“Experienced with training and patient dog lover!”

I’ve been a lifelong dog lover, but my dedication to pups doesn’t just end there! I have over 14+ years of experience as a dog owner or handler. I wouldn’t trade a second of it for anything! I’ve learned so much in the process, and getting to bring happiness to loving pups is always such an amazing experience.

“It's all about the fur babies big and small!”

My name is Penny Merta.  My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! As a pet lover myself I understand the difficulty of finding someone who will care for your pets and respect your home. All pets are unique and deserve undivided attention.If you have a bored pooch and need daily dog walks, I will be there. I will not only treat your pets like my own, but I will ensure they are in good hands!

Hi, I'm Dakota! I've grown up with a yorkichon, boxer, and pitbull, named Rowdy, Saxon, and Odin! I've been caring for family, friends, and my own animals my entire life. I love the challenge of getting to know new dogs, and making every experience loving and memorable for each pet. No dog is too big or too small for me, and I believe every breed is beautiful! When I'm not dancing, I'm hiking and exploring, so I can't wait to share some outdoor time with your pet!
