Deanna is always great with our pets, and very prompt with communication. So grateful she’s nearby!
Deanna was incredibly communicative and took fantastic care of my apartment and pups. Cannot recommend her highly enough.
Deanna has dog-sat and stayed in our home on several times now and frankly our dogs probably have more fun with her than they do with us. We get lots of pictures throughout her stay of the dogs either out doing something fun or relaxing at home. Deanna is also excellent about communicating questions or updates and always leaves our house cleaner than she found it. Would recommend with no reservations.
Traveling All Around Pet-Sitter!
I’ve been caring for, working with, and training just about every type of common and exotic animals since I was a small child. My family always had lots of pets and I’ve been active in animal care related jobs besides just pet sitting from a young age. My undergraduate degree is in equine science (and business management) and I did internships with a horse rescue and training organization and with a large animal ...
What Deanna would like to know about your dog
I'm all about Meet & Greets. I definitely want to make sure your dog likes me and that we can get along together because it’s all about the comfort of your beloved pet. I'm always excited to meet new dog friends, so there's no way I won't come in happy to see them and get on their level to meet with them (if they're ok with that). I like spending time cuddling up with dogs and grooming them as much as I like to go outside for long walks or games of tug and fetch depending on what they'd rather do. Otherwise, I just try to learn from the owner what the dog likes or dislikes most so I can emulate that in my care for them as much as possible.
Please inform me of any special care (medical/dietary/quirks/etc.) needs or any behavioral issues the dog has. I also strongly prefer setting up a Meet & Greet before I care for your pets to make sure that I know everything I need to know before I’m on my own with them. Leaving written instructions and/or texting or emailing me all the necessary info is also strongly encouraged! I don't mind dogs or any other pets that need some extra attention or precautions to be well taken care of; I just like knowing what they're like ahead of time so I can make sure I understand all their care needs to keep them as safe and happy as possible while you're away.
