About Dawn

Hello!

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.

This is my first time hiring a Pawshake sitter for my cats and fish and I'm really glad I did. Dawn hit it off with my cats during the meet & greet. During our meeting I mentioned that she didn't need to worry about watering any plants, however while my husband and I were away it turned out to be hot and sunny outside so she proactively watered the veggies and flowers in the yard. She also sent several texts/videos/photos each visit which was greatly appreciated. Everything was clean and tidy and the cats were happy and relaxed when we came home. I knew right away when I read Dawn's bio and reviews that our pets would be in good hands with her. My cats each give her two paws up! (I think the fish were pretty happy with her service too.)
