Pets have always been a part of my life and I would be delighted to care for yours. I grew up the daughter of a veterinarian and have cared for every type of animal imaginable. At a young age we bred and raised Golden Retrievers. I have raised and trained many dogs and currently have three dogs of my own. I have a 8-year-old Shi Tzu who is blind and has special medical needs. I have a 3-month-old Golden Retriever puppy and a 6-year-old Pomeranian/American Eskimo mix. In addition I have three wonderful playful and entertaining cats. I am currently working on a Master's degree in Human-Canine Life Sciences at Bergin University for Canine Studies. After 20 years working in the nonprofit sector I have decided to pursue my true passion and work with animals. Upon completion of my degree, I look forward to working in the Service Dog Industry and as a personal trainer/care taker.

I have been caring for animals since I was a small child. I have been pet sitting for friends and family members since I was about 8 years old. I received a bachelors degree in animal science from UC Davis, and I have worked at shelters, boarding and daycare facility, a pet groomer, and an animal show. Throughout my various animal jobs, I have learned all aspects of animal care including feeding, training, cleaning, basic home grooming, and medicating. These experiences have also given me opportunities to work will all kinds of animals both domestic and exotic.

Pet Care, Dog Training, Dog Walking
Since 2005, I have been working with dogs. In January 2014, I established my own business, where I walk and train dog owners dogs. One of my first pet jobs through Care. com was to work with a family with two, 3-year-old Labradoodles. The dogs were having behavior issues when the owners were walking the dogs in their neighborhood (straining and barking at other dogs, not always walking at "heel"). After three sessions with the owners and the dogs, the owners said that there was a big improvement in their behavior. I really enjoy being outdoors and I walk dogs in the summer heat, the snow, and rain. Most of all, I love dogs. I am a retired licensed social worker (LMSW) with the State of New York. In the past, I worked for a reputable and renowned service dog organization in Westchester County, NY (from 2005-June, 2015). I trained service dogs for disabled persons with this organization.

Pet Sitter/Walker With Animal Training Background
Hello! My name is Christine and I would love the opportunity to help you with your pets! Before relocating to the Columbia area for my husband's job, I studied and was in the animal field as an animal trainer/zoo keeper for over 6 years. I have a lot of experience caring for animals of all sizes/species/temperaments and have the skills and knowledge to give excellent, professional care to your pets. I can work on behavioral training during my stay if you would like and I can also administer any medication they need. Throughout my professional animal career, I administered medication is all manners (oral pills, in food, tubed meds, topical, etc.) and I am comfortable with all of the above. I also try to make the medication process as stress-free as possible. Before I start, all I need is a run down on who they are as an individual (likes/dislikes/special mannerisms/etc.) so I can personalize my care for them. I have no breed restrictions. With my in depth knowledge of animal behavior in general and dog breed-specific behavior, I know the best way to adapt and work with your furry friends. So if you want your pets in great hands and your mind to be at ease while you're away, send me a message!
