Vida has been participating in our Mentor Dog Training Program for 2 years. She has always been fearful of dogs since she was a child. However, since working with our Professional Training Team, her fearfulness of dogs has diminished, and she attributes her positive life changing experience to all the training she's received from Santa Monica Paws. Nothing makes Vida's heart happier than spending time with pets. Whether it be cats, dogs, birds, or rabbits, she loves all the animals she cares for and they always leave a special place within her heart.
One of Vida's joys of pet sitting and handling different pets has been creating close bonds with your pets. Her main goal is to help satisfy their needs, making sure they are relaxed and as happy as possible when they are with her. She sends you daily video and photo updates while caring for your pets to help keep your mind at ease, knowing that your pet is alive and well.
Vida will do fun activities like going for walks in different neighborhoods, go to recreation parks, or occasionally to dog parks (specific customer's only). Additionally, Vida will give lots and lots of cuddle time and playtime for cats, birds, rabbits, and dogs. Some pups and cats prefer a game of fetch, while others like to play chase and/or tug games. For most puppies and cats, she will play hide and seek games with food treats and/or leave out interactive puzzle toys during feeding times.
Overall, Vida is a very easy going, compassionate, attentive care giver with so much empathy for humans and their fur babies. Your pups are more than welcome to be on her furniture or bed, and they will have her full attention! They are safe in her home on the West Side.
