Any kind petsitting Wellington ONLY

10


10 per visit

I will visit your pets in your home twice a day (early morning and evening) to feed, exercise and check on their general wellbeing while you are away. Love-filled petting and scratches for all animals.
Dogs, cats, rodents, exotics, insects (including honey bees), barnyard critters. House plants, gardens.
SIMBI price is per visit, negotiable.
Midday visits negotiable. Basic dog training (manners and basic commands) negotiable. Certified therapeutic massage for canines negotiable.
Wellington only, I won't have the time to properly care for your pets otherwise, which is unfair to all of us.

Training & Qualifications


Lifetime of pet guardianship. Love and respect for all animals. Dog groomer, trainer, and daycare supervisor for several years. Boarding kennel worker (cats & dogs). Horseless horse and horse projects in 4H for 6 years. Associates degree in equine management. Certified canine therapeutic massage from Rocky Mountain Animal Accupressure and Massage. Various housesitting, barnsitting and petsitting gigs. Second year bee keeper.
I have 11 laying hens, 1 hive of honey bees, a betta, 2 cats and 2 German Shepherds.
I've had horses, freshwater aquariums, parakeets, rodents, a conure (bird), Great Danes, and lived with Chihuahuas, Dachshunds, goldendoodles. I have been around just about every type of dog breed and personality, during my canine career. My Shepherds are working dogs, so I know all about high drive, high energy dogs. Canine stuff (grooming & training) is what I would be doing if it paid the bills.

Availability & Preferences


As needed. I can NOT stay in your home, as I have my own pets to care for.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Melissa Kindt

I work a corporate 8-5 job that pays the bills (barely) with little left over the little things that keep popping up needing fixed, including my own physical body. I believe in a healthy holistic lif...estyle that includes helping the community whether through volunteering, or bartering services and goods locally and affordably. I believe in having a small carbon footprint, which means getting goods and services locally, and helping to make them available as well. I try to offset my world-travel footprint by reducing my use/waste, avoiding poisonous chemicals, and buying/supporting organic and eco-conscious organizations. I'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to materialism. My house is 920 square feet, and in a lot of ways, it's more than I need! I have always had a green thumb and really enjoy the garden. I'm a honey bee and pollinator ambassador and I believe in natural balance in the garden. I try to work with Nature instead of against her. I also love to be around animals and have several years experience grooming and training dogs; riding, training and caring for horses; and basic knowledge of other animals. I have 11 laying hens, 1 (currently empty) hive of honey bees, 2 cats and a working German Shepherd. I'm addicted to orchids, but I am still learning about them. I'm really good at digging into problems and finding solutions. I love researching a topic and learning. I'm a member of Larimer County Search and Rescue, Search and Rescue Dogs of Colorado, and Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States. My K9 - Hawk - is in training and we will be certified in the spring of 2017. We've been training for wilderness air scent, urban/suburban trailing (tracking), human remains detection, article search, and water search.show more
