Cari currently has some openings for weekly walks, runs, and structured services. Contact us to sign up for services!

    What is your favorite thing about working with The Dog Shepherdess?

    "by far it's the personal touch that our services provide. There is an emphasis on relationship building and trust, to me that is the most important foundation for any business. Even more so when being trusted with people's homes and pets. I also love the attention and extra care that each dog is given, it really speaks to the culture of the company and its values." 

    What do you enjoy the most about working with dogs?

    "I find the most joy in forming a relationship of trust and learning from them. "

    What advise would you give owners who want to improve their relationship with their dogs?

     "I would say to be consistent and patient during training and to be mindful of what kind of energy we are giving off when working with our fur babies. They can pick up on frustration and stress like children do. " 

    What is your favorite park to walk or take dogs to in Nashville?

    "i haven't been able to explore all the parks just yet, but so far i love the green way! "

    What is your favorite dog breed?

    "i am naturally drawn towards large and somewhat powerful breeds, however I honestly do not have a “favorite”. I have formed special bonds with so many different breeds in my life and have learned in the process that every dog has a unique personality and I have loved them all equally. "

    What was the name of your first dog?
