Patricia Brooksbank (Nico & Tessa)

Courtney “cut her teeth” on my 2 Maremma Sheepdogs, Nico & Tessa, helping me in 2013 when I was disabled with a broken foot. At the time, Courtney was a high school student needing volunteer hours. She fell in love with them, and the feeling was (and still is) mutual! She was (even then) mature beyond her years and obviously had a special rapport with animals. She began working at their daycare, and eventually began her own dog sitting/walking service. My dogs, especially Nico, can be quite challenging – Courtney has proved herself eminently capable of handling them. Courtney is my preferred dog-sitter when I travel – although she books up fast, so I have to plan far in advance now 😉
