I'm a groomer and life time dog mom, so your pet's safety is my number one priority. I'm excellent at handling pups of all sizes and temperments, especially the crazy huskies! I feel like every walk should be tailored to the dogs preference.

I'm Paul, professional walker. I have lived in Chicago, San Diego and moved to Sarasota this year. I had dogs since the age of 6. My first dogs were German Shepherd and a Giant Schnauzer Pedigree. I always enjoyed to take responsibility of the dogs at a very young age. As I got older, I got a Central Asian Shepherd. Interesting fact is that they were family members-all related to each other. I love all kinds of animals!!!

Dog Boarding in Sarasota

Sarasota, do you know how your city was named? Legend has it, it was named after the daughter (Sara) of the conquistador, DeStoa. 

One of the city’s main goals is to be clean and aesthetically pleasing –so it makes perfect sense that it’s beautiful and filled with a lot of greenery, lots of space for outdoor activities. This pretty city is warm and welcoming to travelers, families, and furry friends who make the day-to-day routine much sweeter. 

Sarasota is home to several animal rescues including Satchel’s Last Resort which focuses on giving dogs who have been deemed unadoptable a home! This shelter provides a safe place for its residents and temporary animals—so it’s like a little resort! 

Another shelter worth mentioning is the Royal Pet Rescue Inc. Have you looked at all their beautiful doggies? Some of them have been abandoned and need some serious cuddle time. The organization got their not-for-profit designation to save more animals, and has since rescued over 2000! They take care of all the spaying/neutering, bathing, and medical needs so that your pup is ready to go once you meet them. Sarasota has so much to offer, so why not offer these little furry friends a chance to tour the beautiful city with their new best friend (you!)?

Christmas - a time to spoil all your loved ones, keep your dog away from the tree, and your kids away from the gifts.

You can check out Canine Christmas for these fun daytime activities, and even get a family photo with Santa ( maybe keep the doggie clothing on your pup, especially if they're looked dashing). This event is presented by Bishop Animal Shelter, and will even have a parade of adoptable doggies if you want to expand your fam-jam.
