Our mission is to provide a comprehensive choice of dog and other pet services using proven, positive training methods to meet each client’s unique set of needs

How We Are Different

We all know that no two people are the same, and the same is true with our pets. We understand that what may seem like a basic service, such as a dog walk, can require a complete different approach depending on the dog’s behavioral traits.

  • Certified: The professional pet sitters and professional dog walkers at Every Dawg's Dream (EDD) care for your pet like our own. EDD is comprised of pet professionals and specialists certified in pet CPR & first aid.

  • Trained: Because of our training and experience in animal behavior, we are able to observe and recognize each dog’s needs and adjust our techniques accordingly to make certain we get the best results from each service.

  • Rigorously Screened: We also realize that the decision to hire a pet care specialist is not one that is made lightly, after all, you are entrusting someone new to take care of your furry kids and have access to your home. So we want to stress that at Every Dawg’s Dream, Inc., every one of our pet care specialists goes through a rigorous screening process including background checks, ensuring they meet our stringent qualification and hiring requirements so you can have peace of mind knowing you have selected the best specialists with the highest levels of integrity.

As you can see, Every Dawg’s Dream is not just another dog walking/pet sitting company…we strive to go above the standard, providing you the added benefits of our knowledge and experience, and through positive reinforcement training, help your pooch live even a more fulfilling life.

Danielle, pet sitter

Pet Care Specialist

I've been dog walking and pet sitting for about 3 years. My background working with animals includes 11 years in veterinary care. I love jogging with my doggy clients, playing fetch, practicing behaviors such as sit, stay, and come.

Although I love ALL breeds of dogs, I have a very special place in my heart for Dachshunds, Terriers, and French Bulldogs.

I look forward to giving all the love and care your animals deserve while you are away!


Shawn dog walker pet sitter

Pet Care Specialist

I have lived in the Anaheim area for my entire life. I have always had a passion for animals of all shapes and sizes. I have had all sorts of pets throughout my life from my loving black lab Whoopie, to my rat Willard, to my current freshwater tank full of fishes, and my newest addition my little praying mantis. 

My previous animal experience was working at Petco for over 5 years. It was a great experience to work with so many different kinds of animals and learn so much about each kind of furry, feathered, or scaly animal. I was trained in just about every aspect of dog and cat knowledge. Including working 2 years in the grooming salon, as well as dog training, and I have extensive knowledge in food needs for all kinds of breeds. I also worked very closely with an adoption agency known as “Pardon me INC.” Which worked with all different breeds, and homeless dogs with special needs. 

I take any opportunity I can to be around these wonderful animals, and that is why I am so ecstatic to be a part of Every Dawg’s Dream’s team. I get to do what I love doing, and work directly with you and your furry loved ones. I promise to always keep your furry loved ones safety and happiness as top priorities, and to treat them like they were my own!


Helen pet sitter

Pet Care Specialist

My name is Helen Koup. I grew up in Brazil, moved to the US in 1999 and now live in Orange County. I used to be a fashion designer working long hours in downtown Los Angeles but working far away from home always made me feel bad for my pets. In 2015 I realized that I had been working in the fashion industry for too long so I quit to become a dog walker/dog sitter. People have always thought I was crazy for having so many pets, but I can't imagine my life without them.

I have a special needs dog, a senior cat, and handicapped turtle which I very much love and care for. I've done street animal rescues in LA and Orange County and have been walking and house sitting dogs for the past year.

Animals bring so much joy and happiness to my life and I can't wait to meet you and your pets! :)

I am certified in Pet CPR and First Aid.

Shannon K

Shannon dog walker pet sitter

Pet Care Specialist

Hello, my name is Shannon. I am a Huntington Beach resident and Nursing School Student. I have always been an avid animal advocate and absolutely adore animals of all sizes and types. I am a proud dog mom to a 7 year old blue pit bull named Riley that is the light of my life, whom I was blessed enough to rescue at 6 months of age.

Prior to rescuing my dog, I had a cat I adored named Tinkerbell that I had taken in as a stray as a child. I am no stranger to a variety of species and have never come across an animal I didn’t like. In the household I live in, I’m known as a second mom to all the other roommates’ animals in the house (which includes a Chihuahua, Dachshund, a Toy Poodle, a cat, a Green Cheek Conure, two fish, and a snake).

I consider animals like my children and am always ready to mother, rescue, or care for any animal in need. I live by the ideology that animals are such a gift of unending and unconditional love and deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and love that we as humans can give to them. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members soon!
