About Lorna

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
WHO I AM:
Hi! My name is Lorna and I'm a PET First Aid & CPR Instructor for Dogs/Cats. I specialize in SPECIAL NEEDS dogs including: Deaf, Mute, Blind, and other medical or Traumatic behavior handling and care with 24 HOUR supervision between me and my boyfriend.

I am trained both by Pet Tech and the American Red Cross to perform Pet First Aid and CPR. (My boyfriend is also trained in pet CPR). I believe in holistic care such as cooking, grooming, nutrition, training during the lifetime of their pets. I am an experienced pet sitter/walker/handler with over 2 decades experience including rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned, abused, or neglected dogs. I also have experience in special needs dogs who are deaf, blind, or suffering from medical conditions.

ATTITUDE:
Netflix and Chill.**We've just upgraded our home with a 3.5 ft x 5 ft top grade orthopedic mattress along with soft orthopedic stairs for all our furry guests.** This home will be ideal for dogs seeking a pack that has a laid back and lazy vibe. Because I focus on senior age, nervousness/medical needs, and low energy, you can rest assure that this is the place to have a nice, cozy, calm getaway and we have wee pads out for all kiddos as a considerate option. We live in a sunny space in the heart of Chelsea just 3 blocks from the Madison Square Park's Dog Run with 2 foster fails Casper and Stitch. Your furkid will get plenty of play time, multiple walks, hang out with our pack freely in our apt and be supervised around the clock (19-20 hours). No crates, just gates if I step out. Lots of sunshine overlooking the city with our floor to ceiling windows for sunbathing. Amenities include elevator, 24 hour concierge, 1 block proximity to Chelsea Veterinarian Hospital, the dog park, Madison Square Park, Highline Park as well as Hudson River Park.

Contact me for partial or full day stays! (Rates are also negotiable for terminal and hospice care) Medication, eye .drops, and ointment applications included in price

***I have a real love for dogs and when not booked, I foster to save lives as one of the Mayor's Alliance New Hope Partners to help those in need.

MY PETS:
2 little pekes, our fur kiddos

ABOUT MY YARD/NEIGHBORHOOD:
Outdoor roof deck and sundeck, also only 3 blocks away from the madison square park/dog park or if preferred, a nice long stroll near the highline or hudson river park.

MEDICATION/SPECIAL NEEDS:
Yes. Administering pills, eye drops, ointment, is not a problem. If you have any pointers to what method you found was easier, I am open to your suggestions. Working with a variety of personalities I have been able to manage creative and non-intimidating ways to help your furkid get his meds in.

Lorna was so wonderful with my Teddy! She has a ton of experience with rescues and Teddy warmed up to her really quickly. I really appreciated her focus on making him comfortable and her focus on his health and wellness. She even gave me some great tips on caring for him, since she is trained in pet first aid and focuses on holistic pet care!! And her regular photo updates were great. Highly recommended!!
