My name is Jackson. I am 28 years old and live in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Growing up I had a wire-haired Viszla named Max who was always at my side throughout my childhood. Recently, I've been taking care of a my friends' Jack Rustle Terrier and Rottweiler when they go away. They trust me to care for their pets after they see how well I interact with them. I get along great with all animals I've encountered, but it's no secret I love dogs the most.

Hi there! My name is Kelly and I have over 10 years of dog walking and pet sitting experience. I really can’t remember a time when dogs weren’t a big part of my life! I have previous experience working at a veterinary hospital, as well as volunteering at a local animal shelter. I have worked with dogs of all sizes and all temperaments...over 89 different breeds to date! Every dog is different and I love getting to know the things that make each one unique. I can’t wait to meet yours!
