Hayley has worked with Santa Monica Paws since 2019 and has over 300 hours experience in training. She is primarily a positive reward based trainer, and adores working with puppies.

She finishes every session on a positive note to keep training fun and exciting.  

As well as working with puppies, Hayley has successfully applied the positive reward based training methods and scientific training methods.   She supports older dogs and their owners by managing difficult behaviours such as leash aggression & lead pulling.  She has also trained older dogs to have better impulse control by teaching them how to maintain positions in the home such as ‘go to bed/crate’ ‘off couch’.

Pet Sitter, Daycare Professional

Nothing makes my heart happier than spending time with dogs.  I have loved all the dogs I've cared for and they always leave a special place within my heart.  One of the joys of pet sitting has been creating close bonds with your pets.  My main goal is to help satisfy their needs, making sure they are relaxed and as happy as possible when they are with me,  I will send you video and photo updates while I'm caring for your pet to help keep your mind at ease that your pet is alive and well.  

We do fun activities like going for walks in different neighborhoods, we go to recreation parks, occasionally to dog parks (specific customer's only), and I give lots and lots of cuddle time and play time for them.  Some pups prefer a game of fetch, while others like to play chase and/or tug games, and for most puppies,  I will play hide and seek games with food treats and puzzle toys.  

Overall, I'm 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 my furniture or bed, and they will have my full attention!  They are safe in my home. 

 

*Contact Santa Monica Paws if you are in need of Pet Sitting Services from me.  I'm also willing to go to your home to pet sit your pets when needed.
