We always had dogs and cats growing up in our home. From a Toy Poodle to a Great Dane and everything in between. As one could imagine, I learned early on how animals enrich our lives and vice versa. Years of consistency and devotion to my desire to love and understand animals is what has given me the greatest joy in life.
I began at the ripe age of 13 with a cat sitting job for a neighbor who had two cats. Who knew I was already doing what I was meant to do. Over the years, friends and family called upon me to care for their furry ones when away.
It took me awhile to take the plunge, but I finally decided to play, I mean work, with animals full time. I have dedicated my life to giving my clients the ultimate paradise haven for their furry family members.
Everyone gets a daily walk of 15-20 minutes each free!
Here we play nice. Leash manners, impulse control, prey drive and being quiet are just a few of the manners I encourage.
Who doesn't want to see how their pet is doing throughout the day?? Videos and photos sent regularly to ensure the most anxious parent.
Leave your pup with someone who will be there full time.
I start your boarding the time you drop off and only add a daycare charge when needed.
Those old faces still need TLC and a watchful eye to ensure their well being.
Monday thru Friday Only
For those who need a little play time or just want to see some of their best friends.
This is for those who work longer hours and need the full twelve hours.
Sometimes we unintentional teach our dogs some undesirable habits. Many don't know how to undo what has been learned. Or worse they condition themselves to live with the issues they don't like.
During a two week stay your dog goes back to the basics. Once they show they can and will curb their bad habits, I transfer the change to your home. A consultation and modifications are given to set the dog up for success.

Most common questions
I have been established in Charleston since 2013. The dogs I work with are great and most are veterans, which makes my work easy to maintain. There is not an exact number because it depends on the dogs. New dogs are slowly introduced to the PAWS team and soon become seasonal friends. And I don't take on new dogs the same day or holidays. This helps keep the serenity and sanity to my home.
I work 365 days a year and do not up charge for holidays. My fees are flat and consistent. I do not offer discounts either.
My life's focus has always been to follow my biggest interest, animals. My first dog is who really pushed me into this field. As she turned older, I wanted to be with her more to ensure her well being. Seeing the other options, public facilities, I learned quickly the lack of consistency, routine and discipline gave many dogs more neurosis issues. I wanted to offer something I was looking for inspired by my own furry family.
Small Non Profits Making a Big Difference
I love this organization because they see the importance of the benefits of animals for all. Homelessness is everywhere and suffer from all types of stigma from society. Having a roof over one's head is not the only way to maintain a bond with an animal. I understand many come from a place of good intentions, but love is stronger than materialistic things. And many become homeless for things out of their control. The Street Dog Coalition is here to help, not judge. Please visit their site for more info; https://www.thestreetdogcoalition.org.
This place is based in Romania and is family run. I love that their entire place is fully environmental green with solar panels and wind turbines. One woman's passion to combat strays has become a huge success for animals and humans.
