Pets are our children, IYKYK 💕

Pet care experience

Along with caring for my own pups and animals growing up, I also worked in animal husbandry for over 6 years caring for various livestock and wildlife. I am a trained foster dog parent and have successfully rehomed five rescues after intensive behavior training and love. I now also have my own special needs (deaf) rescue pup who is my forever shadow and light, a spunky rabbit who rules the house, and two foster bunnies looking for their fur-ever home! (Let me know if you’re interested in adopting! 🙂) I look forward to having the opportunity to provide loving care to your furry four-legged children!

Issana is the best dog sitter in the world! Our dogs instantly fell in love despite being shy and scared of all strangers.

My 2 cats look forward to Issana’s visits! She spends quality time with them, giving them lots of love, treats, and playtime. Issana always sends the best pictures, all of them showing how much Ziggy and Evie enjoy her coming by. Issana puts me at ease with her updates that she sends each visit. She is my go to pet sitter and is the only one I trust with my babies.

Information Issana T. would like to know about your pet

I am happy to provide service to all pet breeds, species, and personalities. Please let me know if your pet may require special accommodations, or if there are specific behaviors you are actively working on with your pet. I will want to provide consistency for your pet, so this information is helpful.

A typical day

Daily play and enrichment is key for a happy pet! Depending on the personality of your pet and/or guided by specific instructions from the owner, I may engage my clients with nose work, fetching games, enrichment toys, etc. I practice positive reinforcement and reward natural positive behaviors. I have a large yard for pups to run and can also take pups for walks to Celebration Park or the BPA trail near by.
