Our mission is to better the lives of pets and their people. Whether that’s by caring for your pet while you are away, or by providing you with helpful training tips from our certified animal trainer, we are here to provide you with the peace of mind that your loved ones are in the care of professionals. We are a group of professional animal caregivers and trainers whose experience is drawn from working with both domestic and exotic animals in the zoological field. All of us in the Zoo Crew have degrees in animal science from four year universities, ranging from animal behavior psychology to zoology. We strive to put our knowledge and experience to good use by caring for your pets while you are away, whether thats while you are at work, or across the world on vacation. Let us care for your pets and not only will you get to thoroughly enjoy your vacation (or work day), but your pet will also get to enjoy his or her stay-cation.
We also like to help people understand the importance of training. Training not only makes life with pets easier, it also increases the bond between owner and pet. We love to watch that bond grow as well as tackling tough training challenges. Kay Cochran is a Certified Training Partner from the world renowned Karen Pryor Academy. She also has a background in training wild animals in a zoo setting, from aardvarks to parrots. Kay’s techniques are not only positive, but fun for both owner and animal! And that’s right, Kay works with more than just the family dog, but the cat, horse, and pig too!
