“Taking care of your pups, one walk at a time!”

Hi there! In my family there are 3 rescues ranging from personalities and size; the spunky chihuahua mix(who is also the alpha if you ask her), the cowardly black lab mix, and the cuddly, substantial boxer. Since our members are rescues who all came from different pasts, their issues range as much as they do so I have experience working with more sensitive or timid dogs who need a little extra patience as well as dogs whose energy outlasts their attention span.
