I’ve loved being around animals since I was a little kid.
Where I grew up in Georgia, I was the neighborhood pet-sitter and helped look after dogs of all sizes and personalities, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and a few reptiles. I also helped my grandpa with his cows and chickens on his farm, but I don’t think there’s too many of those in the District.
I worked briefly at Camp Bow Wow in Colorado – where they have daycare and overnight boarding for dogs. There I learned more about how to work with aggressive big dogs and look after little feisty small dogs.
Right now I’m living with my parents in Petworth (NW DC) and my 11-year-old Black Lab, Junior.
I take Junior to Rock Creek Park every week, where he plays in the creek and fetches tennis balls by the horse arena. We also walk around the monuments once in a while and has even gone canoeing with me where I work - Key Bridge Boathouse.
I’d love to have the opportunity to take care of your pet while you’re out of town!
