My Story - I'm originally from Southern California. My wife, Briana, and I fell in love with Charleston immediately, particularly Daniel Island, like I'm sure many of you have, when I played for the South Carolina Stingrays.. We have 2 french bulldogs that we rescued, that have our hearts. I retired from hockey in 2017 and we decided to make Daniel Island our permanent home! What an experience I had playing hockey for a living, but I'm not out of my skates quite yet! 


With my passion for dogs and hockey, I combined the two and established Skate Dogtor! I've rescued 5 dogs, one even from Europe when I was playing overseas. My love and understanding of dogs, along with my skating ability and awareness, combines for a fun experience your dog will absolutely love! I have created tailored exercises, which allows your dog to run freely, harnessed, and under my control.  I also offer regular dog walks, and stroller rides - which is a great option if your dog is older or injured like our boy Theo, or lazy Violet.


Whatever you and your dog need, I am here for you and your pup, 100%!


With my passion for skating and dogs, I've combined the two for a greater good! I believe every animal should have a furever loving and happy home! I've partnered with our local Charleston Shelters to showcase their adoptable pets to help them find their furever family and home, by skating them into adoption!
