I founded Playful Paws in 2011 for private walks and private in-home training sessions.
I have worked with animals, especially with dogs for several years. I began as a dog grooming assistant, which I loved doing for just over 2 years. I moved on to work for a company as a dog walker. I did large group walks on a daily basis and office work for a couple years. Then I gained the confidence to start my own business. I believe in private walks as it helps to build a special bond with each dog and I can include training during private walks.
I socialize my dogs by taking them to the park or to various environments. I also do rides to vet or groomers, bathing and drying in the convenience of your own home and can come to your home for a training session either during the day or when you get home from work. I knew it was necessary to further my knowledge of dogs and the terminology and I am so grateful that I found ABC.
The Animal Behavior College taught me so much and I have already been able to use many skills I have learned and have seen a positive outcome on many of my clients.
I love each dog I work with as if it were my own. I believe in positive reinforcement and providing lots of love and nurturing towards each dog.
