Riva loves animals with all her heart. As a Petsmart manager, she knows what her animals need, and she communicates with them naturally and professionally. She has good common sense with her animals: she will do all she can to save them from discomfort, but she will not allow their discomfort (or hers) to keep them from getting what they need.

  • Verified Background Check

Animals are literally all I do!

A proud fur mama since birth, I have never been without animals (not just mammals), and even prefer their company at times over people. I'm a full time manager at a pet store/groomers, and have seen every shape, size, and age walk through our doors. I have experience with grooming pets as well as training them and believe every dog is different and therefore have different needs. But I find we need animals more ...

When Riva watches your pet

An average overnight at my place would include loads of play time with me and my own doggy, some serious butt scratches, as well as a good chance of getting some treats depending on the dogs dietary restrictions, of course. If I hear clicking while they walk I may trim up their nails while they're with me, provided parents are ok with this. But I can garuntee while they are with me they will always be under observation, and possibly given too much affection. If that's even possible.
