Individualized pet care has been my passion for decades. I was raised with dogs, cats, hamsters, ducks, turtles, fresh water fish, a rabbit, and a horse while growing up in my parent's home. I even raised Grand Champion White Leghorn chickens in 4-H! But unlike most hobby pet sitters I don't count these years as part of my experience. Those years are just an added bonus because I know that pets in my home behave differently than your pets. I know this because I have been in hundreds of homes and have experienced animal behavior first-hand. Studies in basic human and animal psychology, a calm patient demeanor, and many years of experience with the human-animal bond in various environments help me predict your pet's behavior to keep them safe. With my training and experience I can provide the most relevant care possible for each pet's age, breed, and temperament.
In short, I believe that all stages of life deserve quality care and support. To be there for your pets from 8 weeks to 8 years is an honor. My pet care services respect each stage of life with an appropriate care plan that reduces the fear, anxiety, and stress that can appear when pet owners depart, if even for a short period of time.
