About this pro

I hope you are having a good day. I am 13 years old, but I have been pet sitting for most of my life. I study animals, mostly canines and  felines. I have had 2 parakeets, 28 fish, 2 dogs, 5 cats, 1 snake, 1 gecko, 4 rats, 2 bunnies, and I have fostered kittens that I’ve rescued, and I volunteer and rescue for Priceless Pet Rescue-a no kill animal rescue. With the help of my mom when I was 5, I hand-reared a baby blue bird in Virginia. I am living in Chino, love Dog Walking and can't wait to meet your prized pets! I am an equestrian, and I know how to muck stalls, brush horses, wash horses, tack up, and I can ride in western and English tack. I know how to use hackamores, bit less bridles, and bits. I know how to lunge a horse as well. I admire every animal, and I have a big dog of my own. I can care for many animals and train dogs too. I do obedience training and trick training. Don’t look too much at my age, I’ve been studying animal behavior and anatomy ever since I could read! I now how to do dog, puppy, cat, and kitten CPR! I can care for only certain exotic pets, particularly smaller ones. I look forward to speaking with you!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

My typical process when working with a new customer usually starts off by getting to know them a little. I want to know when you got the animal, where, why, how, and what your usual routine with them is. I will need to know  what you feed them and the portion sizes given. I will need to know the animal’s temperament and if they’re aggressive in certain circumstances or certain animals or emotions. For a dog, I would also like to know where you walk them (if you do), and what methods of exercise are used. If there is anything else you would like to know about me or you want to tell me about you, please do. I am always willing to take or give advice or get to know you better. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I go to animal training classes all the time. I volunteer at several animal hospitals/shelters such as Priceless Pet Rescue, Red Bucket Rescue, Best Friends Animal Society, The Humane Society, and many more. The owner of Priceless Pet Rescue has been giving me animal training and vet care lessons for about 3 years now. I also watch training videos and test methods on my own dog and cat. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

It’s simple really. I am trained to hand-rear puppies and kittens, and I also know how to wean puppies and kittens into eating real food. The smaller the animal, the less the cost. The more services provideD by me will add a small extra charge (only if the service I provide is asked for by the owners will I proceed to do it). Animals that need training asked for by the owners might cost a bit more depending on the situation. If your animal hurts me on accident, out of fear or impulsive actions, I have no permanent damage, and you have already notified me of it, no extra charges will be accommodated. Just as long as the injury is not severe all should be well. 


How did you get started in this business?

I have always been fond for animals, so I wanted to revolve my life around it. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with dogs that bite their owners, cats that attack, and many other potentially "dangerous" animals. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Make sure you trust the sitter you hire. Read about them, and maybe even try to set up a lunch meeting with them. If you don’t feel that great about the sitter, then don’t hire them! You always want to have the best care for your animals, so what I say is, don’t settle for anything less what you expect from your dream pet sitter! If I don’t have a certain quality that you would prefer for me to have in order to care for your animal, that is perfectly okay. I want the best for your animal, so please, if I am what you are looking for to watch over your beloved animal don’t be afraid to contact me! Feel free to ask any questions you have about me and me experience in working with animals, I am always willing to answer!


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Always assess the situation and behavior before paying money. You could also meet up with a trainer at a park and they might be able to tell you what’s going on and how to help. You might think you have an aggressive or dangerous animal, but there are so many actions that may trigger an aggressive look. In my opinion, time is sometimes the only payment needed.
