“Pup's Best Friend”

Hi! I'm Jen. I'm not a dog owner, but I have spent a great deal of time taking care of family and friends' dogs and cats. I love being around dogs and enjoy pampering them like going out for walks, playing in the park, giving them baths, brushing their hair and even their teeth. I'm also a pretty active person, as I exercise at least 3 times a week doing tai chi or walking. I hope to earn your trust and confidence in taking care of your fur-baby! Mahalo.

“Your pup(s) will have fun on their walks with me!”

Aloha! My name is Norma! I’ve owned large breed dogs all my life; Akitas, Doberman Pinschers, Pit/terrier mixes, Aussies. More recently, our pups were two small Jack Russell terriers. Our current ‘kids’ are a Ridgeback hound mix and a small poi pup. I’m hoping to meet and walk more pups that need exercise and mental stimulation!

I am looking forward to meeting you and your dogs. As someone who has walked, played with, and house sat for both puppies and older dogs, I enjoy meeting pets of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. I am able to do short walks around the block, trips to dog parks, can organize play sessions, or even coordinate play times with other dogs if needed. I hope to meet you and your lovely pet soon.

I'm Julio, aloha!I've been surrounded by dogs all my life. As a baby in California, there was Barbara, a Terrier/Lab mix. Growing up in Maine, there was (in this order): Katie, Abigail, and Tabitha. My chores included feeding, walking, and cleaning up after them. All three were German Shepherds, a breed that my parents were and still are big fans of today. And, at my grandparents there was Bear and Kizzy, both a mix of Shitzu and Yorkshire Terrier.In my first apartment away from home, I lived with roommates who had a Boxer named Miranda. I enjoyed walking and spending time with her whenever I could until I moved.Consequently, all of these dogs were just a warmup for a Boxer named Emmy. A total sweetheart, I like to say she was my first love. She belonged to a friend who worked nearby. He was busy with his new job and I had nothing but free time so I ended up dog-sitting her as much as possible and absolutely loved every minute of it.Now I live in Hawaii and I would like to have these furry friends back in my life! I don't currently live in a place that allows dogs so I like to pay a visit to the Hawaii Humane Society when I can.I'm an avid runner, high energy, and like to stay very active. I believe exercise is good for dogs just as it is for humans! In the Chinese zodiac, I was born in a Year of the Dog (1982) and like dogs, I too like to think I'm fiercely loyal, trustworthy, and dependable.I look forward to taking good care of your furry best friend!Mahalo!
