“You'll have peace of mind when I'm with your pup!”

I started volunteering with the local humane society years ago and within a month they hired me because of how great I handled and understood the dogs! Then I adopted my first dog! I truly believe that there are no bad dogs; just misunderstood ones. And they call me the "dog whisperer". I will give your pup all the love and care in the most professional manner. I take all safety precautions and will follow your directions.

“Loving Your Dog as if they were my Own! <3”

I have had a passion for dogs as long as I can remember. I have owned two dogs growing up and have interacted with a variety of dogs throughout my childhood and adult years. I am not intimated by large, or small.dogs! I've learned basis training techniques such as sit, lay down, and not pulling. I also love to spoil dogs (within reason), so let me know how you like to treat your dog and I'll love to include that in their time with me!
