My name is Cynthia and I am a huge animal lover. Since becoming a freelance pet caretaker in spring 2018, I have worked with a large range of cats and dogs, including puppies, kittens, anxious pets, rescues, those requiring oral medications, and elderly dogs and cats. I am very happy to send pictures/video and updates throughout your time away. I am hoping to put my care and attentive skills to good use taking care of your fluffy loved ones.
I would love nothing more than to pet your cat by a rainy window or walk with your dog along a trail! I am mature and responsible, with lots of love and care to share. I offer pet sitting in your home, 15/30/45/60 minute dog walks, and house visits of generally 30 minutes, though that is flexible.
I am fluent in both canine and feline body language, and I know how positively animals respond to a warm, calm, respectful presence. Your pets can peacefully relax in their own home and you can relax knowing they are being well taken care of.
I currently work 8am-2pm Monday to Friday as a dog walker bringing groups of dogs on adventure hikes in the North Shore and am extending my animal skills and caring nature into cat and dog care during my non-work hours. This does restrict which clients I can accept for housesitting (pets must be okay alone at home for 6ish hours depending on commute, I can spend the majority of my non-work time at home with your lovely pet if that is preferable).
I accept clients throughout all of Vancouver, as well as parts of North Vancouver, Richmond, and Burnaby.
Given the current situation, I have adopted some policies for housesitting, home visits, and dog walking to help reduce the potential spread of the virus. I have training in infection control and sanitary hygiene procedures.
- remove outerwear at the door and wash my hands thoroughly immediately upon entering
- wash/disinfect doorknobs, light switches, litter scoop handles, alarm buttons, anything else I might touch before leaving
- happily adopt an alternative cleaning/disinfecting procedure if you have one you prefer
- inform you immediately if I am feeling unwell, offer a full refund, and assist in finding a replacement sitter/walker
Please feel free to reach out with inquiries, I am happy to meet up virtually or over the phone with no commitments to make sure it's a good fit.
Cynthia was excellent with our two kitties! She was quick with her communication and very friendly making our interactions easy and pleasant! She sent us daily pictures and videos so we knew our babies were happy and well cared for! Our home was found on our return exactly as we had left it! We’d highly recommend Cynthia!
Cynthia was very polite and friendly and my cat became friendly with her very quickly considering he can be shy at first! She sent daily photos and updates which was super helpful as well! I am so happy we found her on this app!
