***NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS RIGHT NOW***
My name is Devon and am a huuuge animal lover. :D
I grew up on an acreage just outside Sherwood Park. We had horses, dogs, cats, gerbils, budgies, and even goats at one point. I absolutely loved it! I enjoy the peace and quiet of an acreage and the nature surrounding it. When I was a young teen I put a sign up in our subdivision for pet sitting and had a few wonderful clients I cared for. And that's when my Petsitting career started I guess.
I lived in Australia for nearly 5 years and that's where I started with Pawshake. I was able to switch everything over when I moved back home and its been so great to be able to meet so many wonderful furry personalities while I wait to eventually get my own pets again. :)
I have experience with all sorts of dogs of all ages including Great Danes, Collies, Labradors, Rottweillers, Golden Retreivers, Terriers (Fox, Wheaten, Jack Russell, etc) , Huskies, Schnauzers, Spaniels, Pointers, Pugs, Chihuahua's, Beagles, etc. I have even worked at a doggy daycare for a short time! (
Devon was GREAT! We have 2 dogs and 4 outside cats, 2 are diabetic and require medication by needle twice a day and Devon got the job done! The administering of medication in this manner was new to Devon but she did it with no problem. I will definitely have Devon house sit for us again!
Devon is great, reliable and the kitties love her!
In Canada, I looked after people's pets and took care of any other house duties (such as watering plants, collecting mail, etc) for them while they were away. I have experience with all sorts of dogs, cats, fish, birds, and some rodents (gerbils, guinea pigs, etc) of all ages.
I've worked in a pet store which gave me more knowledge about a variety of pets. I've also worked at a doggy day-care for a short time that has allowed me to really get to know the quirks and personality traits of different breeds of dogs.
I have also fostered dogs through H.A.A.R.T (Homeless and Abused Animal Rescue Team) when I lived in Perth, Western Australia.
And I currently volunteer at WILDNorth, and the Alberta Society for Injured Birds of Prey, in Edmonton and Strathcona County respectively.
I have a Diploma in Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation.
