Petra’s Bio

35 years of animal care have profoundly shaped who I am. I cannot imagine life without animals and wish for everyone to experience the unique and priceless enrichment an animal brings to one's life! I am passionate about providing the best for the animals in my care and putting their owners' minds at ease. A dog owner myself, I am all too familiar with the common anxieties that plague a pet parent when the beloved family member is left in someone else's care.

I am confident to provide your pet with expert care! I grew up surrounded by a big family of animals, including farm animals, and tirelessly not only cared for them but also passionately studied everything animal related. As the (former) parent of two Catahoula Leopard dogs, a breed that is exceedingly energetic, independently thinking, and requiring a solid amount of physical and mental stimulation, I decided to complete a dog trainer certificate program with Denver Dog works (in 2007). My two boys passed their Canine Good Citizen Test with flying colors and were thriving on the additional training work! My pet family also included 2 incredible cats and a 55 gallon tropical freshwater fish tank. I was heartbroken when I had to part with my beloved pets due to the unforeseen need to move back to Europe. Emotional rescue came in form of a little blue-eyed Dachshund. Last April I adopted Schnitzel (or she adopted me!), who I now consider my right hand. She has the most affectionate and social personality and works hard to win over even the most aloof dogs.

We welcome all dogs to our home that are good around small dogs. While we generally have one guest at a time, a second dog from the same household will be considered, too. Our home has Green Lake right at the doorstep, and we love our regular walks, rain or shine! We also enjoy visiting other parks, including dog parks, beaches, and national forest terrain. Variety is the spice of life!

For more detailed info about my services and qualifications, as well as my personal background, I invite you to visit my website:

I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Petra

Petra has been an essential part of my 5 month-old puppy Freddy's life! My husband and I both work, but we have always wanted a dog. Petra has been indispensible in helping us realize our dream and helping us be responsible dog owners. She has been doing daily drop-by visits with Freddy our mini dachshund for the last month for potty breaks. Not only has she helped us with potty training but she has already started training Freddy in basic obedience training, like sit, stay, and fetch. Petra's training experience is definitely an asset that puts her ahead of the pack! I look forward to the daily updates and videos she sends us via text message, so I still feel connected to Freddy's antics and cute moments throughout the day. Freddy spent a weekend with Petra while we were traveling, and she took him on walks at the park and on the beach. She has an easy-going personailty that Freddy responds to, she has flexible hours, she is dependable and responsible. I trust her with our home and dog. Petra has become a member of our little family and I know that Freddy adores her!

Having just moved to Seattle we suddenly found ourselves in need of a new overnight pet sitter. On very short notice, Petra responded to our request and did not disappoint. We are typically very anxious and protective about our animals (two Rhodesian Ridgebacks and two cats) but Petra very quickly alleviated those worries. She was very kind, calm, professional, and truly familiar with animal behavior. Her communication style was so comforting and often included pictures! We definitely will be using her services again and we highly recommend her!

We can't thank Petra enough!

We always hate leaving our dog, Honey, as we know all pet parents do. Honey is especially tricky because she's pretty fearful of many things, including new people. We knew right off the bat that Petra would be an excellent fit for Honey, and indeed we came home to the happiest pup! Petra stayed at our home for a week with Honey, and she took excellent care of her and our home. We feel so lucky to have met Petra and look forward to using her services many times in the future. Thank you!

We came home to a happy cat!

Petra recently watched our cat, Henry, while we were away for about two weeks over the holidays. She came to our home once per day to feed him, clean his litter box, and give him some playtime and cuddles. She also kept our Christmas tree alive! It was obvious when we returned that Henry had been well-cared for. He wasn't angry with us for being gone, and was perfectly content and happy. His litter and food area were clean, as was the rest of the house. Petra updated us with text messages while we were away and coordinated the details of the key return that had slipped my mind before I left. Thanks so much Petra for your excellent care! We will be in contact again!!
