Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Just to give you a little background, I've been pet/house sitting, since I retired, six years ago. One of my more challenging home sitting assignments was in Virginia, where I took care of a ranch, with 12 horses, 3 dogs and 3 cats, every other week, for two years. I really loved this experience, so I decided to pursue more opportunities. Prior to retiring, I worked in university property management, building inspection and the real estate business.
I love caring for both cats and dogs, as well as farm animals. Throughout my life, I've had my own cats and dogs. Pets love being with me, because I truly love spending time with them. I know that you want someone who will actually spend time and play with your pets while you're away, not just feed them. I understand that they get bored, they miss you and need the daily interaction and attention. I don't smoke, but if you do, that isn't a problem for me.
I love people who have a great sense of humor and a positive attitude about life. I'm a very responsible person and really understand how difficult it is to leave your pets for an extended period of time.
Rest assured that I will make your pets happy, while you're away and I'll meticulously maintain your home. As a former building inspector, I'll keep a watchful eye on your home and property. I enjoy keeping busy, so feel free to make a list of chores you need done.
Regarding fees, my first visit is free, to give you, and your pets, the opportunity to get to know me. Then, I'll let you decide the fee, for my next visit. A big part of the benefit for me, is in visiting new locations.
I would welcome the opportunity to talk to you, either on the phone, or, I also have an online video conferencing account. If I'm in your area, I'll be happy to come by, to meet you in person.
I hope you'll consider contacting me. I'm free to travel anywhere in the US. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my profile. Good luck finding the best person for your needs....I hope it's me!
