Hi! My name is Dana Manos. I’m the owner of Comfort Zone Critter Care.

I graduated in 1999 from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I became a Certified Professional Pet Sitter through Pet Sitters International in 2018. In 2019, I obtained my certification through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. In 2020, I obtained Fear Free Animal Trainer certification. In 2021, I obtained Fear Free Pet Sitter Certification. In 2022, I obtained my certification as a Canine Behavior Consultant.

My various positions over the past two-plus decades have given me the opportunity to develop advanced skills in handling animals and interpreting body language.

I have experience with a wide variety of animals, including exotics. I grew up with dogs as a child. As an adult, I have had a dog, 4 cats, a rat, a guinea pig, and various reptiles as pets.

My pet sitting and dog walking service areas include, but are not limited to: Depew, Elma, Lancaster, S. Cheektowaga, and West Seneca, NY.

My dog training service area is most of Western New York.

I look forward to taking care of your critters in their comfort zone. Welcome to the Comfort Zone Critter Care Family!!
