Walking Privileged Paws
All Over Dallas
How many people, when asked, “What would your dream job be?” can answer that question with, “I already have it!”? Jake Long can! From a young age Jake realized he had a love for animals and unique ability to connect with them. When he graduated high school in 2013, he was confused by his lack of direction. Everyone else seemed to have a plan. Although Jake didn’t know what his plan was, he knew that what everyone else had planned wasn’t the plan that was going to fulfill him. He did know he didn’t want to be inside and sit at a desk. Coming from a family with a history of entrepreneurship he also knew he would be happiest working for himself.
Having walked dogs in the neighborhood since 2013, Jake realized there was always a demand for not only dog walking, but also other areas of pet care. Most of his walks were repeat clients and loved him as much as he loved them and their dogs. In 2015, with an idea and a purpose he made the decision to dedicate himself to his dogs’ full time.
Today Jake is no longer just the boy walking the neighbor’s dogs around the neighborhood. Through dedication and commitment, he has successfully grown his client base with an all-star cast of repeat stellar clients and pets who love him as much as he loves them. Privileged Paws is his successful business and Jake is happily committed to doing what it takes to continue grow, while keeping that same family feel that has helped make him the beloved dog walker/sitter his clients know and love. He is truly doing what he loves and it shows every day.
