Mary Nell Powell

About Mary Nell Mary Nell has adored dogs and taken care of them ever since she was a little girl. At age 12, she was her neighborhood’s dog walker/ sitter in the suburbs of Baltimore, MD. She moved to Nashville three years ago where she now works at a well known dog daycare/ boarding facility and has become their dog walker of choice. You’ve probably already crossed paths with her and her Catahoula pup, Vincent, at the dog park!

Bernie Hendricks

About Bernie It seems like Bernie has loved animals since the day she was born. Growing up, she had dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, lizards and snails and just about anything else she could get her hands on. She has been pet-sitting and house-sitting for years, and loves being part of the Nashville Dogz team. Bernie is certified by the Red Cross in Pet First Aid, is insured, and offers GPS tracking for your dog’s walks . She also works on a local farm and teaches art with the YMCA.

Ashley has had dogs her whole life, and has enjoyed working with them at various animal shelters as well as being a vet assistant for four years. She currently works and plays alongside many Nashville dogs at a local doggy daycare with Mary Nell. Not only can she administer any medicine and shots your dogs may need, but can also help with bathing, doggy nails, taking care of anal glands, and teeth brushing as well. Her passion for dogs combined with her great care, knowledge, and responsibility make her a wonderful asset to the Nashville Dogz team.
