About Dorinda

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I was raised with dogs and subsequently had many pets. I had pet rodents (mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, & rabbits), turtles (both water and tortoise), and a cat. I also have fish. I ride and love horses and even do reiki sessions with them. Most pets are quite receptive to reiki. It's just an intensely focused form of petting really. I am also an avid SCUBA diver and my main reason is the animals in the sea. I love all animals. For my own dogs, I prefer to clip their toenails and bath them myself. All of my dogs have actually enjoyed the bathing process. It's a treat for them and they will simply walk right into the shower with me.
Since I have two dogs it is important to me that I meet your animal prior to them meeting each other. I want everyone to be safe and happy.
My home is very pet-friendly.
I have doggie pillows everywhere for them to lounge on.
They are welcome on the couch unless you prefer them not to.
They can bask in the sun either outside or in the comfy bay window area.
They have all of their needs provided for. Even if they have an "accident".
Tons of love will be bestowed upon them unless you prefer them to wait for you. But, it will be hard on me and my pack to not give them all the love and attention they deserve.
They will have frequent trips to the front yard to run and explore. It's all fenced in and safe for them and they will not be unattended.
I'm not a professional trainer but, I can teach a dog a few tricks as well.
Please contact me for your pet care needs.

Dorinda home and yard is quite pet-safe.
Her dogs and guest dogs may go wherever they choose in the house. But mainly all the dogs seem to just want to follow Dorinda around simply to be in her company.

As I spoke with Dorinda, I noticed her face brightens up with a huge smile when she starts talking about dogs - she truly is a dog lover at heart.

Her dogs and any guest dogs are supervised 24/7 - any dogs staying with her will feel very safe and comfortable. They will get a lot of attention from tummy rubs and play from her and her teenage son!

Dorinda was fantastic! She met me 2x prior to pet sitting to go over all details and let me dogs get familiar with her---and you can tell she is a true animal lover as my dogs immediately fell at home with her. While I was away, she showed up exactly when she said she would, spent time playing with my dogs and sent daily videos of my pups. I am so pleased with her I will certainly use her every time I need a pet sitter.
