I am also available for extended visits or overnight stays.

Care for small animals, including reptiles, at owner’s instructions.

I have experience handling and caring for both land and aquatic turtles, newts, frogs, and iguanas. Will work with non-venomous, non-aggressive snakes.

Will not handle arachnids including spiders, tarantulas and scorpions.


I have 27 years experience working and handling dogs.

Care for dogs includes feeding, watering and play time. There is an additional fee for walking during visits unless the visit is a minimum of 1 hour however no additional fee during overnight stays.

I am available for extended visits and overnight stays.

I ask that you please contact me well in advance to arrange a meet & greet and to ensure I have availability for overnight stays.

For dog walking I ask that the collar and leash be either a harness or another form of non-aggressive restraint. I will not work with chokers, pronged collars, or other collars that can potentially harm the dogs. I do “loose leash” leading and am willing to work with the dog to help develop these skills.

I also have experience handling a range of other farm animals and care is dependent on what the owner wishes.

Note: I do not handle unmanageable horses or racehorses due to liability reasons.
