I am a frequent traveler who misses the comfort of home when staying in hotels. I'm on the road a lot and would love to enjoy the serenity and privacy of your home while caring for it and/or your pets. I am registered and have all 5 star reviews on where I have completed 5 sits and am on one as I write this ad. Here is one review:
"FBrown6886X is an excellent house/pet sitter. She came the night before our trip to get to know our pet crew. I felt very comfortable leaving my pets and my home in her care while we were on vacation. She gave the animals lots of love and provided regular updates. We would welcome her back anytime."
Currently I have one dog, a 9 year old Boxer/Staffie mix. He was rescued from the side of the road about 8 years ago. It's hard to be away from him, but he is in the best care ever so I don't worry.The dog love of my life, Dolly, a sweet, stoic, loyal Rottie mix recently crossed the rainbow bridge. I've also had a Black Lab (Mojo), Weimaraner (Pogo), Terrier mix (Brownie) and another Rottie Mix (Bart) who have also crossed the rainbow bridge. Cats - the most recent were Mog, Abigail and Darby (2 calicos and a grey tabby.) Along the way, I've also had guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, lovebirds and even a tarantula.
I've been through obedience training with two of my dogs - I learned a lot - and I've trained several others without it:-) The training gave me a much better understanding of how dogs think/respond along with the tools to manage myself while helping the dogs. It helped me have much more rewarding and successful interactions! With two very "food driven" dogs - the Weim and the Boxer mix , I am very alert about keeping temptations out of reach. Cats and I get along great - I am good at reading their energy somehow and tend to get along well with them also.
I've also dealt with a variety of health conditions between the pets (ear infections, arthritis, heart murmur) so I am used to giving medication to dogs and cats and - when needed - encouragement to eat.
I've owned rental and vacation property so I understand how much it means to you to have someone responsible, caring and clean in your home. When I stay in someone else's home, I am very mindful of leaving it as I found it and reporting any issues or problems that arose during my stay.
If you are interested in discussing your home and pet care needs, I would love to speak with you. I can send you a Zoom link or schedule a call at a mutually convenient time. If I am in your area on another sit or trip (Greensboro, NC, The VIllages, FL; Boston, MA; and Long Beach, CA are all regular locations for me) I am happy to meet up with you ahead of time and/or put you in touch with other home/pet owners I've worked with.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!
