Hello fellow animal lovers! I'm Alli and I am excited to offer you active, compassionate services tailored to your pets!
I specialize in running with dogs that need lots of physical activity. If you are struggling to provide your active dog(s) with the amount of exercise they need then look no further! If you believe your dog(s) would benefit from being run, but they are not well leash trained, please schedule a training session with me to start off. I also enjoy offering calmer, slower walks for less athletic dogs. Whether you are looking for help with a short walk or check-in for your aging or ailing pet while you are at work or a long adventure in a fresh location to help calm your restless athletic pooch, my greatest joy is seeing your pets achieve greater health and happiness!
I worked in animal rescue for 2 years where I was exposed to dogs of all different sizes, breeds, and temperaments. I also worked closely with cats and am skilled in administering medications and dealing with cat behavioral problems. I am informally, but well educated in pet training for dogs and cats and am happy to help you reinforce or develop your training regimen during your pet's time in my care.
I have been pet sitting for many years and have helped care for birds, reptiles, and small caged pets of many kinds in addition to many cats and dogs. I am always seeking to better understand the animals I interact with and care for. I recognize that the best care is not one-size-fits all, but what is best for your individual pets!
I am happy to offer pet transportation and have a clean driving record.
I only require a meet & greet for dogs that will be coming to my home for daycare or overnight stays and only offer these services for dogs socialized with cats. I have one small indoor cat who is socialized to dogs and is very non-aggressive unless harassed. I have the ability to separate the cat from your pet(s) if any unexpected problems arise.
Your dog will be allowed throughout my home under my supervision and when alone if appropriate. I have an empty spare bedroom to set up as your dog's very own special space during their stay with bedding, crate, and toys as provided by you, so you can feel free to bring all your dog's favorite things to help them feel at home! This room will serve as a safe, secure space for your dog when I am away if behavioral problems need to be prevented. Concrete floors make it an ideal place to set out puppy pads for youngsters or aging pets if this is part of your pet's training.
Dogs in my daycare will be given access to my fenced outdoor spaces when appropriate, but will not be kept outside. They will be walked outside at a nearby park for exercise and to do their business. I live right near Zilker Park, the Lady Bird Lake hike & bike trails, and greenbelt access, so pets staying at my home for daycare or overnight will always get fun outdoor adventures!
I know that your pets get lonely while you are away and will practice and seek out appropriate play and socializing opportunities whenever possible to keep your pets feeling happy and loved. I enjoy keeping you updated with pictures so you can stay in touch while you're away!
I understand that your pets are your family. Their safety and well-being are always my first priorities.
