Big and small I love them all.

Owned and trained animals most of my life. BS Animal Science from Iowa State University, Animal Behavior College Certified Dog trainer( ABCDT), worked as a veterinary assistant for 13 years at two different hospitals. I have volunteered at Animal Welfare Center in Milan, IL. and Polk county, IA. walking and training dogs. Owner and head trainer at BFF K9 and Pet Services. At my house at some point...horses, dogs, chickens, goats, sheep, fish, pocket ...

What Donna would like to know about your dog

Where they aquired their dog, and how long have they owned them. Have they ever showed aggression toward other animals or people? Any information that could effect how the animal is cared for, or safety issues. I have no breed preference as each animal is an individual. I can jog 5miles, or sit on the couch and scratch bellies. Maybe somewhere in between will work too. I'm not afraid of, nor do I dislike any breeds or groups. If the dog has past or current injuries, allergies, or sensitivities I like to know that.

About Donna's Home

When Donna watches your pet

Like they are my own pets. If non aggressive they can come into my house with my other dogs. If too hyper or not nice, they will be crated at nights in the basement or kitchen, depending on the temperatures and the breed of dog. Thick coated dogs, like my shephard, are more comfortable in the basement because it is the coldest place in the house when the AC is on. I want them to be happy and comfortable at my house, so they will enjoy it and want to come back. We spend a lot of time outside with our dogs playing fetch, hide and seek, swimming in the pond with my son, or practicing obedience and tracking.

I'm an outdoors person all the way. I walk, run, ride bike,and horses. Go to dog park in Bettendorf, IA. because of the large number of different dog breeds and responsible owners to visit with there. I like to take a dog with me, weather permitting, on all errands and visits. If your dog is well socialized and shows no aggressive behaviors I can take him/her to my farmstead to play, in the fenced part of the yard, and help me weed the gardens and dig in the dirt...be a dog. I will clean up after your pets, and can groom and bathe them at my house, if you wish. All levels of care can be accommodated per your request. I look forward to meeting with you and your pet(s).
