July 4th Pet Safety Tips

Hard to believe that July 4th is this Monday!  Wow!  Here are some pet safety tips to keep your precious treasures out of harms way.

  • Keep your pets away from the BBQ area due to matches and lighter fluid.
  • Do not give alcoholic beverages or caffeine to your pets as it is toxic.
  • Keep your pets home; don’t take them to the fireworks display.
  • Make sure your pets have their proper tags attached to their collars. If they were to get loose, they can be properly returned.
  • Lots of dogs end up in shelters on this day as they get disoriented and lost due to fireworks.
  • Keep your dogs in the crate if necessary.  As another option, keep them in the laundry room as it is typically well-ventilated.
  • No table leftovers as they can be toxic.
  • Keep them inside so they are safe.

In Memory of Zeppelin, My Sweet German Shepherd

This blog is dedicated to my German Shepherd, Zeppelin who passed away  quite some time ago. For the miracle of pet bereavement support, I am able to own a dog again. Zeppelin, thank you for being in my life.  I dedicate this writing in your memory.

I remember when you came home for the first time, Zeppelin. You were so cute. I named you Zeppelin. I took you everywhere with me. I loved you very much. When you were a puppy, I would sneak you on the bus in my beach bag. That’s when you were very small, of course. One day when I took you to the beach, you peed in my beach bag. I saw the bag dripping, people noticed and laughed!

You were such a pretty dog. you had a beautiful blond face with a black snout. I just loved the blend of the the colours of your coat. you were a tri-colored, Sable shepherd. You were blond, tan, and black. You were gorgeous. You were also my protector and best friend. You would growl if you didn’t like somebody! You were my dog! Dr, Nowicki, the veterinarian even complimented me by saying she had never seen a dog attach to her owner as you did with me. We had a very strong bond. Everybody knew you were my dog.

It never failed, when a police car or ambulance’s siren would go off, you would always howl. To this day, I always hear your howl whenever I hear a siren. I even howl for you. That’s the wolf in you!

I will always love you. You will forever be present in my heart and soul.

We honor your memory, sweet girl.

We honor your memory, sweet girl.

Beautiful Sunrise on Jupiter’s Dog Beach

What a beautiful sunrise this morning on Jupiter’s Dog Beach with Maxwell and friends.

Jupiter Beach in Florida


Nice to receive compliments from clients

One of our regular clients is off for summer break.  Will truly miss her.  She is such a joy to walk and play with.  She loves the her treats, belly rubs and fresh water after her walks.  She resides in Jupiter, FL.

Her mommy wrote such a kind note:

“Thank you for all you do and have done to take care of my baby!  I am able to go to work with peace and with peace of mind.  I love getting the pictures throughout my days and often share them with my students.  I hope you have a wonderful summer.”

The Story of President Max-well’s Pet Services


Here is the story of President Max-well’s Pet Services?  My name is June Collins and I am the President/Owner and Professional Pet Sitter with President Max-well’s Pet Services. Let me tell you about myself: I was born in Albany, New York and grew up in South Florida. I worked 17 years in the legal profession and as a court reporter for 12 years. I am also fluent in Spanish after living in Venezuela. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from Florida Atlantic University.

As a child, I always had a love for animals and nature. I have always said that “Animals provide unconditional love and are our healers and teachers.” “Nature is there for us. We just have to go out and take a retreat, even if it is for a short time.” While I was a student at FAU I wanted to earn extra income – Some years before I had a German Shepherd, Zeppelin who died – So I needed to fill the void by walking dogs, so I started walking dogs and pet sitting part time. I have been doing this for 15+ years and in May of 2012, I decided to make it a business and named it President Max-well’s Pet Services, Inc. What is in the name? I wanted to combine my dog and cat’s names, as Maxwell is my dog and Presley is my cat; hence, President Maxwell!

I reside with my dog, Maxwell Francis who is a Scottish Terrier/Schipperke mix and my black cat Presley Michael in Jupiter, FL.

Some other activities I enjoys of course, animals, jazz, Scottish Terriers, walking on the beach, bird watching, walking in nature. I am an avid believer in alternative health and modalities. I offer Reiki for animals, which is an ancient Japanese modality that relieves stress, anxiety and pain by unblocking blocked energy.
