About this pro

I love all types of animals and have cared for all types! I have had and cared for all types of animals my whole life...dogs, cats, horses, snakes, guinea pigs, fish you name it!

I ran my own H/J Horse Show Barn years where I trained horses and riders as well as cared for all of the horses under my training. Therefore if you own a farm and need help with your horses or livestock I am your girl! 

I have also worked with top knotch dog breeding programs taking care of the animals and helped with the process all the way from helping them to breed, helping them to welp and assisting in C-sections   

Since having my twins a few years ago I was forced to close my horse training opperation. Since I have been home with my children I have become a foster for a local dog rescue. I typically Foster litters of puppies until they are adopted out but often have an older Foster dog in the house as well in addition to my one year old "foster failure." There are no animals I have not comfortable caring for. Currently my family has fish, a dog (we just lost ourl older dog) and a guinea pig!

 Additionally, I have experience working with dogs that are in wheelchairs. I also done a lot of dog training and housebreaking, especially with the fosters we have had. I have a lot of experience administratoring medication (can provide through any application needed ie Orally, IM and IV)  as well as grooming, oral care and mail trimming. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

While you're away let the pets play

I love all types of animals and have cared for all types! I have had and cared for all types of animals my whole life...dogs, cats, snakes, horses, turtles, lizards guinea pigs, fish you name it!
While I was first growing my horse business I supplemented my income by working for a dog walking company. While I truly appreciate the opportunity to care for all types of animals, I knew that if I ever did it again my quality of care (including quality of visits, spending more time with each customer and making sure I allowed myself time to check every animal for any issues. There is a place for those business but I knew I could do better. 
I ran my own H/J Horse Show Barn for 15 years where I trained horses and riders as well as cared for all of the animals.
I have also worked with top knotch dog breeding programs taking care of the animals, and helped with the process all the way from helping to get them breed, assisting in both live births as well as C-sections, and the welding process. All the breeding programs I have worked with have been very high quality, with the dogs wellbeing (including being overbred) but some of the programs were smaller and the largest one had over 100 chocolate labs (where Clinton got his chocolate.)
I have assisted both small animal and large animal vets do proceedures, administer IV sedation and pain relief, and have even helped perform surgeries (C-Sections, castrations and others) with the vets guidance. 
Since having my twins a few years ago I was closed my horse business. Since that time I have been home with my children and became a foster for a local dog rescue. I typically Foster litters of puppies until they are adopted out, Often the puppies come with their mother still with them and nursing. At times I have an older Foster dog in the house as well, in addition to my two year old "foster failure." There are no animals I have not comfortable caring for!
Additionally, I have a lot of experience working with older and handicapped dogs. One of my dogs was in a wheelchair for several years. I give shots, IV fluids, worm and can medicate any way needed. I can do eye meds, oral, IV, IM and subcutaneous ly. Any issue that could come up I have handled it before. I also do a lot of dog training and housebreaking, especially with the fosters we have had. 
I also can provide grooming for my furry friends when they come to stay! I provide bath with blow dry, grooming, touch up trims or complete cut downs, oral care, ear cleaning and nail trimming. 
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

FAQs


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

I would discuss with my new client if we feel a meet and greet is needed. Then we would set up a time for that at which time we would schedule the services needed. 


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

I have worked under well respected horse professionals learning the business. Then I started and ran my own training and showing business for 15 years working with both the customer and animal end of the business. 


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

Depends on service, type of animal and number of animals.
