I'm Niru, and I'm a graduate student at the University of Alberta.
Obviously, I enjoy spending time with animals! Growing up, I mostly had cats around because my mother adores them, but I've never missed out on an opportunity to play with or take care of my friends' dogs. Whenever I spend some time with them, I always come out feeling a little happier, and that's the main reason I'm here.
I have classes for a few hours on a few days of the week, but whenever I'm available, I would love to offer your pets my company and care. If they like to play, I can play, or if they like to be left alone, I can just keep an eye on them and let them do their thing. I live literally next to Mill Creek, so there's plenty of space for walks around here (although if your pet has a preferred route, that's fine too), and I'm also happy to do drop-ins if that's all you need. The duration of the walks can be tailored according to your needs, but in general, I'd prefer 30 minute walks. Drop-ins would also be about 30 to 60 minutes each, unless you have different requirements. During drop-ins, I will feed your pet, clean up after them, take them out if needed and give them lots of pets and cuddles.
I'm happy to do 24 hour house-sits as well, but if the arrangement is going to be for several days, I would obviously have to leave the house every now and then to attend classes, get groceries and so on. At the end of the day, I want to be sure that I'm doing right by you and your pets, so I'm happy to tailor my services to your needs. I am fully vaccinated and am happy to keep my mask on at all times. Do get in touch with me if I can be of any help!
Please note that I'm not a professional trainer- I'm just a person who loves the company of animals and will be happy to help look after them!
Niru is a great sitter, has communicated consistently and gave updates, following all instructions. She’s reliable and trustworthy. One of the socially awkward cats warmed up to her, best review one can get. I will definitely use her services when I have to leave my cats again!
I reached out to Nirupama to walk my puppy who had been recently bit by another dog and she was very willing to provide the extra care needed to ensure my puppy was taken care of prior to her leaving. I appreciate that she was willing to do a little extra to ensure he was happy and safe. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you! ❤
