About Me

Hi I’m Deborah Hayes, owner of Your Dog On A Walk Pet Sitting and Dog Walking and I want to be your pet’s best friend.

My love for animals started when I was very young and has never wavered. Much to my mother’s surprise when I reached the age for driving and dating instead of bringing suitors home more often than not I  showed up with skinny homeless strays begging to keep them.

Over the years I have owned, loved, rescued and found loving homes for dogs, cats, horses, bunnies, birds, mice and even a couple of rats. (BTW -Rats  are amazingly sweet and intelligent). I can’t ever remember my home without a few furry family members.  Now that I am in a position to do what I want, I can’t think of a more rewarding way to spend my time than making a dog’s tail wag or a cat purr.

I will provide tender and thoughtful care for ALL the pet members of your family! I know how important they are to you and my goal is to ensure their comfort and needs are met when you can’t.

Whether you’re on vacation, tied up at work or just feel you could use a couple of extra hands, (AND FEET), I can help!

Your pet is special and so are his or her needs. Each visit is customized so our time together can be as much like normal and as rewarding as possible.

Services I provide include pet sitting, dog walking, poop scooping, litter box cleanup and overnight stays. All overnight stays include complimentary mail and newspaper retrieval, plant watering and more.

I am an avid animal lover and consider myself lucky to be able to spend my time making them happy. When you need assistance for your treasured companion call Your Dog On A Walk for a free consultation.

I want to be your pet’s best friend,

 your favorite alternative to kenneling your pets when you can’t take them with you and

the perfect solution for the long lonely days at home when you are not.

You see, this isn’t just my job, it’s my pleasure!

I look forward to hearing from you…
