“Your pup(s) will have fun on their walks with me!”
Aloha! My name is Norma! I’ve owned large breed dogs all my life; Akitas, Doberman Pinschers, Pit/terrier mixes, Aussies. More recently, our pups were two small Jack Russell terriers. Our current ‘kids’ are a Ridgeback hound mix and a small poi pup. I’m hoping to meet and walk more pups that need exercise and mental stimulation!

“Pup's Best Friend”
Hi! I'm Jen. I'm not a dog owner, but I have spent a great deal of time taking care of family and friends' dogs and cats. I love being around dogs and enjoy pampering them like going out for walks, playing in the park, giving them baths, brushing their hair and even their teeth. I'm also a pretty active person, as I exercise at least 3 times a week doing tai chi or walking. I hope to earn your trust and confidence in taking care of your fur-baby! Mahalo.
