I can accept last minute requests and am not upset if you need to cancel or reschedule last minute. I send frequent updates with photos if requested to make you feel more comfortable entrusting your pet with me.
I prefer dog walking over dogsitting, but will consider both. My condo building will not alllow "bully breeds" such as pit bulls, GSD, Rotweilers, etc. These are not my rules.
I love animals of all kinds. They make me smile and I love to walk for mutual exercise. I will spoil them rotten! I don't get upset if a dog gets sick or has an accident, that's what happens with dogs in new places.
Sheila has always been professional, pleasant and caring. Her dedication to her client's pets has been top-notch. Your loved ones are in good hands. Thank for being so good to Pierre.
I like to meet with my potential clients in person with their pet/s in a place where it's comfortable for the pet. I would spend time getting to know and understand the dog's unique personality and quirks if any. I've never met a dog I didn't like!
I've been dog/cat/housesitting since high school, worked at a Petsmart in the dog training program awhile back, fostered over 15 dogs one at a time and finally adopted a dog of my own. I am a volunteer for a dog rescue and often go to court to stand up for dogs rights in court if they were abused or abandoned. I own a dog stroller and if your dog needs to be pushed in one, consider it done. I am comfortable adminstering medication as well.
If our dogs don't like one another, mine stays with a friend. I live across the street from the park (Lincoln Park) and take dogs out an average of 4 times a day, sometimes more for playtime. I always walk dogs on a leash.
