Loving family of four that would love to provide a comfortable place for your fur baby to stay. We currently do not have any pets, but as a family who has always had a pet in the house, we miss the company!
We have two small children, ages 6 and 2 years old, so the dogs would have to be good with kids. They are both used to having dogs so they are gentle.
We have a large, fully fenced in backyard with secured gates so there is no way for them to get out. The yard has no dangerous plants as we have had dogs in the past along with our young children. We have plenty of space inside for the dogs to be amoung us. They can have free range of the house if you wish, or we have baby gates if you need them to be kept away from stairs for example. There are dog parks in our area as well.
We have always had dogs; our parents have had dogs and cats as well. Some of the dogs we have owned are Greater Swiss mountain dog, Rottweiler, Cane Corso, Old English bulldog. We have also dog sat for friends on occasion when they were away/ family emergencies, etc.
They would be fed, given water, walked twice a day for 20 mins each time (or if they are normally walked more/less that is fine too), played with, brushed, and be given comfortable sleeping spaces (they can sleep in our bedroom or any other preferred place in the house).
Owner would have to provide essentials...eg. a dog bed (or crate if that's what they normally sleep in), dog bowls, food, toys, brush, and special blankets or comfort toys that they need.
We will send pictures to you while you are gone so you can see that they are in good hands.
I am 34 years old and a teacher by profession so I am home on weekends, all holidays (March break, Christmas break, all long weekends), and during summer months. My husband works from home so between the two of us your pet will have constant attention. We would be accommodating to whatever routines and schedules you have in place for your fur baby to make the temporary separation from you as comfortable as possible. We are comfortable accommodating up to two dogs at a time, but only from one family at a time (ie. we would not care for one dog from one family and another dog from another family at the same time, but we will care for two from one family).
I also have some experience with other pets. We used to own a savannah monitor, hamsters, and fish.
We absolutely recommend Amanda if you are looking for a reliable, experienced and trustworthy dog sitter. We were really anxious about leaving our seven month old Sofie for the first time but our experience has been wonderful. We were reassured as we went through the greet-and-meet process and we quickly realized Amanda has a great familiarity with handling pets. During Sofie's stay, Amanda was thoughtful as she was frequently in touch and put us at ease with pictures, videos and texts. Sofie had a smooth transition as she felt safe and comfortable. We would not hesitate to rely on Amanda again.
I know her whole family love my puppy Eloise
I used to work at an emergency veterinary clinic for 3 years. I also have first aid training. However, if there was an emergency there is a veterinary clinic minutes up the road.
