About The Biz
During the initial Meet and Greet you're able to meet and form a personal relationship with your pet sitter and they form a relationship with your pet. So you can be comfortable, confident and most important, you have someone you can trust with your pet and in your home allowing your pets to keep their same eating, medication and exercise routines ensuring calm, comfortable pets.
I created TSP out of my love for animals and my own personal need for a pet
sitter. I found myself skipping vacations or staying behind to watch our
pets. I just didn't know who to ask or who I could trust to care for my
pets. I soon realized other pet lovers have this same problem and in October 2010 The Strolling Pooch was born.
Instead of rushing home at lunch, cutting your date night short or worrying on your weekend away, The Strolling Pooch can take away the stress of pet care so you can eat your lunch in peace, enjoy your time with family and friends and most importantly relax!
So if your appointment or meeting is running late, or you're stuck in traffic, The Strolling Pooch can help with that too. We're happy to stop in for a Quick Visit. Trust us your Pooch will Thank You.
I am a lifelong Animal lover. I have always had Animals in my life from very small to very large.I have owned practically every critter under the sun. From Little Lizards to Hefty Horses. I've been Walking Dogs, Caressing Kitty's, Feeding Fish and Messing with small Mammals for around 30 years. That's over 150 dog years!
I was a stay at home mom for the past 12 yrs. Now that my children are older I am able to pursue what truly makes me happy. I enjoy learning new information regarding animal nutrition, behavior, and training. I'm always full of helpful tips and often use a clicker as my preferred training method. Clicker training offers clear communication and fast positive results.
I enjoy working with my pets and would like to pursue Therapy work in the future and participate in the Sit Stay Read program at local Schools and Library's.
