Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

My business includes all things dog – training, cage-free boarding, daycare and walking. I also do in-home pet sitting for all other types of pets. My newest offering is classes in first aid and emergency care for pets. The promotional code “STYLE” will give interested readers a $10 discount on their registration. I think my business and I found each other. When the company I was with for 20 years closed, I knew I wanted to do something I was passionate about, but wasn’t sure what that was. I began volunteering at the SPCA and quickly became addicted to learning everything I could about dog training and behavior. Before I knew it, I was on the path to my new career!

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

Raising an amazing daughter, Alexandra, who just started graduate studies at San Francisco State University. I’m also very proud of my business. It has been so rewarding to watch both of my creations grow and evolve.

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

Taking walks on nearby trails, or to the dog park of course!

What’s your favorite childhood memory?

The day my dad brought me my first kitten, Fuzzy. Dad was not a fan of felines, so it was a big surprise!

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

Waggin’ Tails Doggie Day Care.

And finally, customer service is…?

Absolutely everything! Working with pets and their owners is a privilege, and I think it’s so important to really listen to what each family wants. Whether it’s pet care or dog training, each family is unique in what’s important to them and I like to tailor my services to fit those needs and goals.
