Lead Dog Pet Care Services is owned by Patrick Haley who was born and raised in the Milwaukee area. Patrick retired in 2009 after successfully owning and managing several businesses since 1983. Patrick and his wife Beverly moved to Granby, Connecticut in 2009 to be closer to their daughter and granddaughter.
Patrick realized within months he was too young to retire and started Walks Of Nature Pet Sitting Services for the areas of Northern Connecticut and Southwestern Massachusetts in the fall of 2009. Walks Of Nature started out as a one person company and eventually grew to more than ten dog walkers and pet sitters, and became the second largest pet Service company in the State of Connecticut. Walks Of Nature was awarded the Super Service Award for the Best Pet Care company in Connecticut and Massachusetts by Angies List for the years of 2014 through 2017. The company was sold in November, 2018. Patrick and Beverly returned to their home state of Wisconsin in November of 2016. They currently reside in Grafton, Wisconsin. Along with Pat starting his second pet care company, Lead Dog Pet care Services, he still maintains his consulting position with Walks Of Nature.
Pat has owned and raised dogs, cats, horses and a menagerie of other animals over the past 50 years. Patrick’s daughter Jill is considered one of the top behavioral dog trainers in the Northeast.
