Owner, Operator, Animal Lover
Welcome to Trails & Tails Pet Care! I've been in Professional Pet Care for over 10 years. Let me start off by introducing you to my pawtners and the real inspiration behind this operation. Sweetwater, Barley, Mason, Milk, Tully, Jules, Joplin, Sonny, Stash Gus Gus, and Billie Jean. Animals are my life and nothing makes me happier than spending time with them and making them happy.
I do everything (well almost) with my animals. My Australian Shepherd, Billie Jean, and Border Collie, Barley, are full of high energy and are in constant need of attention and adrenaline rushes. Luckily, we share the same energy and I knew that when I rescued these types of breeds.
Sometimes you just don't know what you are getting yourself into when you take on loving an animal.
Animals need a lot of attention, love, and time to get their energy out. Life and work can be very busy for many and you don't always have the time you want to give your active pet. So, that's what I'm here for. I'm here to get all that rambuncious energy out so they are cuddly for you when you get home. I truly believe a happy pet is a tired-spoiled-rotten-loved pet.
I am an experienced pet owner and sitter who serviced the Catonsville, Maryland area for 10 years. I recently relocated and am now living in Fort Myers, Florida!
I am also an experienced and avid hiker, backpacker, who has hiked many parks and trails all over. A few of the amazing places I've hiked are the Grand Canyon from Rim to Rim, Yosemite, Cinque de Terra, the Rogue River, Mt Rainer, The Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Joshua Tree and section hiking the Appalachian Trail, sections include the MD, PA, VA, WV portions of the trail. I've also spent countless hours running all over Patapsco State Park, Maryland state parks, and now I'm adding Florida parks to the list. Every year, my pawtners and I try to to go on a new and exciting hiking adventure. I enjoy taking my dogs off the beaten path to not only exercise them physically but also mentally. A change of scenery and exploring is great for them. It is important to give your animals that healthy balance of mental & physical exercise.
That's a little about me, let's talk about you! If you are looking for someone to care for your furry friends for whatever the reason, you have come to the right girl. I can't wait to meet you and your pets!
