Hello animal lovers, my name is Vicki. Thanks for stopping by to see what Animals Reign, llc, is all about.
As you can see from my photo, animals do reign in my life. Not only do animals surround me at home, but they have taken hold of almost every part of my life — volunteering, business, continuing education,
and mentoring others. I left a 25 year career in environmental management to follow my heart into animal care.
Vacation pet sits
Dog Walking and midday potty breaks
We have been in business since 2001. We are a full service program, and services are customized to your specific pet’s needs. We have recruited a few top-of-the-line pet sitters to help so that we can serve a broader geographical area and care for all kinds and all ages of animals. We take care of the following animals. If you have a species not listed here, please ask. We’re likely to be able to help you.
- Special needs animals [sub-q fluids, medications, wound management, mobility assistance.]
- Hospice dogs
I’ve offered this service since 2004 and have talked with animals all over the United States and in several other countries. I trained with an internationally known animal communicator from Assissi International Institute.
Pet First Aid & CPR
As any pet owner or pet care professional knows, sudden, unexpected incidents happen with pets. You can be prepared in an emergency to take valuable first steps to help your pet survive a potentially life-threatening situation. Trained by Pet Tech, Inc., we emphasize individual attention and hands-on practice.
Many years developing expertise in animal care led to consulting services for other pet sitters and people interested in starting a pet care business. We offer a comprehensive, step-by-step course for starting a pet care business, taught at local community colleges and private venues. The course will soon be available as an e-book so that we can offer it to people outside the Seattle area.
We also offer private consulting for both local and distant clients already in business but who need extra help with some aspect of it. We are experienced in all areas of small business development and operation, so we can help you with understanding issues such as the pros and cons of hiring employees versus independent contractors, the appropriate business structure for you, putting together an effective, low-cost marketing plan, etc.
Writing a blog for pet owners and pet care providers is the icing on the cake for one whose long-time avocation has been free lance writing. I have published articles in print, but the internet offers a greater reach for sharing information. The blog is titled Pet News You Can Use, and I publish about one article a month. The goal is to inform pet owners on topics that might interest them, or bring attention to new products, or to announce yet another pet food recall. Have a look and see if there is something you might enjoy.
I hope through one or more of these services I can be of help to you.
