Hello :)

My name is Ameera and I have more than 10 years of experience looking after a wide range of animals: all sized dogs, dogs with behavioural issues, rescue cats, chickens, birds, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs and providing medication. My work schedule is very flexible and I am always available everyday (morning, afternoon, nights), weekends, last minute and holidays. I provide house visits and dog walks for anyone who lives within the GTA. My husband and I are proud parents to a female border collie and 4 rescue cats. I love animals dearly and volunteer with the Mississauga Humane Society and help stray animals find their forever home....despite my Masters in Criminology, if I could go back in time and redo my education, I would have gotten a degree inveterinaryscience. I am always expanding on my knowledge on animals, and have recently completed and certified in PET CPR and First Aid.

I hope by choosing me as your pet sitter, you will see for yourself how much i dearly love animals and feel rest assured that every animal I'm with is shown respect, friendship and love.

I look forward to meeting you and your fur family :) Below you can read a detailed description of what to expect for the services I provide.

--------------

What You Can Expect With Every Pet Sitting House Visit For Cats, Small Animals and/or Dogs:

-Each house visit, I will be in the home for a minimum of 20 minutes depending on the number of animals, cleaning and feeding routine. I do not have a maximum amount of time that I'll be in the home as each case might be different- I'll stay as long as needed.

-I have a very flexible work schedule that allows me to conduct house visits every single morning, evening, afternoon, weeknights, holidays and weekends.

-Your pet is played with and gets exercise/walked

-Given fresh food and water daily

-Change the cat/small animal litter minimum once a day and refill when necessary

-Given lots of attention with kisses and hugs

-Attend to your mail and/or water plants in the house.

-Daily text messages or emails of updates on your pet: how the day went, photos and/or if something cute happened while you were away :)

-Incase your pet needs more food or you do not have time to purchase it, I will gladly do this for you

What You Can Expect With Every Dog Walk:

-Each dog walk is a minimum of 30minutes up to one hour depending on the level of exercise your little one needs

-I am available to walk your dog every morning, afternoon or evening depending on what their usual walking routine is.

-I will come into the house and give some cuddle time upon greeting your little one and send you a text message that I have arrived.

-Your little one(s) will be leashed up, and if you do not have waste bags I will bring some with me, and we will go around the neighbourhood and do some exploring together. I allow dogs to be themselves- ie. if they are sniffers, I do not pull the dog to continue walking but allow them to sniff away. I will always make sure that your dog has their leash on, pick up any waste and dispose of it during the walk, and to ensure that your dog is safe the entire time. If there is a nearby dog park and your dog is trained to be off leash, and with prior permission, then your dog and I will go spend some time playing at the park.

-I will take photos of the walk and send them to you. -I will inform you when I entered and left the house and/or the time your animal's walk started and ended for comfort and safety reasons.

-I have a very flexible work schedule that allows me to conduct house visits every single morning, evening, afternoon, weeknights, holidays and weekends.

Our two cats were looked after by Ameera for close to a week and she was a terrific pet sitter. It is so very obvious that she loves animals, I could feel this 5 minutes after meeting her. She is very knowledgeable, conscientious and constantly communicated with us while we were away so that we had piece of mind and could relax.

I highly recommend Ameera to look after your fur babies.

Ameera did an excellent job of looking after our two cats for a week in February. Our cats are uncooperative at the best of times but Ameera took the time to let them get comfortable enough to enjoy their meals. Couldn't ask for better!
