My name is Caitlyn, I have studied and lived in Toronto for a little over eight years, but grew up in a small town called Erin. Growing up, I have owned four dogs of four different breeds (3 have been medium/large breeds and one small breed) and played a major role in caring for them, as they were incredibly significant to our family. That being said, living on my own in the city without these dogs has been difficult at times because caring for these pets becomes such an integral part of your life. Now, I am inspired to become a member of the Pawshake community. I would love to step in to care for your furry family members when you feel obligated to leave them at home. As much as I would love to take care of a pet of my own, my landlords prohibit me from owning a cat or dog due to their severe allergies. As an aspiring pet owner I would love to get to know your pet because as I get to know your pet I will quickly learn to be sensitive to your animal's unique cues, and needs.
I currently work part-time as a Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE), in this role I work a split shift to provide before-and-after-school care. Meaning that during the day between 10 am - 2 pm I am readily available to travel and attend to your pet during the day. I love my job, but sometimes I need a break, or even just a walk. That walk would be much more enjoyable if I had your pet to accompany me.
In terms of pet/house sitting, if you require my services for overnight I need a minimum of 1 week's notice before the date that you need me for, but 2 weeks notice is highly preferred. To sum up, I love pets and their role in our lives so much that I have even stepped in and cared for roommate's pets when their needs were being neglected, as I am not someone who can simply leave an animals needs unmet (Note: the picture of the cat is said roomate's maine coon). If you consider me as your pet sitter and provide me with all of the important information about your animals; in my case I find that the more details on your pet's care and personality the better, I will ensure that your pets are well-cared for.
Looking forward to meeting you and your pets!

I would definitely recommend Caitlyn to anyone. Although our two cats have a very complicated feeding schedule, she went above and beyond to make sure that they get everything on time, and with the correct food. She also kept our place spotless after house sitting for us. Because of her, we were able to spend quality time away with our family without having to worry about the wellbeing and happiness of our cats and home. Thanks Caitlyn!
Caitlyn is awesome! Pickles has the best time with her. She is reliable, easy to communicate with and a great dog walker!
