Want your pup to stay in a loving home environment, getting plenty of exercise and attention, and enjoying being treated like a member of our family? Looking for a person you can trust as an experienced dog owner, professional dog trainer, and life-long lover of animals of all kinds? I’d love to have your four-legged friend stay with us! I enjoy and look forward to spending time with all of the dogs that I’ve cared for.
Your dog will also enjoy spending time with my own pup, Dozer, who is an 8-year-old hound/lab mix. He is happy to either play with energetic dogs or just enjoy relaxing with older and/or mellow dogs.
We live in a house in a quiet neighborhood in the Nassau Bay/Clear Lake area. Your dog will have full indoor/outdoor privileges with use of our large backyard, which has lots of shade and is fully fenced. I care for my daughter and work from home, so I will be home with your dog all day, other than occasional errands. My fiancé, who has also owned and loved dogs his entire life, is home on evenings and weekends.
I work as a professional dog trainer and enjoy caring for several of my clients’ dogs as well as other pups through DogVacay. I am an active professional member of the national Association of Professional Dog Trainers, as well as a certified trainer evaluator for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program and Therapy Pets Unlimited. I am personally licensed and insured as a professional trainer, in addition to coverage provided through DogVacay.
Since I was a small child, I’ve always felt a powerful bond with and compassion for animals, and I enjoyed growing up with dogs as well as fish, frogs, and butterfly hatcheries. Since then, I’ve worked professionally at the largest animal shelter in Chicago, IL (The Anti-Cruelty Society); as a head dog trainer at Petco; and now in running my own dog training company. I’ve also had wonderful experience volunteering with several dog rescue organizations and an equine therapy program. In short, I love working with dogs and would love to care for and dote on yours!
