About Allison of Artemis

Hello! My name is Allison Mourad.

I own and operate Artemis Pet Care & Massage and I feel you should know a bit about who I am and where I came from before deserving any of your trust. I welcome you into my life and family as I hope you will welcome me into yours.

I share my happy life with my 2 wonderful dogs and my supportive husband.

My family...


I always wanted a "Harley." My wish came true 12 years ago when I set eyes on a little Maltese puppy that I now call Harley. Harley is an avid swimmer.


Brunsy is a 4-ish year old Terrier mix, found as a stray, on the streets near my Alma Mater in New Jersey. Some of my friends call him "Scrappy."

My recent past...

As a recently retired FBI Agent,

my last 24 years have been both challenging and exciting, but most of all, I have been given the gift of pride and accomplishment to have been able to serve the citizens of our country. From the beginning, the Bureau issued me a Top Secret Clearance, which speaks directly to my trustworthiness and integrity toward you and your pets.

While I was working as an FBI Agent...

Make no mistake -

being an FBI Agent was rigorous, demanding and required tremendous dedication and focus. Much of my free time was spent volunteering for a variety of animal causes and services including the following:

  • The Baltimore Zoo
  • The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
  • Chesapeake Birds of Prey - where I became certified as a Raptor Rehabilitator
  • Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society - providing massages to shelter dogs
  • Free canine massages to private clients

Over the years, the companion animals that I have loved, the abused animals I have come across and helped while on the job, and all of the beautiful wild animals I have encountered have touched my heart and played a big role in shaping who I am today. It seemed only natural and inevitable to incorporate my passion for animals into a second career.

My Certifications and Credentials

I became a Certified Canine Massage Practitioner through The Pet Massage Training and Research Institute in Toledo, Ohio. Certification to be a Canine Massage Practitioner includes the completion of courses in anatomy and physiology, as well as hands-on training in many types of massage strokes, energy patterns, interpreting canine behavior and dog handling methods.

I have performed over 250 massages which has allowed me to gain further experience and insight into massage techniques and working with a variety of dogs and their physical and emotional issues. I have seen real results. I also continue to seek additional training and certifications to improve my skills in topics to include advanced massage techniques, acupressure, Reiki and nutrition. I am certified in Pet CPR and First Aid through PetTech. I am currently a professional member of the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork, and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.

I am fully insured through Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
