-TAKING A BREAK -
I am a huge animal lover and had several experiences with adult dogs, puppies, and rodents. I am currently a volunteer with SOSD and Pawsitive League, and had fostered 4 dogs before I adopted my own! I am an Year 3 NUS undergraduate seeking an enjoyable side income on PawShake.
I understand that leaving your precious pets with somebody else can be anxiety-provoking, as such I have written out details of my services, what you can expect, and what i expect. Please read through carefully about the services I offer. Feel free to chat with me to discuss further details!
Services I provide:
1. Dog Walking [1hr]
Pet Care: Walking and spending time with the dog. I am comfortable with small to large size (e.g. golden retriever) dogs, reactive or aggressive dogs must be made know to me prior to engagement. To make sure your pet has my upmost attention when walking, I will only take a maximum of one large/medium-sized dog at a time, or 2 small-sized dog at a time. As a mongrel owner, I had gone through basic obedience training with my dog. You can be rest assured that your pet's walking training habits can be re-enforced and maintained. No off lead dog play unless allowed by the owner in an appropriate area (e.g. dog parks). Flexible cancellation for wet weather.
What the owner can expect: Dog is left in an area stipulated by the owner upon return. House/apartment locked up and secured after the booking and while out on walks. Keys will be returned at the end of the booking as instructed by the owner.
What I expect: Easy and safe access to the house/apartment. Leash for walking and poop bags. Any delay of more than 15 mins for the dog drop-off time which is on the liability of the owner (E.g. nobody is home to open the door ect..), monetary compensation should be made to me - pro-rated price based on duration.
2. Home Visits [1 hour]
3. House Sitting [24 hours]
Pet Care: Price includes care of up to 3 pets. Pet's routine must be discussed in details (through phone call, chat, or meet-up). Any pet's daily necessities (e.g. food, water, bed, toys, cleaning equipment) shall be provided by the owner.
What the owner can expect: I am comfortable with all types of pets, including reactive or aggressive pets (please inform me), be assured that your pets will have my upmost attention whenever they want to play and practice their tricks! Mess made by pets shall be cleaned up by me. Pets will not be left alone for more than 2 hours, I will only leave the house to pack food back up to eat or to walk the pets. Number of short walks or long walks can be discussed during the duration of the house visits. Ideally, I should be able to access the area or rooms that the pet has access to ensure proper supervision. Bathing or cleaning of pet's cages can be discussed. Collection of mail and taking out garbage are part of the service, however, other non-pet related housework (mopping, sweeping, washing dishes) are prohibited unless agreed upon. The house or apartment will be secured after leaving, and keys will be returned as instructed by the owner. For home petting services, I understand that safety and security is very important. As a pet sitter, I will bring minimal items, and also offer for a bag and pocket check once I enter and leave the house (if anybody is available to check). I will ensure to be contactable at all times during the house sitting/visit, updates of the pets can be provided to the owner regularly if requested.
What I expect: Basic supplies (water, toilet paper, electricity - to charge phone) should be available for me. The pets and me should have access to a cool, sheltered area to stay in for the duration of the house visit. If the owner has a security camera inside or outside the house, they need to disclose this to the sitter. If I am not the only person in the house during the agreed duration, I should be informed prior to the house sitting and I should have constant access (keys) to leave the house in cases of emergencies.
Services not offered: Dog boarding and doggy day care at my house.

Grace walked my Labrador Ross for 2 weeks and I was very happy with her services. She is conscientious and her love for dogs shows clearly. She enjoyed walking Ross and taking pictures showing me where they were and how Ross was during the walk. I would def use Grace’s services again and nightly recommend her.
