Peach and Spyder still love their walks with Felicia. They are not as keen about having their nails cut but Felicia makes it fast and accurate.
Felicia is so nice, and she was so great with our dogs!! One of them is a big guy who's scared/defensive around new people, and she handled him no problem. She stayed overnight and was very communicative, updating us with pictures every day. I plan to hire her again, and would definitely recommend hiring her!
Felicia has been caring for and walking Bonnie for over a month now and I can say she is reliable, knowledgeable about dog behavior, and awesome with my older pup. She’s quick to handle the Rover bookings, tunes in with me before the week starts to confirm schedule, and even helps in last minute binds! She helped me with Bonnie’s split pad, real smart about quick home vet care! I would absolutely recommend her!
Groomer and Trainer= loving pup pro
Since getting my first dog at age 5, after begging for a dog since I could string the sentence together at 2, I have never had a time I didn't have a dog or at least maintain working with them while in between dogs.
I started working with dogs at the age 7 in 4-H, showing and training in obedience, grooming and handling, and dog care. I placed first in dog care my first year ...
What Felicia would like to know about your dog
Let me know if your dog has any specific handling needs- if they're dog reactive, fearful, don't like children, hats, etc. I love herding and working breeds as a trainer, but I love working with all breeds from Chis to Danes.
***As I am located in Edgewood, any bookings across the river are subject to an additional $2+/per visit due to tolls and extra gas mileage. Bookings outside of my 10 mi radius start with a $7 travel add-on. ***
***I am a non-smoker, and allergic to smoke and vape. I unfortunately cannot accept house sitting bookings where smoking or vaping occurs inside the home.***
House sitting: I typically arrive around 7pm, and leave 7am. Drop-ins for midday in addition to house-sitting stay are $15 each and booked individually. If a house-sitting stay starts before 7pm on the first day, or goes past 7am the last day, a drop-in must be booked in order to be sure I have enough time in my walk schedule to come back and let out your pup at the time needed. ☺️
Training Meet and eval- $20. I see where your dog's training is, what problems you're dealing with, discuss what route you want to take with training and schedule your first training session. Afterwards I will write up a custom preview lesson plan and send it to you.
Private one-on-one training- $40/45-min session based off your customized lesson plan.
Training Walks- $3/additional. Training based walk where we review and practice your current cues and/or leash walking problems during a 30 min walk.
Excursions-$2+/additional. Trip to the dog park, Belle Isle, the hardware store etc. Add-on cost is dependent on length of time you wish for the excursion and drive distance, and if it is a training excursion.
