Hi, my name is Kathy. I've loved animals since I can remember and have been walking and training dogs since I was a teenager. Giving me nearly 16 years of experience. I am currently in school to become a certified dog trainer, while I work as a veterinary assistant. I have 5 dogs of my own and have several regular pup sitting clients as well. I have helped train shelter pups who, through no fault of their own, have behavior issues. I am comfortable with large or small dogs, puppies to geriatric.
