It would be hard for me to turn my dogs over to just anybody, even if it was only for a couple hours of hiking. I would need to have some sense of what this person was about – who are they, are they qualified, can I trust them? So, I’d like to give you a sense of who I am and what is important to me, and why I started this business. Through this introduction, it is my hope that you will feel confident your dog will be safe and in good hands while under my care.
Outside is my happy place. And if I have a dog or two at my side, that just makes things even better. I’m at home hiking a forest trail, sunshine and wind in my face, and rocks, dirt and pine needles under my boots. I’m equally happy out on cold, rainy, stormy, snowy days. (Weird, I know.) I love hiking 14’ers in the Colorado mountains, digging for crystals in Arkansas, and walking endless miles of shell-covered beaches in Sanibel, Florida. I’m more than a little bit of a rock nerd. I’ve never been afraid of taking on the unknown, and the bigger the challenge, the more I like it. I value character, integrity and honor, and hold dear my friendships. I can see humor in almost all situations, and I strive to always see the positive and to be enthusiastic and engaged in life.
