RESOURCES

We believe in serving our communities through outstanding pet care – but, moreover, in being an active part of the communities we serve. We only hire locally-based staff, we shop locally for as many supplies as we can, and we utilize local vendors for other pet-related services. Everyone and every product we recommend is known to us personally. In addition, all of the people we recommend uphold the same philosophy Queenie’s holds: that positive-reinforcement is the only way to raise, train and treat our animals. All of the products we promote and/or sell make the lives of pets and their humans better!

ACCT (Animal Care & Control)
Queenie’s Pets is completely dedicated to force-free, fear-free, pain-free treatment and training of all animals in our care. All trainers listed below operate within these guiding principles, and provide Team Queenie’s with continuing education in animal behavior to keep us the most educated and professional team of caregivers you can hire for your pets’ care.
 
In some cases, we may require that you call in a trainer in order to begin or resume using our services if there is an existing behavioral concern, previous showing of aggression to animal or human, a high level of reactivity to outside stressors, or a medical change that has created a behavioral change. For existing clients, if there has been a behavioral change in your pets that causes risk to our caregivers or your pet’s health and happiness, we may also require or request that you engage with one of these trainers. 
 
 
While our team of experienced and professional caregivers are not trainers, what we promise is working to support the positive-reinforcement training you are doing with your pets. We will also gladly join you for a session with a trainer to ensure that our caregivers are on board and following the same protocol as your family with your pets. These appointments must be booked outside of the regular work day to ensure caregiver availability. 
 
 
We also strongly recommend all puppies attend a “Puppy Kindergarten” at a force-free class or facility. This is not a class where your dog will learn “obedience.” Rather, your dog will learn valuable life lessons that are vital for them to learn at a young age, such as socialization, coming when called, and how to self-soothe when stressed.
