Little Buddies owner, Sean, has been surrounded by dogs his whole life, starting at the age of five when he formed relationship with the neighbor’s Bird Dogs. His family has always had a dog (or two) in it, starting with Ranger and loving him for a lucky 18 years. When Sean moved to California from the Northeast, he adopted two brother-and-sister corgi-mix rescues and quickly fell in love. His commitment to his work shows with how he involves himself in each dog’s well-being. Sean is also certified in pet CPR and first aid.
Member of Pet Sitters Associates.
Little Buddies co-owner, James, was raised with Gretchen, a gentle and loving Dachshund that lived an eventful 16 years. His family bred and showed champion Dalmatians starting with the first momma, Kelly, and later Obie and Casey, where James participated in all aspects of the process. It was clear he had a deep love and connection with animals from the beginning. He continued his love in the show ring, becoming a junior handler for the American Kennel Club, where he earned 8 major points showing three different Dalmatians. He has had his own cat named Miew, numerous fish, an African Ball Python named Simon, a turtle named Speedy, rats Nikki and George (and lots of little babies came from them!) and most recently adorable corgi mixes Gus and Foxxy Love.
Stephanie has been a pet care giver for sometime now, with her most recent jobs being a pet sitter as well as an apprentice to a dog trainer. She loves to learn more about all aspects of animals, including healthcare administration and enforcing positive dog care training. A natural to animals, she has always had pets in her life. The most exciting time for Stephanie is when she bonds with animals, helping them live better lives.
She joined the team in 2021.
He's always been fascinated by dogs, starting with volunteering at an animal shelter at a young age and eventually earned a position there. Esteban was responsible for the intake of stray pets and developed skills calming down over-excited or nervous animals. He had the good fortune of working with show dog golden retrievers and blood hounds. He's thankful to work with pets of all sorts and the amazing team at Little Buddies! He is fluent in both English and Spanish.
He has been with us for 3 1/2 years.
He joined the Little Buddies team this year, 2021, because he loves animals. Parsa gained industry experience working in the pet retail space as well as in the field as a dog walker and pet sitter. He's spent time volunteering with his local SPCA and, most importantly, working at a bird sanctuary, where he developed love for birds. We are very lucky to have Parsa in the Little Buddies family.
