A little about Teri Ann:
Teri Ann has grown up with animals since she was little. She had big dreams on becoming a veterinarian, but decided against it when she saw her vet perform surgery on her horse's knee, but that never stopped her from dreaming of working with animals one day. 

In 1999, she decided to begin her pet sitting business in Houston, TX and became successful at it. In 2001, she moved her business to CA, so she could be closer to her family. Even though Teri Ann is a Cali girl, where she was raised, she continued moving along with her family and ended up back in AZ in 2006, where she was born and has been running Comfy Pets of AZ here ever since. 

She gives one-on-one attention to all her animals and even became a certified Emergency Animal Medical Tech I (EAMT I) and a Pet Tech Instructor, so she can continue helping animals medically, as well as training pet owners. She offers Pet CPR, First Aid, and Pet Care Classes, and teaches AZ Wildlife & Your K9, which no one else does in the state.

In 2011, Comfy Pets of AZ offered a new program, Doggie Doo Adventures, where a dog gets out of the house and into nature. She offers dog hikes, lake and park excursions, as well as all-day field trips. It's amazing to her when a dog steps out of her doggie mobile and onto snow for the first time. She looks forward to an awesome 2013 with teaching, pet care and wilderness classes.

  1. Never, ever leave your dog in the car;
  2. Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;
  3. Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;
  4. Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;
  5. When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;
  6. If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;
  7. Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and heartworms – consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet;
  8. Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats, and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.


Household pet tip for dogs from Blue Ribbon K9 Academy:

Train your dog to use a pet door by putting a dab of butter on the bottom edge of the flap. Have another person hold the dog on the side with the butter and you stand on the other side with treats. Your dog will lick the bottom of the flap, pushing it open while you encourage it through and offering treats. Happy Training!
