Hi! Welcome to my profile, I am Shawn & I offer House Sitting
/Pet sitting in YOUR HOME. Where your pets can remain at home with their familiar and comfortable surroundings without the added stress of going to a boarding kennel or being taken with or dropped off elsewhere. I am a mom to two girls ages 20 & 16 and a wife to my husband for 25 years. We own an Australian Shepherd who is a rescue, and have opened our home to three amazing cats whom have been rescued off the streets and given a 2nd chance. (actually my own neighborhood - people move & leave their pets behind) I also am active in basic obedience & Agility (for fun). I am a professional pet sitter and have been for well over 25 years.
Services I offer:
Pet sitting in YOUR HOME
Drop in Visits /(Come & Go)
OVERNIGHTS & DAY stays, depending on what your pets needs are.
All entailed - dog-cat checks, house checks, medication/insulin injections, throw the ball/Frisbee, clean up after your pet, feed, water, bring in the mail, picking up the newspaper, putting out the garbage/recycling bins. Turning lights on-off. Just sitting with your pet and giving attention. Your pets are treated as MY pets (family) while you are away. They will be spoiled and have lots of love & care while you are gone.
I have experience in all breeds but have had and sit for the majority of these breeds (Golden Retrievers, Boxers, Pit Bulls, Shelties, Australian Sheperds etc.), special needs (Deaf, Blind) & (separation anxiety).
I accept ALL breeds of dogs. Even the so called bully breeds.
Medications - I am experienced in Insulin injections, giving pills, major surgery recovery, following veterinarians rules & procedures. I am also certified in pet first aid.
I stay in contact with you through pictures & communication over texting while you are away.
Some clients have dogs, cats, rabbits, fish & other animals. Ive recently had a few with horses & goats. BUT, I do NOT service birds, snakes or spiders.
PLEASE check my calendar to plan your going away dates, I update every 2-3 days.
I get asked this question a lot so, I feel it's worth sharing. What is my longest I have pet sat for? 6months. A Client had to leave the country for a job, so I stayed with their dog in their house for the 6months. So, I can cover from 1 day up to 6months comfortably with no issues as long as your pet is in good health. The majority of my stays are 2-4weeks at a time.
I will watch up to 2 dogs for 1 price, any dogs over 2 in household, I charge $10 per dog.
