Hi, I'm Elynn, the Owner and Top Dog of Dallas and Pals. Unfortunately, I lost the namesake of Dallas and Pals to cancer at age 11 but he lives on in my heart and business.
I am currently owned by a Chinook named Kila.
As far back as I can remember I have always loved animals. Growing up I was the neighborhood pet sitter.
I am currently President of Dogs Of Grandview Supporters (DOGS) the non-profit organization that stewards Grandview Off-Leash Dog Park. In the past I volunteered for S.O.D.A., the group that formerly stewarded Grandview Off-Leash Dog Park, and I volunteered as President of Kent Dog Owners Group and Supporters (KDOGS), an off-leash dog park advocacy group. All of these activities have given me the opportunity to work with many different breeds, ages, sizes, and temperaments of dogs. It has also taught me a lot about managing multiple dogs at off-leash parks as well as dog-to-people and dog-to-dog interaction
I attended a Pet Sitting and Dog Walking course at Discover U which added to my knowledge about the activities and social needs of dogs.
Participating in obedience, flyball, and Pet CPR and First Aid courses has given me a very solid foundation in training and caring for dogs.
Having cared for many special needs and senior dogs, cats, and rabbits in the past I am experienced with giving injections, sub-Q fluids, syringe feeding, administering medications, wound care, and many other procedures. Prior to owning Dallas and Pals I worked in the medical field for many years and have found that having a medical background lends itself nicely to many emergency and supportive care methods.
I look forward to providing your dog with fun activities in a safe and healthy manner.
