I grew up with a large menagerie of animals (dogs, cats, farm animals, small mammals, birds, and fish). I have a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Ecology. From 2008-2012 I worked at a wildlife rehabilitation center caring for and handling/releasing various species of mammals (deer, raccoon, coyote, fox, bobcat, etc.). From 2012-2014 I was the curator of the education animals at the Rock Eagle 4-H center (reptiles, amphibians, insects, arachnids, birds of prey). I am proficient in animal husbandry and operant conditioning training. I am happy to assist you, your family, and your pet with basic obedience training. I have also been horseback riding since I was a small child and can assist with horse care, exercise, or training.
Currently, I have an 11-year-old Australian Shepherd and three cats. My Aussie does not get along with other dogs, but does great with cats and other small critters. Therefore, I cannot board dogs in our home, but may be able to board a cat or other small pet when requested.
I run in the early mornings and late evenings and would love a running companion if you have a dog who has extra energy to expend.
