“Providing the best care for your best friend!”

Being with animals makes me happy! I grew up with dogs and cats and have owned dogs, cats and even horses as an adult. I currently own three small dogs: 10 year old Riley, 4 year old Henry and a puppy named Stella. Previously I worked for 13 years as a teacher’s assistant for elementary kiddos so I have lots of patience! I am also trained and certified in dog first aid. Rest assured that I will treat your pup with love and care!

I love dogs. I am fairly comfortable with walking both small and large dogs as long as they are fairly well trained and don't pull too much. I know that it is important to make sure that any dog we encounter along the way is friendly before we approach it. I also know that on very hot days it is important to be observant for signs of heat stroke. If I fear the dog is suffering from heat stroke I will take precautions and treat it immediately. Weather permitting and with permission from the owner, I'd love to take the dog to the dog park. However, I will make sure that the dog is trained to come when called before I let them off the leash. I would definitely never put a dog in harm's way. Most importantly, I would do my best to bond with the dog and be someone the dog enjoys being around.

Hi, I'm Ally! I just recently moved to Raleigh in October of 2017. I grew up in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with my three dogs Lilly, Cortez, and Roman! Lilly was a Lab/Boxer mix that we adopted from the MSPCA, Cortez was a Chihuahua that we adopted from a pet store, and Roman is a Golden Retriever that my parents bought to become a therapy dog for myself! Currently, my boyfriend and I own our own dog named Toby, who is a Husky mix that we adopted from the Wake County Animal Center! I began dog sitting when I was younger. Our neighbor Matthew had a Border Collie named Stanley that we watched every time he traveled for his job. It was from as little as three days to the longest of two and a half weeks. I love all animals, dogs especially! I've been vegan for three years due to my love of animals. I plan to go to school to be a Veterinarian Technician in the near future. I would love to use my endless compassion for animals to ensure your pet is treated with the best service; keeping them healthy, entertained, and most importantly, happy! I will treat your pet with care, kindness, and love. I will make sure they will receive the best Wag! experience, keeping them safe and happy!
