My name is Sage Halford. As a native Houstonian, I have lived in Lakeside Estates for over 20 years. I have always had a passion for animals and have worked in every animal field at some point in my careeer. I started as a kennel technician at Taurus Training in Austin TX, then worked in private veterinary medicine. After majoring in business at UT Austin, I returned to Houston and started working at the Houston SPCA as a veterinary technician. Within 2 years, I worked my way up to Animal Cruelty Investigator. You may have seen me on Animal Cops Houston on Animal Planet from 2003 to 2008. At the birth of my son I went to work at Ascension Episcopal School and continued working as a pet sitter for 2 companies. In June of 2014 I left the school to open Lakeside Pet Sitters. I love animals and want to give them the best care possible. I will work hard to establish long lasting relationships with the families I work with so that one day I can pass the company to my children.

Cat mommies and daddies out there, this question is for you. What kind of cat litter do you use and why? Traditional clay, pressed pine, wheat, recycled pressed paper, or something else? Personally I like the pressed pine. To me there is less mess and less smell. It is also cheaper and lasts longer than the traditional clay.
I have a question for my dog owners out there. My dog Zeus loves other dogs and once he meets them he is very playful and submissive. However, he barks like crazy when he sees dogs on our walks. He is a 70 pound pit, Rhodesian etc mix rescue dog. When he barks he looks and sounds aggressive. I have taken him to training and the trainer is now recommending that I get him a bark collar to wear on our walks. I am hesitant to use one. Has anyone out there used a bark collar? Would you recommend it? Did it work? I much prefer using positive reinforcement to train him but nothing is working.
