My name is Thania- I am a well seasoned pet owner, caretaker & assistant. Home Away From Home is my way of saying that no matter where you need someone to take care of your furry (or maybe not always so furry) family member, they will always feel loved & cared for as if they were at home. When boarding, walking and/or caring for your pet, I will always first take into account of their comfort level. I have no problem giving them physical attention & affection! I want the best for the animal at the end of the day & the best for the owner as well. Trusting that your furry family member is in the right hands is priority, let me be the one to put you at ease.
I have had dogs all my life, various sizes & breeds including Chow Chow, Chihuahua, Pitbull, Poodle, etc. I was in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Tampa Bay Tech Magnet High for 3 years. We were to care for the daily needs (including feeding, waste management, exercise, etc) of the following animals: dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, Guinea pigs, rats, snakes (including a boa constrictor!), fish, sugar gliders, bearded dragons, goats, chickens, and pigs. I also worked with horses at Bakas Equestrian Center and at the Florida Aquarium for clinical hours. I also have over 100+ hours volunteering at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
In 2012, I received the certification from the Florida Veterinary Medical Association in a number of subjects under the Animal Care Training program which included the following areas: Veterinary Foundations, Technician Skills Series, Kennel Assistant Training, Receptionist Training, Assistant Training I and II. I am currently working on advancing my certification further.
