    “Animal lover”

    Nice to meet you! My primary occupation is mobile detailing. When I’m not at work, my days revolve around pets- whether it’s training at my local shelter, or simply completing a walk, I’m available for any occasion. I have always had cats, or a dog, or even fish, but having two toddlers makes it difficult. I found a happy medium with Wag! I believe this service should be as straightforward and consistent as possible, so the best way to accommodate is if we have direct communication!

    “Pawsense Daycare & Boarding where every1's family”

    I'm the owner of Pawsense Daycare. Prior to opening in 2019, I primarily worked with show dogs, training them. I'm specialized in animal psychology, behaviour modifications, first aid & CPR, fear free training, and AKC registered. When placed into a new environment it can be quite stressful, so I am always working to help reduce their anxiety, if any, and ensure they are living their best life. As a friendly reminder, dogs are crated overnight to ensure their safety in a new environment.
