I have been using Pawshake for the past year and a half now and I am confident in my level of experience and what to expect for different dogs or puppies. I am now working in an after school care so I am out the house 2.30-6pm on weekdays, however if your dog can be left for a short while am still happy to dogsit and board, and of course have full availability weekends so even if your dog cannot be left this long would still be haply to take them weekends and holidays.
I am 28 years old, and have graduated in Applied Social Studies, with experience in childcare as well as other types of care. My experience of doing care agency work has required me to be flexible, and means i can be sent to work with different types of services. This means that I have acquired a lot of skills in being patient, compassionate, understanding and a good communicator/listener which are skills also useful in working with pets.
I am good at communicating with owners and always happy to share photos to let them see how their pup is doing. For the time being I am really enjoying petsitting hence have no plans to work full time hours, therefore I have plenty of time to spend at home or with guest pets.
I have a beautiful frenchie called lorne and also have experience helping with my mums golden retriever as well as friends dogs such as pugs, collies, border terriers, and chihuahuas. Lorne is a friendly pup who loves to play as well as snuggle up. He is very happy to make some new dog friends as he is a social boy.
We live next to Kelvingrove park so the park is our back garden, however we also have a few quieter areas and parks around if that is better suited for your pup. We love to go for walks or find somewhere quiet to relax.
Please keep in mind although I live in quite a large spacious flat it is 2 floors up, so if your dog is not confident on stairs then I am most likely not the best fit for you however if they are small/medium i have no problem carrying them up and down the stairs.
Buster seemed very settled and content when we picked him up
Sophie updated me throughout the weekend how he was doing
Would deffo book sophie again 😁
thank you Sophie, dogs came back and were a bit sulky for a while 😂 - the change and a pal did them a whole lot of good.
I am creative so I am quite good at coming up with new activities and games to play and I am good at problem solving.
Additionally my work in care has helped me build many relevent skills in being caring and compassionate as well as a strong leader.
