Hello! My name is Patricia and I have been in the upstate area for several years and am originally from the sunny state of Florida!
I have always been a passionate animal lover, and know that my great communication skills, attention to detail, and strong love for pets can make me the BEST dog sitter you have ever had! I am very fitness-oriented and love going for hikes, going out for walks, or just hanging out at a dog park. I know it's all about THEM, and I will cater to their every want and need, as well as keep you completely updated providing peace of mind!
I've been caring for dogs with this service for about 5 years and have been a dog-owner my entire life. Additionally, I have 1.5 years experience working at PetSmart, 2 years experience volunteering at SPCA, and 1.5 years experience volunteering at Dog Wood Park & Daycare. I love any kind of dog and will treat them with all the love, care, and respect they deserve.
Why I love dog sitting:
I have always owned a dog and adopted my own dog in 2010. I love little dogs, big dogs, and all types in between. I absolutely love the energy and well-being dogs bring to their environment and I enjoy being around them as often as I can!
My fur-babies include my Aussie/Collie mix, Lucy, Matilda the tuxedo cat who has been around dogs her whole life, and Bubba, our shy but sweet Havanese/Poodle mix.
I have a large backyard that is fully fenced and doggy-proof! Lots of room to play and run!
My experience administering medication:
I am comfortable administering many types of medications. I have experience with pills, topical creams, insulin injections, and eye drops, and am a fast learner with other types.
My day job requires me to be at work on weekdays and I typically work regular business hours, but my schedule is extremely flexible.
