Hi! My name is Dawn Higgins and I am the owner of Dawn the Pet Nanny LLC.
After spending my career in the corporate world only to be laid off twice within a short period of time, I decided to follow my passion. For as far back as I can remember we always had pets in our home including dogs, cats, fish, the occasional bird that our dog would bring home, guinea pigs, etc. I cannot remember a time in my life that didn’t include loving an animal. I worked part time in a boarding kennel and also a doggie day care. I began pet sitting part time in 2000 and decided to make dog walking and pet sitting a full time career in late 2010.
The majority of my time is spent volunteering for Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue or dog search and rescue. I enjoy spending my spare time with my three dogs Misty, Ellie and Dalton, reading, browsing antique shops and enjoying family and friends. I am CPR/First Aid Certified and enjoy taking Pet Nutritional classes that focus on natural and holistic treatment for pets.
It has been and continues to be a pleasure and is extremely rewarding to meet and spend time with all these wonderful pets! I’m so blessed to have met so many animals and their pet parents! I provide any extra assistance that may be needed while you are away and I supervise your pet sitter to make sure that your pets are cared for like family members!
