Prance Around was originated on October 9, 2006 by Joelyne King. She was a college student at Towson University with a passion for animals since a very young age. Joelyne wanted to spend her time doing something she enjoyed and sought for an opportunity to earn a living while in college doing something she loved. She recognized the need for reliable pet care readily available to clients within the comfort of their own homes. She wanted to put her soon-to-be business degree to use. She started offering pet care services on her spare time when not studying. After a few months of focusing her time on the pet care industry, she knew this was the direction she wanted to take her career. The name Prance Around originated during a quick stroll with her dog. Freasky always had a beautiful strut when he walked but on this particular day, he was just showing off, so she turned to him and said, "Look at you Prancing Around!". That was it! She began advertising under her newly found business name and the rest is history! In 2007, her husband joined the business venture and today, Prance Around has become a recognized leader in the industry in Maryland. Prance Around has created strong working relationships with local veterinary offices, grooming salons, dog training associations, doggie daycare centers, animal rescue organizations but most importantly, with their two and four-legged clients! The Prance Around team prides themselves in providing pets and their owners with exceptional customer service and pet care. Always willing to customize their services tailoring to the specific needs of their clients pets and understanding that every pet is a little different and doing their very best to exceed clients expectations is how Prance Around strives to achieve success in the pet care industry today.
