    I grew up with a Collie named Elsa and in the many years since have become close friends with Maggie, Phoebe, Molly, Mazie, Max, Lacy, Clover and other dogs who have lived in the families of my friends. I love to walk (being very much like a dog in that respect) and I love spending time with dogs. I look forward to going on some great walks with your best friend.

    Hello, my name is Robert and I have been working with dogs for the last year and a half at a dog hotel. While there I’ve been taught how to work with dogs and have worked with many different breeds. I have a Labrador/Jack russel mix and believe me, he is a bundle full of energy. I look forward to getting to know your pup and making sure he has a fully interactive and healthy walk. My ultimate goal is to make sure he/she is well excercised and a happy dog.

    I love dogs! I know most profiles say that but I really do. They are loyal, smart, fun loving energetic and also wonderful friends. I treat my pets like members of the family. And I will gladly treat yours like family. I have been around pets my whole life. I also volunteered at WSHS for 4 years, so I have lots of hands-on experience with different breeds of dogs. I currently have a German shepherd-pit mix of my own. I look forward to working with you and your dog.
