About Dede

Dede Harris

My love of dogs began while growing up with Boxers and Dachshunds.  My love of small dogs began with my first Scottie, Harrie.  He was a memorable part of my life, which included camping trips to the Grand Canyon, the high Sierras, the California Coast and all over Washington state.  During this time, I studied trick training for dogs and emceed a trick performance event at the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show at the Seattle Center.

I started caring for pets about 10 years ago as friends kept asking me to take their dogs while they traveled.  The word spread and the business began.  I love all dogs, but my focus is caring for small dogs.

Over the years I took every opportunity to learn more about dog care and training.  I am certified with the Red Cross in Animal First Aid and took additional first aid training through the Marymoor Professional Dog Walker’s Association.

I am a current member of the Magnuson Professional Dog Walkers as well as the MPDWA (Marymoor Professional Dog Walker’s Association).  Additionally, I have been doing volunteer work for S.O.D.A. (Serve Our Dogs Area) for 10 years.


I look forward to meeting you.
