Animal Handling in San Jose, CA


20 per visit - - Posted Feb 23, 2017

I love animals and I am not afraid of them. If you want an animal removed from your property, under humane conditions, give me a call. I can deal with Snakes, Skunks, Raccoons, Mountain Lions, Bears and other wild beasts. If you have an aggressive animal, I can 'soften' it.

I am not afraid of being bit and have been bit and lunged at by bigger animals than can be found in your house. I can turn that Pit Bull that was horribly treated as a Fighting Dog into a Puppy again. (If there is an obvious risk of personal injury, I may require more for it. For the extra clothing to protect my body from bites or claws.)

I am better with Animals than humans. I may not be an expert on teaching your dog to roll over or beg but I can deal with a wild animal, no matter it's past or psychology, I can cool it off. I assume nothing they do is their fault, it's all naturally learned behaviors. I have studied the way Animals interact and will assert dominance in the natural way, the way their pack would or their mother. I am martially trained in dealing with humans, but also with attack animals.

I am a fighter and have developed skills that allow me to deal with Animals with grappling and psychology. Holding them in the proper way or wrapping them in a towel or cloth or holding them down and showing them love. I can reverse any abuse and assert dominance in a humane manner without abuse. By using the same behaviors they use in nature with other animals.

I have a deep understanding of animal behavior from long term living in the wilderness. Anyone who sleeps in a bed with a beautiful Puma and protected by her, has to be PERFECT in behavior and training. I hunt by stalking, so I basically taught an orphaned Puma digging through the trash, Like a Mountain Lion should. Stalking is a lost art. I don't kill animals for sport, but for hunger as nature fully intended. I am not attacked by animals in the wilderness, because I am a wild animal.

I have friends with No Kill shelters and Wildlife management or I can escort the animal off your property.

Training & Qualifications

Good with Animals. I grew up on a farm. We had all kinds of Animals I love dogs, cats, horses, pigs, wild animals, feral animals. I am a pretty tough customer, I've even beaten a billy goat at head banging. I am good at Animal psychology and have survived a Mountain Lion Friend for years. She was orphaned in the woods where I lived in a tree as a tiny kitten. Her cries were heart breaking, so I let her have my leftovers, I even played with her as a kitten. She grew into a huge monster of a cat.

Even though she killed several people. Not that I was trying to make a mountain lion friend, I couldn't bring myself to kill her. Which is the other alternative. Maybe I just like to live dangerously, but I made a friend out of that cat. She laid down next to me, or near me all the time. She licked my hand and even decided to protect me from an Elk and a Crazy Guy with a gun. For two years, her company, though scary, she would sit closer and closer to me. I now am an advocate for Mountain Lions and will never kill one that doesn't lunge at me.

I've survived many Bear and other Wild Animal attacks without being hurt. Even regular hugs from a wild California Brown Bear, in the wild and taught it the Texas two step. Feeding them natural peppermints and tuna fish. Spear fishing and just giving them to the bears. Animals love me.

Honestly the one and only deal I've ever had a problem with. He wrote, what in my opinion is a very immature and one sided review on me. All the issue...s he mentioned we discussed and agreed was solvable. For those who have seen the review and my job posting, never once have I claimed to be a professional. I'm just a teenage girl who can do silly voices that I thought someone could use. Sadly here this was not the case. I tried, I did not avoid you I simply did not see the message. Perhaps if you had simply sent me another instead of assuming we could have worked it out, anyhow we didn't so I wish you luck in finding someone else to read your smut and hopefully you won't have issues with more

About Toby Nixon

I have a wide variety of Skills and Experiences. From the Spiritual and Parapsychological, Degrees in Science and Technology with an Award Scholarship from the National Science Foundation for excellen...ce in Science and Mathematics, Martial Arts, Hunting and Wilderness/Jungle Survival as well as writing. My father was an Army Special Forces Green Beret for 27 years of his military career. He also trained all Domestic Security over the fifth federal district of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. I Boxed and Wrestled in High School, fought bare fisted in Baton Rouge and have a Justified Homicide number that makes a serial killer's skin crawl. I am sort of an extremely high functioning Autistic, with brain damage before birth, damaging the soft tissue around my left and right temporal and parietal lobes on both sides due to lack of oxygen. I am extremely interested in Magick and Energy, Remote Viewing, Science and Forbidden Archeology. I write, science fiction and horror, but I am able to write things that will make you feel good. I am working on a story about a Child, that will be geared more toward a younger audience; kind of Alice in Wonderland. At nearly 40 and disabled but not totally helpless, I am at a loss for full time work. I have Disabling Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Sixteen pounds of metal reforming my Tibia and knee, rejoining my crucial tendons so I can walk. Astonishingly enough, I can walk without a visible limp. I am a well traveled person, I consider politeness and professionalism to be of the highest priories. I may not be the best dressed person, but I am certainly methodical. I am fairly charitable spending much of my time, pursuing activism, protection of privacy and advocacy of the Homeless. Which is truly a wide variety of skills. Please contact me for any consulting project that may seem in line with my more
