About Elia

Hi there,

My name is Elia and I am super excited to be offering my pet sitting services after time away from offering my petting services professionally.

For the last few years I have been working on my own business and in my spare time pet sitting for friends and family. In fact, as I am writing this, I am sitting in a house that a friend and I are pet/house sitting for her cat while she's away for the long weekend here in Victoria, BC. Lovely coincidence and happenstance.

After the past few years of self-exploration, self-development and building my own business, I am working as a coach, healer and space holder for people wanting to find their true selves, live in harmony with their truth and purpose.

As I have been building, learning, exploring and sharing myself through this way of service, I have always found myself desiring a pet, wanting to work with animals and loving meeting new furry friends along my many walks in the forest, parks and watersides of nature. I love to be outdoors (one of my favourite parks in Vancouver, BC - Pacific Spirit Park pictured in my photos) so there is always a time when I meet someone's lovely companion, we share a gleeful hello and then are off on each of our own merry ways.

My most significant pet sitting experience comes from offering my own pet sitting services professionally while living in town outside Toronto for a summer of lakeside vibes and fun in a new city. I also have had the priviledge of pet sitting my friend's cats and dogs (the cat in the picture album is my friend's who I house sat while he was away for about a month), learning to take care of very young puppies (one of them, the red merle australian shepherds in my photos) and also having had the priviledge of getting to know my boyfriend's lovely dog Mofetta, who is a high energy breed mix that shares so much love, daily excitement for our adventures and lots of good training dog training experience (pictured in in my photos as me sitting in a chair sharing some love with her).

With all this experience under my belt and being in a place in my life where I want to have fun offering pet sitting on the side, I feel wholly prepared to begin house sitting with your lovely animal friends. I am available only to pet sit in the home of you, as the pet owner, due to my home not being available for keeping animals overnight.

During each pet sitting placement I treat your pet as my own, feeding them their regular meals, giving them any medication or supplements if needed, playing with them, caring for them, sharing cuddles and going for a morning and evening walk/run (30-45 min each) in the nearby park. I truly enjoy bonding, getting to know and having a great time with the animals that I get to take care of for the time we have together. My schedule is quite flexible so I am available for a variety of lengths of time, long and short term, as my schedule allows so if you're needing just a weekend or a weeklong pet sitter who's loving, caring and truly wants to give your animals a lovely time while you're gone, you've come to the right place.

When it comes to the specifics of what you're needing for your individual pet, I make sure that I am able to offer you what you need. That is something that we are able to discuss to make sure we are on the same page and your furry family friend is taken care of properly in my care. I usually have a set of questions that I ask to make sure I have all the information I need ahead of time to ensure everything runs smoothly while you're gone and enjoying your time away too.

As a bonus that I like to add to my pet sitting services, I enjoy sharing love and healing energy with the care of the animals that I am taking care of. I do intuitive energy healing with my close friends, clients and have begun practicing more with animals that I meet along my pet sitting and animal encounters which has now become a part of my pet sitting toolbelt as I love to incorporate it as gift of to your animals from me to them.

I hope my story and sharing of what I have to offer has helped you to see if I am good fit for you as your pet sitter for whatever needs of your time away that you have. If you do find my profile resonates with what you're looking for, please feel free to send me a message with any other questions that you might have regarding taking care of your furry friend.

Wishing you a lovely day and looking forward to hearing from you.

Love,

Elia
