While I have just recently made it a decision to make pet sitting a full time job, I have pet sat on and off through out my life for about 5 years.
I believe people's pets are the best parts about their families, and strive to treat and care for each one as if they were my own.
My experience handling animals has spanned for almost my entire life, but didn't really evolve until I was hired by a local animal shelter here, where I have been employed for over a year. I have now been promoted to an Assistant Shelter Manager position.
I am trained in reading animal body language, and low stress handling, as well as positive reinforcement behavior training for dogs and cats. I am also experienced in animal medicinal administration.
The pet services I offer currently are;
Over night pet sitting (any length of time)
Check-ins (potty breaks, litter scooping, play time and socialization etc.)
I always provide up dates to the families I am sitting for, as much as they need, whether it be phone call or texts and picture updates of their animals. :)
I do have refrences for those that ask.
Currently I offer services to those in the Horseheads, Elmira, Big Flats, corning/Painted Post area.
