I have a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes especially dogs! I have experience taking dogs out walking, hiking, going to the parks, and the ocean, along with boarding in my home or in client's home's.
I grew up with a black lab half cocker spaniel, and a Siberian Husky pup, who I trained, raised and have done occasional breeding. At one point in my childhood we had 30 cats and 20 dogs, and being home schooled gave me the joy of being around them all day. I try to constantly educate myself in dog training methods and dog behaviors, which has helped me successfully lead the pack of dogs that I become very close to.
I have been in dog care professionally while working full time as a Supervisor and last year I decided to quit my 5 years in customer service to pursue my dream, which was to start my own dog care business. I hope to make great relationships with you and have the blessing to watch and help your pup grow.
My home has a huge, fully fenced backyard, and the pooches are supervised 24/7 and sleep in my room at night. When sitting inside your home I am clean, quiet, and respectful. I love exhausting them on outings to the beach or hikes, and love playing fetch or frisbee. I am full of energy and your pup will not even know you were gone until you return. I like to keep them busy exploring outdoors, if dog friendly I let them socialize at local dog parks, or take a trip to the pet store and find a toy they sniff and like. I do not like to just sit inside and watch TV, they need to have an adventure, and that is what I give them. I am aware of dogs that may have health conditions and if they need mellow activity, I always follow that need. After they are pooped I love to cuddle and update you with photos.
My schedule is very open and flexible. There comes times when I am only available for half of the service or already booked, so I have a work partner that has been assisting me for a year and is amazing with dogs! Kelsey grew up raising and breeding Pomeranians, and has joined me on many of my dog care adventures. She normally comes with me to greet n meets, so we all can get to know each other. Kelsey is professional, energetic, caring and very attentive with dogs, and we work and communicate well with each other.
I hope you find my tail wagging possé the right fit for you and your dog!
Please note that there will be an additional $5 charge for the holiday dates.
Request that you walk your dog for 30min-1br if your drop off time is after 3:00pm, because all the dogs already staying will have had exercise for 4 hours. It really helps me if I can provide a max of 5-6 hours of exercise so the dogs are not restless and unable to sleep the entire night. Thank you!
