Shirley Voigt

Dog Handler and Trainer for Dallas and Pals since 2015

Greetings!  Before reading below about how my skills and education can ease your mind while providing your dog with exercise and socialization, I’d love to share a few things to help you get a sense of who I am away from my work.

I am a native Washingtonian who grew up with dogs and a cat. I’ve been caring for animals for years, though not professionally until I joined Dallas and Pals. I love spending my spare time (ha! I also work weekends for Domino’s Pizza and attend the UW) hiking the beautiful trails in the Cascades with my Newfoundland, Koda. The wonderful mountains in our state turned me into an avid snowboarder who competed in nationals. When I’m not spending my time outdoors, I enjoy another of my favorite things, Harry Potter. . . anything Harry Potter.
