“A tired dog is a happy dog!”

Hi I'm Ashley! I have 6+ years working with animals. I started my career at Paws Atlanta Animal shelter as a kennel technician. I'm a trail runner, wife, and mom with a big heart and love for the outdoors and dogs. I know an active and well-socialized dog means a happier, healthier, and much better behaved dog for you to come home to. That's why I'm here to take your energetic pooches out into the world to do all the things dogs love to do - run, play, sniff, chase, dig, roll, and swim.

“Taking care of your furry friends for you!”

Hi fellow dog lovers! As a Aussie parent,, I know how important it is both to your pup and to you to have quality interactions, fun and exercise. I am an active guy who does triathlons and marathons and love to have my dog go along with me as I train. Your furry companion will get the same attention, love, fun and care as mine does when we go out. I'm equally at ease on a neighborhood walk or a long hike at a local park; whatever your dog needs they will get as if they were my own.

It should go without saying that I absolutely love dogs. A lot. One of my favorite childhood pictures is of me taking a nap on my babysitter's American Bulldog. Since then, I've learned to walk on my own and have learned that I'm quite good at walking dogs, too. As the owner of a very excitable and social pit bull, I've also developed a keen understanding of just how complex dogs can be. Over the last two years, I've also learned to see the world through their eyes to set up every dog I encounter for success.

Dog Boarding in Madison

The Madison Animal Rescue Foundation (MARF) partners with Madison Animal Control to try and keep dogs off the street and find them forever homes! The beautiful thing about MARF is that all of their animals live with a foster family before they are adopted, so all pets are trained, socialized, and loved.  Run by volunteers, MARF is a huge community advocate for responsible pet ownership, educating the public on preventative actions such as flea/tick collars, desexing, and heartworm protection. 

One of the largest no-kill shelters in Madison County, The Ark is committed to providing care to all animals surrendered and to give companionship to humans seeking to adopt.  The Ark operates solely on the generosity of the community and makes a point to constantly give back.  Pets of The Ark make regular visits to nursing homes and are the happy faces of their annual fundraising telethon.  As if that was not enough, The Ark is dedicated to providing a safe haven for animals coming from domestic violence households and has an emergency response team on call to assist the Red Cross whenever necessary. 

If you couldn't gather from the name, Madison Small Pups is a shelter committed to the little guys.  They rescue toy breeds from puppy mills, the streets, and through surrender.  Madison Small Pups makes a point to crate train each and every dog they receive while also providing them with the necessary veterinary care to be able to go to a forever home.  Surviving on donations alone, Madison Small Pups still finds the time to write detailed biographies of all of the animals they serve in order to make sure interested families are the perfect fit!
