Professional Pet Sitting and Dog Walking
That's me with my dog, Sweet Pea.  She gets VERY excited when I come back home!
Hi!  It's nice to meet you.  My name is Alexis Corey, and  I live in the West Van Nuys area and service the surrounding areas.  I am the proud parent of 1 incredibly sweet dog and 2 feisty and independent cats. 

In my early 20's I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician.  Eventually, I attended the University of Southern California and graduated with honors with a double major in Psychology and Sociology.  After graduating, I spent a decade of my life working in Social Work; and specifically the final 5 of those years in Foster Care.  While I enjoyed working with children, the emotional toll eventually prompted me to re-evaluate my career choices.  Having found peace and solace throughout my lifetime with animals, I searched for and was able to find an incredible no-kill cat sanctuary (Heaven On Earth Society For Animals @ www.heavenlypets.org) to volunteer my time with, and eventually became one of the providers of medication support to many of their resident cats several nights per week.  In late 2012/2013, I was able to remain at home and spend what turned out to be the final year of the life of my best friend and four legged companion, Charlie.  The chance to be able to be with my furry child during his last year on this earth made me realize that I was happiest caring for him and my other pets.  I had already pet sat for friends and neighbors on numerous occasions for well over 10 years, and had successfully provided care for numerous special needs cats at the sanctuary. All of those times I found rewarding, and was happy to spend time with pets who needed love, care, and  nurturing.  With that in mind, I began to do some research and soon decided to build a full-time business in the San Fernando Valley area.

Many people have a love of animals though, so you might be wondering why I am any different, or why I might be the best choice for YOUR pets, right?  Well, as I mentioned earlier, I used to be an Emergency Medical Technician, and am also trained in Pet CPR & First Aid.  This means that if there are any medical issues (or heaven forbid), an accident of any sort while I am caring for your pets, they are in good hands. Additionally, many of the pets that I've owned in my life are or have been "special needs" pets.  This means that I am very confident with medicating both cats and dogs, I work well under pressure, and I am very familiar with administering IV (subcutaneous) fluids, as well as insulin shots (and understand how important it is to stay on a strict schedule).  

Lastly, because I myself am security conscious and understand that it is unnerving to have a virtual stranger in your home for the first time,  I am fully insured, bonded, & background verified (this means that I have a clean criminal history, and no substance abuse issues).  Ultimately, what I would like to convey is that aside from my love of animals, I decided to start this business because when I wanted to go away on vacation, there was no one that I felt safe enough to leave my pets with given their extensive medical needs and difficult food regimens.  I felt that I could provide this service safely, effectively, and at a reasonable cost to other pet parents who found themselves in similar situations.  Please call me, let me come and meet with you and your pet(s), and I am certain that you will feel comfortable enough to go on vacation, on your business trip, or for a long days work with peace of mind. I am an honest, trustworthy and reliable person who absolutely loves what I do! Your pet(s) will be in loving, caring hands while you are away (and so will your home).
