In 2002, our family partnered with the late Italian geneticist Dr. Maria Andreoli to responsibly introduce the almost-extinct Bergamasco Sheepdog into the United States. This wonderful honor led me on a journey that would change the path of my life forever, ultimately allowing me the opportunity to breathe life into Stella & Floyds. I wanted to change the way dogs were cared for in the absence of their family. My primary goal is to keep our beloved pets out of cold kennels and crates and for the last 11 years I have achieved that goal. I can honestly say that I have the best job in the world.
I have always been both an animal and people lover, and I thrive off making connections with both you and your furry babies. My little Chihuahua, Lila, is the love of my life and I can't imagine my life without her. Spending time surrounded by dogs is a wonderful blessing. I look forward to caring for your little one!
My desire to surround my life with dogs started at a young age when our two dogs had puppies. My mom would wake up to find me sleeping in the puppies’ whelping box, lining myself with as many puppies as I could. As I grew older I began looking after the dogs that boarded with us, along with walking some of my mom's client dogs as well. I have always had a bond with dogs and they seem to gravitate towards me like I am a part of their family.
I have been working with Stella and Floyds Pet Care for about 2 years. I have grown up around animals and taking care of a variety of creatures from reptiles to fur babies. This give me a variety of knowledge of animal needs, and behavior that provides your pets with the care and attention that they need.
Since I was little, I have grown up with many different kinds of pets, and have had a passion to work with animals my whole life. I have been a dog walker and pet sitter for a few years, and have 2 amazing dogs of my own. Forming bonds with the animals I work with is a blessing and it’s what makes my job so rewarding every day. I am excited to meet you and your pets!
I love animals so much that I rescued a dog that I named Major Tom. He has been a wonderful buddy for me, and I enjoy taking care of him. I wanted to find a job that I can be with dogs, help with their care and spend quality time with people's pets.
