Is Pet Care an Essential Service?
I'm asking our community to support us in a new way today. We are all overwhelmed by the COVID19 Pandemic. Can you see our services as an essential support for our Paw Parents/Medical Professionals and Workers? These Paw Parents need us more than ever!
We are called upon to gear up in protective gear, to do our part to safely walk, feed and snuggle the Fur family as an Essential Service Provider during this 'shelter in place order'. We all want to help those on the front lines during this COVID19 Pandemic.
Pawtails is responding daily to the calls for help to care for their Fur Kids! Our hearts go out to our MD's, and Nurses in a big way.
NOTE: We practice Physical Distancing, Protective Hygiene Protocols and wear protective gear. We touch no surface without a thorough wipe down before and after touching of anything such as door knobs, counters, leashes, harnesses or food bowls to help minimize bringing the virus into the home.
Doing our part so they can do theirs.
If you would like to help us continue to be of service you can donate to our business today at the gofundme page, https://www.gofundme.com/f/pet-care-essential-services…. Your one time donation or weekly donation will help us keep the lights on, buy the fuel and supplies to get where we are needed without interruption during this COVID19 pandemic.
Please know we appreciate your generous gifts today. Thank you in advance for helping us for the love of the Paw Parents and the Paws.

Bringing home a new pet can be a tad overwhelming with all the paperwork they come home with. Many new Pet Parents set it aside as they frantically chase the new family member to retrieve their shoes, or protect an electric cord, clear the coffee table of keep sake items (not chew toys) or pull the Cat off the new drapes. It's all so new many don't stop to think that a bowl of grapes grabbed by that new counter surfer can kill him!
This week I was invited to participate with my community partner, Toyota of San Diego on their community service campaign to help educate new Pet Parents and Pet Owners about Dangerous Foods for Pets. Keep the picture handy and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number: (888) 426-4435 just in case the need arises.

We start the morning ready care for your Cats and Dogs with a skip in our step! As the sun rises we are enroute to feed, walk and love your furbabies.
This morning all the Cats were ready for some tlc and a game of pounce, we let the games begin with a fresh bowl of food and water, a clean litter box and then we settle in for 'fodder time fun & lovin' '. Your savvy, stealthy hunters are eager to play pounce and chase the toy feathers and plushy cat nip toys in between the purrs, belly rubs and chatter of love calls. The Dogs want to get outside and scout for new markings and leave their own calling cards,lol. It's a furfest for all of us.
Morning, Mid-day, Suppertime and Sleep Overs we greet each of them at the door ready to brighten there lives while you're away.

Your felines and pups and are all happy to see us come walking through the door this morning. Taking their special greeting as the welcomed hello they so eagerly share is like Christmas all over again.
We cater to their special diets (some raw food eaters) and medication requirements while chatting, tossing toys and preparing to engage them with all the tlc they want. The Cats really set the pace while the Pups are eager for the fun games of toss or tug of war, walks and belly rubs. We love them like our own and can't wait to tell you about the funny things they are doing.

Tis the season... We are dashing through the snow on a one Horse open sleigh...San Diego style. Yes, we are dashing around but in the car. We spend hours in the car on holidays to be with the pawz and clawz. The new gifts left from Santa have been an added level of entertainment for us all. So far the squeaker Duck and the squiggly fur string have been the favorites.
I must mention a word of caution about holiday decorations and confections left out and low. Never leave chocolate Santa's or fudge unattended.
May your holiday be merry and bright. We are having a great time snuggling, fetching, and celebrating the presents of paw time, simply priceless. We love #staycations #dogsittingsandiego #catsittingsandiego #petsittingsandiego #weloveyourpets
What is the best part of the weekend for us? It's Saturday with your pets!
Anytime we can spend the day with your furbabies is special. This Columbus Day weekend we get time by the pool with Wally, kennel time wirh Khloe, Buddy and LuLu, yard time with senior Chloe and,lots of laptime with the Cats. Being in tune to their needs with this beautiful weather is an added bonus. Most of our Cats this weekend will jump at the laptime with only a few hanging back with catitude.
Petsitting, Dogwalking and Catsitting with a focus on tlc, fun and fetch tailored to the comfort and temperment of each one makes the day fly by.
As a Professional Dog Walker I run into all sorts of situations that require a quick response and a cool head about you.
This morning was just such an occasion. I had a coyote tracking us. Knowing the SMART technique I gathered the pups next to me and took a stand, big and bold. This incident is a common one here in San Diego. Too many times pups are snatched from the end of a leash because people are not paying attention to their surroundings.
Here are some simple adjustments you can make to keep you and your pets safe:
Together we can be SMART about Coyote Hazing and spare the heartache of loosing another Fur Family member.
If you have any questions or would like a one on session practicing coyote hazing give me a call, I'm happy to meet with you to help you build your confidence. You can reach me at 858-603-9925
