My name is Heather and I am the owner of It’s A Paws Life!
I believe in utilizing patience and understanding the behaviors of all animals.
I grew up with 6 Pitbulls and 2 Cats. I lived for every minute of it. It made me love animals so much, I always stopped my car to try and help dogs who looked lost wandering outside, find their way back home. In 2007, I helped my brother save a dog from being hung in my neighborhood. We were awarded by PETA.
Experience & Goals
From 2013-2015 I worked at a doggie daycare, where I worked my way up to a lead coordinator position. During busy times, I would care for up to 120 dogs at a time. I learned everything from basic training, to feeding strict diets, giving medications, to taking care of injured or sick pups, knowing what to do in an altercation, and of course understanding behavior.
In summer 2015 I worked for a dog walking company, where I learned the benefits of at home care. I learned that not every dog likes daycares. This is a great option for elderly pups and pups with lots of anxiety!
I am CPR & First Aid Certified, Licensed, Bonded, & Insured. I do not discriminate against any breed.
I love a challenge, give me a difficult dog, and I will do everything I can to show you they are not!
