I have loved dogs my whole life, and I don't see that love fading anytime soon. I grew up with dogs, and I have my own dog now. Her name is Lyla. She is a deaf dalmatian/whippet cross and a registered therapy dog. Lyla is great with other dogs, so I'm confident that she will get along just fine with your dog. I have 3 years experience as a veterinary technician, so I have the knowledge of caring for pets who need medical attention. I have my Master of Social Work degree that has helped guide me to do Animal Assisted Social Work after I graduate. Being a social worker has also given me the knowledge and skills to work with diverse groups of people. I have transferred that knowledge and skills into working with dogs. I absolutely love dogs, no matter the size, age, male, female, or breed. I love them all. I am very knowledge when it comes to dogs and it would give me so much joy to take care of you dog as if they were my own.
I have grown up with dogs and have always had a passion and love for all animals. I have experience doing some training with my own dogs, but nothing professional. I have 4 years of experience as a veterinary technician, so I have acquired knowledge and skills to provide medical needs to dogs and cats. If your dog or cat receives medication on a daily basis I will be able to administer that medication.
My dog and I have graduated from a basic obedience training course fall of 2013. My dog and I are registered with Pet Partners to do therapy dog work. My dog is deaf, so I have experience working with special needs dogs. Personally I am more patient when it comes to working with dogs because I have learned through observing many dogs behaviors over a long period of time. My husband, family, and friends would tell you that I am a dog expert, but that is not completely true. I have done a good amount of personal experience and research that has helped me learn how to best work with dogs and cats.
Why I love dog sitting
I have loved dogs my entire life. The only time in my life that I have been without a dog, was 2 months between the time my 15 year old yellow labrador passed away and when my family welcome Wally into our lives. Growing up I was always told that all dogs loved me, even the dogs that were particular about who was around them. Currently I have a 3 year old deaf dalmatian/whippet cross named Lyla. She is very spoiled, but she knows that I am the pack leader.
Meet my pets
I have a 4 year old spayed female deaf dalmatian whippet cross named Lyla. She is absolutely the sweetest! She is great with other dogs and is always very welcoming. She would be happy to share her space with your sweet family member and provide them with play and cuddles.
About my yard
I don't have a backyard, but the apartment complex my husband and I live in has a fenced in dog park. It is spacious enough for dogs to get some exercise and play with other dogs. My dog loves going there, and I'm sure she would love to share it with a new friend.
My experience administering medication
Yes, my experience as a veterinary technician has given me the skills for administering medication of all kinds or dog temperaments.
