I have 16 years of pet ownership experience: dogs, birds, cats, reptiles, rodents, fish, horses, raccoons, pot-bellied pig, and goat. I also have 5 years of professional experience working with both pets and their owners, and experience managing a grooming salon.
My current pets: 16 year old Pekingese, 3 year old adopted Pitbull (who loves most animals and plays with our pet rats; she loves small dogs, and most big dogs), 2 cats, 2 pet rats, 1 beta fish, 3 guppies, and 1 blue crayfish.
I have been caring for animals since I was young, including those with behavior problems: separation anxiety, leash pulling, people/dog/fence/leash/trigger aggression, resource guarding, destructive chewing, excessive marking or mounting, digging, excessive barking, etc. I am NOT a licensed/certified dog trainer.
Academy-trained and certified to groom any breed of dog, I am also a certified Pet Saver, specializing in First-Aid & Pet CPR. I have additional certifications in dog language and group play, and have the experience to care for many animals at once, specializing in dogs. I am exceptionally good at reading verbal and non-verbal communication and body language, and have a good understanding of the psychology and development of dogs as well as pack hierarchy.
Our home is spacious, with a fenced yard, but I prefer to go to clients' homes where the pet is most comfortable and familiar.
