About Viktoria

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been in the pet care profession full time since 1993. I owned my own highly successful grooming and boarding facility in suburban Nashville Tennessee until just recently. Additionally my husband and I spent over 4 years as a local rescue, taking dogs from area shelters updating their medical needs and giving them the social skills needed to be adopted into "furever" homes. We saved over 400 dogs during that time. I have experience working with everything from puppies to senior pets and can administer oral and injectable medications.
As for our home, we have a very large home of with an attached in-law apartment of 1200 S.F. This gives us the option of either having pets stay within our own pack, or to completely separate visiting dogs from the pack while still being right there with my care and supervision. It all depends on what the owner would like and what is most prudent in each situation. Our home is on two acres and is fenced with a six foot privacy fence and gates that can be opened from only inside the yard. Our deck is also completely fenced with privacy fence, this gives us the ability to zone off dogs if necessary.
I am retired so I am home 90% of the time and when I do leave to run errands your pet would be separated from our own dogs in the in-law apartment for peace of mind. I have always treated every visiting pet like it were my own. Feel free to bring any of your pet's bedding etc.

Any dog would be lucky to be watched by Viktoria! She is one with the animals. Not only is she dog crazy, dogs are also crazy about her. She is patient, caring and affectionate with all animals. We have been able to truly enjoy ourselves while away because our furry babies and home were in great hands with Viktoria.

I can tell you from being with Viktoria since 2002, she has been a dog groomer for over 20 years, ran her own kennel business, as well as working with multiple rescue agencies to help facilitate the care and re-homing of over 400 dogs as well as cats. Viktoria has the skill set to deal with all types of temperments ranging from the shy timid to the overly agressive behavioral types. She currently has 9 dogs of her own that were considered the unadoptables that have all been trained to get along on her 2 acre estate in the Hope Valley area. I would be happy to provide names and numbers of the rescue agencies she has worked with over the last 10 years who will be happy to confirm her work ethics and ability to care for family pets in a safe and humane manor

Viktoria has worked with animals for years. She was a groomer and dog sitter years ago at a vet clinic. Then she opened her own grooming and boarding shop. She and her husband ran a rescue as well. She has a lot of patience with animals, and they are drawn to her like Dr. Doolittle! She has 9 dogs of her own, some that had been in her rescue and due to social issues or age did not get adopted out. But all 9 dogs get along and they are thriving and happy!
I would certainly recommend Viktoria as a pet sitter!
