    My name is Jessica and I am in my 30s. I have 3, very active, school-aged boys and 3 furry babies of my own. My first furry love was a beautiful Rottweiler named McKinley. Now I have a Chow, a Beagle mix, and a Chihuahua mix so I am used to caring for and walking the large breeds down to the tiniest breeds. I have grown up around all animals, including horses, and have a lot of experience and respect for pets of all sizes. I'm an avid camper and hiker so I am used to all types of exercise. Can't wait to meet your furry babies!

    My name is Tanner, though most refer to me by my nickname, TK. I have had multiple dogs in my life and have cared for many between my own and my family's. I have experience with large and small dogs alike and love them all equally. While I do not currently own a dog of my own, I am one of the primary caretakers for my older sister's pitbull due to our differing work schedules. I have a deep passion for all animals and love spending time and learning more about them one-on-one. I look forward to hearing from you.

    I have loved dogs, as well as other animals, since I was a child. I’ve cared for my neighbors 2 black labs starting from when they were puppies. I would walk them and sometimes sit them. I did that for about 2 years. I also owned a small yorkie puppy from when I was 5. He did pass away when he was 12 though. It was very devastating because he was my pal. I took him on walks and to the dog park. He was truly my best friend. I absolutely LOVE dogs of all sizes and ages.

    “Walking and tail wagging”

    Hi, I’m Courtney! I started watching and walking dogs a few years ago. I have a dog of my own who is a mix of a bichon and a shih-tzu. I have been around all types of dogs and have experience with all sizes. I love getting to meet different dogs and taking care of them as if they were my own. Being outdoors is something I enjoy and why not make it even better with your dog! I will treat your dog with the best care and give it lots of love. Hope to meet and walk your dog soon! Thank you.

    I'm a recent retiree that loves being outdoors and being around four-legged friends. Our family's beloved poodle-retriever mix (a rescue) passed away last year at the ripe old age of 18. While she was with us, I was working from home and caring for her during the day. I plan to do some travelling now and so I haven't wanted to introduce another dog into our home, but I'd love to get to know yours!

    “All about those happy feet :)”

    Dogs have been an important part of my life. Growing up with them was the best thing that happened to me. I believe every baby is different and needs different attention. Also any dog tends to like me and enjoys being with me.
