Dear Ms. Sarah Raines,
I am very excited about the open position of Dog Sitter with Staten Island.
I love dogs and they seem to know it right away. I have a lot of experience working with these animals and they seem to feel relaxed and comfortable when in my care, making this the perfect job for me. I know how to approach these animals in a way that is non-threatening to reduce their anxiety and to help them relax. I can help to maintain the routine they are used to, so they will not get anxious or feel so alone while their owners are away.
I have extensive knowledge concerning the different breeds of dogs and I know how to take care of them properly. I understand that some breeds have special needs and that the age of the dog will play a major role in how to take care of them.
You can depend on me to provide excellent service and to take great care of the client’s dogs. I know what questions to ask to make sure I understand their specific needs. I also have the skills and experience needed to handle pets that are not very friendly or that do not like strangers.
I am very dependable and will always show up on time and according to the agreement made between your agency and the clients. I am trustworthy with a clean background and reference from former clients I worked for as a freelance dog sitter. I think this is an exciting and very rewarding job and I hope to become a part of your agency soon.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview.
