Hi! I'm Alicia

I've loved animals since I was a little girl (especially dogs and wolves!)

I was born in Springfield, MA and raised in Holyoke. I recently moved to Springfield and it has been quite interesting! I love sushi and anime and being a gamer girl. My first pet was a beagle named Snoopy who grew to be 40 pounds!

 

Background

I have been working with animals for more than 15 years, beginning with my first summer job at a kennel. I have experience caring for both dogs and cats.

I worked for 5 years at a local doggy daycare. While there, I worked closely with my supervisor, who was a graduate of Animal Behavior College (ABC). She trained me in dog behavior, canine body language, dog handling, behavioral cues, and more. I learned so much!

I have my own little fur baby named Phoebe, a 10 year-old Maltese/Papillon mix, who seems to think I cuddle her a bit too much, but she's so cute! I aim to help animals in any way I can and truly am at peace in their presence.

It’s so nice to receive pictures of my Boomer during his visit with Alicia. He loves his walks and Alicia’s company. My husband and I definitely feel at peace knowing Boomer is in good care!

Alicia handles our two German Shepherds with expertise and they love her. She has been helping care for them for quite some time now.

Thank you Alicia!

Besides the fact that my dog absolute LOVES her, she easily won over my geriatric cat who can be a bit shy and avoidant of new people. Aside from the wonderful care and love she gives them (1 dog, 3 cats), she pays great attention to the detailed instructions I leave her, AND EVEN WATERS THE PLANTS! 
Alicia is a fantastic animal caregiver, and I can’t emphasize enough how lovely she is!
