dog walker + pet sitter emphasizing adventure and behavior training
Many dog walkers and pet sitters don't know proper leash skills or door etiquette, often punishing animals for conditioned behaviors, which is counterproductive to forming good habits.

I grew up with rescued dogs and cats and have taken care of animals since a young age. I have both long- and short-term dog sitting experience and have fostered pets recovering from illness + injury and those in need of socializing. I used to volunteer at the Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA.
I give both young, energetic and sweet elderly dogs the unique care they need. If your pup needs to get energy out, I'll take him on a long hike or run, or we'll play fetch in the park. If your pooch is a bit slower and just needs to stretch her legs in the yard, that's fine, too.
I thoroughly enjoy being able to meet the amazing pets in my community. I can't wait to give your furry family members some love, attention, and tailored lessons while you're away.
