6 yrs exp
I am a recent college graduate with an impressive amount of experience providing care and services for children and animals.
I am a pet owner myself, and for the past two years, I have been a house/pet sitter and dog walker for a 2-year-old Bernese Mountain dog. On an as needed basis, I also pet sit and walk a 1-year-old boxer/shepherd mix. My duties with both these dogs include frequent walks (we love going hiking!), feeding, grooming, and overnight care while the owners travel (sometimes at their home and at times at my residence).
Recently, I house sat for a family with 5 animals. Their 2 cats and 3 dogs had very specific needs and a complicated diet/eating routine. I stayed with the pets for 3 nights and was able to provide close care and attention to each animal and received a wonderful letter of gratitude from the owners, who I now frequently dog sit for.
While living in Boston, Massachusetts I dog sat for many people with a variety of dog breeds, including a Shar Pei that required special attention and medical requirements.
In addition to animals, I have been a nanny for 5+ years. I have simultaneously provided care for my many families' pets, and I can confidently say I'm turned to frequently because of my professionalism and the quality of care I provide when watching others homes, pets, and children!
