You are not alone.

I can empathize with the joys, the frustrations, the rewards, and the challenges of sharing our lives with pets.


There’s no greater joy than having a loving pet companion by your side to make your cares melt away for a few moments.

 But sometimes you may feel frustrated, confused, or hopeless about your pet's behavior. Others might not understand. You can get professional, compassionate help.  I will be By Your Side, helping you and your pet as you learn together.

How can I help?

Cat Behavior

Get help with  uniquely feline behavior concerns including kitten socialization, conflicts between cats, introducing a new cat to your home, helping shy or fearful cats, litterbox issues, aggression, and more.  Whether you have one cat or eight, I can help.  


Dog Behavior

Sometimes it is challenging to understand why our dogs behave the way they do.   

I can help set you and your dog up for success in the future whether you are dealing with leash reactivity, jumping on people, resource guarding,  or other challenges. 

I specialize in working with shy, under-socialized, and fearful dogs.
