We’re pleased to welcome Linda to the team! Linda will be working as a pet sitter in the Northwest Metro suburbs of the Twin Cities including Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, New Hope, Plymouth, Robbinsdale, and Golden Valley. She has a lot of experience working with both dogs and cats, but she can tell you more in her own words:
I have been a foster and volunteer for a local rescue, and currently share my home with two German Shepherd mixes: Doc, a GSD/Chow Chow mix, who is training to be a Therapy Dog, and Bena, a sassy senior Belgian Malinois/GSD. Before buying a house with a yard, I was a cat person: I had kittens to seniors, healthy cats to ill cats, and even a diabetic, so I am practiced in administering insulin and other meds. I have fostered post-surgery dogs, shy dogs, flight risk dogs, and until his passing in December, I owned a dog with Irritable Bowel Disease who received B12 injections and a myriad of meds and supplements. I am certified in Pet CPR by the Red Cross. My background before I fell in love with dog walking and pet sitting included operations management in higher education, retail sales management, human resources, and marketing. I recently tried going back to the corporate world, but missed working with animals too much.
