I am American (from Boston) and have lived in Sydney for the past 20 years with my wife, daughter and of course dogs! After spending most of my career in the corporate world of executive search, I decided to make a change which would allow me to follow one of my greatest passions – animals.
Having grown up with dogs (I currently have two, a Labrador and an Alaskan Malamute), I understand the pleasure and comfort that dogs bring to people and how important they can be. After working in the busy corporate world and seeing firsthand how busy parents are with kids in school, I know what it means to be “time poor” and how, unfortunately, the family member who often misses out is the beloved dog.
This is why I decided to start a Professional Dog Walking & Pet Care business; I wanted to help other dog owners ensure that, on a regular basis, their dog gets the exercise and socialisation it needs to be happy and healthy.
I continuously receive feedback from clients that they are so relieved to come home to a relaxed dog after it has had its daily exercise; they don’t need to try and fit in the dog walk while having to cook dinner, help with homework, etc.
Why is my job so rewarding? Firstly I get to participate in daily adventures with fabulous dogs of all shapes and sizes. Also, caring for the treasured pets of my clients allows me the opportunity to add real value to people’s lives and the community.
