Passionate Animal Lover & Future Vet!

Pet Sitter in Chula Vista

Kat Gonzales at your service! :) As an animal lover, pet owner, and prospective veterinary medicine student, I promise to always try to provide your pet with the best care and shower them with overflowing love when they are with me. No matter if your pup has behavior issues you would like to address and work on, some medical issues that need to be considered and treated, a puppy who needs to work on learning tricks or housebreaking, a senior who just wants some Netflix and some extra TLC, or a dog who needs to run and shed a few pounds, I'm your girl! I am willing to work with all of these things and everything else in between to ensure you of a great experience and great service. I have experience as a dog walker and pet sitter from the company, Oh To Be A Dog which is based in the San Gabriel Valley. It was a very rewarding job going to many homes daily to do drop in visits, walks, pet-sitting, and even sneaking in a few belly rubs and ball throws to our furry clients. I dealt with all sorts of breeds which did include pit bulls, german shepherds, huskies, chihuahuas, and all the in-betweens. I also volunteered at the Pasadena Humane Society as a dog-enrichment volunteer where I provided shelter dogs with lots of love and enrichment toys while enforcing good behavior. I also volunteered at the veterinary clinic there where I was mainly responsible for pre-surgical preparation and post-surgical care. I gained a lot of experience working with many different dogs, cats, and rabbits that ranged in all breeds and all ages.This position helped me realize that my true calling was working with animals and people. Since I moved back to San Diego this summer, I am now volunteering with the San Diego Humane Society with their Wildlife Rehabilitation program, Project Wildlife. I am always trying to learn new skills and expose myself to an array of experiences with different species to help me prepare for my dream job. Growing up as a child, I first began my love for animals with my very first pet- a beautiful black stray cat that my little 4 year old self named, Blackie. From then on, I fell in love with the animal kingdom and became a passionate pet owner of many more pets such as birds, hamsters, fish, turtles, and dogs. As of today, I am a proud mom of a beautiful 13 year old, silly, white Labrador Retriever named Trixie who I have trained, grown up with, and raised since I was 10 years old. I also currently own a beloved scaly 14 year old Red-eared Slider named Zip, who I have taken care of since I was 9 years old. Over the years, I have grown to love these amazing companions and have gained experience not only taking care of my own pets but pet-sitting all sorts of animals for my friends and families. I treat all of these pets as if they were my own, and I truly find joy in establishing that pet-human bond with each of them. I am passionate and dedicated to provide the utmost care and love for our beloved furry family members. Medication Experience Because I have volunteered at the veterinary clinic and because my Trixie is an old pup that has a lot of issues, I have experience administering oral medication, subcutaneous injections, and intramuscular injections. Things to Know! I am currently taking a summer class and will be away from home Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:40 am-12:00pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:40am-3:45pm. I can unfortunately only board/doggy day care calmer puppies and dogs due to my old girl who gets stressed out by energetic pups :/. But that does not apply to any drop-in-visits or dog-walking :).
