Pet Sitter in Lexington

I'm Kristyn and I'd love to host your dog next time you go out of town or just need someone to watch them for you, Im your lady. My Story: I am a previous correctional officer, I took care of criminals for two years. during those years I realized I shouldn't be taking care of humans, I need to be taking care of animals that can not take care of them selves. this makes me happy and I believe this is my calling. I eventually want to open a kennel/ shelter for dogs and cats. I just want to be around as many animals as possible and learn as much as I can. I have been sitting dogs through rover all summer and I love it, now trying to build my own cliental Dog Experience: I have two dogs I currently own, a black lab and a German shepherd lab mix. I often take care of my friends dogs which consist of a bulldog, collie, pit bull, chihuahua, and another lab. I have fostered 2 dogs from A Diamond in The Ruff in Winchester KY for a few weeks. As an animal control officer you walk, take care, and somewhat train all kinds of dogs as small as a Chihuahua to as big as Great Danes. My personal Animals: I have two dogs of my own a black lab that is three years old and a German shepherd lab mix that is 8 months. My previous roommate had a bulldog collie mix and a tea cup chihuahua that I raised since they were 6 weeks old. My lab I rescued when he was 6 months and my German shepherd lab I rescued when he was 7 months. I love animals, I have successfully trained three puppies and one grown dog. I have a loving compassionate nature that dogs and animals in general are attracted to. Animals make me happy and I return the favor to them. Dog Handling Approach: I always introduce yourself sideways not full on so you don't threaten them. let them small the back of your hand. while this is going on look at their stance, ears, tail these are all good ways to know how a dog is feeling; if they are excited, happy, anxious, threatened ect. dogs are attracted to movement so when you first meet a dog be calm with slow motions and a soft voice not to startle them. Misbehaving dogs: A "no can" a can with pennies or stones that you can shake in front of them when they misbehave. For pullers I hold the leash right next to me so they cant pull and say heel every time they try to pull. About My Services My rate is $25 per night / Puppies under 8 months- $35 / night I prefer to sit the following sizes of dogs: small (1-15 lbs) medium (15-40 lbs), large (41-100 lbs), giant (100 lbs).
