Get to Know Me

My name is Bertha, better known as the Aloha Dog Mom, and I am the dog enthusiast and author of this blog.

I was born and raised in Southern California and have made the Hawaiian island of Oahu my forever home…best move I have ever made in my adult life!

I am a disabled combat military veteran, having served in Kabul, Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.

My dog Julian (the Cavalier King Charles pictured next to me) is my trained service dog to help me manage combat related PTSD.

I own and run a in-home dog boarding business and dog mom to multiple fur kids.

I organize pet friendly events via Hawaii Pet Beat and also work as a freelance Instagram strategy coach for businesses, entrepreneurs, personal brands, or bloggers.

My love of dogs and working along side of them inspired me to begin my blog as Hawaii Pet Beat, but I found it was time to branch off and start my personal brand…Aloha Dog Mom.

On this site you will find special interest blogs regarding all things dogs and reviews on some trendy new dog products I have come across in the pet industry.

This site is for dog paw-rents and dog enthusiasts alike…no matter where you live in the world.
