***** COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS *****
My partner is high risk, so we take Covid-19 very seriously.
Upon arrival and pick-up we ask that masks are worn during interactions.
Please incorporate your dogs routine bathing within a day or so before their scheduled stay.
We are following AHS guidelines, and are in no rush to get back to usual business, until it is safe to do so.
If you, or anyone in your home are having symptoms of Covid-19, please be transparent. We encourage you to get tested so you are able to carry that transparency over to all your loved ones and to keep our communities safe (:
If you have Covid-19 we will not be able to accept your boarding request at that time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
However if you do test positive for Covid-19, I am offering dog walking services. Please inquire for more in-depth details.
I am registered with *The City Of Calgary* with a working permit and a Business Licence.
I am certified in Pet First Aid and Off The Grid safety through WalksN’Wags.
I am a proud member of Pet Sitters International, and a CPPS-Certified Professional Pet Sitter through PSI.
WHAT SERVICES DO I OFFER?
* In-home boarding (my home)
* Dog walking (only private at this time due to covid)
* Drop-in visits (drop-in visits are not a substitute for long term vacations)
* Customizable care to accommodate every need of your animals to bring you peace of mind
* I do not rush my care time with your animal, I stay for the entire time agreed upon
I provide undivided attention and love to your furry family members. Engaging and interacting with animals is very fulfilling to me. I enjoy getting to know your furry loved ones and pay attention to their likes and dislikes. I embrace their quirks and chataceristics, while balancing healthy boundaries of their specified lifestyle.
I am trustworthy, reliable, and a happy worker in whatever the weather forecast holds. Rain, shine, snow, our furry buddies need exercise.
Growing up, I was surrounded by, and was responsible for our animals on our farm. Cats, dogs, sheep, and horses. Awareness, safety, practical knowledge of specific animals, training, and preparation were all key components to ensuring happy healthy productive lives for our family and animals.
I am looking to expand and strengthen my experience within the animal sitting/walking industry as a profession. I am a proud business owner and continue to uphold and build my reputation as a great animal sitter. I would be honoured to have you and your furry buddy be part of this journey.
WHAT TO BRING when BOARDING in my home:
Leash and collar (with up to date tags). Dogs must be licensed with the city.
A harness is always a safe option as well, and is my preferred choice for secure walks.
Their regular dog food. Please try not to change their diet a week or two before our scheduled booking. This can create an upset tummy, on top of possible stress from change of environment, that may prolong these effects.
Their regular dog treats. Due to the heath and safety of each animal under our care, I do not provide treats. I stick to their regular diets.
If they are happy and feel more at home, and safe to have their kennel as an option, please feel free to bring it. Please specify if they are to sleep in their kennel or dog bed, or if they prefer overnight cuddles. I try to create a similar experience to their home and regular lifestyles as much as I can. Dogs love structure and routines, and I am happy to help put your mind, and their minds at ease through simple tasks that create comfort.
MAKE PACKING EASIER:
I supply cozy blankets and comfy dog beds that are sanitized regularly.
I also have food bowls and water dishes that are also sanitized regularly throughout the day.
I have many different kong's, nylabone's, ropes, and dog toys that I am able to sanitize and keep track of. By bringing toys you run the risk of not getting them back in the same state they arrived, or they just might not make it back home. But please feel free to bring them, at your own discretion.
PROOF OF VACCINATION from a veterinarian is required before your pet’s first visit showing immunization against Rabies, Bordetella and Distemper/Parvo. We also GREATLY encourage that your dog is on a regular flea treatment.
If your animal is showing signs of sickness before their stay, for example diarrhea, vomiting, abnormal lethargy, rashes, etc. please understand that it is your responsibility to have a back up plan with a family member or friend who can take care of your pet. Under no circumstance, will I put any other dogs that may also be boarding in our home at risk of getting sick. If your animal is feeling better from being sick, and is on antibiotics or medications that are not their regular medications, I will NOT be able to accept your dog during this time of healing. Your animal must have a clean bill of health in order to stay in my home. Thank you kindly for respecting these boundaries. These rules have been created to enforce a happy and safe environment for every animal under my care.
Our dog was calm and centered when we collected her after her stay with Patricia. This is how I know all her needs were met and above all, that she enjoyed her time there. This is not always the case with dog boarding. Highly recommend her boarding services.
Patricia was so kind and sweet with Honey! She sent lots of cute pictures, and it was obvious that she's just totally cut out to care for pets. I have already booked Honey into stay again, and would highly recommend. She even let Honey sleep in bed with her, and has a backyard that I'm sure any dog will love.
