Ahanu was sincere and professional. My wife and I instantly trusted them with our excessively affectionate, energetic Aussie/Pit, Brigid. We appreciated their patience and diligence on walks and felt that they were exceptionally thorough, timely, communicative, and reliable. It is apparent to us that Ahanu is incredibly caring and strives for excellence. Outstanding service!

Ahanu cared for my dog, Gunner, while we lived in D.C., and was incredibly loving and reliable. They truly have a gift with animals. Gunner has separation anxiety, some aggression/resource guarding issues, and went blind during the year that Ahanu cared for him. Ahanu handled all of this with the utmost love and care. Gunner can be a difficult client, but loved and trusted Ahanu from the very start, as did I. They ...

With me, your pet will be carefree

I've taken care of animals all my life. I don't remember a time where I haven't been responsible for at least one animal. Growing up, my family was a family of animal lovers. We were always taking in strays and finding them new loving homes, if we had too many at the time. Most of my experience revolves around taking care of puppies, dogs, kittens, and cats. Though I've also cared for rabbits, ferrets, snakes ...

What Ahanu would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences.
I like to know if there are any behavior quirks such as does the dog not like other dogs, is there a spot in the house that I shouldn't attempt to move them from or they'll get mad. Things of that nature. Also is there a feeding schedule, certain things I should or shouldn't allow. This is along with many of the other questions I'll ask before being left with the animal alone.

I always like to make sure a little play time is thrown in if the owner is ok with it. If there are trails near by, those are my favorite to walk through to give the pet a clean surrounding and fresh new scents. I like to do any activities that the pet loves. For instance, if a pup loves fetch, then so do I.
