Hi, my name is Kelly. I’m a junior in college earning a bachelors of psychology. I’ve had a passion for animals my entire life, specifically dogs. Over the years i’ve become proficient in my understand of dog behavior, health, handling & training. I always apply those skills in relation to specific breeds/dogs as they all have different needs. I currently have a 12yo Maltese and a 4mo old Chihuahua. They are family to me and i’d be grateful for the opportunity to care for your dogs the same!

Hi there! I’m a huge animal lover. I volunteer for a local rescue group, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, where I have fostered puppies, helped w/ “in-take" events, and even adopted a few fur babies myself including my pup/best-friend, Roo. I've walked dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds and can be flexible. I have lots of patience and understand some dogs need time to warm up to or gain trust in someone new. I have lots of love to give and understand your puppy's safety and happiness is a top priority!
