Welcome! My name is Jamie and I am the owner and founder of Paws & Play, LLC. I am a Connecticut native who recently returned from living in NC, MA, and MD. Although I had the incredible opportunity to move around quite a bit for both professional and personal endeavors, I am back in the Nutmeg state for good! I could not be more thrilled to be “home” and in close proximity to my family again.
Here’s a brief background about me: I have been caring for pets for about 17 years total, but mostly just for friends and family. I had my own black and tan Dachshund, Frankie, growing up, and my love for dogs has only increased from that point on. I have now been a professional pet-sitter for about 3 consecutive years, and about 3 months ago I took the exciting leap into starting my own business; the leap that I quickly found I was destined to make. Caring for dogs is in my blood; I have an innate ability to connect with dogs that surprises even myself. I also hold myself to exceptionally high standards, which allows for the best care possible for your fur babies, when you’re unable to care for them yourself. Whether you’re going on a family trip, or attending your best friends’ wedding, or attending a graduation for a special person in your life: you’re going to need someone to hold down the fort. Cue Paws & Play!
Below, I will begin to introduce you to the staff that make up Paws & Play. Please be patient as we are still building our team – more to come soon!
