“Dependable dog lover that goes above and beyond!”

Thank you for considering me to take care of your pup! I grew up with dogs skilled in obedience and agility, so I recognize the importance of physical and mental activity. I will make sure that your dog receives both, as well as lots of love! When I'm not walking dogs, I work for the medical center and love to do volunteer work.

I’m an opera singer who loves animals and taking a break from practicing to spend time with them. Being outdoors and taking walks is a favorite past time for me, and a great way to get exercise and practice self care. I’d love to help take care of your dog and add a little joy to their day!
