Hello! My name is Karen Casey, CPDT-KA, owner of Paw To Hoof Pet Services. I have been in the pet service business since 2002 caring for dogs, cats, horses, small farm animals, and pockets pets. Throughout my many years in the pet service business, I have continued to grow my experience and education in the many facets of training dogs and horses. My degree in Horse Management, with a focus on training, from The Ohio State University and my Professional Dog Training Certification – Knowledge Assessed from the Council of Certified Professional Dog Trainers has allowed me to help owners better understand their pets and recommend ways to resolve or manage issues. I continue to enjoy attending horse training clinics and dog training seminars, in my spare time, to stay current and further my animal training education. Currently, my husband and I enjoy living with our amazing, Canine Good Citizen Certified dog, Boo, and our senior cat, Odie. My pets are my kids and I understand the concerns pet owners face when they need to leave their pet behind. I treat my clients pets like they are my own with a lot of love, care, and attention. Having a horse and dog educational background as well as years of hands on experience has made me a qualified and well rounded pet service provider for your four-legged kids. I hope to meet you and your fur-kids soon!
Dog Walker, Horse and Small Farm Animal Guru
My name is Brenda Barton, and I have always been a huge animals-of-all-kinds lover
and have lived on a farm for the last 25 years. During that time I have owned and
cared for all manner of critters including dogs, of course, cats, sheep, llamas, goats,
and beef cows. I have owned and enjoyed horses since 1991, having at least two and as
many as four at any given time; my husband and I currently live with three on our
small farm in Duvall, along with our one dog, two cats, pigs, chickens, ducks and
guinea fowl. Since the early 90's I have been interested in
and am an avid student of the horse and the principles of developing my horses to
be willing partners. I have also participated in many workshops, covering
everything from saddle fitting, to horse massage, hoof care, nutrition and
various alternative modalities, as well as an 7-week
Equine Assisted Learning program. I believe animals can be an important addition
to our quality of life, and it’s important to me to provide a happy, healthy,
balanced life for them.
