I have been a pet sitter and dog walker/trainer for around four years (with a break in the middle for Peace Corps Service). I have had dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, hamsters, gerbils, snakes, fish, etc and am familiar with their care and needs. I also worked at Petsmart as a dog trainer and Pet care person. I love all animals! I am happy to board at my house (I have a car and a dog currently) or come to your house.
