I'm a young professional that lives in Denver, CO. I grew up around so many dogs! With a herding dog as a child, and now with my own herding dog. My grandfather also bred dogs for a living, and I grew up around a minimum of 13 Westies at a time. I even got my hair cut at his house, right on the grooming table (hey it was a small town! lol!)
I love dogs, and have spent time around small, large, and high energy breeds. My dog is very smart and high energy, so I'm equipped to handle a dog that needs a lot of interaction, training, and exercise. We play fetch usually a minimum an hour a day, and she goes everywhere with myself and my husband. We take our dog (and guest dogs) on hikes and we have a lot of friends that often welcome our dogs and visiting dogs over for parties.
I own my own house, which has a full 6 foot fenced-in backyard. My dog tends to keep to herself when other dogs are around, but she does like when other dogs want to be chased and herded.
I'm comfortable administering medications to both cats and dogs and exotics.
I have a couple of special needs animals in my house, as well. If you have any other special needs animals, or small animals, (lizzards, birds, etc) and need help, most likely I know a thing or two about them. Along with dogs, I grew up with exotic lizards, and my parents were also parrot breeders. I'm pretty skilled at hand feeding critical care and other medications that require syringes, or spoons. I have also had fish for several years and can clean tanks and feed fish, as well.
I'm respectful of any special needs your pet has - need special food? Like your dogs to be served dinner in a special pack order? Need to have brushings? No problem! I will make sure your special friend gets as close to the routine you provide, so unusual habits aren't formed.
Please let me know how I can help, I love meeting new people and am a helper, in general! Thank you!
