Hello, my name is Aleisha. I am a 34 year old elementary school counsellor in North Vancouver. I have been housesitting and petsitting since I was in high school, and have been doing it more professionally since university. Over the years, I have been many interesting places, and have had the privilege of caring for so many wonderful doggies amd kitties. I genuinely love all animals and volunteered at the local SPCA in Aldergrove for years when I was a little girl. At one point I worked at a petstore so I have some experience with more exotic animals like parrots, reptiles, and saltwater fish. If your pet has special needs or behavioural challenges that likely won't phase me. I don't mind giving medicines or diabetes injections as needed.
Currently, I own a chihuahua/xolo and she is a gem. There are very few people I feel comfortable leaving my baby with so I understand the anxiety that can come with finding a petsitter. A lot of my time ouside of work is spent with Hannah and keeping her busy. Together we like to go on hikes and mountain biking in the summer, or play parking garage ball in the winter (she is basically almost bald and hates the snow). She often travels with me (some of my Air BnB reviews mention her) but has yet to come on a housesit.
I have a reputation for leaving the houses I sit in a cleaner condition than what I found them in, and people frequently tell me that their pets miss me after I go. I have had many repeat positions. I am quiet and non-smoking. My last few housesits have been in California- both Swall Meadows and Burbank.
