In 1996, I retired from a long career as a Sound Engineer to become a pet sitter. I've always loved animals and cared for animals, and rescue was a big part of my life. My love and compassion towards animals started at an early age thanks to my mother, who always pulled the car over to pick up a stray animal. Our house was full of all kinds of creatures.
I had neighbors who always asked me to pet sit their animals; so I decided I might as well make it a career, and became a pet sitter in Flagstaff. I now offer dog walking, dog boarding, waste removal, errand service, transportation, house check, nail clipping, dog agility training. I am experienced in giving medicine, injections and IV fluids. I also make jewelry as a hobby and offer custom necklaces for dogs.
I have had 13 dogs of my own in my adult life and many cats. There have also been numerous dogs and cats that I rescued over the years and found them wonderful homes. I currently have 5 children; Jack, Charlotte, Frankie, Samantha and Holly.
In my more than 20 years of pet sitting, I have cared for many kinds of animals, from Horses to Snakes and everything in between. I opened my own cat shelter in 1998, worked for numerous local animal rescue/welfare groups, a pet store and volunteered as a foster home.
I am a member of Pet Sitters Associates LLC, Professional United Pet Sitters and certified in Pet CPR and First Aid by Pet Tech. I've had a city business license since 1996. I am a member of Flagstaff Sky High Jumpers Agility Club and Verde Valley Dog Agility Club.
I have been competing in agility since 2010 and I have 3 dogs at the Master's level in AKC and the Elite level in NADAC. In June 2017, my dog Charlotte earned her very prestigious American Kennel Club PACH and PAX titles. I have been teaching agility since 2016.
In March 2017 my dog Charlotte and I attended the AKC National Agility Championships in Perry GA. We finished 28th overall and ran clean in 3 out of 4 events.
At 13 years old Charlotte has competed in her last agility trial. Our final performance before her retirement was at the 2018 AKC National Agility Championships held in Reno, NV. Charlotte finished 13th place overall.
