Lara Evans – Pack Leader (All Services)
“We have had the pleasure of servicing over 200 clients in the Arcadia and Biltmore area. I have met many wonderful people and their pets, and have made life-long friends in the process. We are lucky because the people who use our services, are good pet parents, which almost always means they are good people. One of my many favorite quotes is ” A man’s soul can be judged by the way he treats his dog.” I have found this to be true:)”
Ileana Martinez: Dog Walking, Day Visits, and Over-Nights
Ileana was born loving animals since day one in the sunny city of Phoenix! She will be graduating in June 2014 with an associates degree as a Veterinary Technician from Anthem College. Being able to work with animals has always been a lifetime dream for her, and she is happy to be apart of the pooch patrol. After graduating she is planning on continuing her education to get certified in Equine medicine (horses), and traveling to Costa Rica to assist at rescues and local zoos. Her favorite experiences at Doggie Smyle include interacting with all the pups on morning walks & overnights as well as being able to have a special bond with each one. Ileana says, “I always get excited when I meet a new client because they became a new member of the family and I spoil each as one of my own. Nothing wrong with having a big family of wonderful doggies!” Ileana has a few furry pets which include four Papillons, and two paint horses. Along with enjoying her time around animals, she loves being with family, hiking, Ballet dancing, and traveling with her boyfriend. “If there are no animals in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
