My name is Dawn. I am an avid animal lover and have been training and caring for animals for over 40 years. I would love to have my own dog...but I also love to travel...so walking and caring for your pets is the best of both worlds! I am flexible, reliable and work very hard with my existing clients on their training reinforcement, or any issues they may have. I believe in working with the owners as well as their pets to give the animals in your life the very best “consistent” care.
My philosophy when working with all species is to always treat animals with calmness, respect and love. I have many repeat customers..and can easily fit in last minute walk‘s because “life happens”.
I spend a month every year in Mexico spending time with animal rescues there. Mexico has always felt like “home” to me. I am a foodie and spent 16 years in the wine business...I have lived all over the world... and definitely have the travel bug.
My other love in my Life is my two-year-old Sphynx cat “Groot”... He travels with me onboard when I go away. He loves all dogs... and invites them into our home without any issues. He is also toilet trained...so no litter. He is a sweet personable little guy.
Dawn is such a treasure. I was so anxious leaving the cats and felt guilty but seeing her with them and getting all her updates with videos, I can see how happy they are when she’s around. They are clearly super comfortable with her and enjoy her visits immensely. I have been able to enjoy our time away and relax knowing she’s been there to care for them. Her warmth and sense of humour and kindness are so evident in her approach with us and the cats. Thank you Dawn for everything
This was our fourth time having Dawn take care of our 2 kitties, and I can't even begin to say enough good things about her! She is always our first choice to take care of our pets when we go away, because she is the best!
Our two cats absolutely adore her. She not only takes excellent care of their needs, she also goes above and beyond to shower them with attention and affection.
She is kind, trustworthy, reliable, and an excellent communicator, with regular updates and check-ins. We look forward to using her services again and again!
I previously owned 3 French Bulldogs and 2 Mastiffs. They were all perfectly trained, sociable and loveable characters. I love working with dogs and helping them become a calm, obedient part of your pack.
