About Janet

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When I was 12 I used to visit my neighbours dog (Rick) ( a Golden Lab) chained up in their yard. On rainy days I built us a fort - I sat with him for hours. Eventually we moved, where I found "Big Bertha" (a St Bernard.) I'd walk her for free; at times she dug her way out of her yard & could be found at my apartment bldg doorway waiting for me. I cared for Bertha + Bart the pug next door, as well as another dog, Munchkin (my friends family dog.) In my forties I had my own little cutie, Joey, a Bichon/ Chin mix. He was with me for 18 years. I cared for Joey diligently into his final days; even waking in the wee hours, just to hold him upright, when he was unable to stand to urinate. I miss him dearly, however, I cannot have pets where I live. I feel that caring for others pets is the ultimate win-win situation; so as to provide a genuinely caring and loving service to those in need. The only setback is that I cannot have pets in my home for longer than a few hours. It is best for me to walk dogs, visit pets, and/or care in your home. Ps. I have had many fish, cats + hamsters. I used to also volunteer at a Horse Stable.
Honestly, I should have started my own doggie daycare many moons ago, but life & travel got in my way.

Janet had a dog, Joey and nurtured him throughout his life. Joey was her child! She consistently fed him only one high grade dog food product that she sometimes travelled 2 hours across borders to purchase. Joey was treated to daily hikes in the woods rain or shine and she knew instantly when something was bothering him, physically or emotionally. Janet's care and attention to Joey allowed him to live 18 fulfilling years and they both miss each other dearly. She has a kind heart for all animals and hopes to spread that love to others.
