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.

Hi everyone! Thanks for considering me to walk your dog! I'm a dog lover, and my border collie mix is one of the best parts of my life! I volunteer and foster dogs when I'm not working on graduate school. I've learned dog behavior from multiple trainers, and as a foster parent I have experience with dogs who are anxious or have health issues. As a dog owner myself, I know it can be stressful leaving your dog! I'll treat yours like my own!
