Hi, I’m Eden! I grew up in New Jersey with a Bichon Havanese and Westie in my family. I started walking and sitting for the dog’s in my neighborhood, where I gained experience taking care of all breeds and sizes. I have lived in Pittsburgh for the past five years and now have an 8 month old Collie who is very active and social. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I can give the loving attention and care for your dogs as much as I would for my own, when you need help. Can’t wait to meet your pups!
