Mike and his dog Jake, the inspiration for the business name

I fell in love with Jake the first time I saw him. He has inspired me to follow my passion and by living in the now. So I left the banking industry after several years with a major corporation and thus Jake N Friends Pet Services was started. Jake N Friends Pet Services started with a single client and has steadily grown, but still with the same focus: the attention given to you and your pet(s) is our number one priority. Our passion lays in pet care and Jake N Friends is our vessel.

The newest member of our team!

I am a lifelong Seattle resident and a born dog lover. When I was a kid I would cut out photos of dogs from ‘Dog Fancy’ magazine and put them up on my wall. I always had several dogs growing up, mostly Dachshunds and Chihuahuas. As an adult I wanted to spend more time with dogs and started walking them part-time about 4 years ago. I also work as a designer and illustrator (tatianagill.com). A year ago my partner and I adopted Oliver, a chihuahua-terrier mix, from PUP (People United for Pets). He is the light of our lives and we are dedicated to his proper care. I am never happier than when playing with and taking care of dogs, I find their joy infectious.

What is our history with pets?

While growing up in Colorado, I had variety of animals, from dogs to cats  to chickens.  I enjoyed our Great Dane, Sheba, a big couch potato with a powerful tail, and Max, my beautiful Siamese cat who followed me everywhere as if he was a dog. Years later, I moved to Phoenix, my first dog, Shakiel, an amazing gentle Rottweiler who was loved by the neighborhood kids. After moving to Seattle came Sylvester, Twitter Bird (Moma) and Sammy , all beloved cats.

Why the name Jake N Friends?

Jake  joined the family two years ago. Jake--  the name sake of the business, came from Georgia Peaches, a local Seattle organization that rescues dogs and puppies from animal kill shelters in Georgia. Based on this experience, I now serve on the Board of Directors of this wonderful organization. I fell in love with Jake the first time I saw him; he has inspired  me to follow my passion and by living in the now. So, I left the banking industry after several years of service with a major corporation and thus Jake N Friends Pet Services was started. Now, I spend my days hanging out with my furry buddies full time, and Jake & I get to make a new friend every time a client comes aboard.

Thanks for taking the time to consider Jake N Friends as your full-service pet care provider. I am so very thankful to have the opportunity to follow my passion and provide outstanding service to my fellow pet lovers.  - Mike & Jake
