Hi, I'm Ipsa!
Dear pet owner, I will ensure that your dog is loved, exercised, healthy and has a pleasant stay when away from you. However, before sending a request, 1. please do check my availability dates, 2. do mention if you are okay/ or not about another dog staying with yours, and 3. do read the full description provided below:
ABOUT ME: I am writing my PhD thesis and spend most of my time at home or the library. I love the animal world. I grew up on a farm with an Alsatian, German- Spitz, cats and rabbits. It has always been on the cards to share life with a canine/feline being in good time,but because of my long travels, I cannot keep a pet on a permanent basis for now. Until then I would love to make friends with yours.
DAY CARE/ BOARDING ENVIRONMENT: My husband and I live in a condo on 1 Ford Avenue. ( Photograph of our living room is uploaded). My apartment has a hilly residential area(not busy at all) behind the condo for leisurely dog walking. There is also a small park next to Holland Village where I can let loose your doggie on a long leash .Occasionally, I go to the Botanic Gardens to read ( there is a direct trail from home) and would be happy to take your dog out too, if he/ she likes to run/ walk. I board a maximum of two small/medium size dogs at a time.
EXPERIENCE: I am quite skilled in handling behavioural problems for instance fear of strangers, extreme shyness/timidity, aloofness, or temperamental natures. So far I have been able to discern when a warm hug and soothing words can melt away fear and when a pet needs time to adjust.
FOOD: Please provide the food that your pet eats on a regular basis- so that there is no change in diet.
HOUSE TRAINING: Do let me know the dos and donts for your pet and I will follow the same. As for litter training- I definitely prefer dogs that are grass trained. Very rarely I take in ageing pets ( only with diapers) who might have difficulty with this or younger ones still not thoroughly grass/litter box trained. ( A few accidents is understandable, but absolute communication about the pet’s litter habits is very much preferred). THE ONE DEFINITE BOUNDARY for me is pooping/peeing on furniture- and I will not be able to take in pets who are not thoroughly litter trained and are used to/ able to climb onto furniture. Also please do ensure that your pet is tick-free.
PICK UP AND DROP: Please note that the charges and services for boarding are only for stay. Your pet will have to be dropped and picked up from my house. If you require help with pick up and drop- I can do so occasionally if it is convenient for me. If this involves taxi commute- I will need to be reimbursed the transportation cost.
Walks, playtime, baths, good with behavioural idiosyncrasies.
