Ivy’s Bio

My name is Ivy Lantz, I am 34 yrs old and I have an extension background working with animals. I worked for a local grooming shop for 4 years, I'm fully trained in grooming dogs/cat of all breeds and sizes. I have worked with a lot of "challenging" grooming dogs and done so successfully. Grooming takes a lot of patience and understanding, which I have, and it's been something that can't be taught. I still do some grooming at my home now. I've previously worked for a doggie daycare in Cedar Rapids, IA and enjoyed it, but I left to focus on school. I'm always looking for some extra work and experience. Honestly it's not exactly work when you do something you love. I'm a firm believer that you can never have too much experience because every animal has a different personality, different motivations, and I truly enjoy learning about them.

I currently have two dogs, Tito's a 5 yr old shih tzu/soft coated wheaten mix. I adopted him from the CRACC at 8 weeks. Ares was adopted at 8 mos old in 2014, I drove to Nashville to get him. He's now a 4 yr old American Stafforshire Terrier/Pit Bull mix; he's truly the sweetest guy ever. I have MANY people who can vouch for him and honestly people who aren't fond of the breed, love him. He has no idea he's not big dog and he's in a house with two other small animals so he thinks he's also little, but also follows He absolutely loves people, other dogs/cats, kids, etc. My dogs get the joy of going to daycare regularly and went to work at the grooming shop with me, so they get a lot of exposure to other dogs and cats. We do a lot of social interaction work because I want to keep them working on their manners every chance/opportunity we have. I also have a cat named Cairo who is a 6yr old ragdoll. He's dog friendly and kid friendly, but doesnt care for other cats.

I have a lot of experience with pet sitting in my home or the owner's home as well as check in's for clients, family, friends, co-wokers, neighbors, chiropractor, and they always refer others to me. I've done in-home volunteer work for the CRACC as well as at the facility whenever I get a chance to get over there. I'm able to administer medications when needed, ahere to any special diet requirements, give baths/fullngrooming if needed, I believe strongly in giving positive reinforcement corrections and praises. Prices are not firm; they may vary or be negotiated depending on services provided.If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to ask!
