About me: I am a 27-year-old, who recently graduated with a degree in education to become a junior high or high school teacher! In my spare time, I like to go on hikes, play soccer, volunteer, and ski. I have a 9-year-old lab-border collie cross named Storm who is the love of my life and we go on a lot of walks and runs together. Her breed requires a lot of exercise so I understand the need for dogs to get out for a walk or run daily! I worked at Pet Planet which has educated me on pet nutrition and products so if there are any questions on products I would be happy to provide some product recommendations!
Why I want to be a pet sitter and dog walker: I have a passion for animals and their welfare. I am an advocate for their wellbeing and have done a fair bit of volunteering in a Veterinarian’s office shadowing vets and taking part in the daily tasks that happen there. I have also volunteered at the Calgary Humane society walking dogs. Both of these volunteer experiences contribute to why I would love the opportunity to take care of your pets by taking them for walks or house sitting in your home.
I am a responsible, reliable, punctual, loving, caring person who strives to ensure pets are well looked after. I know how much my dog means to me which is why I will put in the time to spend with your pets. My passion for animals is my motivation to do this work.
I offer dog walks and house sitting in your home. In my previous house-sitting experiences, I have found dogs are much more comfortable in their own home than mine which is why I only offer the house sitting in your home. It is important to me that your pet is well taken care of and is as comfortable as possible.
Tanis was absolutely incredible! We immediately felt at ease when we met her. She took amazing care of our dogs, and home. It was spotless when I returned home. We also appreciated the photos and frequent updates.
Tanis was great and we will definitely be requesting her services in the future. She house sat (stayed in our home) with our two dogs (one of which is elderly and required special treatment) and our two cats. She texted us daily updates and pictures of our fur babies and also brought up any concerns. They received lots of walks and cuddles and we could tell they just loved her (it's like they didn't even miss us!), it was nice to know they were in good hands and we didn't have to worry. Thank you, Tanis, and we look forward to working with you in the future!
For my education degree to be a high school and junior high teacher I am required to get police checks and abuse checks every year in order to be able to participate in my practicums throughout the school year.
