Hi, My name is Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

“A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Natick from California where I was a dog walker for five years. I grew up in rural NY, we always had at least two dogs plus a bunch more critters. I recently graduated from Humboldt State University were I studied wildlife biology so I can help save all the animals. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

Choosing a boarding kennel for your dog is never an easy decision. When you’ve got multiple options to choose from, how do you know which one is the best choice for your pup?
