Dog Fam

Get to know me 

Big or small, I love them all!

After 21 years in sales and retail management, I’ve been lucky enough to reevaluate my career. I thought about what makes me passionate and happy and the first thing that came to my mind was caring for dogs! I’m excited to become your go-to sitter and walker.


I’m studying to become a certified dog trainer and I’m a seasoned dog sitter/walker. One of my first jobs was walking a pair of Dobermans for a neighbor in high school, which I did for 4 years until I moved to Baltimore. I even watched an ex girlfriend’s Great Dane for a week! I’m the one my neighbors and friends ask to watch their dogs while they’re away. I understand that communication is very important especially when you are away from your pet! I know I like to see my boys, Jim and Glenn, while I am on vacation.


Along with my experience sitting and walking dogs, I am currently studying to become a certified dog trainer. There’s only one nationally accredited certification program by Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. There are two parts to the certification and I am currently working on part one prerequisites for the Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessment. I’m really excited to learn more about your dog–and you of course!

My Dogs & My House


My dogs Jim and Glenn love when new dogs join the Dog Fam. Jim is an 85-pound Rottweiler/Hound mix and Glenn is a 100-pound American Bulldog/Hound mix. Jim is friendly with all adults, children, and dog breeds. He wants to play and is very affectionate. He’s food driven and not aggressive during meals. As for Glenn, he’s just the same but a tad more submissive. Glenn usually just says hi and wants to move on to the next human or dog.


As for my house, dogs are allowed on the bed, on the furniture, and basically anywhere else–as long as it’s cool with you. I don’t want to start anything!



While I have a small, fenced in backyard, I never use it! I live in Locust Point, which is great because I have three parks close by to walk around. Ft. McHenry is about a half a mile away and I try to go there daily as long as the park is open. I’m right across the street from Latrobe Park, which includes a fenced in dog park. I, personally, don’t visit the dog park a lot only because I enjoy walking my boys so much. Riverside Park is about a mile away and has a great loop for walking. We enjoy searching for squirrels, checking peamail and meeting other people and dogs on our treks.



I have plenty of toys to play with: ropes, tennis balls, lacrosse balls, kong balls, rubber bones, rubber frisbees, antlers (my boys LOVE these!) and too many chew toys to name. Your dog will be allowed to jump on the couch— if you’re cool with it of course (I don’t want to start anything…) to cuddle with me and the boys. If that doesn’t fancy them I have four large dog beds your pup can relax on.
