As a University of Alberta graduate with extra time on my hands I thought what better way to spend this time than with animals! I am a true animal lover and am open to every species, my home or yours, walks, check ins, overnights- I’m happy to do it all! I also have a vehicle so I am completely open to picking up/dropping off and so on. My partner, Joey, and I live in a house with a huge fully fenced backyard with secure gate that will surely suit any dogs (or other animals) needs! Pets will be sleeping with us in the basement and have ample space to relax and chill out as this space is very open concept and separate from the rest of the house. We share the house (not basement) with 3 roommates and 2 very friendly and food-driven cats, but do not fear if your pet doesn’t do well with cats, they do not have access to where your guest will be staying.
I am very flexible regarding length or number of walks. My work schedule is also very flexible and I am home a combination of mornings/afternoons/evenings with all my shifts being significantly less than 8hrs. Together with my partner’s schedule, your pet will never be alone for more than 3 hours at a time. This aspect is extremely important to us as we only want to provide the best care for your pet- this is a vacation for them too after all!! We have no vacations planned for the coming months so I have full availability! I have over 10 years of exotics experience and many years of cat/dog experience.
I also volunteer at the Edmonton Humane Society (and have done so for over 5 years). Dependability and reliability are two of the qualities that I pride myself on, and that I know are so important when you are looking for someone to take care of your pet. I have pet sitted for 4 families regularly in the past and since some of them have moved away I am looking to take on some new pets! Your pet’s safety and comfort is my top priority, and I completely understand how hard it is to leave them. I assure you I will love your pet as if it were my own! Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have- feel free to contact me with any concerns! I look forward to meeting you and your fur or scale (or anything in between) baby!
Taylor was great! After the meet and greet she had some well-considered suggestions for our old pup Archer (12+ years), which we appreciated. We had great confidence in Taylor from start to finish and she did not disappoint. Of course we enjoyed receiving a few pictures of the old dude relaxing at Taylor's while we were away - We know Archer must have been relaxed enough throughout as he was super chill upon coming back home which is not generally the case with regular boarding. Thanks, Taylor!
