Looking for that "Special Kind Loving Responsible Petsitter" in East Transcona


Pet Owner in Winnipeg

Looking for that Special person who gets it and genuinely loves animals and is extremely patient, kind and loving ALWAYS and RESPONSIBLE at all times. Being safety conscious and vigilant with this is extremely important also. ABOUT US and OUR FUR BABIES We have 2 small dogs (chihuahuas). They are both boys and from same litter :) 8 yrs old one is long haired and the other short haired. They mean a whole lot to us :) One of our little guys had a MAJOR surgery which took a real toll on him mostly (but us also!) He has been healing and it took one year to get as good as it gets :). So, it is IMPERATIVE that we have someone very very serious about keeping our gates and fences up at all times and very vigilant about keeping them safe this way. So there are instructions for their safety that MUST be followed at all times. * TEMPERAMENT of OUR PUPS Our new sitter will require a little patience and understanding. Our pups will be VERY barky at first, with all people that are new to them. They dont automatically trust when meeting someone so be prepared for the barking :) Understanding that having our dogs get to know, trust, and warm up to you will take time and is a process :) However after that (the initial few visits) with patience kindness and a few treats ...they warm up and are seriously AWESOME and AMAZING and will be your best friend! * PETSITTER - we really need someone who is wonderful and KIND at ALL TIMES and in EVERY situation. . Someone who does NOT punish or REPRIMAND EVER (NEVER - no matter how little the punishment) but rather, believes in positive reinforcement. * A person who will always BE THERE at our HOME when they say they will and be very good with following also feeding and other instructions in the house while we are on holiday. * OUR NEEDS - HOLIDAY PET SITTING This btwn 3-10 days at most at a time (would be live in, and include overnights and some day time.) If you work part time, don't work, can work / do work from home, retired, semi retired, .. that's all good :) Prefer to find someone interested in petsitting for the long haul as it does take awhile for our babies to warm up to a new petsitter. * PET VISITS - When we are in town, we sometimes need a petsitter to visit our two little guys them up, give them positive attention and affection, let them out (depending on weather), give them a couple treats and clean up a bit if needed etc ... These occasional visits ... would be mid day arrival anytime between 12:00 - 1:00 pm (latest) and last for about one hour. * WHAT WE OFFER * Appropriate pay for services rendered :) * No sudden bookings - planned dates and visits in advance - unless sudden and unforeseen * Great communication skills and good people. * Long term p/t pet sitter work relationship, if goes well HOLIDAY PETSITTING - We go away typically between 4-7 times a year. Each time away lasts approx. 3-10 days. AFTERNOON PET VISITS when we are in town - Can be anywhere between 2-10 times a months. * Treated respectfully - looking to develop good petsitter relationship * ABOUT YOU - Important * Require solid references (any additional documentation a HUGE PLUS). * General idea of your availability * What area you live in city * Do you drive and have car? Thx for reading ...
