MEET OUR APEX DOG WALKING & PET SITTING TEAM

KAREN P.

Lead DOG WALKER & PET SITTER, East Apex

Karen lives in Apex and splits her time walking dogs in both our Apex and Raleigh territories.  A former customer service representative at a major airline, Karen knows how to take care of her dog clients AND their parents – providing peace of mind that they receive a good long walk on each visit!

Karen loves to perform and sings with the NC Master Chorale in her spare time.  In fact, her entire family is musical including her husband and two adolescent children.  When they are not on the stage, they can usually be found walking their neighborhood with their own dog, Ziggy (7 year old Labradoodle) or playing with their cat, Fizzy (9 year old rescue).

HEATHER C.

DOG WALKER & PET SITTER, APEX

Heather, a teacher for 16 years, has always been a people person and devoted dog lover. She is excited to join the Peak City Puppy team because she has a passion for animals and knows what it is like to have to spend a long work day away from her fur babies.  She will enjoy visiting her clients’ pets and giving them excellent care, just as she would her own. Heather currently has two rescue dogs: Mindy, a Great Dane mix and Coco, a Yorkie mix. Heather & Mindy are a registered therapy dog team and enjoy volunteering in schools, libraries, & retirement homes.

Heather enjoys family activities that include traveling, camping, swimming, playing tennis, and biking, as well as supporting her daughters in rock climbing and dance competitions. Coco loves riding in Heather’s bike basket wearing her pink “doggles.” Heather especially likes to include her dogs when she and her husband and two daughters explore new places, like parks, trails, restaurants, and beaches.

JILL F.

PET SITTER, APEX

Jill is originally from West Virginia but has lived in Apex since moving here in 2010.  She is an active volunteer at the SPCA of Wake County and regularly provides foster care to cats, kittens and nursing mothers with kittens.  Jill always had animals growing up (dogs as a young child and now cats).  Her current companions include Arthur & Merlin, both rescues.

While she hopes to one day own her own business as operator of a cat cafe or rescue, Jill is excited to care for all sorts of Peak City Puppy pets whenever she is not working at her full-time job in medical credentialing.

 

MANDY D.

PET SITTER, East Apex

Mandy has been a resident of Apex for 8 years, and considers herself very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful community.  She moved from California, with her husband and two daughters; one who is now a UNCW student, and the other attends Apex High School.

Growing up, her family bred Yorkshire Terriers, so she’s always had dogs around her, and can’t imagine not having a dog (or 2) to come home to every day.

Mandy also works at the News & Observer, in Raleigh, during the week.

She enjoys spending her free time outdoors, with her family and her 2 cockapoos, Uma and Tessa.  Having one dog who is completely blind, she’s understanding and patient with a dog who needs some extra guidance getting around.

Mandy is excited to have joined the Peak City Puppy team, and looks forward to making sure your pets have the care they need, with lots of attention!
