MEET THE POSH PAWS TEAM
Hi, I’m Christi, the Founder, Lead Dog Trainer and Back-up Pet Sitter and Dog Walker for Posh Paws Pet Care.
I am an animal lover first, and a dog trainer second. I have always had a furry (and sometimes, not-so-furry) friend in my life. I have shared my heart with cats, dogs, horses, hamsters, turtles, frogs, chickens, ducks and even a pig over the years.
Now, I get to enjoy my life long passion for pets by caring for our client’s fur babies as if they were my own.
In 2010, I received my Certification in Dog Training from Animal Behavior College. Since that time, I have been doing private, in-home coaching sessions on obedience skills and behavior modification. I take every opportunity to expand my knowledge and continue my education. My goal is to build a bond between people and dogs that will last a lifetime
When I am not taking care of Posh Paws business or Dog Training, you can find me working as our Back-up Pet Sitter or Dog Walker. I can’t let the Team have all of the fun!
My hobbies include exploring new places with my 2 Dalmatians, playing Golf and Carolina Panthers Football.
Hi! I’m Tammi. I absolutely love pets/animals. I have had all kinds of pets all of my life; dogs, cats, birds, fish, hamsters, turtles. I currently have a cat which I have had for 14 years now. She is my baby, and I treat all pets like they were my own. I used to breed Himalayan and Persian cats. I love to smile and laugh and pets are perfect for making that happen. My hobbies are watching sports, bowling, canoeing, camping, painting, and volunteering at the Summerville Elks Lodge. It’s nice to meet new people, but meeting new pets is even better.
Hey guys! My name is Tori and I’m now a member of the Posh Paws Pet Care team! I’ve lived in the Charleston-Summerville area my whole life. I love and am familiar with all kinds of animals! I have had them as part of my family for as long as I can remember. I am a part time pet helper and a full time pediatric dental assistant, and I’m also a part time babysitter when need be. Right now I have 4 fur babies. I have a 3 year old basset hound named Charles and 3 awesome cats; Scary Terry, Toulouse, and Mr. B. I love animals and I cannot wait to help take care of your furry and not so furry family members!
Hey y’all! My name is Jamie, pet sitter and dog walker. I was born and raised in Charleston and moved to Summerville in 2013 when I met my husband. For as long as I can remember, I have always had animals of all kinds; from dogs and cats to fish and hermit crabs to birds and rabbits. I currently have six babies in my home. Three of them have four legs. There’s Ellie, the lazy lab mix, Drogo, the goofy German Shepherd, and Norville, the chubby cat. My husband and I are outnumbered, but I would not have it any other way. Life is always better with a pet. Or, two. Or, three! It is my goal to treat your pets as if they are my own, and I look forward to getting to know them!
Hello! My name is Shannon and I am happy to be part of the Posh Paws Pet Care team. I am from the great Northwoods of Wisconsin but I currently call Summerville home. I am a full-time student working on my hospitality degree at the Culinary Institute of Charleston. My husband and I have three wonderful boys, a dog named Lilly Pickles and a kitten named Oliver “Ollie”. Lilly Pickles is our rescue dog who enjoys lounging around the house, going for walks and getting yummy treats. Ollie is our kitten who will be celebrating his first birthday in October. Ollie loves playing with his best friend Lilly and giving us a 5:00 a.m. wakeup call for laser play time. Since a young age, I have been an animal lover. Over the years I have been a pet mama to a hamster, gerbil, fish, a newt, hermit crabs, rabbits, cats and dogs. My dream is to one day live on a small farm and rescue animals and give them a long and happy life. I spend a lot of time volunteering at local animal shelters and participating in animal foster programs. I look forward to caring for your fur babies like they are my own.
Hello!! My name is Melanie and I’m excited to be joining the Posh Paws Family. I recently retired from the Navy (22 years) and am a graduate of The Citadel class of 2007. My love for pets is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of dog walking/pet sitting. I have an 8 year old Gordon Setter named Gus who’s favorite pastime is playing frisbee & swimming! My hobbies include any outdoor activity, going to the gym, and watching sports (in particular Clemson Football!!) I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your fur babies and I can't wait to meet you and your pets 🙂
