I am an active, outgoing and friendly person who loves to play, walk and care for dogs! I am located on ST. PETE BEACH and provide services to the NEARBY BEACH COMMUNITIES ONLY including ST. PETE BEACH, PASS-A-GRILLE, TIERRA VERDE, SUNSET BEACH, TREASURE ISLAND and MADEIRA BEACH for our local beach residents and vacationing visitors. (I'm sorry, due to proximity challenges and familiarity, I do not provide service "off the beach" or in the city - only on the nearby beaches noted.) Whether you need daily or occasional walks, drop-in's or house sitting with your pup(s), I can help! House sitting is an excellent alternative to boarding your pet because it allows the pup to stay in their regular routine and environment, and is much safer and more comfortable for them. During a housesitting stay, I will stay the night with your pet(s), provide up to 3 daily walks / outside breaks, food, water & play / attention time.
If you are visiting the beach from out of the area and need care for your pet while staying at one of our fine pet-friendly beach hotels, please consider my services! I can provide walks or drop-in's for your pet during your stay, while you go out and play!
When I visit with your pet, I provide lots of attention and affection. If they have a favorite toy, I like to give them plenty of playtime! I will take them to their favorite place to walk, and give them their favorite treat (if permissible). I also provide you with great photos and a summary of our visit as well. Some of my clients like my photos so much, they've had them framed!
I always try to go above and beyond to assure the pups I care for are happy, content and comfortable during my visit as well as when I leave. I will go out of my way to provide the best service for you including complimentary little extras like gathering your mail, receiving deliveries, putting out / putting away the trash and watering plants. I try to make myself as available as possible so I'm always ready when you need me. I look forward to meeting you and your pup(s) soon!
When you request a booking, I will respond quickly to confirm availability, and then set up a complimentary meet & greet so we can all get to know each other prior to your pet's visit.
Our pets are part of our families and we want the best care possible for them. I thank you in advance for trusting in me to provide that to them! :)
About Me: I began dog sitting in 2015 when my friend's career suddenly required him to travel extensively, resulting in the need for someone to help provide care for his senior Shepherd mix. He was in a bind, trusted me and knew how well his dog and I got along, so I began taking care of him while he was away. I’ve been around dogs my entire life. As a child we had a Schnauzer/Poodle mix named Snoopy who was very sweet and lovable. I learned at a very young age how to care for, communicate with and train dogs.
I now have a nine-year-old Shih-Poo named Rocky. He is a total sweetheart, very smart and very loyal. He follows me wherever I go when I'm home. Like many dogs, he loves to go for walks and always enjoys a good belly rub!
To get started, submit your request for the service and dates preferred. Once I receive your booking request, we will schedule a complimentary Meet & Greet so we can all get familiar with one another prior to the scheduled visits.
