I have about five years of professional and 13 years of personal experience with a variety of different household pets. I have owned dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and rodents of all sorts over my lifetime. My work experience includes dog walking/pet sitting, caring for dogs at a doggy daycare/boarding facility, caring for animals at an animal shelter, caring for pets at a boarding facility in a vet clinic, and I am currently a Vet Tech Assistant at a vet clinic in Bee Caves, TX. Due to my job being in west austin and me living in north austin, my hours of availability are limited, and sometimes wonky, but don't let that scare you away. Shoot me a message and we can try to work out a schedule that adheres to your pets needs. I do live in an apartment, and am not allowed any pets other than the ones I pay pet rent for, therefore I will not be able to host any dogs, but I can stay at your house, as well as do multiple walks/drop ins throughout the day. If you have read this far and like what you've read, shoot me a message and we will set up a meet and greet! Ask me about a toenail trim, if you decide to book me I can make it happen at no extra charge. Would you like your pet to be freshly bathed when you return from your trip? Not a problem! Does your pet shed enough to make a fur clone? Ask me about my furmination baths and we can get a handle on the excessive shedding. (ask about prices during our meet and greet, as they do vary based on size and coat. In home baths start at $10, Furmination baths start at $40) Need your pet shaved or freshly trimmed? You may want to find a groomer, I will make your poor fur baby look like Frankenstein's monster and you will hate me. :( I'm not very skilled in this department.
If you have an Instagram, follow me @Poketfullahsunshine to see what my daily animal exposure is, and even see images and videos of some of the pets I have taken care of as a dogvacay host. If you don't have an Instagram, no worries! If Im watching your pet, I'll be sending pictures of them to you directly via phone or email.
***DISCLAIMER*** Expect your fur baby's photos to be plastered all over my personal social media accounts! (This is not for advertising, I just can't help myself. When I see a cute animal, I have to take pictures and post them.) All pictures of your pet that are posted will be sent to you, however if you would like to follow or friend me anyways, just ask :) I'll be happy to add you.
