Meet Terri

I have had pets my entire life. I have trained five of my own dogs through local dog training organizations that focus on positive reinforcement, owner education and developing an understanding of animal behavior. I will support and reinforce your training efforts. In addition, my family has volunteered with Fidos for Freedom and at the MCHS. I have been a pet-sitter and dog walker for numerous families in our neighborhood and spent a great deal of time at local dog parks. This has provided tremendous insight into dog behavior. In addition to the two dogs that I currently have as pets I also have a feisty fun Maine coon cat. We have adopted/rescued several pets over the years and I am familiar with shy/fearful/reactive behaviors and the importance of establishing trust. I am fit and love hiking, cycling and swimming. I have a BS in Health Care Administration/Communication. I am kind, gentle and observant. I would treat your pet as a family member.

Terri provided enriching care for my three children for two consecutive summers. She is creative and caring. She took them on all kinds of adventures from hikes to museums. She did art projects, summer tutoring, swim lessons, reading and much more. She watched our dog when we were out of town and always tidied up the house even though it was not in job description. She modeled respect and compassion and my kids adored her. We still keep in touch even though we have moved out of state. You would be lucky to have her be a part of your family!
