What can I say? I love working with animals! I find it to be the most fulfilling work out there. With over 5 years of professional experience working with dogs, I am well-versed in dog-walking, boarding/sitting and working with shelter animals with all different types of needs and temperaments.
I started out my career in dog-walking in Chicago. It was such an awesome job that when I moved to Austin I decided to keep it going here! I've walked dogs of all sizes and abilities, ranging from an elderly German Sheppard with arthritis who needed to use a care lift to go on her short walks, to jumpy little pit bull puppies who REALLY wanted to say hello to every person they met when out and about.
While in Chicago, I also worked at an animal shelter. There I walked, fed, cleaned, and socialized with the pups who lived there. I learned how to interact with various dogs with different temperament issues (due to past abuse or neglect) and was known around the shelter as being one of the best people to work with the more stressed out dogs.
If you're interested in boarding, my home is peaceful ,safe, clean and has a great big, securely fenced in backyard for your pup to run around and play in! It's also an awesome neighborhood for going on walks.
I love going on hikes and swimming with the dogs I watch, so if that's something your pup likes to do then they will be in great hands! Otherwise, I am also happy keeping things low key and leisurely :)
I am a compassionate, empathetic, and enthusiastic professional. I cant wait to meet you and your pets!
