GET TO KNOW YOUR DOG WALKER
Thank you for considering my business to care for your pet. I understand how important your pet is to you and that it is hard to trust just anyone. That is why I think it is important for you to know a little bit about me and how I came to start Spoiled Pawz.
I grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I have always loved animals. Growing up we always had a dog, along with a variety of "little critters". After receiving my Associates degree, I moved to Maryland to attend Hood College, in Frederick Maryland. After graduating I had worked a series of "mediocre" jobs, but nothing rewarding. One day while talking to my mother on the phone about wanting to find a job that was rewarding, exciting and that I could look forward to doing, she suggested dog walking/pet care. I scoffed at the idea, thinking how can you make money walking a dog or doing pet care, but remembered that I enjoyed it when I did it while I was in high school and on breaks from college, helping family friends and neighbors so I figured I would give it a shot. But who would have thought that I would fall in love with my job and wake up with a smile on my face every morning being there for my clients pets?
Since I started Spoiled Pawz in 2008 it has been nothing but rewarding and a joy working with dogs and cats everyday! I really enjoy giving the peace of mind to each of my clients knowing that they can count on me to keep their pet happy and safe. I have also gained experience on so many levels with dogs and cats, from dogs who were just weaned from their mother to senior dogs living their "golden years".
On a personal side, I have worked with dogs on many levels who are in need of medical care or special needs care. Shadow, my Staffordshire terrier has severe anxiety, so I have to be always aware of his triggers to help him remain claim and have sense of "normalcy" in his life. With that being said, no task is too difficult for me. You can be reassured that no matter what your dog or cat's medical care or special needs care, Spoiled Pawz will be able to handle it with the same care and love as if you were there yourself. Since I started Spoiled Pawz I have become Bonded & Insured, Certified in Pet First Aide, CPR and Dog Obedience Training. Most Importantly let dogs be dogs and cats be cats!
