My name is Stacy De Nooy and as a pet owner, I know how important it is to find a responsible and reliable person to care for your pets while you're away.
I'm a dog mom to our handsome boy, Zeus and our angel boy, Bugsey. They are my world and inspire me to be a better person. They are such a big part of my life that I named my business after them! (B for Bugsey and Z for Zeus).
My husband, Steve, and I are huge animal lovers and always enjoy any opportunity to interact with them. We believe in animal advocacy and volunteer with rescues and other agencies whenever possible.
What started out as a dog walking service has grown and evolved into a concierge level pet services company with a focus on pet safety, health and wellness. Since the day I started this business I constantly searched for ways to learn and grow as a pet parent and business owner. My passion for pets and desire for education led me to many seminars, conferences, classes and professional training events. I have voluntarily taken many steps to educate myself and develop experience in a widely unregulated industry. This includes traveling out of state to attend pet professional conferences and seminars. I participate in continuing education courses and follow industry publications to stay up to date on trends and events.
Unlike others in this industry, I have never paid for a "membership" to organizations offering professional titles in exchange for fees. As you can see throughout this site I believe in hard work, hands-on education and earning my professional experience.
Before founding this business in 2018, I worked for over 15 years in the financial and insurance industry. I've been fingerprinted by the federal government and undergone extensive background checks. I have dealt with highly sensitive client information, such as Social Security Numbers, back account and routing numbers and detailed liquid asset breakdowns. Many of the customers I worked with were high net worth individuals requiring white glove service. My husband currently works in the insurance arena with a financial background as well. You can be assured that I understand and appreciate the value of privacy, confidentiality and personal trust!
I have also solidified my commitment to providing outstanding service to my clients by becoming a Pet CPR & First Aid Instructor. I have the ability to share my passion for pets with the public and teach them valuable skills to make a difference in a pet emergency. I am also trained in several other methods of pet first aid. In addition to my advocacy of pet safety, I have developed a focus on pet health and wellness.
I am a Certified Pet Food Nutrition Specialist; I am able to assist clients in analyzing the ingredients in their pet's food and recommend healthier alternatives, or different options to alleviate certain conditions brought on by particular pet food ingredients.
I am currently in-training to become a Canine Therapeutic Massage Therapist.
BZ Pet Company focuses on pet health, safety and wellness in everything we do. I am incredibly proud and honored to serve my community in the advocacy for pets!
