About Us

4 Paws and Whiskers is an individually owned and operated small business. We are bonded and Insured and put ALL of our clients personal safety and care at the top of our priority list. At 4 Paws and Whiskers, We love all animals. Whether big or small, feline, canine, equine or small critters, we believe all pets should get as much love and attention as we can give them. Our emphasis focuses first and foremost on your animal, while simultaneously creating an open line of communication and responsibility to their human counterparts. In our busy world, calls and emails sometimes don't get returned. Not at 4 Paws and Whiskers, we keep in constant communication with all of our clients, giving daily updates and progress reports, so that you may rest assured your pet is being put first and given the highest quality care available. 4 Paws and Whiskers firmly believes in treating others how we wish (and our pets) wish to be treated. 

We are happy to go out of our way for our clients:
- We clean ears
- Provide preventive care with animals who have ear, skin, teeth and eye issues
- Clip and file nails, (depending on the dog)
- Brush Teeth
- Administer medication
- Brush, de-shed, groom and bathe
- We are happy to pick up food, puppy pads and medication among other necessities. 

It is our mission and goal to make sure your pet is safe, happy and well taken care of when you can't be there. We keep our client base to a manageable number, as to guarantee each day is perfectly laid out to ensure your pet has ample amount of time and attention devoted to him/her. We are not a kennel, nor do we keep your pet in a crate, we take them outside to run, play, interact and let them enjoy being a dog. If pets could talk, we'd bet they would prefer to be outside, instead of sitting in a crowded kennel waiting for their "play time."

    Eva is a true professional.  She has not only been a dog walker, but she had been a phenomenal caretaker and has helped us “raise” a wonderfully caring and affectionate dog.  As you can tell LuLu is very important to both me and my wife and Eva has been there to help with many things.  She is consistent in helping with training and even gives us tips on what to do if we ever have issues or concerns with Lu’s health.  In fact, after LuLu had knee surgery, Eva even carried her up and down the stairs daily, to make sure that she was properly taken care of and that we followed the doctor’s strict orders.  Eva regularly alerts us if she feels anything is not “normal” with Lu and she is also our regular dog sitter if we ever travel where we cannot take LuLu with us.

    I've used Eva for many years and she is the best dog sitter/walker I've ever had. I travel constantly and I never have to worry. She loves animals and it shows and is very responsive. The dogs play, have a great time and are exhausted when they come home, which is great, since I usually am, too. I've had good and bad dog sitters and Eva is the best! 4 Paws and Whiskers is VERY reliable!Very conscientious, responsive, honest, caring (loves all animals), knowledgeable (Eva catches things wrong with my dogs before me--long nails, a tumor that I didn't notice!!!, etc). Trustworthy.

    I’m a huge fan of 4 Paws & Whiskers.  Eva has a huge heart & a watchful eye.  I have seen the affection she feels for all of the animals in her care, just as she has for her own.  And I see how attentive she is to all of their needs.  I have a dog who I had given up on ever being able to socialize, and in one short session, Eva turned my Lucky into a social - if somewhat bossy - animal.  Thanks forever, Eva!

    Eva has been caring for Lucy since July. She is absolutely wondeful and Lucy could not be happier. Eva really loves her 4 legged clients. Her group walks are great, giving the dogs valuable time to chat and socialize. She is very flexible and accomodating with her schedule, which is extremely helpful for me. Last minute changes, taking Lucy for overnights, often on short notice. Lucy and I are very fortunate to have found Eva!!!

    My name is Shayna Punim. My parents, John and Elisa Harmon are my two favorite people. Eva of 4 Paws and Whiskers is a close second. She is my dog walker, which is good, as I am a dog and I love to be walked.  She takes such good care of me. I have so much fun when I am with her. She looks after me like I am her own dog. She would be the person I would want to stay with me if my parents went out of town. You should use her as your dog walker, so I can play with your special pet. I cant wait to meet them! I don't do a lot of endorsements, but I highly recommend 4 Paws and Whiskers.  I am a Eurasier,a new breed of dog. Do me a favor, goggle Eurasiers, and see my siblings, because we are all really cute.

    I feel so lucky to have found Eva!  My job requires me to work a lot and be gone for a week or so at a time – I can’t tell you the peace of mind I get knowing the girls (Libby & Poppy) are safe, happy and playing.  They get so excited when I get out the overnight bag at home and the squealing begins when we pull up to Evas…they just love it there!  Eva is also a total animal lover and so knowledgeable about animals in general.  Libby is 11 and was having really stiff joints, Eva recommended a natural remedy and Libby was feeling better within days!  She can also get the girls all spiffed up (nails, bath, etc…) before I get home…love it!

    I am soo lucky to have found Eva and 4 Paws. My poochie, Keeva is in the best hands possible when they are together. Keeva comes home tired from playing, swimming and hanging out with the other dogs every time. Not only that, I know that Eva is keeping a close eye on my puppy in case anything is out of the ordinary. Eva does a great job keeping me up to date on what each day was like for Keeva and gives me a heads up if there are issues. Thankfully, Eva is also very flexible with changing dates and revisions to the weekly schedules which makes it easy to make plans for myself too. My Keeva is my baby and I am soo happy to be able to trust Eva with her and know that there is no other person I would rather her be with when I am busy. Thanks Eva, we love you!
