I am a PhD student working on my dissertation and have great flexibility in my day. I am home all day typically unless I am out visiting other clients' pets (10-2pm). I can provide dog/cat sitting in your own home or can take in your pets for the day/overnight if you are okay with them being around other animals (meet and greet definitely necessary). There are other adults in the home. When I am out walking dogs, my animals are crated and your pet will either also be crated or in a spare bedroom with the door closed. We also have a big backyard that the dogs can romp around in.
I am also a pet owner and animal lover (one dog and one cat). We also have another dog and cat in the household who belong to my sister-in-law. My dog is a 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier Mix and the other dog is an energetic 2-year-old Lab/Shepherd mix. The cats like to keep to themselves as cats do. It sounds like a full house but we have a large home. As such, your pet needs to be okay around other dogs and cats. I would prefer they meet in advance.
I have experience pet sitting and dog walking with my own animals as well as for friends and clients. I enjoy taking animals on hour long walks on nearby trails and parks. We have a great park within walking distance of my home. If your dog is a runner, that would be great too so we can both get exercise. They will never be outside unleashed. With that said, I will not take them to any dog parks for their safety. I can also provide oral administration of medication.
I am in the North Natomas area but am willing to travel up to 10 miles.
Current Typical Schedule:
Morning walk (solo): 8:15-9am
Potential petsitting outside of home (dogs crated): 10-2pm
Evening walk (w/ my dogs; other adult handlers will walk my dogs): 6-6:45pm
***Dogs will get multiple supervised potty breaks and group play in the backyard.
