Steel City Pack Leader

Andrew Marrangoni (Fear Free Certified)

Service area: East End and Mt Washington

Steel City Pack Leader has created a personalized, canine concierge service designed to work hand-in-hand with dog owners to help them make wise decisions about their pet’s care. Most dogs share the same needs: exercise, enrichment, and affection. However, each dog differs in the way they react and adapt to these needs. This is why Steel City Pack Leader begins our relationship with all clients with a complete evaluation of their dog’s health, temperament, and behavieor. The results of this evaluation will enable us to create a service plan tailored specifically for you and your dog. Services Include: Dog Walking, Dog Training,Dog Grooming and Pet Care Liaison. We have found that using the hierarchy of dog needs as our foundational base for creating care plans, has a longer more substantial result than just concentrating on one aspect of care.
