Hi there, I love animals. I have always had a pet in my home. Recently however my incredible sidekick passed away and I miss being around dogs. I'm currently a masters of social work student which requires a lot of work and study so doing a pet gig is the best option for me as I need flexibility. Also, I would like to do work that allows me to go for a walk!
I have lots of experience with small to large dog breeds. I have always had bichon frises but I have taken care of yorkies, dauschaunds, cane corsos, bouvier de flandres and rottweillers. I have taken care of cats for long periods of time in others homes as well.
If you choose to go with dog boarding services, my home has all wooden floors and a few carpet rugs, it is comfortable and clean. The basement is finished. The backyard is a medium to large size but there is a large patio and pool that covers most of the grass. If dog boarding, I will not take them to the backyard if requested. The neighborhood has parks and nice trails to go for walks.
I have minor allergies to dogs that shed so I would prefer to board non-shedding/hypoallergenic dog breeds. As well for liability issues I will not care for aggressive dogs (human or dog focused). While I cannot board shedding dogs, I am able to do walking or home check services to shedding pets.
Stephanie was everything we had hoped for in a dog sitter for our Trevi. As this was the first time we had ever left him with someone outside of the family, we were naturally a bit nervous not knowing what to expect. Right from the start, Stephanie was extremely professional and informative, providing all the information we needed in order to prepare for Trevi's stay with her. She was great with him from the very moment we dropped him off and immediately made him feel at home despite his nervousness when he first arrived. Stephanie was gracious enough to provide us with updates and photos during his stay and it was obvious how happy and at ease he was. I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone who needs a reliable, mature and capable person to sit with their pet. We are very grateful to her for making this experience so positive for us all.
Stephanie was amazing! She always had great communication and updated pictures everyday to let me know how my dog was doing and always made sure he had his daily walks. She treated him like he was a part of her family and that's something I really appreciate, not to mention how welcoming her family was as well. Definitely recommend her as a dog sitter!
I've taken care of a dog (bichon frise's) for my entire life. I know an adequate amount of information on pet behaviour. I have experience administering oral and ear medication to dogs. While I do have experience taking care of cats, I have never clipped their nails. I know some dog training techniques. While I have experience in training, I will not board dogs that are not potty trained. I understand there can be accidents with marking territory in a new place, but would prefer that the dogs I board are generally trained not to go inside the house.
