I've loved animals my entire life. From the time I can remember, animals of every kind have always surrounded me. As a little girl, my rescue dog, Missy and I were absolutely inseparable. She was my best friend until she left for doggie heaven at the age of fourteen. More than twenty years ago, I said goodbye to corporate America. Because I love dogs so much, I decided to offer dog walking until I found a new profession. Five years later, I realized that as a dog walker, I was waking up happy and excited to go to work each day. I was feeling so fulfilled knowing—based on feedback from my clients—that I was truly making a difference in their lives. Although I originally believed that dog walking was a transition career, I have truly found my calling.
Over the years I've been a dog walker, I have consistently sought out the best and most up-to-date resources for learning in order to provide the highest quality of care for my clients. I've been privileged to learn from some of the world's best trainers, many of whom happen to live in our area.
I have devoted my life to doing all that I can to make this world a better place for all beings, especially for my furry clients and their families. Life IS good and gets better each day as I continue to thoroughly enjoy my life as a Seattle dog walker and puppy care provider.
