Hello, my name is Patrick and I just love animals. Always have always will. I have a cat named molly. She is my life. She is a rescue cat that has never got over her fear of strangers. I used to pet sit on my own back in London Ontario.I play with the cats or dogs a minimum of 30 minutes, On house visits. I'm retired so I can spend as much time as required with my new furry friends to make them at ease before I leave for the night. I normally water the flowers while I'm there and send a good night picture of your loved ones for you each night so you know they are safe and happy. I have taken care of turtles and a bearded dragon and a pond in the back yard. I have taken care of fish aquariums bunnies and 1 parrot. I have taken care of cats and dogs who have medical conditions. I treat all animals and reptiles like my own and love them all for they are all special.
I do in-home care as well if that's what you need but limit it to 1 per night as I don't want them fighting in the night. Special circumstances apply if your animal is in a cage at night or the whole time. I'm 43 years old and as I mentioned earlier I'm retired. I live alone with my cat molly. I am available at all times. I only allow 1 dog a day 2 if from the same family for in home visits. All guests are allowed to cuddle on my bed with me. I would be home the entire night I had a guest to ensure the well-being of the guest. I do not have a back yard but I do have a large balcony they can join me on for fresh air. I follow the service expectations agreement. I do over night visits as well for both cats and dogs I can san stay at your house for 24 hour period. I can stay for long periods of time as well. I want to make your pet as comfortable as possible while you are away on your trip or at work. I have nothing to do but give love to your pet and provide a safe and comfortable environment or go to your house if they are more comfortable there with directions from you. I have been with pawshake now for over 1 and a half year and have been doing this on my own for over 5 years back home in London Ontario. I am dedicated, reliable, trustworthy and kind. I take my job seriously and with me, you will know just by meeting me you have made the right choice. As for my 1 complaint I will admit to my mistake but her dog did receive the medicine required on time as directed. He simply got and extra meal from.
I look forward to meeting new furry friends and helping others in need.
Patrick was an absolute professional start to finish! He did home service for my 3 German shepherd dogs.
He did a thorough walk through of the house, grounds, and safety features for the dogs. By the end of the walk through, my senior dog was cuddled up to him which is quite rare indeed 🙂
Throughout his service stay, he sent multiple pictures and updates everyday. Anything that may have been an issue was immediately addressed, and there were no issues overall.
I highly recommend Patrick and will be re- hiring him for future dog-sitting.
Patrick was on time and gentle with my dog. I also chose Patrick because of the review I read about him being able to follow written instructions to water garden plants over many days.I had Patrick visit my hosue before hand to meet my 14 year old dog and I explained to him how to feed and give mediciine to my dog, However, for the 2 nights Patrick stayed, he did not refer to the hand written notes, left on the counter with the medication, on how to give the medicine and feed my dog. I made rice and meat packages (left in the refigerator) for every meal specifically so my dog would eat and take his medicine and for it to be very easy for Patrick to give.. There was more than enough food for 2 days, but because the instructions were not read, Patrick ran out of rice suppliment for my dog. Patrick looked through the freezers and found some more rice for him. It was not until I got home that Patrick noticed the hand written instructions on the counter.
