About Heather

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Heather and I am 25 year old college student at Pensacola State College. I have been taking care of animals since I was 19 years old. My very first job working with animals was at Sit means Sit/ Baxter's K9 Complex for over a year with Tony Lampert, a well known dog trainer in the U.S. Their I learned to properly care for dogs, distribute medications, and assist with dog training. I enjoyed volunteering at the local shelters where I grew up in Missouri and learned many valuable skills for my future in the animal field. From Missouri, at the age of 22, I moved here to Pensacola, Florida where I have resided for the last three and a half years. Upon moving here my first job was working for Wright Pet Care, with owner Mary Wright, as an independent contractor in pet sitting. I worked for Mary Wright for roughly one and a half years before receiving a Vet Tech position at Parkway Way Animal Hospital where I have been working for the last 2 years. My position here as a Vet Tech has taught me so much and greatly expanded my knowledge of veterinary medicine and the proper care for animals of all species. I love my job and love taking care of animals. I will take great pride and caution in caring for your sweet fur kids as if they were my own.

I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment with my boyfriend of eight years, Austin. I do not have a fenced in yard, but I do have a fenced in back patio! I also give ample supervised outdoor play time in the sun. I will offer up to 3 walks per day for proper exercise and multiple potty outings throughout the day. I have 2 small dogs of my own, Zoey and Kaia, and also a small cat named Elsa. Dogs are required to get along with other dogs and cats. I will also not take in any dog who is not spayed or neutered due to aggression and marking tendencies. I am open to letting well mannered dogs sleep in my room on a bed that I will provide and or in a crate, which I can also provide. I want your pet to feel comfortable and at home as much as possible therefore, I will do everything I can to accommodate your same "at home" routine. I do go to school full-time and work part-time. This means that I will be gone throughout different times of the day. Have no worries though, I will be home for lunch and breaks throughout the day to care for and let out the dogs for potty breaks and play. Dogs will be left out during the day to roam the house freely unless told otherwise by the owner.

Heather has genuine love and compassion for our wonderful canine family members. She has been employed in our animal hospital for years and I am always confident when Heather is working because I know she will give unlimited love to all our pets.

Heather is a wonderful pet sitter! She is so caring and the pets love her. She has years of experience taking care of animals in a veterinary clinic and pet sitting. I would have her watch my pups anytime. ??

Heather is wonderful with all animals. She has no fear of them as demonstrated by this example. When she lived in Missouri Heather had this dog where she worked at, that first did not men from the sound of it and none of the other girls that worked there would go near. Yet Heather approached the dog and this animal responded to her well, listening to her and allowing her to do what she needed to with him. Heather was a trooper and was able to do what needed to be done. Your pet would be in good hands with her.

Heather has always had a long history of loving animals, She has always had a need to have animals around her for companionship and emotional support during tough times. We have for the most part always had dogs here in our house and though she has been out on her own for the last five years, she has left a lasting impression on our oldest German Shepherd Shelby. To this day should Shelby here's me mention the name Heather she immediately starts looking for her. She misses here deeply as I know Heather does also. I know personally that Heather will treat all animals respectfully.

Heather would be an excellent choice for anyone's pet sitting needs. She has years experience working in an animal hospital where she is very attentive to the needs of all the animal's under her care.
Heather also has many years experience pet sitting in and out of her home. Not only does she take excellent care of her own pets she just fostered for 6 months another dog in need of a forever home.
I can confirm the love and well being for the pets in her care are true and genuine.
