Pet sitting fun!

I love surprising my clients by teaching their animals a few basic tricks and commands.

Neela is a new addition to her family and was rescued from a hoarding situation in New Hampshire. She came home and acclimated very quickly.  Neela's personality is goofy, fun, sweet and smart but she was never taught the basic principles of manners in a home. So, that's what we worked on. Everyday I would take two minutes out of our regular visits to teach her - with treats and positive reinforcement. First sit and down then giving both paws. Recently, I taught her "bang." I say the word and she rolls on her back in a stay position. This was just a fun trick and she has fun doing it! We're still working on not jumping when excited but at least I know she is happy when I'm around. :)

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks??

Outside fun time!

Even with the crazy New England weather we still have fun outdoors! Zach loves to play fetch and chase in the yard. He'll have more snow to roll around in this week!

There is a winter storm warming tues-thurs. If you are staying home because of poor road condition please let us know. We absolutely do our best to visit your furry friends in a timely manner during these times! We certainly understand snow cancellations. Also, if we are unable to service your area during the storm we will be sure give you ample notice.

Thank you in advance!!

Unexpected Sleepover

Roads are bad tonight so I'm staying at my last visit for the night. My client was very generous to open her home to me. I'm sure Lilly won't mind either!
