Pet sitter Job in Union City, New Jersey

I am looking for a compassionate, responsible, trustworthy person to walk my dog 5 days/week, in the afternoon - but my schedule changes every week - it could be Mon-Fri half the time, but other weeks include weekends and 2 weekdays off - and the time needed may vary between 12 noon to 2pm depending on the day. I need someone who is reliable and can accommodate this changing schedule. My dog is a 6 year old hound mix, medium (33 lbs) girl named Ruby. She is my baby, so I really need to trust the person who will be caring for her. She is very sweet and loves all humans, but is not great with other dogs. I like to call her "aggressively friendly" because she is excited about every person she sees and runs to them, wiggles and jumps all over them as if everyone is her best friend. But, she does not like most dogs, and will pretend to be friendly just to get close to them and then snap. So, she needs to be kept away from dogs that she doesn't know. I need someone who is extra aware of surroundings and comfortable with crossing streets if necessary to stay away from other dogs. She also has a liver disease and is on a special diet. Because of this, if she eats things from the ground she can get very sick. So, it's super important to keep a close eye on her to make sure she's not gobbling something up. She likes to sniff a lot and that is ok, I let her sniff as much as she likes and do not rush her along. For me, walks are all about her and I want her to be happy, so I am looking for someone who will do the same. Part of the job is also feeding her lunch, but it's very simple, just kibble. I have 2 cats as well, so the person should not be allergic to cats. No care for the cats is required, except maybe just cuddling them a bit :) They are very friendly and affectionate. I am open to people who don't have experience. The main thing is compassion and being very aware and reliable. Please reach out if this is something that interests you! Thank you.
