    Hi, I'm Tyler! I can't remember a time when there weren't dogs running around my house as a kid. I've taken care of my Miniature Australian Shepherd Izzy for almost 10 years now. A couple years back, our family was fortunate enough to adopt Izzy's niece, Tami! I think dogs deserve exercise and I'm happy to help make that happen!

    “I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

    I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

    “Full-time pet caretaker (& pet lover & cuddler)”

    Hello, I’m Kelsey! I have always been a MAJOR dog lover. When I was really young, I used to wish for a pet puppy each year as I blew out my birthday candles. My wish came true in 2003 with a rescued papillon mix, and since then I have owned three wonderful dogs. In 2010, I started walking and "dog-sat" for a variety of breeds- everything from chihuahuas and dachshunds to pit bulls and boxers! I cannot wait to meet your fur-baby and give them all the exercise and attention that they need!

    Hi my name is Bianca Moeller and I have been dog sitting and walking since I was about 10 years old. I grew up with dogs in the neighborhood and I currently have a small dog. I am very tentative to owner's instructions and to dog's mood.

    Hi, my name is Tyler and I'm from San Jose, California. I've been around dogs of all sizes my whole life but have owned labs and a boxer pointer mix. I have dog sat, boarded, and walked multiple dogs over the last two years for family and friends. Some of the breeds I have watched are shitzu, labrador retriever, and English mastiff. I am looking forward to meeting your furry friends!

    “Asheville professional providing great dog care”

    I am a young professional living in Asheville and looking to help some people out by walking their dogs! I grew up with a dog but don't currently have one because my space is too small and wouldn't give a dog enough room to get out and play. I like being outside and walking a lot, so this is a great chance to do that more while spending time with dogs too!

    When I was 5 years old my family got two dogs, who became the two animals that taught me responsibility. They also inspired my love for animals, and now I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University. I have worked as an animal care worker at the Asheville Humane Society, owned animals of a variety of species. I have experience administering various forms of medicine.

    “Positive reinforcement and lots of exercise :)”

    I've been pet sitting and dog walking for 10 years and currently own a dog, cat, and horse! I have experience dealing with difficult situations, behavioral issues, and I always put safety first. I have learned a lot from my own high energy red heeler, Rooney! I can take your dog for a high energy run or play, or an easy stroll around depending on their needs :)

    Hello! My name is Amber and I am the proud adoptive mother of a six and a half year old Cairn terrier poodle mix. I was active in fundraising efforts for FOTAS (Friends of the Animal Shelter) while living in southern Oregon. I thoroughly enjoy observing, intuiting and responding with compassion to each dog’s unique needs. I consider it a privilege to care for your beloved fur bundles of joy!
