She watched a few animals she hadn't previously pet sat for. She gained valuable experience, conquered a phobia she had and took excellent care of my household for a week. Everyone was well fed, loved and everything was clean. Would definitely hire her again πŸ’œπŸΈπŸ·πŸΆπŸ±πŸ πŸ’πŸ₯πŸ’œ

We love Jane of Paws and Purr Petcare. She is our daily dog walker for work days. She is timely and reliable and our dog, Leo loves her. She regularly leaves us notes of the visit. She charges a price that doesn't break the bank. We would use her for pet sitting as well. I definitely recommend Jane!

I thought my hyper springer spaniel would be too much for her, but she really surprised me! She does so well with him! He is so excited when she comes by for the walk. She sends pictures from the walk. She has helped to train him too so now when I do have to walk him he is so much more calm. So thankful that I found her!

About

As a former police officer, you know your pets and home are in good hands. You can also count on me to do my due diligence in making sure my assistants are also qualified to care for your pets. I carry an additional insurance rider that ensures your belongings are covered. You will be well informed when you return home of everything that went on with your pets and home, and if there are any concerns that you may need to be aware of. The animals of course!! :-) I love all animals, and they all have unique personalities. I get satisfaction in knowing that they are given loving care while their owners are away. It's not just the neighbor who fills the food and water bowl, then leaves. Animals need more than sustenance. It is very stressful for animals when their owners don't return when expected in the evening after work like they normally do. So when I see how calm the pet becomes when I arrive on a regular schedule, and how they interact with me, then I know I have become the saving angle in their eyes. That give me great satisfaction.

About

First, let me tell you a little about myself. I have been working with almost every type of pet and know each very well. I own two dogs at the house and have two horses boarded. I have been in the 4-H program for more than 8 years, working with animals. In high school, I took a technical education training program and got certified to work as a veterinary assistant/technician with both large and small animals. I love all animals and take great care of all of them. I want to work with animals and continue to work with them throughout my lifetime. I am attending Southwestern College in Chula Vista, then transferring to a university. I love what I do and am very trustworthy, hardworking, and responsible. Now, what do I have to offer? I cannot have at-home pet sitting, but I am more than willing to go to your place and watch over your pet and home. I can walk, feed, water, and groom your dog; pick up their mess in the backyard; administer medications/vaccines, etc. I can also pick up your mail, make sure the house is okay, water the plants, etc. Basically, I do anything and everything.

About

I provide loving care for your precious pets. I provide in-home pet sitting, dog walking, dog park excursions and hikes, mid-day puppy breaks and pet taxi services. Hello, my name is Sarah, and I have been an animal advocate for most of my life. There is nothing that brings me greater joy than spending my days in the company of animals. My experience includes working as a volunteer dog walker at Greenhill Humane Society, where I found my precious Shih Tzu, Patches. I am also the proud owner of Ponyo the Pug and Cleopatra the Cat. I have cared for many animals and rescued a few along the way. In May 2006, I started offering dog walking and pet sitting services to the community. Being so passionate about animals, I have found it to be a quite enjoyable work! My two dogs, Patches and Ponyo, love making new animal friends as well! My services begin with a visit to your home to meet you and your pets. I will get all of the information I need so that you will feel safe and secure in knowing that your pet family is in good hands while you're at work or play. If you're traveling, you can use my services as an alternative to kenneling. I will do much more than provide your animals with food and water. I will spend quality time with your pet family, giving them the exercise and play they need! So, if you don't want to leave your pet in a boarding kennel, have limited time to exercise your energetic dog or need a pet taxi to the vet or groomer, give me a call! I am bonded and insured for your peace of mind. We are also the makers of Patches Pure and Simple. It's a homemade dog and cat food that's delivered right to your door! Our food is prepared daily with the freshest seasonal ingredients! Our food is nutritionally complete and meets the standards of the AAFCO.

Details
We have a 7 y/o Dobie who loves attention and his walks. We live in South La Mesa just in a very hilly area. If someone is up for a vigorous workout great but if not there is a nice flatter area you can drive to just 2 minutes from our house. Please let me know if someone might be interested and what rate would be for 2 days a week. Thanks, Dana
