I have loved dogs and cats since my earliest memories. I grew up in a house oftentimes filled with Golden Retriever puppies. We bred, with a professional stud, our females once each to continue the lineage not to make money.The last 26 years have been spent with Boston terriers which have been our "children" and constant companions. I have worked for a number of dog daycare facilities and a dog walking/sitting business. I have, and have used, pet first aid and CPR.

“Let’s enjoy a walk in the city !”

My love for dogs has been growing ever since my first puppy! My goal is to give your dog(s) the opportunity to adventure around town and be pampered as much as possible. I have had dogs since I was the age of 5 and I fell in love with having them and taking on the responsibility of taking care of them. I have training with proper walking and grooming and have used this training for not only my dogs but other friend’s, family’s, and neighbor’s dogs as well. I look forward to meeting your dog!
