I am one of the top two sitters in the Low Country with the most 5-star reviews, certifications and canine experience. I love dogs and children. I have taught K-8th grades for 22 years. Due to my love for animals, I have made caring for them my top priority. I do some teaching online, but pet sitting has become mostly full time. I am a certified Dog groomer and CPR Dog Certified through the American Red Cross. I am also currently pursuing a certificate in Dog Behavior/Dog Training. This will soon add another service to my Pet Sitting Business.
My dog Patches and I have Therapy Dog certifications through Therapy Dog International. We volunteer at hospitals, special events, assisted living facilities, and children’s Tail Waggin Tutor Reading Programs at the Library in Beaufort County. I am background checked through Rover. I was a school teacher for 22 years in NY. I hold a Master's Degree in Education, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Today, I teach p/t online and work at my own pet sitting business.
My passions are teaching, music, singing, playing the piano, caring for children, the elderly, and animals. I love traveling and learning about different cultures. I love languages and speak English, Italian, and Spanish. I have some knowledge of Tagalog and I am currently studying Hebrew. While your pup is boarding with me, why not have him groomed? My grooming services are specifically made available for my borders. I do not work for a salon, as I like to do quality work and don't like rushing. Please see my grooming page for my services.
I promise to care for your dog as if they were my own. Your dog will have plenty of walks in our pet-friendly community and exercise in our large fenced back yard. I will report to you three to four times throughout the day and evening. I take plenty of pictures and video clips each day to let you know what your pup is doing. I also do FaceTime. In addition to dogs, I can also care for your cat, small mammals, such as a guinea pig or hamster.
I have had many dogs and cats in my lifetime and have always performed rescue work since I was very young. My mother had nurse's training and used her knowledge and home remedies to assist any strays we rescued. She too had a love for animals.
I am multi-lingual so if you do not speak English, you can write to me in Italian or Spanish to book your stay or to have any questions answered.
