Hi! I have been actively dog-sitting and -walking through sitter-matching sites for the past five months. Before then, I had dogs since I was 5 years old, with up to 3 at a time in my family home. I've helped care for 2 of my roommate's dogs, including when they were puppies, lots of potty patience, walks and runs and hikes, care for a few paw and tail injuries, and my favorite, trips to the dog beach. I enjoy being active with dogs and also totally relaxing and cuddling, and I've stayed many times with dogs who require both. I have administered medication to a friend's dog who I stayed with 4 times, and cleaned up after him when he was sick. I have also watched friends' cats many times, often for two at a time.
Dogs and cats are best friends, and I know first-hand how attached they are to you -- which is why I care about them being happy and healthy while you're at work or out of town. To be honest, this job is so special to me and I appreciate you letting me love your pets!
