ABOUT ME:
Hello fellow Pawrents!

My name is Velissa and I am a Dogoholic, but proud of it! Here is a little about myself: I am currently a student at Miami-Dade College studying to gain my Bachelors in Elementary Education, because apart from dogs I love me some kids. I currently work at a Veterinarian Clinic, Westbird Animal Hospital, as a Kennel Technician so I am already a pro at cleaning up doggy doody. I also assist the Doctor whenever he needs help holding an animal or administrating injections or giving medicine. So if you have a dog or cat that needs to take a daily pill or eye drops, I'm your gal.
My experience doesn't just come from my job, but also my home life. I have had all types of animals ever since I was a little girl, my first dog was a Shih Tzu named Cookie...who is still in my life today! 15 years later and he is still the love of my life! I also have experience with reptiles and smaller animals.
I have no restrictions on any dog breed, I love them all equally.
Your doggy will enjoy long walks/runs as well as a fresh dip in the pool with the owners permission (supervised of course). Your dogs will NEVER BE UNSUPERVISED while they are outside playing.
Be assured that I will provide your doggy or any other animal you might have with the best service guaranteed or you get a full refund. I can't wait to meet them!

My dog is very weary of people and when Velissa came out she noted his apprehension. She knew how to approach him and little by little they felt comfortable with each other. i left on my trip feeling like they were dog savvy and he was in great hands. i also received pics and updates.

Velisssa did an amazing job taking care of our Dog, who's not the easiest to handle. She updated us with photos so we were able to keep up with our little girl while we were away. Her responses are speedy and so is the service. Every time we go on vacation without our dog Mia we will be leaving her with Velissa. She made our vacation stress free and easy to enjoy. She also has a gorgeous backyard and pool for the dogs to play in. Thank you Velissa !!!
