DEV, Small Dog Care Specialist

“I can’t believe i actually get paid to do this!” says Dev. She has 5 dogs!! (Yup, that should tell you something, huh?) She’s always had a special bond with dogs & prefers hanging’ out with the pooches. Dev’s mission is to give dogs the love they need and deserve when the owners aren’t home.

After a serious back injury, Dev was forced to retire as a personal trainer & aerobics instructor.  Walking was the only exercise that improved her back. She combined her passion for dogs and created a dog biz! Dev knows the importance of exercise for both physical strength and mental stimulation for a well-rounded happy pet. It’s not just a walk with a dog, it’s a walk with a friend. She’ll talk, walk, and give lots of TLC. She WON’T be texting or listening to music- just 100% focused!


JAY, Big Dog Specialist

JAY, a marathon and triathlete will take your dogs (all sizes) for a run or sprint on the 606 or trail. 


Jay- Available for Dog Runs (ALL SIZE DOGS)

Big dogs naturally gravitate towards Jay. He grew up with big dogs and just loves to play, throw the ball, and go on runs. In his free time, Jay loves to run, he’s completed marathons and triathlons.

WHY DO WE DO THIS FOR A LIVING?    It’s simple – WE LOVE ANIMALS! (maybe too much)

We love the outdoors as much as the dogs. And no offense owners, but we prefer spending the day with the furry friends not the humans! There’s nothing like the unconditional love you give and get from dogs….nothing. IHAVE5DOGS is all about having fun, being positive, and giving your loved ones a better quality of life. They will be treated like our very own and soon we will fall in love with each and every one of them. They will be safe and feel secure in our arms.

We look forward to everlasting friendships!

We are open 365 days a year come rain or come shine!
