many of his procedures in my training. He is the ultimate pack
leader and my hero.

worked at many different animal shelters.

I love, love, LOVE my job! Daycare is especially
important for puppies and even those that aren't young anymore. My
pack and I teach socialization skills, on and off leash skills,
obedience, rules, boundaries, limitations and even tricks. I truly
believe that a pack of well-behaved dogs can teach much faster than
I can. My pack and I are a great team. I provide a much more
intimate experience by boarding dogs in my home. It is more of an
interactive and comfortable atmosphere. I do not use crates unless
I do not believe that dogs are set in their ways but
I have met quite a few humans that are. Even an old dog can learn
new tricks but if the human isn't willing to change then it's just a
waste of time to change the dog.

My dog training program teaches dogs to behave well
around both people and other animals. The goal is to make them great
dogs to be with. Some of this training may deal with behavioral
problems like excessive barking, chewing, or housebreaking.
My dog classes also focuses on making dogs obedient
to their owners through the use of commands like sit, stay, lie
down, etc. I use a lot of Cesar Millan's training methods.
Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure or
day trips with the family, I will give you and your pet a secure,
caring and stress free alternative to boarding.
The next time you can’t get home for lunch or dinner
to let your dog out, you need to leave town for work or vacation, or
if an ailment or injury limits your ability and you need someone you
can trust to care for your pets and home, call the Dog Angel!

We are so thankful for the training and dog
walking you have provided our Lincoln. Having you walk him
midday made us feel at ease and we knew he was in good hands!
(Loved and appreciated the pictures!) We are also VERY
appreciative of your boarding services and have enjoyed a few
nights away, again, knowing he was well taken care of.
Playing with the other dogs was a bonus and he is
such a pack animal. Every time we pass your house, he wants to

My experience with the Dog Angel has been phenomenal. My 3
year old boxer was just over 1 when we met and was fairly good @ listening.
My husband and I often watched Cesar Millan on TV so when we met the Dog
Angel we saw 1st hand that she had really studied his behavioral practices.
She has worked wonders with Milo and so many other dogs since we met.
It's true that it's usually the owners that have to be
trained; not the dog. She showed us how to be the pack leader and not give
in to his every whim. I would recommend the Dog Angel for any sitting,
training or exercising of your furry friends.
Your biggest fan Dog Angel, Shari Mann.
Jeri was beyond amazing with our 7 year old Pit Rocky. He has
always had a fear of the pool/water and she was able to get him swimming in
no time. She was so great with him and was great at explaining how she was
able to make it happen. She was accommodating with our schedules and
listened to our concerns. Overall we couldn’t be happier with her and will
absolutely be using her in the future. I would definitely recommend her to
anyone that wants to see results with their dogs.
Jeri is so good with our Lily, a maltipoo. Lily feels right
at home there. She treats Lily as if she is one of her own. Lily even gets
to sleep on their bed, like she does at home. She gets 2 nice walks a day,
and play time in their pool and more. She gets rest when needed. Each time
I've picked Lily up from her stay, she's been bathed and smells fresh and
clean. I highly recommend Jeri (Dog Angel) for anyone needing someone to not
only care for, but Jeri will love your dog while you are on vacation. I have
complete confidence in Lily's care and guidance with Jeri.
Being new to the area we were looking for cage free boarding
/ daycare. Sandy is a very high energy pointer retriever, a Vizsla. Chose to
do boarding for our upcoming trip with Dog Angle, Jeri. To make sure
everything was going to be ok for a week of boarding Sandy did an initial
day of Daycare. All went well a very tiered dog was returned to us. Sandy
must of loved all the activists of the day, Walks, Rides, and playing with
others. The week of boarding was a repeat of activities and we returned to a
tired but happy dog. During the course of our vacation with Jeri caring for
sandy, many pictures were sent to us with caption updates. This made the
experience even more enjoyable by lowering anxiety. It was like checking in
without actually checking in. We already booked Dog Angel, Jeri for our next
trip knowing that Sandy will be well taken care of and possibly having a
better time then us.

While we were gone for several week, she took care of our
nearly 17 year old dog, Woodiem. She did a spectacular, loving job
Including watering plants, getting mail in, watching the pool
etc. Could not have asked for more! Will definitely hire the Dog Angel again
and give great references!

After the loss of our beloved lab, we decided to add a new furry family
member. Shortly after getting our Springer Spaniel puppy, we moved to Port
Richey. Our very hectic schedule consisted of unpacking, taking care of the
needs of a puppy who was not yet housebroken or crate trained and
acquainting ourselves with a new area was a bit overwhelming. We needed a
sitter for our puppy so we could familiarize ourselves with the area and get
our shopping done.
Many calls were made to pet sitters and doggie day care centers. I was
appalled at how some of the businesses were run! Example: we let the dogs
run wild or we charge you $16.00 for a bath because we let them dig holes
and they have fun. REALLY, you can’t be serious?
Very dishearten we decided to make one last call. This call was to DOG ANGEL
During our conversation with Jeri you could feel the compassion in her
voice. Shortly thereafter we met with her. She is an amazing woman! Her
love, patience and compassion for God’s furry babies is so very genuine.
Our puppies first day with her was very educational for us. We got out of
our vehicle, and there he was in the yard with other dogs and he had no
leash! In her calm manner she informed us she was the Omega and pack leader.
He followed her without a leash, never leaving her side. I COULD NOT BELIEVE
MY EYES! Jeri doesn’t just sit and watch the dogs or let them run wild, she
engages them in many activities. She has helped our boy excel in everything!
She has taught us so much. You will NEVER find a better trainer or sitter!!
WHAT IS THE DESCRIPTION OF DOG ANGEL??
A woman who takes your baby under her wing. She protects and teaches. She
emanates a glowing spirit of love, sympathy, strength, knowledge and
compassion. She lives for the happiness of furry babies and their well
being! She is truly an angel!!
Thank you Jeri,
Jeri is amazing! Our two Springer Spaniels, Daren and Lily
stayed at her home for 8 nights while we were away on vacation. Daren and
Lily were on their own vacation too. They had daily walks/hikes, rides,
swimming, beach and training time. I was really afraid they would not want
to come home.
Lily who is a rescue dog and 2 years old can be a little
difficult. I felt bad Lily was pushing Jeri’s boundaries and she told me not
to worry, this is her job and they would get through it and they did.
Jeri sent me photos of our dogs several times a day and all
the photos had all the dogs sitting quietly and posing for the camera. My
husband said “how does she do that?”. We looked forward to our daily photos
and updates of our babies.
When we got home with Daren and Lily I noticed they were
bathed, smelling wonderful and their ears were cleaned. Anyone who has a
Springer Spaniel knows how dirty their ears can get and they were spotless.
We are so excited we have someone that loves our babies as
much as we do and we would recommend her to everyone.
Jeri truly is a Dog Angel!

I recently hurt my back and could not take care of my sweet
Baby. Jeri lives in my neighborhood which is truly a blessing from the Lord.
She has been taking care of Baby for the last seven days.
She sent me pictures continuously keeping me informed of
their activities. In the seven days that she had her, she was also training
her, which is awesome. I finally felt well enough so Baby could come home,
and when Jeri dropped her off Baby cried for her for a good while. She also
dropped her off smelling very sweet from a nice bath. And she was also very
tired which is very nice in the evening. I have to say Jeri is an excellent
"dog angel" not to mention "people angel" she went above and beyond, she
saved the day for me. I will continue to bring my Baby over there for
