I would be honored to walk your pup! My name's Jenn; I'm a dog enthusiast currently living in Lancaster with my husband & our husky mix, Jackson. I've grown up with German Shepherds and Labs my whole life, and have puppy sat for all kinds. I've found that I'm most happy and at peace when in the presence of dogs. I'm also a singer, so if your dog is left humming a new tune I wrote for him or her during our stroll, it's on me! Thank you for your trust and I hope to meet your pet very soon!

Hello. My name is Cathy and I am, by nature, an individual who is passionate about caring for people and animals who need good, quality care. My adoration for animals, especially dogs, began when I was "knee high to a grasshopper," and it has never wavered over the years. In my family, my canine babies outnumber my human ones by a score of five to two. We have two chihuahuas, a hairless Chinese crested, a miniature dachshund, and the goofiest golden doodle in the world. We, also, have two cats and a leopard gecko named Mikey! In our home, our animals are treated like family members, not pets. If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to treat your pooches like an extended member of the family, then I am the dog walker for you. If you have special requests/instructions, then you can rest assured that your wishes will be carried out each and every time without fail. I will treat your dogs the same as I do my own, and they are pretty pampered, if I must say so myself.While I realize how difficult it can be to trust someone else to care for your animals, I have years of experience caring for both animals and people in various situations/environments, so you can rest assured that they are in the best hands...other than your own.

I love dogs. I've had dogs all my life...normally more than one at a time. It is so much fun to walk and play with them and experience their wonderful individual personalities. Whenever my wife and I are at the mall we always stop to play with the puppies at the pet store. Plus, when we see someone in our neighborhood walking a dog we always stop to say hello which is why we always have dog treats in our car.
