I have extensive dog care and training experience fostering over 150 dogs through Puget Sound area no-kill shelters & pet rescues. I have also training under a highly respected pet dog trainer. I am an outgoing, creative and trustworthy person with an optimistic view on the world. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for animals and their welfare.
I look forward to meeting with you and caring for your 4-legged furry family member!
Thank you for your time and consideration,
