CHRISTY PAULSON - Owner

 

My name is Christy Paulson and I own Pawtastic! Pet Care LLC. Pets are my passion and I have over 25 years of pet care experience.  I obtained my bachelor's degree in business from the University of St. Thomas in 2000.  During both high school and college I worked at a veterinary hospital and eventually became the office manager. After I graduated college I became a hospital director with Banfield Pet Hospitals (the vet offices located inside of PetSmart stores). I got my first experience with pet sitting while working in the veterinary field. I loved pet sitting for veterinary clients who had pets with special medical needs and needed help when traveling.   I left veterinary medicine after having my first child and was a stay at home mom for several years. I began professionally pet sitting when both of my children entered school full time. I have lived in Rogers for 20 years now. Currently, I live with my husband, two teenage sons, two Hungarian Vizslas, & one spoiled cat who is the queen of the house!  I love spending time with my dogs & we have enjoyed therapy dog work, rally, conformation, agility, & lure coursing together.

 

I love working with new puppies as it's very rewarding to help owners with socialization and training.  I have trained many, many puppies over the years!  I also have a lot of experience with senior pets, pets with special needs, and administering all types of medications.  I am trained in Pet First Aid & CPR. I feel very blessed to have a job that I absolutely love and to be able to provide peace of mind for pet owners when they are away. Reliable, consistent, safe, and loving care is always my top priority!

IN THE COMMUNITY

 

Our community is important to us!  We love volunteering our time whenever we can to help educate and strengthen the human-pet bond.   We have enjoyed doing therapy dog work, educating children about dog safety and bite prevention, bell ringing during the holidays for the Salvation Army, helping local animal rescues, talking with local Girl Scouts about business ownership, and many other fun local events.
