I’ve always loved animals. As a child I had every type of pet from fish to hamsters to parakeets. When I got my first dog Mickey (pictured below) I knew that I wanted to work with dogs. I spent two years in an apprenticeship learning how to train dogs while working at a kennel. I was taught to care for all dogs as if they are my own. After completing my training in 1997 I started Dog Day Afternoon dog walking service, training and boarding. 

 Keeping one simple idea in mind “caring for all dogs as if they are my own," today, we are still going strong.
