What is your favorite trick/training tool you taught your cat or dog?

Not my dog or cat, one of my favorite tricks or commands is my client Finley.  The parents named the command Bravo.  Bravo is his laydown command.

My first pet was a rabbit, named Charlie.  He was an Easter gift when I was 3 years old.

What pets do you have in your home currently?

I have a turtle, named Squirt, he is a Red Ear Slider with a red dot that looks like blush.  Squirt is 15 years old.  He is half aquatic and half land.  I drag my finger around the glass tank and Squirt loves trying to eat me through the glass.  Luigi is a 13-year-old Terrier Mix that likes to howl and be for treats every 10 minutes.  Memphis is a 4-year-old American Pit Bull that is sassy and loves to chase the laser pointer, will bark at you til you get out the laser pointer.  Then there is Spiraro the 2-year-old Bearded Dragon.  When I let him out of his aquarium runs across the floor and looks like a dinosaur.  

What is one thing no one might know about you?

I sang in the chorus in high school and his karaoke song is Moonlight by Arianna Grande.

Me, my mom, stepdad, and younger sister.

What’s your favorite thing about working for Platinum Paws Pet Services?

Honestly, I think my favorite part is just getting to meet and experience what it’s like being with all different kinds of animals. All different dog breeds, I think it’s really cool, seeing how they react to things.  I enjoyed forming connections with all the animals in my care, because I know people say animals don’t know what the heck you’re talking about.  I think they do.  I love talking to them.
