I have enjoyed the blessing of having pets and pet-sitting all of my life. With the help of my physician parents, I started a house, garden, pet-sitting business when I was 9 or 10. I house sit often for busy executives and business owners and often times this includes pet care, comfort, and companionship. I believe every pet is different and care should be customized according to family preferences and animal personality and breed/type. I am knowledgeable on common sense do's & don'ts. I talk to animals and expect them to behave. Like Ceaser, I believe dogs who misbehave or bark excessively most likely have not had enough exercise or other attention. Safety is of utmost importance. Ensuring your precious baby/babies are found better off when you return is my goal. I do not have many distractions with FB, friends, relationships, or children. I like to pet sit because I currently am unable to have pets where I live. I do not mind cleaning or other chores or even staying overnight 24/7 if the right situation. The way I charge is "you think you're getting a good deal, I think I'm getting a good deal".
Able to earn cert/course/insur, however, never B4 needed; has never been an issue. I see all animals as precious creatures we have been given the duty, honor, opportunity to care for in exchange for their unconditional love/acceptance.
