Emily Reynolds is the owner of My Spoiled Pet. Ever since childhood, Emily has been passionate about caring for animals. And even though her journey was anything but easy, Emily turned her passion into a career. Diagnosed with Graves Thyroid Disease in 2002 and dealing with years of her life spent in treatment, Emily has come out the other side better than ever and passionately living her dream. Her path to My Spoiled Pet was a journey of evolving animal services, starting with helping neighbors’ and friends’ pets, then volunteering at shelters and working with rescue dogs and cats from the illegal meat trade during her travels, and finally serving as a flight volunteer bringing rescue dogs to their forever home – including her own dingo mix, Brownie.
During her many experiences, Emily was introduced to fellow animal lovers and the prevalence of rescued animals in San Diego, as well as the special needs that these families and their pets have. This was a perfect opportunity for Emily to pursue her calling.
For Emily and her team, My Spoiled Pet is much more than a simple pet sitting and dog walking business; they are personally invested in each animal they care for, becoming part of their fur family. When asked about her philosophy, Emily shared with a pet’s life magazine that she feels that “to care for an animal while an owner is at work or the whole family is on vacation for two weeks is a huge responsibility and quite frankly, an honor.”
Emily’s focus is providing one-on-one care while facilitating exercise, feeding, medication, transportation, and most importantly, acting as the pack leader who cares for both the animals and the home she is in. Her devotion to animals goes above and beyond her business.
Emily also donates her time to helping rescue animals both in North County and abroad by partnering with several local animal rescue organizations for adoption events, as well as serving as a flight partner with Sol Dog Rescue and K-9 Aid.
Caring for animals is in Emily’s heart: “I feel like the luckiest person on earth to do what I love. I combined my passion for animals, exercise and teaching to create a successful, growing business.” Whether you need pet sitting, walking, day care or exercise, My Spoiled Pet is your trusted solution.
