You go away & have to leave them - that alone can get MANY pets confused, depressed or traumatized
(most animals have some sort of abandonment issues - #1 because they were ripped from their mom & #2 - MANY pets I share loving with are Rescue Pets so they may have extra abandonment issues!)
Put them in a new environment – especially a cramped kennel or a cage
where they can't be free to roam & receive lots of attention like they're used to - or deserve –
or where they're out with other pets if your baby isn't so social -
that can REALLY trigger things in them!
You can lessen that trauma by leaving your loved one(s) in
their OWN environment•home•bed with someone that TRULY cares for them & will give them & your home LOTS of love & positive attention & help them feel SECURE!!!
Animals are such GREAT teachers to us!
#1 – they remind us about what UN-Conditional Love REALLY is!!!
#2 – they’re there for us whenever WE’RE needing some extra lovin’!!!
Usually you don’t have to do a darn thing to get that from them!
Don't they DESERVE that extra loving while you're away??
Have your or your friends past experiences with Pet•House Sitters been less than your expected or worse?
(MANY of the people I've helped have had past negative experiences - hence why most of the people I help are returnees or referrals!)
Isn’t it time everyone has a REALLY POSITIVE experience??!!
It would sure help you have a more joy-filled time away plus make your return something to look forward to vs worrying about them being angry with you for leaving them with someone that didn't care as much si??
TYPE OF PEOPLE I LIKE TO HELP!
Everyone has their what works for them - their style.
Because of my Connection with 4 legged Spirits (in the world) & how much I give -
I WAY PREFER helping families that see their 4 legged friends NOT just as "pets" but as their FAMILY - their Fur Babies!!
I sometimes help people that aren't into that - you just need to let me know ahead of time if you don't want me over-spoiling them!
LOTS OF LOVIN’ • ATTENTION and RESPECT!!!
I GET & RESPECT what ALL they do for us hence I HONOR that in them –
ESPECIALLY in times they’re confused as to why you’re not there for them
MY SPECIALTY - each pet gets
2-10 MASSAGES each day!!
(those that get more massages are the ones that are allowed to come up on the bed with me. Sorry - I do not do people[
And because I get so close to them, that means I'm also checking multiple times a day for Ticks & Fleas!!!
SLEEPING WITH ME IS OK
If they're used to•need to sleep with someone & if it's OK with YOU - I’m TOTALLY ok with that.
It's ALL about helping them feel more secure!!!
(if it is NOT ok with you, I will NOT let them on the bed!!! I don't even let ANY man sleep with me so you KNOW I'm DEDICATED to this!! What's bizarre to me is some have actually felt this was a negative about what I offer. To each their own!!)
I RARELY LEAVE
For over 8 years I've been the author of the well known/widely read Costa Rica information blog LivingLifeInCostaRica.blogspot.com
which is what I'm working on when I'm not lovin' on your babies!
This adds to their feeling secure & your sense of security for your home.
(that blog gets over 28,000 page views a month which makes me quite known around Costa Rica - so I'm not going anywhere & surely not going to do something to jeopardize my reputation!!)
Vicki SPECIALIZES in Pets with
FEARS of FIREWORKS &/or THUNDER
I've developed some VERY SPECIAL skills & techniques that can help pets through
their fears from Fireworks • Thunder & Wind by incorporating:
• Calmness in myself
• Giving them a BIG STURDY FRESH Bone
(to distract them while I'm setting everything up)
• Calming or high energy music
(to distract them. Music choice depends on their reaction)
• Closing all curtains
• Turning all lights on
• Essential Oils
(in the room & on their paws & ears. Only doTerra Therapeutic grade!!)
• Wrapping them TIGHTLY in their blanket &/or
even better - something with your scent on it
• Holding them tightly & close to my heart
• I even have a large Thunder Shirt
we can try.
MY BAG OF TRICKS!!
Depending on what you don't have, I have some goodies I can bring - an AWESOME toy that even a STRONG Teethed Lab puppy & American Bulldog barely made a dent on it (& some other toys) • Grooming Mitt • doTerra Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils & Rescue Remedy • a strong larger Retractable Leash for walks • even a Large Thunder Shirt for when they get scared from Thunder • Fireworks or Wind.
SKYPE CHECK-IN CALLS TO YOU!!
Many OWNERS get their own Separation Anxiety so if you can get on a
computer with Skype.com (I can even help you set it up if you don’t have
it) you can call whenever you want so you can connect with your babies.
THEY'RE NICE & CLEAN WHEN YOU RETURN!
If your dog allows me to, I’ll even give them a nice WARM bath the
day you return so they’re nice & fresh for you!!
(I actually am often
able to get pets that get crazy at bath time - just walk on in!! I've
even done CATS!!! This is with stays 8+ days)
POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT & WORDS
I'm ALL about the POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT•PRAISE -
be it to pets or people!!!
REINFORCEMENT • HELP WITH SKILLS•TRICKS
I've helped MANY puppies (& even older dogs) learn all sorts of new skills•tricks•patterns
(but I'm NOT a professional "Trainer")
I can help keep their schedule be it walking them (actually, because I have a torn meniscus in my knee, this is depending on the environment & animal as I can't really do hills or lively or hard to manage dogs), medications (I've even assisted some VERY ILL "babies" at their end with devoted attention) & I give them EXTRA love/attention by
holding•helping them through the separation.
You want them to be there for you & love on you don't you?
Don't your pets•"Family Members" DESERVE this type of special treatment when you've had to go away?
Don’t feel comfortable with your home sitting there unattended?
Need someone JUST to HOUSE SIT???
I'll come in – stay at your home - & take GOOD care of it
(I rarely go out as I do my work off the internet)?
I’ll respect & watch over your home•castle•possessions
(& trust me, I will NOT go snooping around
[I had a mom do that so I know how that feels!] nor will I have anyone over [unless you've given permission - that that's RARE!!])!
