About Krista

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I am a 30 year old full time wife, stay-at-home mom, and homeschooler. I spend most of my time here at home teaching my 8 year old third grade son with only occasional outings! My son LOVES animals of all kinds but dogs are especially his favorite! He has a desire to work with animals when he grows up in an animal shelter or maybe even as a Veterinarian! I think he may have gotten his love for animals from me! Animals sure make for loving and comforting company, especially when you're an only child.
We live in a two bedroom apartment that is perfect for small pets. Our apartment is right next to the unfenced grass lawn for our small complex with a large tree that provides shade. We love to be outdoors in ALL seasons! Our "backyard" are the beautiful hiking trails of Rancho San Rafael Park, including The Evans Creek Canyon Trail. As we live just north of Rancho San Rafael Park, we also have easy access to the parks walking trails and enormous dog park.
I have owned dogs and cats all my life but their was a particular dog that was near and dear to my heart. His name was Rags and I was his primary care giver for over 6 years! He was a Miniature Schnauzer who had special needs as a diabetic dog. Because of his needs, as a teenager, I would ride my bike home from work each day on my lunch break to take him on a walk to go potty (which he had to do every 4 hours) as well as administer insulin shots twice a day. So I know all about the sacrifice it takes to make sure your animals have the best care possible! Ever since I was a teenager, I have also visited cats, fish, and dogs at their owner's houses and fed and played with them. I have also walked dogs for several friends over the years. I've also had a little experience with gerbils.
What can I say? In our family, pets are our passion!
I do not work Sunday's. I do not believe in using any methods/products with animals that I feel may be harmful (i.e. hitting, neglecting, choker/shock leashes, etc.). All pets must be house broken and good with children.
Also as a homeschooler, I am available at hours and times when others may not be. My schedule can be flexible.
