For as long as I can remember, I have deeply loved animals. After getting my first job grooming dogs and then working at a vet hospital as a teen, I knew that my career had to focus on caring for pets. After graduating from Vet School in Texas, I worked as a veterinarian for over 30 years and never had a single, boring day. I’ve now decided to retire in the beautiful city of Asheville but my love and affection for working with animals has only grown, leading me to start my pet care business. Although I am no longer a practicing Veterinarian, I am so thrilled to offer one-on-one care for pets backed by years of professional experience that can be completely customized to their unique needs. I am currently focused on care in West Asheville. Please call to discuss my service area.
what I offer
Play Dates: From taking your dog to the dog park for some fun socializing or bringing two dog friends together for an afternoon of play, these are a great way to give your pet interaction and exercise. We can bring along your dog’s favorite, outdoor toys or I will provide some to engage and occupy them. Each play date is customized to your dog’s needs and comfort.
Pet Walking: Depending on your dog’s age and energy level, I can help determine how much exercise he needs so he’s happy and healthy when you get home! Walks are a great way to get your pet out and about to enjoy the day, get some good movement, and engage their senses as they explore the neighborhood.
Dog Training: I offer basic dog training, which includes house training and working with certain behavioral problems. Please contact me to discuss your dog’s needs and how I can help.
Cat Sitting: I offer customized day visits for your cat while you are out of town. Depending on your cat’s needs and personality, I ensure that your pet is well fed and watered and gets some interaction and love while you are out of town.
Do you have another pet that needs care? Please contact me so we can chat about your needs!
