We are a young, professional couple in the Wasena neighborhood of Roanoke who LOVE dogs... and animals in general.
Just a little about me: I am a clinical social work resident specialized in mental health. I am passionate about bridging the gap between animals and people, providing a therapeutic relationship between them. This is partly how I got involved in DogVacay - not only does it help pay the bills, it allows me to learn the behaviors of dogs with all different temperaments, personalities, and quirks.
My significant other/partner in crime, Adam, is a medical student at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine. He also has a passion for animals but has to admit that his favorites to work with are Aussies and Labs (particularly yellow ones who remind him of his dog growing up). He loves taking dogs for runs or to the dog park, and is a GREAT frisbee thrower.
We mostly dog-sit on weekends, but are available on weekdays for check-ins or walks. If you have a special case, or any questions at all, don't hesitate to send me a message :)
