Co-Founder and President, Kate:
Kate managed the largest dog walking service in the city for eight years; she is truly an industry expert. Kate prides herself in having learned the industry from the ground up. Kate started her journey by walking dogs between her college courses, and eventually transitioning into hiring, training, and managing her team, as well as every other aspect of the dog walking service. Kate has an affinity for all dogs, but her first and truest love is for Labrador Retrievers. Kate grew up with five consecutive pure bred Labrador Retrievers before adopting her current companion, a beautiful little Pomeranian named Bear. Kate was inspired to found MixyPaws, as she recognized the other services in the pet care industry was lacking the professionalism dog owners, such as herself should expect. Kate has built a reputation as one of the very best in New York City in her field; known for her personal touch and commitment to building close relationships with both clients and their pups.

Ethan moved on to consulting work for several startups, and has a strong entrepreneurial spirit, which along with his love of dogs inspired him to embark on this new venture into the pet care service industry. Ethan grew up with several wonderful Cocker Spaniels who filled his childhood home with fun and happiness. Later, Ethan adopted an American Hunting Hound Mix, which became one of his best friends in his early adulthood years and looks forward to adopting his next furry friend as soon as possible!
