Hello ~ I'm Dawn. I feel privileged to make myself available to you, and your pet. What a great service and convenience to provide busy owners with the peace of mind that their pet's needs are being met! I have felt the nagging guilt of not being able to "make that happen," due to work conflicts, fatigue, etc. I'm a responsible, mature and physically strong individual with both background with multiple "walks" of animals, and the common sense understanding which that breeds, AND an innate, irrepressible love for, and response to these creatures who are in our care. I spent hours as a kid reading "dog dictionaries," interested in each breed. Personally, I've lived with Labs, Goldens, Blue Heelers, Pit Bulls, Spaniels, Pekingese, Pugs, Shi-Poos, Huskies, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, an Akita...and more. As with little children, I have a natural love for animals and get down on their level and engage demonstratively (dog-permitting and respectful of the pet's temperament and comfort zone.

“Nobody love dogs more than I do”

Hi, I'm Lola. I've had dogs all my life and can't imagine a life without one. My first was a Cocker Spaniel named Duffy and he was part of my family before I was born. For my 7th birthday, I got Pinky. She was with me until I left for college at 21 (I'm a late bloomer) I've had many more since then. At one point I had 6! All rescues. All fabulous. They were my comfort and salvation when my husband passed away. I have two darling Shih Tzu's - Zoltan & Nala and my cats, Yoda & Bob
