I’m an experienced pet-sitter and house-sitter who has been at this full time since 2012, part-time off and on for decades. I offer house sitting, pet sitting (live in), dog walking, drop-in cat care, and even hobby farm or B&B/Inn management. I've worked with cats, dogs, fish, birds, horses, ponies, goats, lizards over the past several years.
Prices start at $40 per day, which includes care for one pet: generally it’s
$10 per additional pet but it varies by the amount of care the pets need. Fish, for instance, are $10 a tank, not $10 each. Additional responsibilities are negotiable, and long-term bookings are eligible for a discount.
About me: responsible, non-smoking, non-partying Vanity Fair cybersecurity journalist. Former innkeeper, former horse and dog trainer. Human and veterinary first aid training. Self-starter. Pet-sitting is the perfect side hustle for a journalist, as it gets me out of the house several times a day.
References out the wazoo after years of doing this professionally. Experience and local references specifically in Ottawa, Ashton, Calabogie, Wilno, Nepean, the Okanagan, Victoria, Vancouver, Tofino, and Powell River, BC.
Everything was up to and actually exceeded our expectations. Lorraine took great care of our sometimes difficult pup, can't rate her high enough!!
This worked very well
