Hi! My name is Juleanne, but you can call me Jules. Through my work as a veterinary assistant, and dog trainer I understand that many pets get stressed out when they are put in a boarding facility while their owner is out of town. My hope is that by working with you and your fur-babies in their home, that stress can be reduced.
I am able to give any medications needed to pets, including injectable medications such as insulin. I am also pet CPR trained, and have the number for a pet ambulance service if ever needed.
Due to being on public transportation for the time being, I am unable to transport pets to veterinary or grooming services, however I am willing to pick up small toys/treats/food on the way if needed for the cost of the items.
I have experience with most breeds of dogs and cats in a veterinary setting and personal experience with rats, ball pythons, bearded dragons and hamsters, as well as working experience with fish, birds and others.
I have sat several times for my aunt's 1.5 year old Rottweiler and her two 9 year old Standard Poodles and handled them easily. Growing up I babysat numerous households with a mix of children and pets of all ages and sizes with no major incidents.
While on walks, I am able and willing to use most types of collars, harnesses and head halters, however I do not believe in using choke/prong collars or shock devices to control a dog on walks. I also prefer to use non-retracable 4-6ft leashes, however I will use retractables if needed.
I am a certified pet trainer through Petsmart, and have experience with all breeds, and most common issues, such as potty training, manners, diffusing fear based aggression, as well as others. I am ready to help you learn how to communicate effectively with your fur baby and strengthen your relationship. As a trainer and vet assistant, I know that the main reason for pets to be surrendered to a shelter is behavioral issues, and I want to do everything in my power to help you avoid making that difficult decision.
