    Hi, My name is Catherine. I am a full time professional dog lover, walker, and sitter. I have walked and cared for many dogs during my career.

I am passionate about caring for dogs of all shapes and sizes and understand the responsibility that comes with walking and caring for other people's dogs. I look forward to meeting, walking and bonding with your dog too!

    I am a young professional / recent graduate and I absolutely love all kinds of dogs. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and think this would be an amazing side position for me. Not being in a situation that would allow me to adopt my own dog, this is a perfect alternative to spend some quality time with awesome pups!
