MENNELL ALKHAWAJA

MENNELL ALKHAWAJA

Dog Walker

My name is Mennell and I have been working with a wide variety of animals my entire life. At a young age I took it upon myself to start my own dog walking business in my neighborhood as well as volunteer at 2 different shelters in my county. At one of which I adopted my childhood best friend and pup, Randy, whom I spent hours with daily, training. He was abused prior to my ownership so it was my first real task of rehabilitation at a very young age. I moved to LA about 7 years ago and have assisted many friends and neighbors with training their dogs.

SARAH RIVAS

SARAH RIVAS

Dog Walker

Sarah has a compassionate nature and a calm disposition which makes her a perfect fit for My Dog Spot. She has a great relationship with many of our senior dogs and has a way of allowing our more timid dogs come out of their shell and enjoy what it is like to be rambunctious and playful. Thanks, Sarah.

KATHY DIAZ

KATHY DIAZ

Dog Walker

Hi, I’m Kathy! I have always loved animals, having grown up with them all my life. I admit that I am addicted to all the animal rescue and vet shows on TV. I am also a regular contributor to regional and national animal rescue groups. I am the proud mom of Lucy, a Chug (a Chihuahua-pug mix) and a cat, Dulce. I think that all of the dogs I walk are the cutest things ever, and I couldn’t be happier than when they pee and poop. In addition to dog walking, I am also a freelance writer and long-time host of an Afro-Cuban music/salsa show on public radio.

SAVANNAH SCILLEY

SAVANNAH SCILLEY

Dog Walker

Hi my name is Savannah Scilley, I was born in Dallas Texas and moved here with my family. I’ve grown up all my life around dogs. I volunteered for 2 1/2 years at a shelter in Santa Barbara during college and really learned how to handle and train dogs. I started out as a C class trainer but after a year I made it to A class, which dealt with dogs that were a little harder to handle and needed special attention. I love animals and respect them. I understand they have emotions and each have a different personality. I love spending time with them.

KELSEY NELSON

KELSEY NELSON

Dog Walker

My name is Kelsey Nelson and I am a HUGE animal lover! I have had dogs and cats my whole life and they bring me so much joy. I have also taken special classes at the Pasadena Humane Society to train and care for special needs dogs and am very comfortable with handling and caring for all types of dogs, big or small. I have been training dogs since I was a young person, learning dog’s body language, positive reinforcement training techniques and how all dogs are very unique in their own personality and abilities.

I have been walking dogs and dog-sitting for many, many years for many different dogs and owners, caring for the dogs in the manner that the owners want me to care for them as well as treating them as if they were my own pet. I think pets become members of our families and deserve the utmost care and individualized treatment. I hope to build a great relationship with you and your dog in the future!

I have extensive experience with both dogs and cats, and I also have a very soft spot for farm animals.

It is an honor to look after animals, and I look forward to taking care of yours.
