Resident Pets

Currently I own a 15 month old English Bulldog (Franklin), Moxxi a 6 year old Chow/Shepherd Mix, Norman Bates who is a 6 year old Staffy/Sharpei/Beagle Mix and finally  Vixen a Chihuahua Terrier Mix, who is the senior of the bunch at 11 years old.

What is the funniest or most memorable experience you’ve have with an animal?

I began “collecting” animals as my parents would call it during elementary school. While walking home, if I found an unattended dog or cat I would try to coax them to follow me home, this usually worked, and I ended up with random dogs and cats in my house and yard when my parents would return from work. My local vet office and animal control knew me by name because I was always finding lost and displaced pets.

Why you became a pet sitter/dog walker!

I worked for a dog rescue as a lead foster and adoption coordinator, helping to determine which dogs fit best with which people, and also helping to ready the dogs medically, emotionally and with limited training to be the best they could be once they were adopted.

Why do you love working with animals?

I decided then that I wanted to do more. I enrolled and attended The Animal Behavior College out of Santa Clarita California, and graduated with honors with my Dog Training and Handling Certification.

All different types of pets you’ve worked with.

I love to work with all animals not just dogs. I have experience with cats, birds, arachnids, hamsters, chinchillas, ferrets, bearded dragons, and an assortment of other lizards, bugs, and snakes. Not much fazes me, I’m a lover of all living things.

What you think your pet(s) would say about you!!

“Our mom loves us a lot, she even makes sure we are always taken care of no matter if she has to go take care of other dogs!”
