Carole’s Bio

Greetings!

My professional career was in the computer industry, but I am now happily fulfilling my life-long passion to help and care for animals. As an animal lover all my life, I am a believer that gentleness, a calm demeanor, and a loving attitude build trust and create a happy, comfortable environment for animals. I am very dedicated, responsible, patient, and loving; your pets will receive excellent care and attention from me!

Over my lifetime, I have loved, cared for, and rescued many animals of my own: dogs, rabbits, birds, cats, lizards, fish, and a horse. I have also taken care of friends and neighbors pets for as long as I can remember. Certified as a dog groomer, I gained even more experience caring for animals that were not my own. I have enjoyed volunteering for weekly pet adoption functions; have attended workshops at Best Friends Animal Society in Utah; assisted in animal rescue efforts in Austria. Many years ago, I worked for a veterinarian handling all aspects of animal care. And now, of course, I have been caring for other folks pets on a regular basis. My clients have anywhere from one pet to over 20 pets and I thoroughly enjoy them all!

I would be happy to sit overnight for any number or type of pets you may have; from fish to farm animals, I love them all. The type of care to be provided is totally determined by you. Some examples are nature walks, active play, bathing and brushing, medications, feeding, waste cleanup, mail/newspaper pickup, watering plants/gardens, etc.. Even if you do not request exercise or play or anything specific I will be their constant companion as I am sure they will be missing you. You will receive daily updates by text or email and photos too!

The overnight rate listed is based on 24 hours of care, generally noon to noon.

Happy Day!
Carole

We have a rescue dog with a special personality, and it can be tough to find care for him when we're out of town. He's terrified of strangers, but is 100lbs - not aggressive whatsoever, but still a little intimidating to most people! Also, we know that boarding is incredibly stressful for him. We contacted Carole, and she said she'd be happy to meet him and see where it went.

From our initial meeting, we were sure we'd found "the one". Carole is incredibly confident around animals, which I believe they can sense and recognize that she is in charge. This really put our mind at ease when leaving for two weeks. Also, she really goes above and beyond just "keeping him alive" (as my husband jokes that our previous boarder did). Our guy has a lot of energy, and she played with him and wore him out daily. We also loved that she sent daily update emails, including photos!

Carole is incredibly competent and detail oriented. She asked lots of questions, such as medications that he's taking, where he goes for veterinary care, how often he eats, etc. - things that we would have forgotten to fill her in on. For the first time in three years, we left our guy alone without a single concern. This was such a relief.

And the icing on the cake is that she took great care to leave our house just as it was when we left. Although I wouldn't have minded too terribly, because the dog was the main priority, it was so thoughtful of her and nice to come home to a clean home. Our dog misses her, and we're already planning our next vacation :)
