I was raised with two big dogs, one of which we still own. They were both huge (a golden retriever and a mix between a german and belgian shepherd) and adopted. They didn't get any special training, since we didn't get them as puppies, so I'm used to dogs pulling heavy on a walk. I am also used to reactive dogs. However, I am smaller so anything above 40kg is not possible. Pet sitting is something I enjoy a lot, since I love love love all animals, and I feel like they are the perfect companions - they don't talk, but they make you feel safe and less lonely with their presence. I love to read and one of my favourite hobbies back home was reading while one of the dogs laid on top of me like a very heavy blanket. While I mostly have experience with dogs, I'm also a big fan of cats and love playing with them (scratching doesn't bother me) and would love to meet any of the animals you own. There really is no motivation other than that I looove animals and just started studying art so would love a bit of extra cash.
I do home visits, dog walking and house sitting. For home visits and house sitting I am willing to take out the trash, water plants, whatever household activity needs to be done (besides caring for the pet of course). Since I am a student, I am free in the afternoons and evenings - I have class every day 9am-4pm, but I am completely free on the weekends. I can do house sitting for longer periods, as long as the pet is fine with me being gone for the time I spend at the academy. When home alone, I always check that everything is properly locked and after the stay I make sure I left everything as I found it. I adapt to the needs of the pet and the owners wishes - I am used to walking the dog twice a day for thirty minutes, but each dog is different. I like going on walks through the park and I think it's good for the dogs to be in nature. I expect good communication from the owners about the pet's needs - I can administer oral medication and I can brush the pet if necessary, however I do not bathe them or groom them in any other way (like clip nails etc). If I am taught by the owners on how to train the pet, then I can also do that.
