Hello and thank you for viewing my profile! Let me introduce myself: My name is Carrie Mansis, I am 25 years old, I enjoy long walks on the beach with a pup by my side, and quiet nights by the fire with a cat in my lap. Animals are my everything! I have had pets of my own my entire life, and I have been working with animals for over 15 years.
I worked most recently as a full time veterinarian assistant and kennel attendant at a pet hospital in Santa Barbara. My position there had me caring for dogs and cats on a daily basis, feeding them, monitoring their health, administering medication, walking, bathing and grooming them, and cleaning up their living areas. I am knowledgeable in caring for sick, elderly, or special needs pets, and I am well trained in proper animal handling should an animal become aggressive or fearful for any reason. I am also quite adept at recognizing signs of illness or injury and what to do in those cases. I’m comfortable giving medications, trimming nails, cleaning ears, and more. I also have been pet sitting locally for years, and have only recently decided to expand my business using sites like these. Typically I get introduced to new clients by word of mouth, but I’m willing to try something new! I have tons of references from past pet-sitting experiences. upon request. I've cared for all kinds of dogs before; teacup Chihuahuas, golden retrievers, terriers, pit-bulls and more. I have also had pets of my own my entire life; a Beagle, a Jack Russell terrier, shepherd mix, pit bull mix, Labrador mix, Italian greyhound mix (love mutts!) I'm very confident and poised with animals, and I have no problem LOVINGLY telling them who is boss ;) any size, any breed, any behavior, everything goes with me!
Anything else you'd like to know about me, my experience or how I can help you? Do I do CatVacay? (yes). Please, don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you!
The DogVacay calendar does not allow me to specify if I'm available for drop in visits or walks even if I'm booked for overnight stays. Usually, I can accommodate both! Message me to work out details!
