51 Year Old Conscientious Pet Caregiver

I have owned dogs for the past 25 years. I enjoy my clients. So far, I have been impressed with the love, care and attention they show to their animal friends. For me, it is a lot of fun to meet a new animal and connect with them and their owner. A few of my stand-out memories include the following: walking an enthusiastic 130 pound dog on Indy streets, administering insulin shots to a brave cat, visiting two regal, rescued Greyhounds for potty breaks/playtime, watching Animal Planet with a gorgeous TV-loving cat and boarding a lovable pug who adores having his photo taken. I take on recurring assignments, as well as one-time assignments. Also, I board in my home where the dog or cat become part of our family. I believe animals add joy to people's lives, and I like being part of that rewarding experience. My schedule is very flexible. My schedule basically becomes your pet's schedule. Thank you for your consideration.

We really hit the jackpot with finding Sharon to help us take care of our Jax!! Sharon has been walking Jax for 5 years and is VERY reliable and punctual with her walks. Her communication is phenomenal about confirming dates and walks with check ins and notes left with each walk and boarding visit. Jax tends to be a little shy and nervous with new people but the moment we interviewed Sharon I knew there was something special about her. I never hesitate to leave him in the mornings because I know he is well taken care of and loved on. Sharon also boards Jax when we go on vacation and when dropping him off he is like a kid going to his favorite place. I am able to relax on vacation knowing he is loved and taken care of by all members of her family. I cannot say enough amazing things about Sharon.

I have owned and loved several dogs in my life so far. I presently own 2 shelties that love to play and run. I am a retired surgical nurse who now has time to do something I would love. I have great respect for animals and their valued place in the family. It would give me great pleasure to help out anyone who wants or needs their beloved pet to experience extra attention. I am more than willing to walk with dogs even in cold weather or play with them inside or a fenced yard.

Sally has been walking our two boxers weekdays while we work for the last few months. She normally comes a little after noon and takes them out in our neighborhood. Because I had a recent medical leave I was home several days when she came. You could see the dogs getting excited in anticipation of her arrival each day and when she came in how wonderfully she interacted with them. She loved on them and played with them each day and then they went off for their walk. She always leaves us a note with any pertinent info like one of them being ill or having loose stools. She deposits the doggy waste in our dumpster in bags we provide and has even cleaned up doggie accidents in the house upon discovery. (Not expected behavior and definitely going above and beyond.) I would definitely recommend Sally. She is prompt, kind, reliable, outstanding communication and even brought me magazines during my leave and offered assistance during my recovery. You can see how much she cares for our pups!
