About Isabel

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Isabel :) nice to "e meet you"

I was the Mother of two dogs, my boxers Max and Mayo. They were litter mates and truly the greatest loves of my life. I raised them since they were 9 weeks old. They taught me so much and because of them I fell in love with animals. Unfortunately they both passed away at age 9 from heart failure. I cared for them for 7 months while they were sick and don't have any regrets as I did everything in my power to save them. So if you happen to have a senior dog or a dog with special needs, medications etc.. I have plenty of experience and don't shy away from this.

Since my babies passed I started my own company, which I dedicate to them/ honor them by donating a portion of all sales to the ASPCA on a monthly basis.This is how they will live on forever.


Now with a small business to run, I don't have the time that is required to have a dog of my own. I am looking for extra income to support me while I get my company off the ground and this just seems like the best of both worlds. I get to spend time with animals, get outside and take a breather with them and get some bonding time, love and kisses (hopefully kisses).

I miss those special moments and would love the opportunity to share them with your pet. Having my own business, customer service is my top priority both for you and your pet. Happy pets make the best pets!

I am also a Level I Reiki practitioner and can offer those services to you and your pet if you like.

What a typical day would look like:
Leisurely walks would consist of walking the dog/dogs ( two max ) around their neighborhood, where they are familiar with their surroundings. If owner approves, I would love to take them to a near by public park, beach or dog park for a change in surroundings and a nice view.
If going to the park, we can walk around for a while and then depending on how tired they may or may not be, we can just sit and bond while we watch the world go by! Turns of love and cuddles and some play time.

Active walks can consist of light jogging or running. We can also go for brisk walks again in and around their neighborhood or at a near by public park, beach or dog park. We would play fetch and games and finally sit down and rest for a bit, bonding and cuddling.
I would prefer to walk one dog (solo) so as to dedicate 100% of my time to them. During all walks I would bring poop bags for pick ups, cell phone in case of emergency and a bottle of water to make sure they stay hydrated.
I am not a fan of off leash walking so I would make sure to keep the leash on at all times until play time. #Safetyfirst.

If staying at my home, I have a a dog friendly park right in front of my building and on the River. This would be a great place to spend the day with them, possibly a picnic with plenty of treats. I also have a huge balcony where he or she can lay out and catch some sun while taking in the city views and light ocean breeze.

The take home message here is that I will be not only providing a service to you and your pet but also friendship, companionship, bonding and lots of fun and love.


I look forward to hearing from you!
