Dog Walker, Pet Caretaker
About this pro
For about a year, I've worked in a veterinary clinic as assistant for doctors and boarding kennel experts. Under their wing, I've learned a lot about proper animal care. I have walked hundreds of dogs, with special needs, and lively as 1 year old Jack Russell. I have followed a regimen with feeding schedules for 20 dogs/cats at a time. I'm fairly experienced with handling animals, including cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits. I've owned multiple dogs and a few ferrets. As far as cats, I recently fell in love with them about 2 years ago when I met my fiancee and her four family cats. I understand that cats take longer to adjust to a new person in their lives, but I'm willing to work with them. I recently graduated with my AA degree, and I will be attending USF for my bachelor's degree. I am 21 years old, responsible, friendly, and polite. I am very patient and an animal lover. I will happily provide a list of references upon request.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I would walk dogs, make sure they are fed and had enough water in their bowl. Play with the dogs/ cats to make sure they are not bored and to make sure they are tired out until the owners got home. If the litter needs changing I shall provide with that as well. As far as ferrets go, I would play with them until their energy ran low so they can sleep through most of the night, and would also change the litter if need be. Any other requests from the owner will be granted as well.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure they know what the person looking to get hired is capable of. Will they adapt to my pet's special need? Will they be punctual? Have they done everything I've asked them to do? All I can say is if they are patient with your pet and caring with them as much as I will be then they are worth your services.
