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 live 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.

Very reliable and able to take care of my pets last minute. Dawn saved the day! My cats loved her and I loved the care she gave them. Dawn is excellent at communicating. Highly recommend. She will be my go-to pet sitter for the rest of my stay in Calgary.

All of us, my husband, myself and especially Tosca the cat, were very pleased with Dawn's caring this past weekend.

Our regular cat sitter was on vacation and I went through Pawshake's profiles to find a cat sitter who would make me feel comfortable leaving Tosca alone for four days.

Since the first meeting with Dawn, I knew I had the luck of choosing well.

She is a truly animal lover. She knows a lot of dogs and cats.

During our vacation, Dawn sent us many photos and videos of her two daily visits at Tosca's. Our cat seemed very happy and pampered.

It's very easy to communicate with Dawn and she is a very conscientious carer. Upon our return, we found a little card from Dawn, thanking us for trusting her to care for our furry baby.

I highly recommend her and hope my friends who have dogs will contact her for dog walks/sits.

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.
