I have worked as a veterinary technician, kennel/grooming assist, & pet sitter for over 18 years so needless to say I have the experience. You can rest easy knowing they'll be in great hands with me. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ASK FAMILY MEMBERS & FRIENDS TO WATCH YOUR PET FIRST BEFORE CONTACTING ME!
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!
While on your vacation i send updates as well as pictures so you are aware of how your pet is doing. I walk the dogs several times a day, so they'll get plenty of exercise & potty breaks or they are free to roam our big fenced in yard if they'd prefer that. I am a stay at home mom so your dog (s) won't be left alone for long periods.
We do not have any pets of our own (our little poodle passed away). I NEVER take aggressive dogs or dogs that don't get along well with others. I have lots of great references of dog owners whose dogs I've watched frequently / recently. All I ask is that your pet is friendly with children (as I have a 5 yr old & 14 yr old). I've been pet sitting since my 5 yr old daughter was born so she's used to different dogs coming and going. She is very good and gentle with them. Also I ask that your pet does not have fleas and that they have flea prevention on them. If a dog does not have flea prevention on them and I take them for a walk it's possible that they may pick up a cpl fleas and I don't want to be held responsible for that.
I do not use any kinds of crates/cages (unless you'd prefer me to). They can pretty much sleep with us in bed & cuddle on the couch. I do go lower on price if you have more than one dog. I ALSO WATCH CATS! Sorry, I don't watch puppies who aren't potty trained. Please let me know how I can be of service to you. I would very much like meeting with you & answering any questions that you may have. Hope to talk to you soon!
I've included some pictures of the dogs (and cats) that I've watched.
