About Sophie

I have always loved and cared for pets, including dogs, cats, and even hedgehogs. I will care for your pet as if it were my own. I can even send you daily or even hourly updates if requested, so that you have peace of mind that everything is going smoothly.

I currently work at an elementary school, so I am available 24/7 during the summer and holiday breaks, as well as spring break. When I do work, I work 8:45 am until 3:15 pm, so I will be with your pet(s) at all time except during my work hours. If you are close by to my workplace (St Norbert), I may be able to stop by during my lunch break, too.

I only offer care in your own home, as I have 2 cats in my home that do not do well with new/frequently changing pets. However, this allows me to give your pets my full and undivided attention.

I love to stimulate pets both mentally and physically.

For dogs, this usually entails food-motivated games such as treat puzzles, walks, and lots of playtime (tug-a-war, fetch, etc).

For cats, this generally involves lots of different toys, including string toys, balls, springs, and of course, catnip toys. I find that playing with them in this manner does a great job at stimulating them both mentally and physically.

After playtime, and especially before bedtime, I like to calm pets down with a cuddle or nap session, depending on the type of animal (likes/dislikes cuddling with people). I let the pet calm down in a manner that is comfortable for them.

My original dog sitter became unavailable during a trip. Sophie was available and I am glad she was. She was able to take over. All over text which isn't easy. Communication was good. She took really good care of my 2 dogs and sent me daily reports. Sophie really delivered quality care. Service was excellent, I came home to 2 very happy and excited dogs.
