Good news! You already do! Doggies are amazing; they love wholeheartedly & unconditionally! We owe it to them to provide the best we can. That's where I come in...
I provide specialized and focused pet care in my home which is completely doggy-proof and able to accommodate them. The backyard is large, easily accessible, and completely secured by a tall wooden fence. Doggies are provided with a fun and safe place to play under my constant supervision. As a stay-at-home mom and online university student, they are always under a loving and watchful eye!
Although I am solely responsible for your fur-baby's well-being, they will also get lots of love & attention from the rest of my loving household which consists of my husband & our two teen sons who love dogs as much as I do! Doggies are never left alone in the house and are welcome to couches, beds, or wherever they are comfortable and safe.
I only accept one guest (one family) at a time unless specific permission is granted by the owner to host a companion to promote the development of social skills. Otherwise, your doggy will be the only one in my home during their stay. Please note that facilities both inside and outside are thoroughly cleaned and properly sanitized on a daily basis to prevent the risk of bacterial contamination or transfer.
Your doggie's safety, comfort, and happiness are my top priority when you choose to leave them in my care. My approach to pet care is based on techniques and methods I have learned through years of education and hands-on experience working in the animal behavior and healthcare industry.
My expectations include a mutual respect between myself and your fur-baby that is established through kind interaction and patience. With your permission, basic training methods will be introduced and enforced to apply techniques acquired through my education and background in animal behavior.
*Although I take a liberal approach to pet care, owner's instructions are always enforced to be consistent with rules and/or training practiced in your home.
My career began as an intern in an animal hospital while earning a Vet Tech degree; I continued to stay on with them for another seven years. More recently, I enjoyed working with champion Dressage horses for four years while managing a large stable and training facility in Snohomish County.
I've worked with doggies of all ages, breeds, & temperaments and have working knowledge & education in various areas of animal healthcare, behavior, and training methods.
Our doggy was very happy after staying with Amber and her family for 19 nights while we were out of town. It was obvious that she had been loved on just like home. We won’t hesitate to use Amber again the next time!
Both my dogs have a ton of energy and when I brought them home, they just passed out tired. Amber was able to give them the time they needed. Very satisfied.
Amber was such a kind, attentive sitter for our pup. We are pretty picky/protective of our 10 month old, but something felt right leaving her with Amber. She seemed very happy when we picked her up, and we are already booked for more stays. Thank you again!!!
