Advice on how to Adopt a New Pet

25


25 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I am offering a 30-60 minute conversation in which I will find out about your lifestyle and advise you where to look and what to do to identify your new furry family member. We can talk via Skype, messenger, phone, or email.

Do you want a couch potato to watch tv with you? An athletic buddy to go for a jog? A super-smart competitor for flyball or freestyle? Do you have children, elderly family members, or other pets to consider? Do you travel or work long hours?

I can also answer your concerns about adopting a shelter or rescue pet over buying a puppy or kitten and explain the advantages.

What preparations do you need to make before bringing your new furbaby home? What are the first steps to take upon their arrival? What should you feed your new kitty or dog?

I want to set you up for a happy and successful adoption!

Training & Qualifications


I have about 10 years experience volunteering in animal welfare as an adoption counselor for no-kill shelters and rescues and 16 years experience as a pet owner. I have adopted and raised a puppy, adopted an adolescent untrained dog, and adopted a senior untrained dog. I have also adopted adult and senior cats. I believe in and follow Positive Reinforcement training as taught be Karen Pryor, Ian Dunbar and others.

Availability & Preferences


weekends & evenings or any time asynchronously through email

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Reviews of Medley


Rachel received Hour of Space Planning & Interior Design from Medley
Oct 29, 2016
Medley was great to work with! She responded promptly, was very friendly, and came up with great suggestions for my space. She clearly has a great eye... for design and was able to suggest how I could incorporate the current furniture in my room into a new layout. Would definitely recommend working with her!show more
