A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
I grew up with farm and domestic animals and as an adult, I have always owned my own pets. They are my passion and a huge part of my life and family! This passion and love is what inspired me to start a pet sitting business in 2009. I have been pet sitting since. I am insured, bonded and background checked; First Aid and CPR trained for cats and dogs; experienced in administering medications, including insulin injections (for cats and dogs); experienced in bladder expressions for dogs, and have cared for pets with other special needs. In addition to caring for cats and dogs, I've also cared for ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, lizards and birds. I am a member of Pet Sitter's International, "The World's Leading Organization for Professional Pet Sitters" (www.petsit.com) and The International Association of Canine Professionals, "An association established to develop and promote the highest standards of professional and business practice among canine professionals" (www.canineprofessionals.com).
In 2012, I began volunteering for a local rescue organization. I started out volunteering on the dog team, attending adoption events, walking foster dogs, taking foster dogs to training sessions, conducting home visits for potential adoptions, helping with fundraisers, and much more. In time, I became the Dog Coordinator and also a Board Member for the organization. As extremely rewarding as it was to save, and rehome, so many dogs, I also experienced a lot of heartache when I saw, first hand, how many dogs were relinquished to shelters, rescue organizations, random homes (whether good or bad for the pet), the streets and even worse. Most were relinquished due to "behavior" issues. Many of these behavior issues were no fault of the dogs and quite possibly could have been prevented or corrected with proper training, behavior modification and dedication and commitment on the owners' part and with the assistance of a qualified trainer. Sadly, about 1.2 million dogs per year never make it out of shelters and into loving homes. These heartbreaking statistics are what prompted me to take action. I wanted to make a difference. I enrolled in Animal Behavior College in 2014 and became a certified, positive reinforcement dog obedience trainer. I started out by volunteering for a local shelter and worked with dogs to improve their chances for adoption. Once I graduated and received my certification to teach, I began training dogs as my profession. Whether your dog is in need of behavior modification or you'd like obedience training, I am here to help!
