   "My husband & I lost our dog Tankie of 11 years due to an enlarged heart in 2021.  Tankie died in my arms.  I made a promise to our boy Tankie right then to have a life change shift to helping all Animals.  Tankie is my inspiration for starting Beach Dawg Care, this is Tankie's Legacy & that's him right there in my logo and his actual paw print on my site!

   Hug your dogs every single day!  Give & show loads of love ❤️ always to your Fur Babies 🐶 !"

ALL DOGS ARE EQUAL

   Derrick is not an App.  He does not have a "Team" & has no interest in Franchising & never will!  With him, you can call, text or email about scheduling or other things he needs to know.  The last few years has seen the emergence of multi million dollar Dog Walking companies who describe themselves as an "App" or the "Uber of Dog Walking".  At the end of the day, your Fur Baby doesn't care about Apps!  They just want to know they're loved & that they can trust a familiar face to take good care of them when you're at work or away on vacation.  This is what Derrick (Beach Dawg Care) is.  He forms a close bond with all Dogs.  In Miami-Dade County, Derrick Alan Higgins is known as the "go-to guy" for all things Dog related.  He is very detail-oriented & very responsible with his clients.  Derrick's Beach Dawg Care is a Complete, Full Dog Care Service including Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, Dog Sitting & In Home Pet Care with a Holistic approach to a Dog's Health considering every aspect of your Dog from Food, Nutrition, Lifestyle & Activity Level individualized with loving care.  He is experienced with all types of Dogs: big, small, strong & hyper pups including Bully Breeds.
