What a privilege it was to interview and FEATURE our Az Pet Professionals member, Sheila Iyenagar!
Sheila has been a member of Az Pet Professionals February 15th, 2009.
Sheila, a professional dog trainer and owner of both Lotus Dog Training and Boarding and Reservation Rewards Animal Rescue, was ever so gracious in letting me take up part of her busy work schedule the morning of March 31st.
Sheila offers in home dog boarding and training as well as rescues and fosters dogs that are looking for their very own home. Most of these dogs are from the Reservation. If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of these special dogs, please go to their website, Lotus Dog Training and Boarding at: http://www.lotusdogtrainingandboarding.com/.
New to her beautiful, spacious property, Sheila and her pack moved into their new place a little over a month ago. I was so impressed by the new facility! It was so spacious, clean, professional, and warm and cozy. It appeared organized and bright. The dogs were happy and vocal as I came in to observe.
In addition to her spacious home and Boarding facility there are dog runs outside as well as two very large and spacious “Play Pens” for the dogs to enjoy supervised “romp and play”. There is an additional lengthwise fenced area that offers as a holding area for a dog that may be getting his area cleaned and tended to or just too simply stretch his legs.
Sheila and her Kennel Manager, Lani have big plans for the new facility. In the next year it will be exciting to watch them grow and implement the many plans they have for the business. Hoping to be able to add more outdoor/indoor runs for the dogs as well as a in ground salt water, play pool for the dogs. I am excited to watch the growth!
Anyone out there with extra salt water pool supplies that they would like to donate??
If anyone would like to donate supplies that they could use such as lumbar, fencing, concrete, sprinklers, landscaping plants, (especially large shade trees) etc. or Dog related items such as dog kennels, food, dog beds, bowls, etc. please contact Sheila at: 480-776-4863.
What a handsome, charming fellow he is!
The fourth and last fur friend I met this morning was Carmella. Carmella is an Aussie Mix with perhaps some Boxer mixed into the groove. She is approximately 1 years old. She loves kids and other dogs.
Carmella was found on the Reservation and had been hit by a car. She sustained many injuries including a fractured hip. With extensive care Sheila and Lani got her back on track. The use of the Treadmill has aided tremendously in her recovery.
Thank you for your continued Support of the Az Pet Professionals!
From all of us! Remember we work for YOU!
