Hi there! My name is Darren Burleson. Several years ago, I was
going on vacation and like many pet parents, carefully selected
a kennel to care for my family of Jack Russell Terriers. The kennel
I chose was recommended by a friend, and had a good reputation. Although I felt a bit uncomfortable as I laid their beds in a cement and chain link dog run and listened to the incessant barking of
the other dogs, I assumed they would quickly adjust to their new surroundings and be fine.
Now, I’m not saying all kennels are terrible — I know there are good ones and many people in the business who truely love and care for pets. But the best kennels tend to be very expensive — and still can’t provide the same comfort as pets staying in their own familiar surroundings with their routines uninterrupted. After 10 years in business I continue to hear how clients’ pets are relaxed and happy when they arrive home. That is the essence of The Pawfessionals!
As soon as I arrived home I went to pick up “the kids.” I found
them dirty, anxious, and hoarse from nonstop barking! In addition, one of them had scratches around her eyes and mouth that required veterinary attention. They all needed baths and then slept for two days. I decided then and there that my dogs would never go to a kennel again! I’d rather let my dogs stay at home where they’re safe and comfortable. And if I was willing to pay for that peace of mind, others would too. With that idea along with my life-long love of animals, The Pawfessionals Dog Walkers & Pet Sitters was born.
