My name is Danielle, and I've lived in Cochrane for about a year. Currently, I work in the Nutrition department at Foothills Hospital in Calgary. I have 1.5 years of experience volunteering with dogs at the Edmonton Humane Society, but I stopped because I moved away. I also grew up with several dogs, including a border collie/Australian cattle dog mix, a Siberian husky/rough collie mix, and a husky/German shepherd mix. Overall, I'm an active individual, and whether it's playing volleyball, scuba diving, or a quick mountain getaway for some skiing or hiking, I'm always looking for something to do. This is only part of what makes me a great candidate to care for your dog(s) while you're away, no matter how energetic they are!
I have experience walking two dogs at once, feeding dogs with different dietary requirements (including allergies), providing medications and ultimately showing your dogs the attention they need while you're away! I am comfortable caring for dogs of all ages and sizes (large dogs are very welcome!). Additionally, I am only working part time at the moment, so I have a flexible schedule and availablility to look after pets.
Let me tell you a bit about the services I offer! I offer dog-walking in your neighborhood or a nearby off leash area for approx. 30 minutes to 1 hour. I offer dog-sitting services with 1 or 2 visits daily, where each visit is approx. 1 hour. I also offer house-sitting services where I will stay at your home with your pet(s). I have previously house-sat for cat, dog and even fish-owners! For house-sitting I will be at home with your pet for the majority of the day (and of course the night). The only exception is on days that I work, where I will be away for approx. 9 hours. However, this can be discussed prior to booking!
For these reasons, I would love to provide my dog and/or cat sitting services for you and your furry best friends!
Danielle did a great job looking after our dog and cat (and our house) while we were on vacation. She even stayed late to ensure that our pets would be cared for in case our flights were delayed. We would definitely have Danielle look after our fur-kids again.
Danielle is a wonderful sitter. Our home, two cats and dog were well looked after. I will definitely be asking her to sit for us again.
As a volunteer in the dog socialization program at the Edmonton Humane Society, I am confident in dog walking (including more than one dog at once), feeding dogs (including those with allergies) and, of course, spending time with all types of dogs of various ages and sizes. Additionally, although it is not a formal course, in order to volunteer with dogs at the EHS we are taught to identify and react properly to different types of dog behaviour including anxiety, impulsiveness, aggression, and fear.
