MEET THE PACK
HI! WE’RE NAYARA AND KAYA! WHO RESCUED WHO?
I’m Nayara and I was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It’s the third largest city in Brazil, after Sao Paulo and Rio, and it’s where I spent my first 27 years. As a Brasileira, I grew up loving culture, the outdoors, a good laugh, traveling and exploring new foods and drinks.
My wanderlust, however, took me far from South America. I traveled around Europe and Australia before landing in California; I now call San Diego my home.
I’ve always been passionate about dogs. I grew up surrounded by puppy love and I learned from a young age to value and respect animals and treat them as a family member.
There was only one time in my life that I remember not having a dog, and that was when I moved from Brazil to San Diego. I couldn’t stop thinking about the next time I would have a dog.
After I moved to San Diego, my dog – who was still in Brazil – passed away. That was a hard time for me. I had always planned on seeing my “furry sister” again. But now, even if I went back to Brazil, I wouldn’t have the chance to have her back again.
THEN KAYA CAME INTO MY LIFE!
It was when Patrick (the number one reason I call San Diego my home) and I rescued Kaya that I found myself in charge of a dog for the first time on my own.
For the first time I was a dog mom, a true “pawrent”… not just a dog sister. I wanted to be the best momma I could be so I went deep into all the resources I could find on raising a puppy, training and overcoming the challenges.
My curious nature took over and I’m having the best time of my life! I couldn’t have asked to be in a better place: San Diego is the most dog-friendly city in the world.
The support and openness of the San Diego community has been very positive and helped to push my obsession a little bit more because everywhere I look and go there are puppies.
It should not surprise me, but I am still a little amazed when I see water bowls sitting outside of nice restaurants and I simply love when you enter in the restaurants and the hostess asks: “Can your dog have a treat?” It’s wonderful!
On top of that, there are many restaurants with dog menus, happy hours for dogs, beer for dogs, and more. It’s a true paradise for our canine friends, and it was not difficult at all to immerse myself in this new world and totally love it.
As I’ve gotten closer and closer with Kaya, I’ve learned a great deal about parenting, training and bonding with dogs. It’s my first time training a dog. I haven’t taken any courses or training classes, and learning everything on my own has given me a unique perspective of this world. What a wonderful experience it has been to learn and teach an amazing dog like Kaya!
HERE COMES THE WILD WHISKERS!
I could go on and on about dog stuff for ages! It never bores me! Therefore, The Wild Whiskers was created as a continuation of the adventure that began in the middle of 2016 through our Instagram. Other pawrents were asking me great questions and I wanted to share my answers with everyone! Their questions awoke an unknown desire and realization to share the passion I feel with others.
The more I’m getting into this blog, the more I realize how other pawrents are thrilled by the knowledge I am able to share. I have a big passion for sharing all I’ve learned and want to inspire others to have the best time with their “fur-kids.”
