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 an absolute animal whisperer. Our typically shy kitties were in love with her from the first moment. We felt so comfortable with Dawn in our home and looking after our babies. She was diligent, went above and beyond with videos and photos, took such good care to check in and communicate, and left everything as it was found. Really appreciated the effort and care that went into Dawn’s home visits. We absolutely will certainly continue working with Dawn.
I had Dawn look after my rescue cat while I took a short trip. Communication was fantastic and my girl really took to her which made it easier for me to be away. She sent updates daily and lots of videos, and she even documented her feeding. I have already booked her for my next trip!
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.
