About me: I am a 25-year-old, who is taking 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 7-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 have a part-time job 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.
My partner and I asked Tanis to look after our two cats for a week, as we were away on holiday. She was nothing short of excellent with them. She looked after them very well, and even sent us photos each day. She was very pleasant and made us feel comfortable leaving them in her care. Would definitely recommend her to anybody in need. Thanks Tanis!
Tanis was an excellent care giver for our two dogs. They were both happy and well-exercised when we got home. Our house was spotless as well. Tanis sent us photos daily with little updates and we're really happy with her service. Thank you Tanis!
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.
