Hey there, I'm Hannah! I'm 20 years old, I currently work at a popular dog daycare in Richmond called Diamond Doghouse, and I grew up with a wonderful dog of my own. I also worked at an animal hospital for almost a year. I've always been the "animal crazy" girl who knew every pet in the neighborhood and greeted dogs more enthusiastically than their people! I have experience with obedience training and basic grooming. At work I interact with dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages, and temperaments.
I love making personal connections with every dog I meet, and I consider myself skilled in reading animals' body language and behavior. I care for every pet as if they were my own.
When I take care of your dog, I will send you pictures, update you on our visits, and let you know generally how he or she is doing! I'm comfortable with anxious and shy dogs, and dogs with high energy levels. I'd like to avoid dogs with aggression issues however.
I mostly work 7-3:30, so I can come visit or walk your dogs after work in the afternoon or evening, or pretty much anytime on a Sunday. I recently moved to a pet-friendly apartment complex with my boyfriend so I can now watch dogs in my home, but I'm happy to come to you as well! My boyfriend Michael loves animals of all kinds and he will be helping me care for your dog. We are a team! He works at Kroger but is usually home when I am at work.
When your dog stays with me or I or drop in for a visit, we will have so much fun! I can take him out for a walk around the neighborhood or to local parks. Playing around the yard or house with a ball or squeaky toy is always great. I'm also a huge fan of cuddle sessions, so if your pooch is the lazy type, I'm totally down for that! Belly rubs and forehead kisses are my specialty. I will do anything I can to make your doggy feel loved and happy!
I can't wait to love on your fur-baby!
