Meet the Dog Walker
I’m Jessica Dolce, just a stubborn, high drive, well-meaning mutt.
I grew up in New Jersey, spent more than decade in Philadelphia, and now I’m living in Maine with my dogs, cats, and a gentle giant of a husband. Besides dogs, here’s what makes me squeal: drive-in movies, old post offices, vegetables, and libraries big or small.
I’m an animal welfare advocate, coach, educator, writer and speaker. I’ve worked (and volunteered) in animal shelters, a holistic pet store, and with dog trainers.
In 2013 I became a Certified Compassion Fatigue Educator via the Green Cross.
Through it all, I’ve always been a dog walker.
I’ve been professionally dog wrangling for more than 15 years and I’ve seen just about everything. I thought it was time to share what I’ve learned with all of you!
I’m also the gal that created DINOS™: Dogs in Need of Space. You can learn more about DINOS and respectful, responsible dog ownership on the new website here.
If you’re looking for Compassion Fatigue resources, check out my new website. I support animal care and welfare pros, helping them navigate the intense stressors of the important work they do. We talk about boundaries. A lot.
I’m pro-laughter. And I think you guys are awesome.
