Experienced, Reliable And Caring Pet Sitter Available For In-home/Overnight Care.
General info about me: I'm 37 and I work with vulnerable adults and teens as a recovery coach. Besides helping people, I love animals. I grew up with pets and I've dog and cat sat for family and friends for over 15 years including a 4 month cat/house care giving job last winter. I've worked with dogs and cats primarily. All with different temperaments: obedient to not so obedient, anxious, frightened or unfriendly, the elderly, young, large and small. I've administered oral meds and topical ointments for pets.
My desire is that animals are safe, healthy, loved and have fun while their owners are away. My goal is to be around them as much as possible. I want to make sure they get walks/activity, have mental stimulation and get their daily needs met. I will work with them to maintain or learn healthy habits as well as give them a clean area to live and play in.
I will report anything to owners or 3rd parties the owners specifies if an issue arises and if owners would like regular updates.
If owners have high needs animals or more than 3 pets, we may need to discuss additional fees depending upon the situation. Some pet owners are looking for a trainer and I am not. I try to teach animals good habits and even teach them new skills but if looking for that certification specifically, or CPR, I'm not. I am, however, an experienced, trustworthy and caring pet sitter. The areas I can generally accommodate are between Rogers to Brooklyn Center and across to Coon Rapids and Plymouth areas. If owners don't fit this geographical area, lets chat to see if it could work. I'm currently unavailable for continual check-ins. I am available for temporary check-ins.
