Hello! I am a nanny, tutor, pet and house sitter who genuinely love pets. After 14 years of serving families in the Aventura area, they keep on trusting and recommending me to other new families. Occasionally when the children grew up, I ended taking care of their estates, pets, running errands, contractors, mail and anything pending at home. I am currently living in Dania at the Griffin Road area. I have verifiable local references, background check, clean driving record, able to offer pet pickup and drop off service (prior arrangements/transport/negotiable hourly rates $10-50+), will also drive your pet to groomer and vet visits.
I like to work on maintaining lower and sort of a calm energy interaction that works pretty well when owners are away or busy. I have successful experience caring for Labs, Goldens, Spaniels, Chihuahua, and Chesapeake Bay, Beagles, Shih Tzu, birds and cats. Currently offering only at "your home service "overnight pet sitting and walks, when scheduled in advance, and would positively consider adding other house related tasks or errands, if necessary.(negotiable).
Boarding service will probably resume in 2015. I liked to offer a calm environment to pets at my home. Right now when visiting I am committed to a daily walk (or as many times as arranged previously), expecting to work with well-behaved pets (Yes, I help enforce existing or suggested techniques) or at least dogs without major behavior issues.
If interested, we can arrange to bring your pet to a park or a specific activity. I rescued two cats that are very well behaved, and I trained them to walk on a leash. They stay home and met almost every pet that I have taken care off.
List of contacts and Pet emergency information written is required before service starts. My motto: "Once you leave, the pet is treated like it's mine". I am able to assist in emergencies, as pet taxi, and able to administering medications while keeping a diary.
I am planning on opening a cage less pet day care with night boarding, when time permits, but for now I am involved in getting the education and experience necessary.
