“Your dog's safety and happiness is my priority.”

As a dog owner myself, I know what it means to entrust the care of your dog to another. This is why I pride myself on safety, reliability, and following your instructions. I have over 10 years of experience as a dog walker and sitter, working with many breeds and temperaments. I have experience with large dogs, excessive pulling, and highly reactive dogs. I am an outdoor lover and runner- if your dog has a ton of energy, I'll be happy to go the extra mile for them and provide a jog upon request.

A small community in Thurston County, Rochester is a fantastic area to visit with your furry pal by your side. Home to a great dog friendly restaurant, and a few amazing parks that you and Fido can visit, you both will be having a great time hanging out in Rochester.
