Responsible, Caring and Reliable

Pet care experience

Hi. My name is Daphne and I love animals. I have had many breeds of dogs and cats as pets my whole life. Working with animals is my dream job! I have worked with all kinds of dogs and cats, from energetic and playful to senior, rescues and pets with special needs. Every dog and cat has a unique personality and I enjoy meeting and working with new dogs and cats all the time. I will be a loving and reliable companion to your pets when you aren't available. For almost two years, I volunteered walking dogs at the San Diego Humane Society for several hours each week. This gave me hands on experience with hundreds of wonderful dogs that I wouldn't have been able to work with otherwise. I also volunteered walking dogs and socializing puppies, cats, and kittens for over a year at Helen Woodward. I was a Red level dog handler-requiring the highest level of skills on their yellow, orange and red scale. I treat all animals with love and respect as if they were my own. I am very responsible and reliable. I am a Certified Professional Animal Care Provider (CPACP) from PACCC and I am a Professional Pet Sitter CPPS from PSI. I have a Certificate of Completion of Cat and Dog First Aid including CPR. I have a Certificates of Completion from the Fear Free Shelters Program and the Fear Free Pet Sitters Program. Its mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS) in pets (both dogs and cats) by inspiring and educating the people who care for them. I am also certified by IBPSA as a Canine Care Specialist and a Feline Care Specialist. I have gone through dog training with my own dogs and am actively training my dog, Roxy, for American Kennel Club Good Canine Citizenship certification through positive reinforcement. Making sure your pets are safe, happy and healthy is my priority. Let me know if you have a special situation and I can easily customize a rate for you. I want you to feel completely comfortable with me so contact me and we can meet soon.

I was referred to daphne by a friend and have been trusting her with my dog since I first brought him home, he loves her. She is very reliable and I wouldn’t be able to manage having a dog and working full time without her help!

We very happy to have met Daphne. Our fur-kid loves his daily walks with her. They go on long and enjoyable walks. Daphne updates us consistently along with photos. It put my heart to ease knowing our boy is taking well taken care of. We will definitely hire Daphne again. Hi recommend Daphne to dog parents who wants the best care for their dogs.

Information Daphne F. would like to know about your pet

Is there anything you'd like me to know about your pet? How would you describe your pets personality? Is your pet shy, tentative, aggressive, friendly, outgoing, energetic? Are there any behavioral or health issues? Has your dog done any obedience training? Is he/she reactive to other dogs? How is your dog on a leash? Does he/she pull on leash? I enjoy all breeds and don't have any breed biases.

A typical day

Is there anywhere special you'd like me to walk your dog in the neighborhood? Does your dog have any special toys or treats? Some dogs love to play ball or be brushed on their visits. I will be a great companion to your dog when you need one.
