Socializing Animals and Kids - It's a Wonderful Thing!

Friday, January 24, 2014

A pet care business is the most amazing business to have when you've got kids. My five year old can tell you if a dog is a Grey Hound or Basset Hound.  My nine year old comes along on dog walks, and can identify an approaching dog's demeanor; whether it's friendly or fear aggressive. It's awesome, and I smile a lot when I think how we've been able to share the wonderful world of animals with our kids.

Our house is fun, crazy and loving.....and I give most of the credit to the animals. Our house is the perfect house for socializing dogs. We have chickens, cats, dogs, and a gecko. I should put a sign on our door that reads Animal House-minus the frat boys. (hehehe…well, until my boys get older.)  It’s been a gradual accomplishment that has taken patience and love. 


Life with Animals and Kids!

Some of the basic services we provide are dog walking, cat sitting, and improving the relationship between animals and their humans, through guidance and support. When our own babes were born, we reached a whole new level of appreciation for what we were doing, and how it has affected our lives.

Fast forward ten years later, and we have dogs, cats, chickens, a gecko, a mouse, and two lively and wonderful boys. Gosh, I’ll say it again, we need a sign on our front door that reads “Animal House.” Our house is crazy, loud, and fun! It’s a bit messy, because kids and animals are always running amok, and tracking stuff in and out of the house. I generally buy second hand, so it already has a that "well-loved" feel. I know that the dog is considered to be man's best friend, but I would say my Dyson comes in as a close second.  READ MORE
