Your dog or pet is precious to you. He or she deserves to be loved and have fun while you are away.
I have been caring for, training and loving dogs since I was 5 years old. One of my first dogs was an Olde English Sheepdog named Josh that was bigger than me, but I always had the last word. We were inseparable.
Fast forward decades later. I am now in my late forties and enjoy a wonderful writing career that has taken me all over the world. My love for animals has extended to all of the dogs, cats, birds and exotics I have personally loved, and to the many other animals I have cared for and provided both physical and psychological training.
Two years ago, I lost "the one" (we've all had them, haven't we?) She was a 13 year old Yorkie named Molly. She was smart, fun and passionate. About everything!
Though I now have no pets of my own, I would be a great reason to breathe easy during your leave since I have been in your situation for a great number of years. When I was traveling heavily, little Molly went to a caregiver she loved her whole life. The caregiver was experienced and responsible and handled every situation (even the tough ones) while I was gone. It gave me peace of mind to focus on my travel. Molly never knew what a real "kennel" was, and I wish that happiness and joy for you and your pet.
Whether your dog loves the dog park, a quiet walk in nature, city-slicking it on the neighborhood sidewalks or just lounging peacefully on the couch, fun and peace are on the menu. (To complement your dog's favorite treats of course!) I work from home, so your dog will not be alone.
It is proven that a dog is more comfortable in their own surroundings when their owner is away. Therefore, I will stay at your home so your pup can enjoy fun with me without the anxiety of new surroundings, new people and new environment
** Your stress-free pup is a happier pup!**
Plus, you won't have to lug all of his/her belongings or drive anywhere.
** I am background checked by BOTH DogVacay, and
the Mesa Police. **
You can rest assured your things are safe!
Additionally, I am experienced with the following:
- Post-operative care
- Dispensing Oral Medication
- Dispensing Injection Medication
Behavior Issues such as:
- Separation Anxiety
- Leash pulling
- Fears (storms, other animals, people)
- and many others
- Behavioral Training (behavior is my line of writing work, so I'll naturally do this for you at no charge)
I use Cesar Milan's calm and assertive energy method to quickly and gently give your dog pack leader direction. No violence or harsh words or deeds - ever.
If you are located in Dreamland Villa, Velda Rose, Alta Mesa, Leisure World, Superstition Springs, Red Mountain, Las Sendas or Sunland Village or elsewhere in Mesa - we are neighbors! I also have clients from Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Apache Junction, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Gold Canyon.
Out of state, I currently. have clients who hire me to come to San Francisco, Denver and San Diego. Because I am flexible and I only deal with one pup(s) at a time - yours - I can travel to a second home if needed.
I am the kind, experienced and responsible caregiver you now need as you go on your own travels in life, and I look forward to meeting you very soon.
** I don't do this for a living - I do it for the LOVING!**
Looking forward to speaking with you. I always do a phone "meet and greet" with you before I meet your fur babies. That way we get to know each other without distraction.
