“Your dog’s best friend when you can’t be there”

I am passionate about dogs and have raised and loved multiple medium to large breed dogs over the past 30 years. My current baby is an active 87 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback, the second Rhodesian I have raised from puppyhood. I tailor my level of effort to your dog’s needs and specialize in high energy dogs who enjoy a faster pace. I treat each of my dog clients as if they were my own and have a proven WAG! track record of being 100% reliable, giving above and beyond care to my clients on every walk.

I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Dog Boarding in Norfolk

Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center are committed to helping critters in need! Founded to provide supplementary medical aid to the Norfolk Animal Care Center, Friends of Norfolk Animal Care Center has grown each year with the support of the community. "Friends" works tirelessly as a gap service provider to animals in dire need of veterinary treatment or forever homes.  They raise funds by hosting events all year round to contribute to improvements at the shelter or to create emergency funds.  When they are not busy caring for homeless pets, Friends of NACC produces animal cookbooks and calendars annually to spread cheer and paws-itivity. 


Rainbow Animal Rescue is one of the smaller, canine-only shelters in the Norfolk area.  What they lack in shelter space, they surely make up for in dedication and hard work, as they are an entirely volunteer-based organization.  Their fights against unnecessary euthanasia and irresponsible pet ownership are apparent to all those who pay them a visit.  Rainbow Animal Rescue maintains several national partnerships with organizations dedicated to these fights and is always looking for more volunteers to join their team.  


The Norfolk SPCA is actually one of the oldest animal shelters in the entire country, established in the 1800s! With an intake of about 1,000 animals and 950 adoptions each year, they certainly have their hands full. That said, it is one of the few no-kill shelters contracted by the government, offering a number of various services to the community such as the Senior Dogs for Senior Citizens project, a pet pantry, and limited veterinary services.  This shelter has been at it for decades and decades, and is showing no signs of slowing down!
