Dawn is one of our seasoned pet sitter and dog walker, having joined the team in May 2015. She specializes in our canine pals, but also has experience with rabbits, ferrets, birds & reptiles, but unfortunately, due to severe allergies, she tries to steer clear of feline clients.
Dawn has been a lifelong lover of dogs, having met her first dog at 3 days old, and chose her first canine friend at the age of 5, naming her Candy. She has a long history of volunteer work with shelters, rescues, and rescue transport services. Dawn has two Brittany Spaniels: Ecko and Raine, and two long-term fosters dogs, Frankie, an Argentine Dogo mix who was rescued from a local shelter, and Meeka, a bulldog mix who was rescued from a northern Illinois animal control.
Dawn is a professional Positive Reinforcement – Lure / Reward Pet Trainer, focusing on dogs with problematic behaviors and working with pet parents to develop behavior modification and management plans, and is dedicated to ensuring even the most difficult dogs can live a full and safe life with their families.
Raine often joins Dawn for training sessions, and is a great assistant with reactive dogs and their humans to learn more appropriate behavior. Dawn serves clients in Kenosha, Somers & Pleasant Prairie.
