"Until one has loved an
animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
-- Anatole France
- Does your dog love time at the off leash parks in the Tacoma
area, but you can't
always get him there?
- Do you know your dog's health, behavior, and well being would
benefit from a simple daily walk?
- Are you seeking quality care and pampering for your pets while
you are on vacation?
- Got a new puppy with frequent potty, play and cuddle needs?
- Have you ever wished for help getting your pets to places like
daycare, groomer and Vet appointments?
- Would you feel relief having a home visit for your elderly/ill
pet while you are away for the day.
I can help you with all these pet
care needs and more. Whether doggy day care in the greater Tacoma,
University Place and Gig Harbor areas, off leash walks at Tacoma area parks, or
vacation pet care are just right for you, I can provide all your Tacoma
area pet care needs.
In my new pet friendly vehicle I will pick up your pet from home, and
off we will go for our amazing adventure to Chambers Bay, Point
Defiance, or most any Tacoma area location. At these parks your
canines will have opportunity to run free and frolic with their furry
friends, practice their social graces, and get lots of love and
encouragement during their 30 to 60 minute sessions. Your pets will return safe and satisfied, happy
to see you upon your return.
Some dogs may be more suited to a leashed walk in their familiar
surroundings. Because size and activity level vary greatly, I offer
multiple walk options
30 - 60 minutes.
I can come up to three visits a day for your pets while you are away.
Premium overnights in your home are also available and offer a mid-day visit which may
involve a walk. My pet sitting always includes the basics, but may
allow for extras such as washing and massage. I have even been
known to do some serenading! There is always an
abundance of loving talk and touch for your dear pet. Don't forget the
daily notes, highlighting the bright spots of our time together.
Basic taxi service is provided for all your needs, including but not
limited to day care, groomers, and vets.
My pet care includes leashed dog walking, dog off leash park
adventures, pet transport service, and
pet sitting for a variety of
animals, including overnighters. PAWS For Joy pet pal programs for
seniors are offered at selected sites.
