    Holly is one of the best people I know with dogs. Gentle. Caring. My dog (Hilde) is always excited to see her and give her kisses. She is always on time. Always gives plenty of advance warning of scheduling issues. I would not let anyone else take care of my baby.

  • Nora Kelley

    Holly is extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior uses positive training techniques. She is highly dedicated, responsible, and cares deeply about her canine clients. She is also very accommodating, flexible, and easy to work with.

    Holly has been walking Kohl over 7 years now. He's a bit high strung, as German Shepards can be, but he loves seeing her.

  • Kenneth Marty

    When it comes to dogs and their personalities, Holly is one of the most knowledgeable people I've met. She is fantastic. Your dog will bond with her instantly.
