Hi! My name is Julie Harris and I am the owner/operator of Waggin’ Wheels, LLC. I have been around animals my entire life and consider them to be part of my family. I am very excited about extending my family to include your pets as well.
When I was growing up, we always had dogs, cats, and horses. I trained and showed dogs in 4-H for 10 years. During this time, I also raised a Pilot Puppy for Pilot Dogs, Inc and he later went on to successfully become a Seeing Eye Dog.
In addition, I spent several of my summers working for a local veterinarian in his practice. Originally, I planned to go into veterinary medicine, but later I decided to pursue a career in education instead. I was a math teacher for 14 years and have both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in disciplines within secondary education (mathematics, physical education, and educational administration). My teaching license is still current which means I have successfully passed numerous background checks and my fingerprints are on file with the state.
I decided to open this business because it allows me to return to my love of working with animals. I truly understand how difficult it is to find someone trustworthy to come into your home and take care of your pets while you’re away. I’ve had more than a few bad experiences boarding my dogs or hiring a "non-professional" to pet sit. I promise to treat your pet as if it were one of my own. I feel very privileged to do this for a living and to be able to spend time nurturing people’s pets when they can’t be there to do it themselves. Please feel free to call or e-mail if you have any questions about me, my web site or any of my services. I look forward to meeting you and working with your pet family!!!
Oh, one last thing . . . all of the animals you see on this page were my “kids” :-) when I started my business back in 2008. Sadly, they have all passed over the Rainbow Bridge now; but as every pet owner knows, they will always hold a very special place in my heart. I have always been truly blessed to have wonderful animals in my life. I absolutely believe all of our animals are a gift from God and should be treated as such!
