Co-owner

My husband, Alton, and I were inspired by our lovable rescue, King, to ensure other pet owners could have the same confidence we look for when it comes to pet care providers. From birth, there has always been a dog in the house, so the connection is just organic. Even though I am a part-time dog walker, I am certainly a full-time dog lover. In addition to meeting wonderful dogs, one of my favorite parts about this job, is the amazing people it has led me to meet. When I'm not spoiling your furbaby, I enjoy traveling and spending time with loved ones.

Hello! I am a pet owner and animal lover. I have always had pets growing up as a child, and there has always been a special place in my heart for animals. I just love taking care of them! We currently have a golden retriever/ German shepherd mix that we rescued from New Mexico. I enjoy meeting different kinds of animals and getting to know their personalities.

Welcome, I’m Lorraine. I’m here to serve you and your sweet fur babies. My two, Arïes and Pretti, have opened my eyes to an adventure and love of a lifetime in just a few short years. With the seriousness that comes with being an analyst, I enjoy having fun and experiencing this world from a new perspective. I’m committed to creating a safe environment that works best for your pup. Here’s to leashed exploration! Outside of walking, I enjoy dancing, the ocean and rich relationships.

Walker, Sitter, & Groomer | Virginia Beach

Hi, Blake here! I am a Texas-born, Virginia-raised, animal enthusiast. I have always shared my life with a dog by my side. It was only recently that I became a mom to a rescued leopard gecko, bearded dragon and, dare I say, two kittens that bring me joy. I didn’t think I would have after losing my English bulldog, Minnie. So now, because dogs just make life better, I spend my days providing them with the best care possible and ensuring your pups look their best. I look forward to meeting you and for the chance to pamper your pups.

After buying our first puppy together (King), Akira and I met a lot of our friends at dog parks and puppy play dates. During this time, we would assist friends with dog sitting and walking. That's when the love and passion grew, taking care of other people's dogs and showering them with love. I have always had a passion for dogs and grew up with them as a child. I love working with different breeds and getting to know each one and learning more about them- “it’s like making a new friend with four paws!” I hope to ensure that every pet is left healthy and happy, so their owner doesn’t have to worry. They can know that their pet is being cared for when they are gone. Other than working with dogs, I have a strong interest in weightlifting and spending time with family.

I’m excited to join the BwtB team and am looking forward to meeting and caring for some new furry friends! We currently have 2 rescue dogs that are an integral part of our family.  I’ve grown up with dogs and have always appreciated how they add so much love and joy to any home. Joining this team is a great fit for me because with my afterschool tutoring business I have time midday to devote to walking and playing with your pups. Can’t wait to meet them!

Hello. My name is Melissa. I have been a pet sitter/dog walker for over 6 years now. All of my life I grew up with dogs, cats, and fish or turtle here and there. I enjoy helping take care of families' fur babies when they need to be away. I have helped take care of cats, dogs, guinea pigs, fish, and even a chicken and raccoons. I am also involved with animal rescue. I help local rescues bottle feed newborn kittens, foster them, and help them find their forever homes. I look forward meeting new families and their furbabies.
