Hi there! My name is Sophie and I am so excited for the chance to meet and take care of your dogs or other pets! Before anything, I absolutely love animals and have been missing them in my life. My apartment does not allow for animals, so I am looking for any excuse to be around them :)
Experience - I have had cats throughout my life and a bird when I was a child. I currently have two crazy kittens at home in the United States named Fred and George. I have been a pet and house sitter since I was 16 and have looked after a number of animals: cats, dogs, horses, ferrets, birds, stick bugs, etc. I have had the opportunity to look after kittens and puppies a few weeks after birth as well as dogs in old age. I am totally comfortable giving medications or handling animals with special needs, please just tell me anything that will make your pet feel as comfortable and cared for as possible!
I also have been a foster parent to a number of stray cats and worked with dogs in shelters, so I understand that every animal has different needs. While I love to play and cuddle, not every animal will open up as quickly and I adjust my interactions based on what your animal will be comfortable with!
Services - I am open to doing housesitting, home visits, and dog walking. I love playing, cuddling, and running around with different animals. I can feed, administer medicine, or even wash your dogs according to whatever schedule you give me. I have given animals oral pills, dressed cuts, and dealt with eye/ear drops before. I'm open to making our walks or home visits as personalized as your animal might need. I can also send as many photos/videos as you might need (or just want ☺️) to stay in touch!!
Walks - I am already going for long walks most days, so would love to include your dogs! I'm very careful to watch when dogs start eating random things and make sure other dogs are friendly before they interact. I know dogs can get a little excited, especially at the beginning of the walk, so I'm great at matching their energy and calming them down. I always bring water, bags, and a small bag of treats (with your permission of course!)
Overall, I want to be around animals as much as possible. My schedule is incredibly flexible so I can adjust my day to accommodate walks/visits at almost any time. I will take care of and love any animal like it is my own. I know how hard it is to be sure your pet is safe and cared for, so I am here to help and happy to have a free first meeting for you to get to know me!
Sophie took good care of my bunny. I highly reccommend her!
Sophie stayed with Cheems for a day and everything went well! Communication was easy and I got updates about Cheems from time to time.
