Travelier First. Belly Rubs Second.
Olive is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. If you want to be Olive's best friend, just give her belly rubs and she'll love you "FUR"ever!
The word Travelier is a combination of the words cavalier and travel. It started back when Olive was only a few months old. She would come with me to run errands around town. It soon evolved to bringing Olive on all our adventures.
I started Olive The Travelier to help inspire, teach, and connect with people who desire to experience life more, with & without a dog! Whether you're traveling, or simple day-to-day activities, my goal is to help you feel confident by yourself AND with your dog.
the dog mom
I'm Haley, Olive's Fur Mama! I'm a wife to my wonderful husband, Bryce. Olive is my first fur babe, and I love every moment of it.
Ever since I was a little girl I've loved dogs. When I was 3 years old I wandered away from home to go play with the dogs down the street. I just about gave my mother a heart attack!
I love traveling, chocolate chip cookies, and laughing. Laughing is my "morning coffee". Having a bright, fun sense of humor is essential in my life. A good laugh has the ability to reset my mind and perspective.
Dog Mom First. Friend Second.
A Life Once Lived, Was No Longer The Life I Was Living
There was a time in my life when traveling was extremely difficult, more so mentally than physically. Olive helps me everyday overcome my worries & fears.
In 2014, I suffered a life changing concussion that resulted in seizures, blackouts, and temporary loss of feeling in over half of my body. It took years of therapies, neurological testing and studies. My entire personality took a 180°.
The extroverted and fun life I once lived, was no longer the life I was living. I lost all sense of security, self awareness, and personality. I could barely leave my home without having a panic attack, let alone travel. I was trapped in my own body, with no way out.
Olive Became My Safe Haven
When we got Olive, we began going on small adventures. She helped me start to feel safe again. Little by little her tiny paws captured my heart and became my safe haven. Little does she know, while she was showing me the world, she became mine. She's not just a dog, because this little girl saved my life.
