“Your dog is safe and secure with me!”

Although safety is a priority, I also love to include enrichment and training opportunities whenever appropriate, using only positive reinforcement methods. Respecting and “listening” to a dog creates a healthy relationship and contributes to a positive experience for both of us!

“I'm a certified dog trainer. Dogs are my life.”

I can't wait to meet your best friend. Dogs are my kryptonite and I enjoy spending all my time with them. I take my own dogs on one or two 30 min walks daily as well as play ball or tug-a-war with them multiple times throughout the day. I realize my life is leading me to doing something involving dogs and my first step is starting out as a dog walker. I am so excited to spend my days with your precious puppers.

I have lived in Orange Park, FL for 15 years. I've been around dogs most of my life. Currently we own a Shih Tzu, a lab, and 3 cats. All of which are very spoiled. I frequently watch my neighbor's animals. She has a dog, 3 cats, and 6 chickens. I love animals and the only time I enjoy walking is when I'm in the company of a dog.

“To care with respect, and compassion for animals!”

I am Olga. I have been around dogs, horses and cats all my life. I did equestrian and wanted to be a veterinarian. I love to care for animals. And enjoy being around them. I am an active person and like to run, and if your dogs are up to running, they will have an awesome exercise. I am able to have dogs who can pull, and can walk with four dogs. Being with horses made me a strong person. They will be happy coming back home. The best customer service is my priority for both, your pets and you!

“There’s nothing better than a happy floof!”

When it comes to pups I’m good with all sizes, all shapes, and most energy levels. I’m not just a walker, I’m a pet sitter. Have a reasonable request, just ask. I’ll do my best. I’m as detailed as possible during my visits and in the reports I send.

Dog Boarding in Jacksonville

Jacksonville, Florida is home to some amazing people, as well as some of the most outstanding sights, attractions, and events in the state! While, yes, the lower parts of Florida are pretty darn great, Jacksonville has a community that has proven to be paw-sitively terrific! 


For example, the folks over at The Old Dog House are doing their best to make the lives of dogs better. They work hard to find homes for homeless, elderly dogs in their care.  These grey-faced furbabies are looking for loving homes to retire into, and already have a wealth of life experience to share, which is what makes them so special to the people at TODH.


Another fine example of the loving concern of the city is Pit Sisters Rescue. These pawsome folks take in Pitbulls and Pitbull mixes and find them appropriate, safe, and loving homes. They work solely on donations, often putting in many extra hours to provide the necessary veterinary and supportive care that the dogs need from the time they arrive to when they find their forever homes.


After you've had a chance to visit these great friends, stop in at the Jacksonville Dog Cafe, where you can grab a free cup of amazing roasted coffee while visiting with some of the local, paws-itively adorable pals there. All of the dogs are from local rescues and get to spend a bit of time socializing at the cafe while looking for their fur-ever homes. What better way to enjoy a great cup of coffee than to spend it with some furry friends?
