Indialantic Fl pet sitter loves all breeds of dogs!

As a pet sitter in Indialantic Florida, I have met many breeds of dogs! It’s one of the BEST parts of my business! This Melbourne Beach  Fl pet sitter loves big, small, fluffy, young, old, blonde, brunette; whatever!

Pineapple Pets has not met a dog who has not liked us! Being a dog parent, Nicole is accustomed to dogs and knows “dog speak”. Some dogs, for example, are going to be VERY friendly when we meet! That’s great! Some dogs are going to “check us out”! That’s great! We have no preference. If we did, we wouldn’t be in business!

Imagine you are at a nice restaurant. The manager comes over and asks you to leave before you order. “Why?” you ask. “Because you have brown hair,” or “you are too energetic.” That wouldn’t make sense! Pineapple Pets is NOT that manager! We do not discriminate.

As a Melbourne Beach  Fl dog sitter, I understand that people have questions about breeds of dogs which Pineapple Pets has experience. Here is a list of the breeds/mixed breeds we have experience pampering:

  1. Dachshunds
  2. Yellow Labs
  3. Labradoodles
  4. Goldendoodles
  5. English Mastiffs
  6. Shih Tzus
  7. Poodles
  8. Pit Bull
  9. Boxer
  10. Black Lab
  11. Sheltie
  12. Rat Terrier
  13. Bichon Frise
  14. Australian Shepherds
  15. Golden Retriever
  16. Maltase
  17. Border Collie
  18. Chocolate Lab
  19. Jack Russell Terriers
  20. Yorkie
  21. Pekingese
  22. Lhasa Apso
  23. Samoyeds
  24. Greyhound
  25. Heinz 57

So, don’t be shy! We are not in the business of sending away customers based on height, hair color, or personality. This isn’t a modeling contest, Tyra Banks isn’t an employee!  This Indialantic Fl pet sitter doesn’t judge. J

Melbourne Beach Fl Pet Sitter Tell You Why We Do NOT Walk Dogs in THIS HEAT!

IT’s HOT out this time of year here in Melbourne, Florida! How is anyone supposed to walk their dog in THIS heat? Simple answer: YOU DON’T! This Melbourne Beach Fl pet sitter will tell you why!

  1. The heat can make your dog just as sick as it can make a person. Stay out of the sun between 10-5.
  2. Dogs don’t wear shoes. They walk BAREFOOT on the HOT concrete/asphalt. Try walking barefoot outside for even 2 minutes-NOT FUN!
  3. Pineapple Pets’ Melbourne Beach Fl dog walkers will not risk their health and safety. If we get over-heated, we cannot care for your pets!

 

So, what does an Indialantic Fl pet sitter do instead of walking a dog? Some people may think, “how is my dog going to get exercise?”

  1. Inside mental stimulation. Dogs love lasers, ball rolling, even using paper towel rolls in a hallway.
  2. JUST LIKE people, dogs should not go out for long walk/exercise in the heat. Dogs will still get a potty break and LOTS of inside attention!
  3. Walks before 9 and after 5/6 are fine. Midday walks are not. Dogs still have plenty of time to get exercise from their pet sitter in Melbourne Beach Florida!

Just like you learned in school, SAFETY FIRST. Pets and employees will not be put at risk!

 

Why Did I Become An Indialantic Fl Pet Sitter?

Question: Why did you become a pet sitter in Indialantic Fl?

 

In the words of Henry David Thoreau:

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

People always ask, “Why did you become a Melbourne Beach Fl pet sitter?”

I am not good at math. But, almost two years ago I put two things I love together: owning my own business plus love of pets and that equaled Pineapple Pets. Seeing people’s love of their four-legged friends is one of the most rewarding parts of owning a pet sitting service in Melbourne Beach FL. Pet owners have wonderful stories about how they found their cat behind a dumpster at Wal-Mart and saved its life, or how they saved their dog from being put down at the shelter just in time. Pet owners are a different breed! They are friendly, social, and caring. You know, the type of person with which anyone would WANT to do business!

Yes, I spend a lot of time with dogs and cats (and sometimes tortoises)! I get to walk dogs, play fetch, and pet cute kittens; I also get to own my own business!

Being an Indialantic Fl dog sitter has been so rewarding!

Pet Sitter Melbourne Fl has some ingredients to NOT feed your dogs!

As a pet sitter in Melbourne, Fl I am always curious about what people feed their pets!  A Melbourne FL pet sitter should be aware of what pets are eating while in their care.

Does your pet shave allergies? Stomach issues? Joint problems?

Wheat, oats, potatoes and corn are the top 4 ingredients which dogs are allergic.

  1. Wheat-wheat is used to “bind” ingredients just like bread for humans. Wheat allergies are prevalent in dogs as well as people.
  2. Oats-oats/barley is used for baking treats. Many dogs are allergic.
  3. Potatoes-potatoes are a cheap way for treats to be made and also flare up allergies in dogs.
  4. Corn-corn is of no nutritional value and is used as a filler.

Being a pet sitter Melbourne Fl, I am happy to know what to feed dogs! Many clients ask me about what to feed their pets. Try grain-free/wheat-free treats and food. Palm Bay pet sitter will tell you that is the way to go!

Pet sitter in Melbourne Fl walks dogs in rain, NOT in thunderstorms!!!!!

Being a pet sitter in Melbourne Fl, the safety of our 4-legged clients is our top priority! Since it is summer, there is a LOT of storms in Florida, especially what we call “pop-up” storms that typically happen in the afternoon or early evening. Keeping your pets (especially dogs) protected is very important to us!

This Melbourne Fl pet sitter does NOT walk dogs if the following conditions are present:

  1. Pouring rain to the point where an umbrella does not help! Some rain is okay. Drizzling, sprinkling is fine. When your Melbourne Florida dog walker is getting soaked WITH her umbrella, a dog walk is not going to happen J
  2. High wind. Wind over 20-25 mph (plus rain) means indoor games, or a quick “let out” to go to the bathroom. Some dogs are very scared of storms, and will not even go out into the yard to go to the bathroom.
  3. Lightening. Well, this should not need too much explanation. People and dogs should not be out walking (or at all for that matter) during a lightning storm. No exceptions.

 

A pet sitter in Melbourne Fl should be very careful during these storms. Some rain is okay. Dog walkers in Melbourne Fl should know what precautions to take when bad storms pop up when they are doing pet sits and dog walks.

Some storms pass quickly, while others are over very fast. Pineapple Pets checks the radar, and will of course wait out a storm IF it is passing. If there is a tropical depression or series of thunderstorms, we do our best to get your dog out to quickly go to the bathroom! We appreciate that our clients understand that we value safety of their babies!

Melbourne Fl Pet Sitter Watches Out for Critters!

It’s that time of year! As a Melbourne Fl pet sitter, I see more than just pets in and around people’s homes! Spiders, snakes, and raccoons, oh my! Being a pet sitter in Melbourne Fl, I have to be careful for my sake and the pets’ sake!

Some people are more scared of critters than others! I am not a fan of roaches, but spiders still bother me. If a snake isn’t a black racer, I will run in the other direction! I pulled up to an apartment to pet sit one night, and saw 5-6 raccoons crawling over the dumpster by the building!

Having dogs and cats, I know they all like to chase…..lizards! Being a pet sitter in Palm Bay Fl, I have watched many dogs and cats chasing lizards, catching them, and leaving them in the house for me to clean! YAY.

Although most of these critters are not going to hurt your pet (especially dogs who are outside more), be watchful for you and your pet-this Melbourne Fl pet sitter will!
