Retired Veterinary Technician
My name is Celeste and I provide petting services either in my home or yours. I have always been a huge animal lover and have had my own pets for over 30 years. I first started offering pet sitting services when I was in my early 20s. These were offered to clients at the veterinary clinic that I worked for at the time. I always loved providing a safe and comfortable environment for the pets while their parents were away. That’s what I consider dog and cat owners is parents to their fur babies.
I know how stressful it can be when you are travelling and have to leave your pets at home so finding the right match is really important. Hopefully, I can do that for you so that you can travel and enjoy your vacation without worrying that your pet is being well cared for and loved.
I think it’s important to mention that I am retired from my career as a veterinary technician, most of that career was working emergency medicine in downtown Toronto and working as a critical care veterinary technician at a teaching veterinary college in Prince Edward Island.
I provide 3 walks per day plus they can play in the backyard in between. The length of the walk would normally be 20 to 30 minutes but this is depending on the weather of course and the type of breed. I know with my little guys they don’t do well in extreme heat or poor air quality on their walks so I would take that account with your pet as well.
As I am retired I would be home a good portion of the day with your pet so they would not be lonely. I live by myself with my two little boys, the pugs and they are very social and are willing to share their dog toys with their friends. My dogs sleep in the bed with me and your Pet will be welcomed on the bed as well. I have had some pets come with their crate that they like to sleep in at night and I placed this in the den so that they have lots of peace and quiet for sleeping.
As you will notice from my pictures my backyard is fully fenced in and the gate is secured as I’ve pug proofed it so Spike cannot escape.
If I am providing services in your home my visits will be 30 minutes to an hour in duration. This includes feeding and changing the water bowl, doing a security check on the house and bring in the mail, taking out the garbage for you on garbage day, cleaning of litter box or cages for cats and pocket pets. Of course it goes without saying that they will be played with and provided with some social time, if it is the dog in your home then I would be taking it for at least a half hour walk.
I also like to take pictures and send you updates via text or email or What’s App while you are away so that you are reassured that they are having a good time in your absence.
I am retired so i will be available to provide your pet with lots of attention and love during the day and all through the night.
I have two very friendly dogs who love to have fur friend come over to play or have sleepovers. I believe in treating them as part of my family and they are my surrogate fur babies while in my care.
What Celeste would like to know about your pet:
I would require information as to any behaviour or medical problems that need special attention. As to breed preference I am totally open but would prefer smaller or medium sized dogs the exception to this would be puppies where I would take any breed. Large dog would be considered on a case by case basis depending on age and activity requirements/
En voyage au NB, c'était ma première expérience avec Pawshake, j'ai bien aimé Céleste, elle a su me rassurer en m'envoyant des messages dans la journée.
My dog had a great time at Celeste’s. He was well taken care of, great fenced-in backyard for the dogs, I would be totally comfortable going to Celeste’s again.
