Hi there! I guess I should start by introducing myself...my name's Jayme. I am so excited about this opportunity, and am already looking forward to hopefully meeting you and your beloved(s) soon! First and foremost, I am a dog's best friend. I've grown up with dogs since birth- day one, and it's been the greatest love affair I've ever known every day since. ;).
Let's see, where to begin with everything else..
I earned a second degree in animal science, and am a former vet tech with all sorts of medical experience in the animal world, so you could rest easy knowing your pet is in safe and capable hands, while you are away. I now currently work in the human medicine world at NYP hospital, which is conveniently located 2 minutes from my apartment. This allows me to come home every day on my lunch break, to feed, potty, administer meds, and whatever else is needed as it pertains to the dog's care. I actually purposely chose to live in the WAHI neighborhood for that very reason. With this convenience, I never have to leave the dogs for more than 4 hours at a time, and in special circumstances, I can be more flexible with that time frame if necessary.
While I am in and out of the house, I am open to allowing your dog to have free reign of the house. My place is spic and span, and doggy proofed, so they would be perfectly safe in my home environment. With that said, if you prefer to have your pet restricted to a certain area of the apartment, or put inside of a crate, that is absolutely possible as well. I should also mention that I do love to snuggle at night, but if you have taught your pet to stay off furniture, I will certainly abide by, and respect your rules.
Lastly, I'd like to mention that I worked as a dog walker and a doggy day care employee while I was living in Boston a few years ago. I am also a former volunteer at the MSPCA animal care and adoption center, and a current voluntary supervisor for Inky Blue Sea Animal Rescue group, a role I find very fulfilling. In addition to this, I am a bonded and insured walker for WAG. I happen to live in close proximity to two dog parks, and have unlimited access to many more parks and outside public areas in my neighborhood, which by the way, like my building,is very dog friendly.
I think that's it for now! Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to set up a meet and greet. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
