House sitter in San Antonio, Texas

Starting in my late teens, I have had the privilege of looking after the much-loved pets belonging to the family friends living in my neighborhood. In my high school years, I frequently enjoyed afternoons and evenings looking after both large and small dogs for neighbors who worked long hours in the corporate realm. Within the past three years, I have added house-sitting to my repertoire, which has turned out to be an excellent transition for the four-legged friends who feel more comfortable in their own home than they would in that of a stranger's. I have the most experience with small dogs in multiples (specifically Schnauzers and Shih-Tsus) and single big dogs, but that being said, the more the merrier! I have also begun looking after cats in their owners' homes - something that I am extremely excited about, as I also enjoy cats but have not had the opportunity to own one since my childhood. Being a lifelong equestrian, I have ample experience caring for horses and ponies as well as dogs and cats. While I do not have experience in caring for reptiles, guinea pigs, or mice, I am willing to learn!

As I care for the pets of the homeowner whose house I am looking after, I take out the trash, check the mail, care for the plants in the yard, clean dishes, and almost anything else the homeowner needs done while they are away, to keep the household running and the pets cared for despite their owners' absence. It's my pleasure to walk the dogs daily if the owner wishes, and, as I am a neat-freak, I clean kitty boxes twice a day at minimum. Pets' water is refreshed every day, and I like to clean their food bowls at least once a day (I increase the cleaning frequency if the pets are given wet food, as it can dry and leave a crusty residue that, while I'm sure is appetizing for them, I don't feel comfortable leaving on the bowl). I am the kind of girl who makes plans to plan, and the more specific you can be with me about what you would need done on a daily basis, the better!

With both house-sitting and pet-sitting, I prefer to meet you at least once beforehand so that we can get to know each other a little bit and go over expectations and responsibilities. This is especially important to me if you have pets; I feel very strongly about introducing myself to them in an environment in which their person is present and in their own home, for as stressless an experience as possible for the pets. It will also give me an opportunity to get to know you, the things you like, how you like your house kept, and get any extra information such as veterinary numbers, or meet your neighbors with you present so that those who live around you feel safer knowing that they have met your house-sitter.

It would be my absolute pleasure to house-sit for you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
