About Lily

My availability for pet sitting one canine client is after 5PM on a weekday and flexible on a weekend.

I unfortunately cannot accept requests from homes with cat(s) as I have severe allergy to cat dander.

A minimum of two weeks of advance notice is advised and appreciated so that a meet and greet can be arranged, instructions/enquiries can be exchanged/communicated, and/or to leave sufficient time for pet owner to make alternate arrangements in the event my schedule is full/booked.

I have 6+ years of active dog caring and interacting experience through Pawshake requests, my current volunteer roles at the Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) as a Dog Ambassador Team with my furkiddo, and as a Foster Parent, and my past volunteering at the Animal Services Agency and at the Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter.

I am comfortable administering meds/supplements in tablets format, eye droplets, or in liquid formula via oral syringe to my client.

I have trained my own dog and some of my clients interesting tricks (through positive reinforcement via treats and praises), which include commands such as "go pee", "go poo", "heel", "touch" (using their nose to touch my hand at however high above their height), "rollover", "spin left", "spin right", "up spin", "left paw" shake, "right paw" shake, "high five", and so forth.

Breeds I have had the blessed opportunity to take care of include Beagle, Boston Terrier, Chug (Chihuahua x Pug), Eskimo-Chi (American Eskimo x Chihuahua), French Bulldog, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Puggle (Pug x Beagle), Staffordshire Terrier, Toy Poodle, and West Siberian Laika.

I will give my full attention and care for my canine client for 30 minutes per visit, guaranteed. Note: Time starts the moment I feed/relief/walk/play with my client. .

I will send updates through agreed upon means (email/text) on a daily basis (frequency is changeable based on pet owner's preference) and will highlight how many times the pet had eliminated in terms of number 1 and number 2 (both being key indicators to good digestive health), and/or may include snapshots/video from their walks, meals, and/or play times.

I love the outdoors, so cold, wet, or shine, I will take your pup with me out for walks! For winter season, I highly recommend pet owners to invest in and have on hand winter booties and winter apparels for their fur family to stay warm and comfy while spending time outdoors. Length of walks will be maintained by reducing time spent outdoor but increasing physical activities time spent indoor especially during inclement weather.

I pay close attention to details, so will make sure specific instructions for caring for your pet are adhered.

I am a full-time working professional when not pet sitting.

I pet sit during my leisure time because I love and enjoy being with dogs. They are intelligent and passionate beings. I feel utmost joy being able to hang out with them while keeping them fed, engaged, and happy.

My most recent background checks were performed in April 2022, which resulted in clean police clearance certificate and clean child abuse registry check. Both checks were part of WHS mandatory vetting criteria further to a successful formal interview, canine behavioral assessment, and completion of training and onboarding modules for the Dog Ambassador volunteer role under WHS Education Team.

Thank you for putting your fur family member in the trustworthy, reliable, and responsible hands of mine. Rest assured that I will care for your pet dog(s) as my own, with compliance to the Pawshake guidelines spelled out under "What services can I offer and what should they include?" found in Pawshake Help Centre -> FAQ for Pet Sitters -> Becoming a Pet Sitter.

I look forward to providing your fur baby a wholesome pet staycation experience paired with utmost care, attention, and love from yours truly.

Lily has looked after our puppy twice now and is nothing less than incredible. She is a great communicator, pays great attention to detail, goes above and beyond during her visits, and our dogs clearly love her. We hope Lily can be a regular part of our dogs lives.

House Sitting
Sharon, 2021-09-08

Lily went over and above what was required. She communicated daily and I came home to a better trained dog. My house was also spotless. I can't recommend her enough. My mind was at ease on my vacation. Priceless!
