Portia had a lot on her hands with our lively little 8 month old puppy who was definitely not used to a) us not at home and b) us not at home! We were gone for 10 days and it was the first time for little Edie. Fortunately Portia was upbeat and humorous and playful and communicative and sent us great pictures of the highs and lows of puppy and her 11 year old playpal ...

Portia was very responsive, polite, friendly, and loves animals. We scheduled an initial consultation and our two dogs plus guinea pig were very happy to be around her.

Your Furbaby's New Bestfriend!

There is no need to worry about where Marie, Talousie, Pongo, and Perdita will be while you're away! Purrs And Wags will be your furry best friend's companion for whatever they may need.

My name is Portia and I have been an animal lover all my life--now it's time for me to love on yours! I used to be a veterinary technician, so if they are in need of medication you needn't worry about someone ...

What Portia would like to know about your dog

I strongly encourage Meet and Greets! This is a way for owners and pets to get to know me and adjust to a new person being around. I have ZERO breed preferences, I am definitely not a Breedist. Poms to Rots, I love them all!

Please tell me every little thing about your dog! I want to know about their day; what are their routines? Do they have preferred walking routes, and are there things we need to avoid? How are their social skills? Do they like to hit the dog park and make new friends or are they more of a loner? Do they have special medical or behavioral needs? What are their training cues?
