Hello! My name is Alana (she/her) and as can be seen from my photos, I love pets of all types, breeds, ages and sizes! I am currently getting my masters degree at UU in Gender Studies and am looking for a way fill in the gaps of leaving my own pets back at home (I am from Washington DC). I have had my own pets since I was 4 and have been pet sitting since the age of 13 or so. I have had two rescue dogs so understand how to handle dogs who are more timid and also have assisted in raising/ training a puppy since it was 8 weeks old.
I was an avid volunteer with my local animal shelter and have experience with aquatic animals, small rodents, cats and dogs. If hired, I will devote all my time to your pet when I am with them- having had multiple pets (guineapigs, dogs and a fish) in my life, I know each dog has their own personality and I love to draw it out through walks, playtime and showing them affection.
The services I offer are dog walking- up to an hour if the owner wants a bit longer of an excursion for their dog and up to three dogs at a time. When dog walking, I will leave dogs in stipulated area upon return and return keys/ other forms of home security as instructed. I also offer home visits, up to 3 hours. As stated, I have experience with many animals and can assist in feeding, cleaning, and playing with a cat, aquatic creature, guinea pig or other small rodents. During home visits, I am also able to help with basic household chores such as taking out trash, bringing in mail, doing dishes etc.
I also offer house sitting. Since I am in school full-time, I cannot be with the dog 24/7 however my classes are only four days a week, about 2 hours each day so I would only be absent for brief periods of time. While house sitting, I can assist with the care of multiple animals of various breeds and will ensure each pet has the exercise, nutrition and affection they desrve. I live in a student studio apartment so cannot board pets however I have a bike and am flexible to watch after/ sleep somewhere to watch the pet if the owner chooses.
My class schedule changes every few months or so however, as mentioned, I am in class four days a week, for about 2-3 hours a day so am generally quite flexible. Reach out and I will come up with a schedule that works! I am learning Dutch but know basic words in terms of training and commands. I am also fluent in Spanish. I have no restrictions in terms of the dogs I will work with and look forward to meeting your furry friend!
Alana looked after my cat, it went very well. Communication was clear, she sent some pictures to keep me posted and Cuatro was doing fine when we returned. Thanks Alana!
Alana is great, we left her with our cats for 2 weeks while out of the country. This is the longest we have gone away before and the cats did great with her. She sent photos and updates about the cats and their health. :)
