About Petrina

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am Petrina, a retired Social Worker, who would LOVE to care for your pets after 35 years of caring for the humans. With just Mario, (my little guy) and me my life style is one of yoga, reading, walking, crafts, biking, cooking just relaxed living and good health.
I have experience with dog sitting for my friends. Friends call on me for reliable, safe care of their pets, and I have never failed them.
My environment is very dog friendly. The family room goes out to a large plush green space backyard, that is fence secured, with birds, squirrels, chipmunks and hopping frogs for fun. Here pets have active play, rest, relaxation and voiding. This family room can be closed off for potty training if necessary. However, entire home is accessible to pets all day long.
A typical day is purposeful, with varied degrees of activity, (depending on needs of pet), and filled with attentive love.
A long walking trail and dog park are adjacent to my subdivision where I can take a slow or active walk with lots of socialization if needed and desirable. Pets can really sleep in dog beds or cages or with me or Mario.
I can accommodate all special needs pets and have extensive experience with medication administration to cats and dogs.

In the 19 years that I have know Petrina she has been a responsible and caring pet owner. Her concern for the health and happiness of her pets is that same as that of a parent with a child. She has gone to great lengths to ensure that her dogs are well cared for. She has always talked to her dogs and included them in her activities where applicable. They are an active part of her life, rather than an afterthought. I personally have entrusted my pets to her care when I have been away.

I highly recommend Petrina as an excellent caretaker.

I was very pleased with Petrina's care of our Peanut. I loved it that she took her for a walk. Will definitely use Petrina again.
We had Whiskey staying for about 2 weeks with Petrina and Mario, her little fur boy. Whiskey had never been separated from us, but Petrina was very nice and he immediately liked her. Whiskey was really happy and enjoyed playing with Mario. Petrina sent us sms and pictures, so we could see how happy he was. Thank you Petrina! We will definitively come back.
Emma stayed with Patrina and Mario, her beautiful fur baby for 16 days and it was wonderful!! We already have Emma booked for our next trip very soon for another 13 nights, Patrina sent us pictures while we were away which always makes it easier knowing she's in good hands. Patrina is very sweet and Emma loved all her attention and playing with Mario. Would definitely recommend this wonderful care.
