Meet My Team:


Amy Jacobsen - Dog Walker

Amy’s love for dogs could be seen since she was 7 years old. Years later, once her father fell ill, she quit her job in the fashion district of NYC to be with her family. While her father underwent cancer treatment, she wanted a stress free job where she could have some fun. Then began her career in the pet care industry. Since 2005 she has worked in the areas of veterinary care, dog daycare, and dog training. She earned her certification as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer(CPDT-KA) in 2009 when she also started her own dog training business named Paws On Dog Training, LLC. Over the last decade she has been privileged to assist dogs and their owners with positive, real world training. She is thrilled to be a part of Heather’s Pet Care team and looks forward every day to walking all her four legged friends.
