in the Washington West neighborhood in Philadelphia. This area is just minutes away from Washington Square, and many fun locally-owned pet stores. I have a small patio area in the back that is fully fenced, although I find it is always nicer to have access to the whole city as a dog's "backyard".
I take frequent walks myself, so it just makes sense to add some dogs while I'm at it! I have tons of experience walking dogs, as I was a parent for two of the sweetest dogs in the world for many years.
I can provide unconditional love for any dog REGARDLESS OF BREED. I'm not sure if other dog-sitters have breed restrictions, but I am very against that kind of thinking. Breeds don't inherently make dogs bad, and I have a special soft-spot for pitbulls and rotweilers in particular, but ANY breed is welcome at my home.
A typical day would look like this:
First thing in the morning is a bathroom break. That would happen at a park or grassy space nearby. Upon arrival back home, we would eat breakfast. Depending on the owner's instructions, breakfast would be on of the default two recommended meals per day. After breakfast, lots of play-time, attention, cuddles, pets, and kisses would ensue. I normally take five or more walks per day for a healthy dog. These would be distributed throughout the day and will always include a park.
