“Happy Paws make Happy Owners, One walk @ a Time!!”

Hi my name is Lisa, I’ve worked with animals ever since I was 14 years old. I previously worked as a supervisor at Lake Norman pet Paradise, I learned a lot in the two years of working there such as observing the dogs behavior. I’ve gain a lot of trust and confidence in myself when it comes to aggressive dogs, and learning limitations for senior dogs. I know how to match up large, medium & small dogs due to their temperament in separate yards so each dog can have a fun and safe day at day camp.
