Hi! My name is Jamie. I am a mother of three beautiful girls ages 13, 11, 5 and have been a dog owner most of my life. I was with my previous employer for 19 years and left them after I moved my family from Utah to Georgia. I am an animal lover and a current pet parent myself. I know how important it is to find the right person to care for our "fur babies". I would love to be the one to care for your four-legged child when you can't be there.

I have loved dogs, as well as other animals, since I was a child. I’ve cared for my neighbors 2 black labs starting from when they were puppies. I would walk them and sometimes sit them. I did that for about 2 years. I also owned a small yorkie puppy from when I was 5. He did pass away when he was 12 though. It was very devastating because he was my pal. I took him on walks and to the dog park. He was truly my best friend. I absolutely LOVE dogs of all sizes and ages.
