I’ve grown up around dogs and want to help out responsible pet owners when at work or away. I will provide on leash walks or runs when necessary and give it a fun break during the day. The dogs I have cared for have ranged from small to large with varying energy levels. I have cared for senior dogs that require oral medications and those recovering from surgeries. I will be home full-time with a wide open schedule to help you out with pet care. Together we can give your dog it’s best life!

I'm a recent UC Davis grad (B.S., Animal Biology) with nothing but time on my hands to help you to look after your fur babies. I’ve had a canine best friend since I was a toddler and have been fascinated with animals ever since. I am not species-bias and have experience working with / handling pigs, rodents, cats, birds, reptiles and, of course, dogs. Needless to say, I’m comfortable playing with, walking, and babysitting small and large dogs alike. The handsome man that you see in my profile pic (Cash - like Johnny Cash) is a rescue. When I first adopted him, he had separation anxiety, behavioral problems and digestive issues. I stuck by his side through all of it because I love him and made a commitment to provide him with lifelong care on the day I signed the paperwork and took him home. Rest assured that I’ll be empathetic and understanding in looking after your best friend!

Hi! For starters, I love being around dogs, always have and always will! I can't afford to have my own big slobbery fur baby right now, so this would help my puppy fever! I'm very outgoing and I love going on walks so why not make it more enjoyable with your furry friend, that way they're getting the exercise and you get the after walk snuggles! I just moved to the La Conner area but am willing to branch out towards Mount Vernon/ Burlington area.

“Nothings stronger than a bond with a dog”

I have had many years of professional and personal experience working with dogs! In my lifetime I have walked about 300 dogs and every single dog has its little quirks and I love seeing how spunky and how amazing every dog is in its own way. My dog is my world, and I treat every dog like they’re someone’s life and death, so I do everything in my power to keep them as safe and happy as I can!
