Exotic/Farm Pet Care and Training
I specialize in working with animals, in the care, exercise, nutrition and training to keep them happy, healthy and challenged. I do offer pet portraiture on the side, including stud and sales photos, which are offered in another deal.
Wolfdogs, reptiles, birds, and other exotics such as tigers, wombats, lemurs and zebras are all in my extensive repertoire of animals I am able to provide care to. I have experience in farm-sitting, equine handling and training, and dog training as well.
I can travel to your home to care for and walk your dog, cat, hamster, or other animals. For large animals, herds, and exotics, I am able to travel to their habitat/farm for daily care.
I report to you daily with photos, some video, and updates on how them are doing. You will not find such detailed care elsewhere!
Each visit includes feed, water, environment check to pick up any trash or dangerous material, playtime/handling/free time, and a text to you on the status of your animal(s) with a photo and/or video as you prefer. Visits average 30 minutes. If you seek training or handling beyond these basics, please feel free to message me, and we can work out a deal. The sky is the limit, but the health and happiness of your animal is of highest import to me, and I will not be able to accept caring for animals who are in unsafe situations or who are being improperly fed and cared for. (i.e.- feeding a cat a vegan diet will not be tolerated unless veterinarian recommendation dictates such, in which case a note from your vet and your vet's contact info will be required.) Each deal covers one visit.
Training & Qualifications
I grew up raising domesticated animals, livestock and poultry, and common exotic small pets. I began training dogs in 2008, working with large animals in 2012, and handling exotics of all sorts in 2006 via animal sanctuary and rehoming habitat. I am a part of several communities dealing directly with various species, so I am always learning and keeping current on their care, legalities, diets, and training. I have owned and trained many animals and species in my life, from early childhood. My specialty lies in wolfdogs, dogs, and equines, though I do have hands-on experience with most other species and breeds as well.
