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.

My name is Janet, and I am so happy to be part of the BwB team!  I have a lifetime of experience being around animals, and understand how stressful it can be when life commitments separate you from your pet.  I am experienced in caring for pets with dietary restrictions, medical conditions, anxiety, and special needs.  My family and I raised or cared for a variety of dog breeds ranging from toy breeds, like Pomeranians, to large breeds, like Coonhounds, and even an Akita.

Hi there!  My name is Carey, and I have always had dogs and cats of my own from as far back as I can remember. Pets are an integral part of my family; my dogs and cats are my kids!! I have had all sorts of dogs from Gordon Setters, Border Collies, Hound dogs, Lab mixes and Rottweilers too! My husband and I recently adopted two cats…the cats certainly keep my husband & I on our toes as they are quite mischievous!!
I have been working in the animal profession for almost my entire career! I begin working at an animal hospital when I was a teenager and have remained at the same practice for over 25 years. I worked in almost every role from a vet assistant to a technician and now a manager. Taking care of pets is what I’ve always done and what makes my heart happy - I can’t imagine ever doing anything different! I’m so happy to be a part of the be BwB team and look forward to meeting you & your furry kids!

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.

Hi everyone! My name is Alison, and I am excited to meet you! I am a furbaby mama of two and a full-time student. My husband and I enjoy spending all our free time with our two crazy Dobermans, Remi and Ares. From hiking to boating to cuddling on the couch, we do everything with our babies. As a psychology student and dog owner, I truly believe in classical conditioning! Once your furbaby gets to know me, when they see my face and hear my voice they will know that happiness and fun are sure to come! I look forward to working with you and keeping your pups happy and active while staying safe!
