WALTER – Owner

Walter has a BFA in Computer Animation from Ringling College of Art and Design and was in the animation and broadcast industry before deciding on a less hectic life and pursued his love of dogs and cats by buying Fetch! Pet Care of Sarasota. I have dog training experience and many clients call me the “Animal Whisperer” for most animals trust and bond with me. My passion is Pet care and I could not be happier running my company. For the Pets!

Cats urinating on your bed? Cats scratching up the couch? Cats biting at ankles? Humans reaching the end of their patience? I’ve seen it all – and there *is* a solution to restore harmony and happiness!
Unfortunately, cats are often viewed through “dog glasses” and expected to behave in the same way. Cats are not dogs. They have different needs and motivations. How do you find out what is frustrating your feline friend and how to bring happiness back to your home?
