Hi! My name is Juliann and I love dogs! I grew up having a Weimaraner named Maxy, and after she crossed the rainbow bridge, we got another Weim puppy named Cleo. She left us in 2014. I still miss them both and am always looking for opportunities to spend time with dogs as I cannot own my own at the moment. Aside from growing up with dogs, my experience includes spending the last 2 years volunteering at my local animal shelter where I walked, bathed, and socialized dogs on a weekly basis. And then there's all the times I've walked and dog sat for friends and neighbors..always a joy :)

Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)

“High quality care begins with trust”

Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup. I was born to take care of dogs and have been lucky to play many different roles in their lives over the past 13 years. I worked at a dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility where I took part in every position there. I have also trained and fostered. My life would be empty without my dogs and there is always room for more in my heart. I can't wait to meet you and yours.
