Introduction

Hello! My name is Gyvel Young, owner/sitter of SecurePet, a professional pet sitting service for particular people.

I'd like to welcome you to my web site and let you know that if business or pleasure takes you out of town, I'm ready to take care of your pets with the same loving attention that you would provide. I will also help working professionals by providing their dogs with a mid-day potty break ... and a nice walk.

My love and passion for animals—wild and domestic—is my primary reason for starting my own pet sitting business. As a lifetime pet owner, I saw the need for a reliable and conscientious sitter in the Wimberley and Blanco, Texas area, one that would go the “extra” mile. After all, the Texas Hill Country covers a lot of territory!


E
xperience

With over thirty years of experience caring for my own animals and those of others, I can give you my personal assurance that I will make your pet my top priority. Service and attention to detail are my biggest assets. While you are away, the security of your pet and home are my number one concern.

I'm the founder of the Texas Animal Guardians, a non-profit animal welfare group that is dedicated to keeping pets out of shelters by providing help to owners experiencing life-changing transitions: loss of income, housing, illness, or injury—anything that prevents them from caring for their pets. Since the group's inception in 2009, we have placed numerous dogs and cats into permanent homes and provided food and medical serices to countless more.

Personally, I am the owner of five resue cats and three rescue dogs. Along with Moxie, Quigley, Sophie, Gracie, and Bartholemew, my heart is shared with my faithful canine companions Atticus, Kaya, and Shonee.

It's possible you may have seen one of my books out there, too: I'm also the author of the cat book, “Meows: I Want It and I Shall Have It!


Education


When it comes to taking care of people's pets, I believe that you can never be too prepared. For that reason, I hold a Pet CPR Certification.

I also hold the Humane Society University Pets for Life Certificate, a training course designed for animal welfare organizations who want to establish a behavior evaluation program, improve animal handling, reduce the level of stress for the animal, and make more informed decisions regarding adoption matches.

I have also completed the Pets for Life­Animal Behavior Helplines, an 8-week course (not part of the Pets for Life certificate program) designed to train individuals to operate a "helpline" at their organization.

Certificates of completion have been earned at Alfred State College for the following courses:

    • Veterinary Medical Terminology
    • Small Animal Anatomy and Physiology
    • The Mechanism of Disease in Companion Animals
    • Interpreting Animal Behavior for Safe Handling
    • Bite Prevention for Law Enforcement Officers
