The best thing about Sydney is that from the initial introduction you recognize that she is a responsible person. She asks the right questions and truly seems to care about your pet(s). I felt confident that she would take great care of my pups and sent many photos while we were away. It's difficult to leave your pets with someone you don't know but with Sydney I had no concerns. AND she came by ...

Zookeeper care for your pets!

I grew up petsitting various animals, riding horses, and volunteering at animal shelters and wildlife rescue facilities. I have a degree in zoology and environmental science. I am now an animal caretaker for a variety of exotic animals and I have pets of my own at home. I am knowledgable about positive reinforcement animal training and I am very willing to help dog owners learn how to train their dogs or other pets at home ...

What Sydney would like to know about your dog

I love big dogs especially and have experience being around large animals. But I love all sizes (my own dog is on the small side). I like to know beforehand what activity level a dog has and what he/she enjoys doing. My background is in animal training and it is always a huge interest of mine when I am around animals. So what kind of training does your dog have and is there anything your dog does that you don't like (such as rushing the front door when it opens)? Maybe I can help come up with some solutions!

When Sydney watches your pet

There are so many green spaces for dog walking around the Houston area. I am very safety conscious and will only walk a dog in an area that has good sidewalks and good visibility of dangers such as cars and other dogs. I will not bring a dog to a dog park unless asked to by owners or unless I know the dog very well. I have roommates that are also animal caretakers and they are available to help me on my busy days to make sure a pet gets plenty of attention and care. So whether its long distance walks to get the wiggles out or just a short jaunt down the street, or if your pet just needs a pillow to lie on, I am here to please!
