About Avian

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My DogVacay profile is relatively new, but I have an extensive history with animals. Including all of my long-term clients of many years, I've always kept dogs and cats of all sizes in stature and personality, from overbearingly friendly Danes to aggressively reactive Chihuahuas.

My last best friend passed away recently of old age, so now I am looking forward to being that Pet Auntie for other Pet Parents. I work from home so I will be with your pet most if not all of the time, suitable especially for young pups and dogs with separation anxiety or special needs.

I am a big believer in consistent training. My regulars for dog-walks receive training on leash walking and for a number of other issues. I currently still have availability for regular walking clients. Naturally, puppies need more attention and will receive a longer appointment than the usual 30 minutes. Please note that these remedies can only make progress with consistent practice, which means you will have to maintain training on off days. :)

My dog walking/drop in services include:
-Walk until the pup poos and pees
-Leash training
-Hyperactive playtime to get out the excess energy
-Attention treat-based training
-Regular video/photo updates
-Pup massage to wind down from the day
*Due to distance, clients on the eastside will be subject to a different rate.

Housesitting includes:
-All of the above for dog walking as many times as the pup needs/likes
-Any other related details a Pup Parent would like to cater to the pup's regular regimen
-Free shampoo wash
-Housekeeping maintenance (mail, plants, etc.)
-Contact availability 24/7
*Additional dog is $35 per dog

I'm interested in not only caring for the pups, but to also establish a trusting rapport with Pup Parents. I become very attached to my furry friends and any other opportunity to see them is a great pleasure and privilege. :)

Avian is always so great with our energetic pup. She sends plenty of updates to let us know that everything is going well and Walter is being loved and cared for. Thanks, Avian.
Avian took awesome care of my 13-year-old toy poodle Leroy for three nights. He's not the easiest dog--he has a medication regimen, is a picky eater, and suffers from separation anxiety. Plus, he expects a warm lap to be available 24/7. None of this fazed Avian, however. I came home to a happy dog. Thank you, Avian!

Avian is absolutely amazing... she cares for Mika as if she's part of the family! From the pictures she sends to the welcome home notes... it's an absolute perfect experience. I'm not sure Mika wants her to leave when we get home!
Avian is an amazing find. This is the second time she watched our dog Walter for a weekend and I have no concerns about her watching Walter again. My fiance and I went on a long weekend back to the NY and Avian was able to come to the house early Thursday and stayed and played with Walter until we landed on Sunday afternoon.

Walter isn't a dog park dog and needs a lot of exercise so we are always nervous leaving him but Avian was very attentive and sent photo's of them playing throughout the day. We are most certainly going to go with her again in the future.

Avian was absolutely fantastic. She was so attentive to our dog and kept us up to date with photos via text. It is such a blessing to have someone that will take care of our beloved dog, just like we would have. Having just moved here from Dallas, it is awesome to have someone we can trust with our pet (aka child)!! Will be using Avian again, without hesitation!

Avian is a great house & dog & chicken sitter! She went beyond our expectations with the awesome care she provided Riley-- all day companionship, interesting daily outings, playdates, training, and even bathing him! and sending us a picture or two each day. She is completely reliable and responsible, and left our house very clean and pets in fine shape for our return. She is our #1 DogVacay sitter from now on.

Avian was great for our meet and greet, and the dogs seemed like they had a great time during her visit! We'll definitely be using her again.
Avian stayed at my place while I was out of town and was very caring and attentive with Rocko. She was also good about communicating and sending updates/photos, and even made him treats for Christmas. She was clean and respectful of the apartment as well. Rocko even missed her when she left so I know he enjoyed her company.
