About Vera

Hello! I'm Vera, a 36 y/r analyst. I moved to York 4 years ago and definitely love the city. Working from home allows me the flexibility to pursue my passion for animals alongside my career.

I am a former dog owner, i have a 7 y/r poodle who now lives with my parents. My love for animals extends beyond just ownership; I’m dedicated to their well-being, making me a reliable, trustworthy, and empathetic pet sitter. My schedule allows me availability before 9 am and after 5 pm on workdays, with full availability on weekends. However, I can also make midday visits during the workweek if necessary.

Services Provided:

• Drop-in Visits: feeding according to your schedule and instructions, refilling their water, cleaning bowls and litter tray.

Availability: Workdays before 9 am and after 5 pm, and full days on weekends.

• House Sitting: I provide overnight care in your home, ensuring your pet’s routine is uninterrupted.

Availability: Daily, with the flexibility to stay up to three days.

During house sitting, I will ensure all entry points are secured and manage any alarm systems effectively, maintaining a low profile to keep the house appearing lived in. I'll familiarize myself with emergency procedures and contacts, including local services and veterinarians, while respecting your privacy and avoiding restricted areas. Regular updates can be provided for peace of mind, ensuring no unauthorized visitors enter and maintaining cleanliness for your pet’s safety and your home’s security.

• Dog Walking: To keep your pet healthy and active, I offer dog walking services.

Availability: Workdays before 9 am and after 5 pm, and full days on weekends.

Length: Up to an hour.

Location: I usually prefer walking dogs in areas close by for convenience, ensuring they have a consistent and familiar route. However, I am always happy to take them to greener spaces where they can enjoy a more varied and stimulating environment. I’m open to suggestions if you have a preferred location or park in mind!

I prioritize maintaining excellent communication with you to ensure your pet’s needs are met consistently and thoroughly.

Why I Want to Be a Pet Sitter:

My love for dogs and cats is immense, yet, due to my current living situation in a rental where pets are not allowed, I’ve been unable to have my own. Becoming a pet sitter offers me a wonderful opportunity to spend time with animals and take care of them, fulfilling both my passion and their needs. It’s more than a job to me; it’s a way to connect with animals and support pet owners in ensuring their furry friends receive the best care possible.

What you can expect from me:

-Reliable and flexible

- Respectful of yours and your pet's home, needs and preferences

- Daily updates via Whatsapp, either text, photos or video calls

- Happy to play, fuss and feed your furbaby treats, as little or as much as you like per visit.

Vera was fantastic with our cats. They decided to pull out all their tricks bringing in birds and beetles, she dealt with the clearing up with humour, gave us comprehensive updates and photos, and we came back to a clean house and happy cats. Could not ask for more! Will definitely use Vera again :)

Vera was our first sitter booked via Pawshake and we weren’t sure what to expect but we were absolutely delighted with Vera. Our cat took to her immediately and almost seemed disappointed when we came home! We would definitely book Vera again.
