I’m not all about giving 5 star reviews but In this case it was well deserved. I pride myself on taking good care of my dogs and think I knew it all. My dog Zeus had some anxiety issues that caused him to be aggressive and it was breaking our family apart. And he was on his way to getting rehomed. Doves academy.. took him in and helped him to be a dog again . And helped us to work with Zeus anxiety unsteady of against it. He is a better dog so far and we understand him better.. willie was professional, knowledgeable, relatable, and overall great to work with.. and we will be requesting to work with him again.

My primary profession is giving piano instruction but have also worked as a Concierge, so I suppose serving others is what primarily motivates me. People trust me to give them the service they need and want.

About

Let's face it: Our pets become part of our families, an important part. They are our companions, our protectors, and our friends who miss us when we are away. When we leave, our animals do not understand where the rest of their "pack" or their "pride" went, and this can be difficult for our pets to deal with. PAWfect Pet Services takes pride in dog walking and cat care services. I continue to educate myself on the human/animal connection, because I believe the better we can understand animal behavior, the better we can communicate and understand each other. This in turn helps us cohabit with our pets and live a more peaceful existence. Which is why I started PAWfect Pet Services, so I could help you and your pets. Rest assured I will do my very best in making sure that your companions are cared for while you are away, and I am honored with this responsibility. Our services include the following: * Client Consultations * Unlimited Email Consults * Customized Dog Walks * Custom Cat Care Plans * Exercise Plans * Dog Park Adventures * Nutritional Advice * Behavior Modification * Holistic Care Plans

I have loved animals for all of my life. That makes 60 some year!! I am a retired healthy, reliable lady who would not disappoint you, by being irresponsible or not taking proper care of your animals. Since I have been dealing with animals for so may years I have a body of knowledge about them that only comes with age and experience!! As far as my art experience I have been doing portraits of children. adults and pets since the 70's. I have only had in all of those years one person who was unhappy with the portrait I did for them, so I did the portrait over at no extra charge and they were very happy with the second one.

Recently I lost 2 of my child hood dogs to cancer so I am looking to be around as many furry friends as possible! :) I can administer medication with the proper instructions, walk your furry friend in one of the most beautiful neighborhood's in town, and do many other things for them! I consider myself to be a very punctual, friendly, caring person. My hobbies include, traveling, boating, going for walks in the Joselyn Castle neighborhood and going to a concert or two. You will always feel at ease when I am watching/caring for your pets!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is included in a dog grooming?

Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

What does a dog walker do?

We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

  • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
  • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
  • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
  • What are your different walk routes?
  • When will you pick up and drop off?
  • How will we communicate?
  • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
  • What’s your cancellation policy?
  • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
  • How and how often do I pay you?
  • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

What is a dog groomer?

A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

What is a dog groomer?

Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

  • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
  • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
  • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
  • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
  • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
  • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
