My name is Derrick I was born and raised in San Diego but lived several years in Santa Cruz. I recently moved back to San Diego, in order to help take of my elderly Grandmother, hopefully I will be able to return back to the Central Coast, because I have always felt a strong connection to the Redwoods, Ocean and the natural beauty of Santa Cruz. As a youngster my grandparents owned a ranch so I have been around and responsible for dogs as well as many other pets including horses. To me our pets are our family and should be treated as such; considering you come from a unconditional loving, supportive, trusting, heart warming family! I have a natural intuition that I have applied in my years as a pet care professional in a variety of environments and with dogs of many different temperaments. Dogs are feeling beings, and I am very passionate about providing positive dog care. Between this and Glass Blowing/ Jewelry Making, I must admit I am a very blessed human & hope t be able to share that love with your 4 legged family. Last but not least, I have worked on my own as a pet sitter as well as a plant sitter, (Plants need our love attention also) over the years. Everything from just daily walking, to cleaning peoples yards (I'm sure you can guess of what), to over night stays at my home or at the pets home. I have always been animal lover and will treat your pet with the utmost tenderness, and care as well as something some may over look, I will be attentive and pay attention to your pet's needs, not just throw some food in the bowl, go for a walk twice a day. On a side note, despite your beliefs on the subject and every one has their own beliefs, I have been Vegan for over 20 years and am a strong supporter of animal rights. So you can rest assured knowing that your pet would be taken care by some one that would do anything for the well being of your pet.
***While on a walk, I pledge my commitment to your pup's safety by silencing my cell phone and refusing to jaywalk.
