Kelly


Born and raised in New York's Hudson Valley I grew up around animals; from my family dog, and cat, to my grandfather's goose, and my uncle's goats.
My first jobs were pet sitting for my moms co-workers;
which was way more fun than yard work!
I moved to Philadelphia in 2011, found a job dog walking as soon as I could, and I've been working with the pets of Philadelphia almost every day since. I am a certified Canine Body Language Interpreter, And have my Certification In pet CPR & First Aid. I graduated in 2015 as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer. In 2018 I finally was able to put down roots right in south Philly and put a daycare and dog hotel right under my own roof!

Grace

 

Grace was raised in south Jersey, has lived in Philly the past 12 years, and has been animal-obsessed the entire time! Her first chores growing up were taking care of her cats, and always has lived with-- and cared for-- a ton of animals, from dogs to chickens. She has volunteered in an animal shelter, and has been dog walking and pet sitting for about 3 years. She loves working with animals and is studying for certification in pet CPR and first aid. When she's not spending time with client pups you can find her spoiling her two cat babies Nugget and Noodle and her doggy roommates Sasha and Ruben, volunteering for activist issues, or recording her podcast!
