Colleen Spinar, Founder and Top Dog

I was born and raised with a love for animals of all shapes and sizes–fur, feathers, and scales. Since elementary school, I dreamed of working with animals, and then I worked my way through college as a veterinary assistant. I volunteered in an animal shelter in middle school before I was old enough to work.

I have obedience trained dogs all my life as well as trained a therapy dog and two service dogs. I currently have a seizure alert dog that I personally trained for my daughter who is severely disabled with Rett Syndrome. I have been pet sitting for and giving training advice to friends most of my adult life, so establishing my own business was a normal transition after a career as an elementary teacher and then a stay-at-home mom.

In addition to my extensive ability to train, I have accreditation in pet sitting and dog training, as well as animal CPR and first aid, so you can rest assured your pet is in great hands.
