IMG00020-20110217-0840I found Chris O’Connor through Barbara Long of “Paw In Hand Dog Training.” I had been having a hard time finding a reliable dog walker as my weekly needs are minimal, but that one time per week is caring for three high energy dogs. Chris spent an hour with us on our meet and greet, getting to know Sammy, Zoe and Liam and our needs. They took to her immediately and since then, she has proven herself to be kind, consistent and thorough. I highly recommend Chris to anyone needing a bit of help in caring for their beloved pets. –Penelope & Sammy, Liam and Zoe


IMG_7658I first met Chris at puppy kindergarten where she was our teacher. Her gentle positive nature made her an excellent role model for me and my new puppy. Chris has helped us in so many ways, no question was ever left unanswered. She gave up her time before class and after class to help us with problems ranging from dietary issues, naughty behavior, obedience, you name it, she had an approach for us to try. In short, I would highly recommend Chris O’Connor to anyone needing help with their dog. Maggie and I are forever grateful to her for starting us out on the right foot and keeping us there. -Mary Lee & Maggie
