Pet Sitter in Pahrump

For 30 years I have had my own kennel where I raise Golden Retrievers, have showed them, train them, groom them, rescue them, board them, and have titled with them. I am a specialist in Canine Care and have 3 Goldens who love everyone and would love some playmates. While your dog is with me, they are treated just like my own dogs, loved and cared for in my home. I have Certification training in pet first aid and CPR and have worked with many breeds. I believe in positive, force-free, and pain-free interaction with dogs. Your fur kids will have a safe, enriching environment to play and relax in while you are away. Here is an example of a Summer visit- A Day in the life of a Puppy in Puptopia Daycare (Summer Schedule) 2017 6-8am- Drop off, say bye to Mom and spend time exploring the yard with Nacina, but no other dogs. I can take all the time I want, to acclimate and relax until Im comfortable and feeling secure. I get rewarded for good behavior, and get support if Im scared or anxious. 8:15am- Supervised playtime in the yard with Marina. She is a sweet Golden who loves little dogs and puppies, and will lay down so she can instill confidence. If another puppy of appropriate age and size is available, they are added to the playgroup one at a time, in about 5 minute intervals. Nacina is there the whole time to make sure no one is bullied or plays too rough. 8:45am- Breaktime indoors for a nap, a snack, some cuddling, or alone time, as desired. I get to choose the activity and am not forced to do anything. Nacina is very good at helping pups have a great experience that is as stress free as possible. I get to bring my favorite blanket and toy, if I want to. 9:15am- Into the yard with Nacina for potty and sniffing, then 5 minutes of (all positive) training, then more supervised play. The training is so much fun because it is earning rewards for things like sitting, eye contact, and recall. Nacina will never raise her voice, jerk my neck, or treat me harshly. She really listens to pups and communicates clearly. 10:15am- Breaktime, separate activity as desired. I get to choose! Probably a nap, though, because all this is so exciting! 11:30am- Outside to potty and sniff, supervised. Back inside for a 5 minute (all positive) training session, then Siesta. Ive had so much fun already, I need to recharge. 1pm- outside to potty and sniff, supervised. Back inside for some play, socialization, snuggling. Playing indoors where it is cool is nice, there is lots to do here. The rest of the day is spent alternating indoor activities with outdoor breaks for potty and sniffing. All dogs are supervised at all times, unless supervision is not available (Nacina has to eat lunch,) at which time the pups are penned separately. If a crate is stressful for the pup, they can be penned in a larger area, or confined with a baby gate. The time spent confined is very minimal and used only to keep the pups safe when they cant be closely supervised. Nacina works very hard to provide a stress free experience for her furry guests and has spent a lifetime learning canine behavior, communication, and force-free handling, to facilitate this fun, safe, and happy environment. She has over 32 years experience providing the very best professional canine care, specializing in young puppy socialization and training. Please feel free to call or email for more info, to schedule a visit, or ask a question. I am here for you and your fur-kids. 415-699-...

Nacina Dawn is amazing. She has a natural ability to connect with dogs that is wonderful to see as is their reaction to her. My little rescue and I both fell in love with her. She spends so much time one on one enjoying each dog and learning about them and helping them be the best they can be. Lots of supervised play time and gentle loving care. We did doggy day care on a regular basis and boarding when needed. NEVER worried and always received photos and videos of BizzyB having the time of her life with all of her playmates and Nacina. Do not hesitate for an instant to avail yourself of her services. You and your pet (s) will be in for a treat.

Nacina is a very capable, responsible, caring petsitter with a lifetime of canine experience. Trust her to provide a safe, friendly, supervised home environment for your treasured companion. The two years I recently used her services, she was hands down the best pet sitter we've ever had, and I've had dogs for 30 years. She is outstanding!

We have two dogs one of which is a scared rescue. She was patient and very knowledable in how to approach him and integrate him in with her other dogs The other dog, a black lab, we took Freestyle Dog Dance classes with Nacina. We learned a lot and had a blast. The moves also come in handy for me as we are s therapy team and work with individuals with limited mobility.
