About the Company
NorthStar Dog Walking is a licensed and insured dog walking company servicing the immediate Jamaica Plain area. NorthStar's approach to service is of a different breed altogether. We provide a dog walking experience that goes beyond the physical act of walking a dog.
Dogs, like their human counterparts, need to establish connections with others in order to feel complete and balanced. An unbalanced dog tends to be destructive and difficult to manage; this negatively impacts the quality of life of the dog and his/her owners. NorthStar works hard to provide services that are lacking at other dog walking outfits. Rather than focus primarily on getting from one appointment to the next. We are absolutely committed to create an experience that transcends "just a walk", but a developed approach to happiness in the life of the dog, and the client that we serve.
About the Owner
Born and raised in Boston's Back Bay, I have been living in Jamaica Plain for three years. Graduated from Marist College in 2004 with a BA in Communications: Radio/TV/Film. Prior to dog walking, I worked in finance. After taking some time off, I decided to work as a dog walker for three years on Beacon Hill for Boston Pet Sitters, which was an absolutely amazing experience. Great company, incredible clients, wonderful dogs. I do miss it. Dog walking gave me a chance to find out what happiness means, a chance to get back to basics and go against the grain of corporate culture. After three years I started NorthStar on April 2nd, 2012 and could not be happier with the challenge, joy, and patience that comes with planting the seeds of a small business.
I am overjoyed to have started NorthStar this Spring - a chance to live and work in neighborhood and service the JP community with the same high level of trust, responsibility, and commitment to excellence that I brought to Beacon Hill. I am really excited to meet new people and spend my days outdoors with some great new furry friends.
