Dog Walking: Second Chance Dog Walking & Sitting

Second Chance owner Jill Stammer thinks pit bulls and other “bully breeds” have gotten a bad rap. Whereas some dog walking companies won’t take those dogs for fear of bad behavior, Second Chance welcomes them, along with all other breeds, with open arms. Second Chance can train your dog in areas like toy sharing and car anxiety, and offers pet sitting, walks, and play groups. Plus, the team understands that parting with your pet to go to work or out of town can be tough, so they make sure to send you photos and videos of your dog.
