Meet the Pack Leaders
I started this company because being around animals makes me happy! I have been a retail store manager for the past 15 years, and after a bad day at the office, my dogs have always been able to put a smile on my face just as I walked in the door. And at that moment, all the stress falls away and the fun begins! Throwing the ball, playing with the Kong, snuggling up on the couch! That's living! My husband and I live in Pacifica with our 10 year old four legged
daughter, Tiki, an Aussie Cattledog, our 8 month old energetic Rhodesian Ridgeback, Dublin, 2 turtles, Honu and Oahu, and 2 sweet rats, Shamrock and Molly. All my dear babies!
So, my goal is to have fun everyday with animals and provide them with love and care while their parents are away. Thank you for the opportunity to provide the greatest care possible.
Owner and Dog-Walker of Lucky Pawz Pet Services
I have yet to find a job more rewarding than one that lets you work with animals. My first job in high school was working in an animal hospital as a veterinary assistant. This began the path that I would return to almost forty years later!! For the last three years I worked at the Peninsula Humane Society and was reminded of the rewards of working with animals. It's what I am meant to do! There's no
greater paycheck than to see the wagging tail of some pup waiting to go for a his walk or hearing the soothing purr of a new kitty friend. My home here in Pacifica is run by my five canine kids; Takota, a sweet German Shepard, Rocky, a crazy pitbull/boxer puppy and three yappy chihuahuas, Milo, Lucy and Puppy. What could be better?
The day I got my first puppy, Lucy, a shy Chihuahua, I realized the joy of having a dog in my life. Over the years, I worked a variety of jobs. I was a retail manager, a bather in a dog grooming facility and in a pet store where learned to care for a variety of animals, including puppies, reptiles, birds, and snakes. And one time I was a chicken wrangler.
For the past three years, I have worked for another pet service company, where I learned my skills as a dog walker, pet sitter and on occasion, I would take care of exotic animals! I then enrolled in DogTec Dog Walking Academy to really understand dog body language. I love the happiness I feel at the end of my day, playing with your pups and kitties all day!
I was fortunate enough to add Lucy's brothers Mylo, and Puppy, to our family here in Pacifica. Three Chihuahuas! Three times the fun! And yes, if you read Marianne's bio, we all live together! Mom, daughter and lots of fun pups!! The family that walks dogs together has more fun together!
I look forward to caring for your fur babies.

"Glynis is a life saver. The pack of dogs she works with is outstanding. Your dog will be thoroughly exercised and will continue to build "pack skills" making them better around other dogs where ever they go. 10 out of 10!" ~ Wade B.
"We have a very hyper lab, so when we wanted to find a Dog Walker, we were very careful to review a lot of places. After all Dakota is one of the family, and we are not going to trust just anyone with her. After interviewing many people, we happen to find Lucky Pawz. What a relief. Glynis was great from the moment we meet her. Dakota took to her right away. We are so lucky to have found her. It is like Dakota knows what days of the week she is going. She is always happy to see Glynis, and we know that Dakota is in great hands. Also she always posts pictures of all the dogs, and they are always running and playing. Dakota comes home tired and can not wait for her next walk. Thank You Glynis for taking care of an important member of our family." ~ Tanya Y.
"Glynis is great! She has done a wonderful job taking care of our dog. She is very organized and professional, was happy to send us text updates and photos of how our dog was doing, and is always very responsive. We feel very comfortable knowing that our dog is in her care. She is an animal-lover, and our dog liked her right away! We highly recommend her." ~ Rachel H.
"Glynis cares as much about the skill of taking care of dogs as she cares about the integrity of her business. And it shows in the way she treats her customers - human and animal alike. She's dependable in such a special, wonderful way. We feel the name of her business is perfect: your pet will be truly 'lucky' to have her, and she'll treat your pet like she's lucky to take care of it. Glynis is truly the best there is." ~ Jess H.
