About Mikaela

Hi there!

I'm Mikaela, but you can call me Mika. I have always been an animal lover, especially dogs! I grew up with 2 mini dachshunds, and I'm not sure I have ever loved anything more. Growing up with dogs taught me responsibility from a young age. As soon as I was old enough I started house/dog sitting for friends and family. I have been pet/house sitting for almost 8 years. I have experience caring for a large variety of dog breeds, ages, and sizes, as well as multiple animals in the same household. I was a volunteer with the Edmonton Humane Society's Dog Program for 2 years which also gave me experience with a large variety of dogs breeds, ages and behaviours.

When I petsit I ensure to keep your furry friend as well cared for as if they were my own, aka lots of pets and cuddles!

Why do I petsit? Because I love animals but I do not have the space yet to have my own! I firmly believe that no matter how badly I want to own a pet, if I do not have adequate space (or time) to properly care for them then I must wait. Petsitting allows me to get that time with animals that I currently don't have on my own!

My services include care for pets in the owners home, as such you are also getting a house sitter! You can trust me to keep both your animals and your home in the best care possible. I do general cleaning at houses I stay at including: vacuuming, dusting, full bathroom clean upon leaving, countertop wipedowns, mopping, and laundry of any used linens. I can also care for house plants as needed.

As for the pets, if you have dogs I will walk them as often as you would like (typically when I dogsit I walk them at least once a day but try for morning and night). I will take them outside first thing in the morning, and first thing when I return home if I am out. They will always have a full water dish and food will be administered according to their regular eating schedule. I am not a treat giver unless instructed to do so and I never give animals human food (again unless instructed to do so). I have experience administering medication to dogs (no injections though).

If you do not need a sitter, I also offer dog walking (availability dependent). Walks can be as long as requested (minimum of

45 minutes) and can also include dog park trips for a small extra fee.
