Note From The Owner

I grew up surrounded by pets, from Chinchillas to Horses. Honestly, I wouldn't want to do anything else, my whole life, I searched for the perfect career, and it was right here the entire time. I moved to Alexandria with my Great Dane Duke and cat Cambria. In January 2020, I added two new additions to my fur family: Hera, my Goldendoodle, and Athos, my Great Dane!

When I started Off Collar, I wanted to make sure I built a forward-thinking brand. The first focus has always been the relationship between the pets and the sitters, walkers, or trainers. From the beginning I wanted making sure we have been experts in this field. I have always made sure to hire people who are more than pet lovers. It hasn't always been easy, but I am so happy that I have built a business in an industry I adore. I am incredibly proud to be a pet care professional and certified as a Dog Behavior Modification Trainer focusing on Positive reinforcement methods. I am so grateful for the people I have met, the animals we take care of, and my staff.

Whether it's walking your dog, feeding your cat, taking care of your pet while you're away, or training your pup, Off Collar always provides a nurturing and safe environment.
