Hello my name is Lorraine I have been working as a nanny for over 10 years and most of the families that I work with have pets. So part of my day would be spent looking after them. We would take the dogs to the parks with us or if the family has cats I would ensure that they were, content and played with. When the families go on vacation I get to house/pet sit so not only am I trusted with their child but their pets as well.
I worked/trained as a dog groomer for 1 year and part of the day would be to make sure that all dogs were taken out for a walk and a bathroom break, as they are usually there for the whole day. When I was training as a groomer I volunteered at the SPCA so I could get used to handling all types of cats and dogs. I also was trained in grooming cats, bathing/shaving them safely and making sure that they were not in distress as going to the groomer or vet is not much fun for cats.
If you would like a reliable pet sitter while you are on vacation please contact me, my nanny schedule is light during the summer.
I am sorry but I cannot have the pets in my home, as we have Jackie the Jack Russell and she likes to be the center of attention. Her favorite walk is to the beach and she loves chasing her ball in the waves.
