The Pack by Daisy was developed by Abby Alliman after she struggled to find daytime care for her dog, Daisy. While a traditional dog walker seemed like a good idea, Abby quickly realized that a brief walk around the block wasn’t going to be enough to fill Daisy’s day and expend her endless energy.  However,  doggie daycare wouldn’t be ideal as it didn’t allow for the outdoor time that Daisy craved, and also bound Abby to specific drop off and pick up times that her schedule made difficult to accommodate.


And with that, the seed for a new business was planted. What if there was a service that could come to your home, collect your fur-baby, and take them out to live their best life in the great outdoors? What if that same service paired your pup with carefully selected playmates to help build their socialization skills and truly elevate their recreation time? And what if this outdoor time could be customized to your –and your pets – preferences? From long woodland walks to energetic romps at the park, The Pack by Daisy is happy to build a play experience that best fits the unique needs of your pup.


Abby grew up in rural Fauquier County, Virginia, where she helped care for animals both big and small (just ask her about Ernest, her childhood goat!). She graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Virginia and previously worked in recruiting and sales for a number of DC’s biggest businesses. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her own dog, Daisy, supporting the Wahoos and UVA athletics, and playing armchair detective for 48 Hours mysteries.
