My name is Elaine and I am new to the Dog Vacay team in the SE Portland area. Book with me! I love to take walks and go on hikes, so naturally of course the dogs love to come along. Not to mention my large fenced in back yard! Imagine how much your pup would love the space to run around (supervised of course) after a nice hike, let down their fur, kick up their paws, and enjoy a playful yet peaceful night in bed by the fireplace.
I know how hard it is when you are so far away from your babies and how much you would like to see what they are up to when you're away, so I'd also like to extend extra personable service by ensuring up to date photos of your pets so you could still see how they're doing.
As far as experience goes...
Almost two years ago I began my professional experience as a kennel/office manager for a local boarding, training and daycare facility introducing all breeds and ages of dogs into a social setting for groups of 10+. Planned the daily activities and routine, nutrition, medications and general care to 30+ animals (dogs, cats, reptiles, rodents included). I provided a safe, clean environment while encouraging positive behavior and play! Currently, I am working with the Animal Dermatology Clinic.
I've spent several years, off and on, volunteering with various local rescues in Atlanta, and had some light grooming/bathing experience. I am in the process of obtaining Pet First Aid/CPR Certification, but possess basic pet first aid training.
I have open availability including Valentine's, Spring break and Memorial Day! Please don't hesitate.. BOOK ME and ensure a delightful spring getaway for you and your canine family.
