I cannot explain how grateful we are of Rene! We've never used this service before and she was so amazing! Our meet and greet went well, then we took our trip.

When Rene watches your pet

I enjoy time with all animals and will cater to your pets' needs and activities. We can play, roughhouse, practice training, go for walks or just relax. I have no breed or size apprehension, I enjoy large dogs, pitties, etc. I am also good with multiple pets, have experience with my own pack of five as well as cats and other pets.
