Angela loves to be in nature and go on long walks with her dog, Oki. Angela’s journey is guided by her unwavering dedication, patience, and love to providing quality care and services. With 14 years of experience as a public school special education teacher, Angela made a bold move in 2015 to leave teaching and follow her lifelong passion of working with animals.
She holds a dog training certification earned in 2017 and specializes in helping reactive and fearful animals gain confidence and learn new skills. Whether it’s a two-legged child or a four-legged child, she finds immense joy in being a part of and witnessing their growth.
In addition to managing the business alongside her amazing Management team, Angela remains a very hands-on owner. She actively provides visits and participates in shadow visits, providing guidance and support to team members, ensuring they uphold her commitment to quality care. She understands that running a successful pet care business is not a job; it’s a lifestyle and she loves every second of it!
The Management Team
As a Manager of Pawsitive Dawg Walking and Pet Sitting, we lead a dedicated team of professional pet care providers committed to delivering exceptional care for companion animals. Our focus extends beyond pet care.

The Pet Care Team
As an employee of Pawsitive Dawg Walking and Pet Sitting, we are a part of a carefully selected team that provides extraordinary care for companion animals when their owners cannot.
We went through a very thorough interview process and intensive training program for at least 2 weeks before we provided any services on our own. Our learning never ends and we continually shadow other team members as well as participate in on-going professional development opportunities to learn new skills and build our overall knowledge of the best practices in animal care.
We are Professional Pet Care Providers that people can trust to treat their furry loved ones as one of our own. We strive to provide exceptional service, prioritize fear-free practices, and foster the physical, social, and mental well-being of our furry friends.
