--Do you want a dog walker / expert adviser who has experience with stressful and sensitive incidents such as:

  • When I had to break into a client's house because they left me the wrong key and were on a plane to California and the dogs were in crates inside?  I have the experience
  •  When I showed up to a dog who at 5 buds of marijuana before I got there and I needed to take care of the dog and get it to two different vet hospitals?  Yup, that really happened.  I have the experience.
  • Showing up to a walk two dogs who had gotten into a bottle of Aleve and carefully counting the remaining pills while on the phone with the client and handling the situation.  I have the experience.
  • When I look out for hazards in the road or wild animals that your dog will want to chase, instead of having my face buried in my phone while texting.  I have the experience.
  • When leashes break, when it's raining or when I show up and need to re-dress a wound whose bandage had come un-done.  I have the experience.
  • Knowing what to do when it's below Zero outside and your dog needs to relieve itself.  Or making triple-sure that doors are shut and locked securely when I leave.  I have the experience.
  • When off-leash neighborhood dogs approach me and my client's dog while on leash...Ok, this one was small, but many others have been bigger.  And even though he may be "nice", this situation almost always causes a commotion in the road between the two dogs with cars speeding by...I've handled a ton of these.  I have the experience.

   ...I provide peace of mind that I can handle these types of situations, and can advise you to handle them yourself, that can happen from time to time to anyone!
