While growing up I’ve always had pets. From cats to dogs, rabbits and birds. I love being involved with anything to do with animals. They are an important piece to our puzzle & bring joy and happiness to our lives. I currently have three beautiful dogs and their names are Creed, Ramses, and Thor. I lost one named Jasmine who was my therapy dog when I was going through a tough time. I know how much brighter animals make our lives.
Hi my name is Melisa. The pet industry has been part of my entire life. It started at the University of Minnesota studying Animal Behavioral Science. Many years later I was accepted to Exotic Animal Program in Moorpark, Ca. I studied animal behavioral science and training methods. I was chosen to study and train a lion cub named "Ciarra" until she was about a year old. While attending Moorpark animal program I also had training experience with dogs, big cat, birds, and rats. All though most of my work history is in retail management, public relations and teaching the love of animals has yet again landed me back in the pet industry. Currently I have a cat named "Kiity". I treat her like one of my kids. She is super sweet, spoiled, loved and brings joy to our family everyday. We love her very much. I'm very excited to be part of the Pet-i-tude family and am looking forward to all the personalized opportunities that you are able to experience with the customers and "our pet team".
My name is Erica and I'm 24 years old. All my life ever since I was little, I've always wanted to work around animals. I recently graduated from Animal Behavioral College and became a certified vet assistant. I want to continue to grow and learn about all different breeds of animals. My goal is to become a Vet in the next few years. I'm a proud parent to a wonderful 11 year old Maltese named Charlie. He is my motivation. I'm excited to see where my future takes me. I love what I do, and I also love working for Petitude. I always look forward to coming to work every day.
I am currently attending college as an engineering major. I love animals, and I would adopt all of the homeless animals in a heartbeat. I currently only have one dog. Her name is Sophia and she is an apricot Toy Poodle. She is 11 years old, but to those who don't know her, she may still seem like a puppy. She is alive as ever, but her spoiled personality makes her active only when she feels like it :^D. I started working at Pet-i-tude in late April this year—2016—and after working here a little less than two months, I absolutely love it. Working at Pet-i-tude has educated me on many things about animals that I didn't even know I didn't know. I love the food here too. Sophia is the pickiest eater anyone could imagine, but whenever I bring home something from work, she never has any complaints. I can honestly say I love my job, and I wouldn't shop anywhere else, because I'm "Proud, with Pet-i-tude."
I have been in the pet store business for about 2 years. Currently I have one dog named Millie that I have had for 3 years and one cat named Suki who I've had for 7 years.
This is my dog, Bebgium! I love her so much and I literally cannot imagine my life without her. I just recently started working at Pet-i-tude and I'm so grateful to be part of the team! It's been great, seeing all these different breeds of pets and learning something new everyday about them is just incredible. So my passion is photography, I love taking pictures of nature and hopefully I'll reach my goal of becoming a professional photographer and then a photographer professor!
Hi I'm Walker. These are my dogs, Jacque Cousteau and Harvey. Harvey was a rescue dog. I also have a turtle named Lucy. I am a graduate student, but this industry has always been my other passion. Along with worming here I also work as a groomer/bather. I have been in this industry for about 8 years. I love being part of the Petitude team and want to help everyone make the best home for their animals!!
