Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: ABOUT ME: Hi there! My name is Amberlyn and I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by dogs my entire life as my mother trained and showed German Shepherds. I have been independently providing pet care for over 5 years now and worked with dogs of various breeds and sizes. I was also incredibly lucky enough to get to attend the Dog Training Internship Academy where I learned from incredible trainers the nuances of dog behavior and training. I have a large amount of experience with puppies in particular as I spent 2 years working at a positive reinforcement-based puppy school, SF Puppy Prep, as a trainer and daycare attendant! TRAININGS: I offer one on one private training sessions that include a personalized training plan shared between you and me where I will update it with various information for you and your dog as we go! What to expect: * We will start with a phone consultation and go over some basic information about you and your dog, as well as what are your exact training needs and expectations. * We will then move to our first in-person session where we will get you and your dog acquainted to me and go over some behaviors you are wanting to work on. * After our first in-person session I will then write out a training plan based off of the information gathered from our phone consultation and in-person session. (Turn around time for training plan is roughly 2-3 days.) * Once we have finalized the training plan we will get to work and begin the training! Pricing: $80/session (pricing is flexible upon request!) SITTINGS: I offer in-home sittings which are best for dogs who suffer from separation anxiety, young puppies, or elderly dogs who need full-time care. My partner of 5 years also assists with these sittings to be sure that your pup is always in safe hands and under supervision. Pricing: Standard Rate: $80/night Holiday Rate: $100/night (If your sitting is longer than 5 days I ask for half before and half after.) DROP-IN VISITS: I offer drop-in visits for animals of all types. Drop-in visits typically are 30min-1hr long and involve feeding, cleaning litter boxes or cleaning tanks. A drop-in visit request can also be used if you just need someone to spend some time with your dog while you go out for the night/day! Pricing: Standard Rate: $30/visit Holiday Rate: $40/visit (For drop-in visits that are 5 days or more I ask for half before and half after.) no by

Amberlyn has been our go-to pet sitter on multiple occasions when my husband and I are away. We have two fluffy pups, one of whom is a sassy senior with special needs, and with Amberlyn, we always have peace of mind. She's not only reliable and trustworthy but also incredibly attentive and communicative. Plus, our home is always spotless after her stay. Amberlyn is simply the best! 10/10 highly recommend!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am flexible and mostly operate on a sliding scale as I understand we all encounter financial troubles occasionally but that doesn't mean our animals should suffer too!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We would first schedule a phone consultation, then from there we can do an in-person meet and greet or a virtual one!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have not only learned through osmosis by working as a trainer/attendant at a local puppy school but I also attended the Dog Training Internship Academy and learned a lot about animal behavior.
