About Dennis Schmotzer

I have been a dog lover since 2002 when I got my first rescue dog, my heart was broken when he passed away 3-30-16. I missed him so much I decided to get another best friend, I adopted another rescue dog 4-29-16, so I have years of dog   walking experience. I am also a cat lover, have had many cats in my life over the years, and currently have one.


Dennis is one of the most remarkable people I have had the privilege of knowing both personally and professionally. He is dedicated and focused in his work. He is reliable and trustworthy. I knew beyond any doubt I could trust him with my business and the animals.

— Stuart "Doc Win" Burnett | Atlanta West Veterinary Hospital

I'm very please with Dennis' service. He took my dog to the vet when I was unable. He helped carry my dog to his vehicle and transported him to the vet. He eased my anxiety over the symptoms my dog was experiencing.

— Kristine

While I worked late Dennis helped keep my dog, Micky, happy and healthy. He would come walk, feed and care for Micky as his own pet.

— Greg

Home / Away Pet Care, was an excellent choice for me and my dog Zipper. Even as I contacted the service at the last minute. the response was fast and right on time. Will from now on be my first and only choice for my family.
