Herb Lawson, Owner of Mitt's Pets in Atlanta


Herb's decision to start a dog walking and pet (both dog and cat) sitting company came about since moving to Atlanta six years ago.

His work schedule and distance between office and home prohibited him from jumping in the car to go take his dog out for mid day potty break and feeding. Prior to living in Atlanta, Herb grew up in Johnson City, TN  and has lived in Knoxville, Nashua, NH,  and Providence, RI.  His educational and business background over the years gives him a wealth of sales/marketing experience and learned by experience how to create and provide excellent service to customers. He attended East Tennessee State University and studied Political Science and Business Management.  Since college, his work career development has been varied such, he has been a Retail Men's Buyer for Proffitt's Department Store, Business Development Manager for Carnival Cruise Line , Director of Retail Sales for World Travel,  President/Owner of Bryan-Lawson Travel in Knoxville, TN and has worked in property management with Gable's Residential. Now, with over 30 years experience in sales, marketing and owner management , Herb has once again found his entrepreneur spirit and also with combined love for animals has created a new company specializing and making difference in pets well being and health - MITT'S PETS.  When a decision needed to be made on what to name the new company he decided the best name possible was after "his buddy and best friend" - his Miniature Schnauzer -  Mitt.
