My experience with dogs started as a child. In seventh grade, my best friend’s mom owned a dog kennel, where I volunteered throughout middle and HS. The kennel eventually switched ownership, so I got a job at a doggy daycare, but when the kennel reopened I was hired. During my time at the new facility I played many roles; trainer, groomer, manager, and everything in between. For five years I also pet sat a highly trained German Shepherd guard dog who belonged to a prominent Israeli family.

“I believe pets are family and treat them as such.”

I have walked dogs and have worked with Wag for a little over 3 years now. I have done boarding and sitting. I can give meds. I have took a pet CPR and first aid class. If you need boarding for your dog/s and if they need to be the only dog/s. Just let me know and my dogs can stay at my parents house. I look forward to caring for your furbabies. Thank you.

Enjoying life with my furry animal companions. Loves dogs, long walks in the park, and giving belly rubs. As a veterinary assistant I have had the opportunity to walk hundreds of different dogs, and many different breeds. My volunteer work at the local shelter taught me the value of patience, tender care, and love when working with dogs. Also, I understand the importance that a well behaved pooch is one that is happy. I would love to give your pooch the exercise and care that they deserve. Life is about adventure, and it is way more fun with a dog!

I just moved to town from New York with my 7 year old shepherd mix and love working with pets. I’ve been working with dogs for over 20 years and I love doing it. I’m very responsible, hard working and get along with all breeds and sizes. My hours are flexible and I love each dog as if it were my own. I rescued my dog at 4 months and trained him myself. It was the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and gave me even more of a love for working with dogs. Happy to walk your dog for relief or exercise. I love to dog sit if you’re traveling or just need someone for a night. Happy to do meet and greets. Please consider me for your pets care.
