I have 10 years experience working with dogs including running my own dog rescue – Dizzi Dawgs Paws’abilities – for a few years. I have experience that includes training litters of puppies, training dogs from shelters or the street, administering medications and helping with behavior assessments. Dizzi has several year experience working with + training bully breeds. When I began I had a Siberian Husky of my own named Akoya. After returning from a mini-vacation, picking Akoya up from a kennel and having to take her to the emergency vet in the middle of that night (she would have died had I not gotten out of bed to check on her), I made the decision to never put my dogs in a kennel again…from that I began my own pet sitting business on top of the dog rescue.
Akoya has since passed away but a couple years prior to that I adopted Izzee from the Forsyth County Animal Shelter. Izzee is my trusted sidekick, adventure bud and therapy dog. Since moving back to the Winston-Salem area after a 3 year hiatus, Izzee and I decided to rebuild our pet sitting clientele. Izzee goes with me to most gigs, unless it is better for the client’s pets that she stay home. Izzee understands when that has to happen.
I also have experience with cats, lizards, fish, horses and birds.
Izzee and I look forward to meeting you and your furry, feathered, and/or scaly family.
