About Frances

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Frances and I am a little crazy about dogs. Okay a lot crazy. But in a good way. I worked for two years in one of the US's premier dog boarding facilities where I managed the day to day activities (playtime, treats, feeding, medication, etc) of up to 300 dogs at any given time. I recently finished my degree in Biology with an emphasis in zoology at San Francisco State University where animal behavior was my focus. I have lived with and cared for dogs all my life, both professionally and personally. I am capable of administering all oral and topical medications. I can prepare custom meals and maintain unique feeding schedules. I am also adept monitoring pups both in groups and individual settings for health and happiness using behavioral signals. I have a deep love of all dogs and I emphasize the importance of play and enrichment to a dog's quality of life. If I can improve a dog's life (and that of their owners) then I believe that is a job well done. I have an extremely flexible schedule which allows me to be available almost any time for care-taking requests and I am open to most requests for the individual needs of the dog.

Nov 2016
Frances has a remarkable ability to work with dogs of all breeds, sizes and temperaments. She has always treated our pets with an affectionate and kind yet firm hand that is especially helpful with our "problem children." Through her studies and her experience working with animals, she has developed a thorough knowledge of dogs' natural instincts and uses her knowledge in their care.

I worked with Frances for several years at a busy dog daycare in San Francisco where I was her supervisor, and I was always impressed by her professionalism and care. She is incredibly conscientious with lots of experience, and knows how to care for all sorts of dogs, from high-energy puppies to sweet seniors and dogs with special needs. She's attentive, responsible, and reliable, and was an important member of our team. Most importantly, she obviously loves dogs -- she came to work every day enthusiastic and happy to be there, and the dogs always loved her just as much as she loved them!
