As a dedicated, organized and reliable professional with more than 5 years experience supervising the care of pets while their owners are away—complemented by my love of animals and my excellent experience in a volunteer capacity with regional animal shelters—I am prepared to ease your worries and give you peace of mind with regard to the wellbeing of your pets during your absence.

My background includes performing comprehensive tasks to ensure full animal care, including providing food and water, walking dogs, cleaning up animal waste, and providing general companionshiop. Additionally, I am experienced in providing daytime, evening, and/or overnight care while documenting the duties completed at each visit. I excel at prioritizing tasks while demonstrating a steadfast commitment to animal welfare excellence.

Highlights of my experience include the following:

  • Entrusted with the security of keys to more than 112 homes over the past 5 years, conscientiously maintaining the safety and wellbeing of the pets in my care during their owners’ absences.
  • Recorded all pet information, instructions, and requirements during client meetings to ensure full understanding of owner needs and expectations.
  • Offered additional support in general house sitting duties, such as collecting mail, watering plants, handling trash, and turning on and off lights and security systems as needed.
  • Consistently referred to other pet owners by current clients—as well as routinely requested by regular customers—due to outstanding animal care and job performance over the years. The chance to discuss your needs would be most welcome.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

How did you get started in this business?

I have lost my 3 year old poodle in the month of December when i was 11. The occarance of nobody to watch him lead him to wonder off into the streets and never to be seen again. I hope that he is well off with another family to take care of him. I am willing to go out of my way to aid your pet so that similar incidents don't apply to you.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My genuine camaraderie amongst my costomers and the pets that I am pleasured to spend time with.
