Erin G.

Erin G. became a business owner in 2001 when she started Dogwalker Etc! The company started out of her home by herself with a leash and an old pair of running shoes. Her desire to work with animals while enjoying the outdoors of Hawaii seemed to blend perfectly in this job, and so the adventure began.
Through the years, she's met lots of great people and their humans! They've taught her a lot about having trust, respect, & patience. For many years, she worked solo. Now, she has a wonderful team of sitters that allows her to always be available & make sure no pet goes uncared for. Erin's days are now mostly spent in the office answering phones, emails, and ensuring the smooth running of each and every pet-care assignment. She still enjoys getting out for the occasional cat sit or dog walk...she just can't resist!

Luella and her family have been welcoming pets into their home for Dogwalker etc since 2013! Luella’s home is perfectly suited to keep clients safe and comfy while parents travel. Her Hawaii Kai home is spacious, one level and fully fenced. A doggy dog can be accessed for those brave enough to learn to use it although walks are offered throughout the day as needed. Luella shares her home with one friendly female pup named Bree (pictured). She also lives with her husband and adult son. Everyone is truly a dog lover and they enjoy meeting new dogs of all shapes and sizes!
