Hello! I hope everyone is staying safe and hanging in there as we get through this crazy time.
I am currently still providing pet sitting in the pets house during the pandemic. I have a lot of anxiety about covid so I am very cautious about things and health and safety is my top priority for all. I stay home almost 24/7 except to get groceries/supplies once a week and one daily walk outside.
I normally do a big clean before the end of the stay to make sure you are coming home to a fresh and clean home, and now during covid I add extra sanitation of surfaces.
*STARTING MARCH 2021 I will be able to provide pet sitting in my own home. I am moving to MillWoods into a 2bd ground floor condo. Pictures will be availble once I am moved. There is no fenced yard but there is lots of green space close by and nice walking paths. *
I have spent 10 years working with animals from dog daycares in BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, as well as being a vet assistant at vet clinics in BC and Alberta. After having too many horrible experiences working for people who can’t respect their employees and the animals I started my own business providing in home pet care. I have the most experience working with dogs, especially fearful, timid, and anxious dogs, as well as dogs that are not dog friendly, and I have loved getting to take care of cats and have become and huge cat lover over the last few years. I have also looked after a snake, turtles, lizards, and rodents. I love all animals and am not afraid to get my hands dirty.
If your pet is diabetic or on any medication, I am trained and able to administer any medication needed. I have post-surgical care experience, basic grooming skills, nail clipping, wrinkle and ear cleaning, among many other skills. I use positive training techniques with all the animals I work with and carry a pet first aid kit on all walks, as well as water and a water bowl. Animals are very reactive to energy, so I consciously work to stay calm and am mindful of the animal’s energy to better help the pets needs.
I have a second business making paracord collars and leashes, and during the summer I am at the st.albert farmers market every Saturday from around 7am-4pm. Otherwise I have a very flexible schedule and can accommodate pets that need a lot of care.
After spending two years living in a self-converted camper van I am now living in a small studio across from NAIT. I love alternative living options and hope to have my own tiny house on some land one day and foster dogs.
Our dogs love Brenda! Brenda is responsive and friendly, and the dogs are always happy to see her.
We were a little nervous about using pawshake and having a stranger come into our house while we weren’t home. After we had a meet and greet we felt relieved. Brenda is a gem for our little pup. She is someone we trust with our dog and we know he is in good, loving hands when he is with her. He learns lots from her and he looks forward to their afternoons together. She takes the time to give us a update everyday after their visit and provided us with some notes to help as we are first time dog owners. I would highly recommend her! We have already rebooked as the first booking went great! Thank you Brenda
