    Hi! My name is Kirby and I am a lifelong animal lover, especially dogs and cats. I currently own a pit bull mix named Wilma and tabby cat named Fred, and these two are the loves of my life. Growing up I participated in dog agility and obedience with our family dog, and I have experience volunteering at a dog shelter in Binghamton, NY. I understand the importance of patience, respect, and compassion when interacting with animals and I will treat your dog as if it is my own.

    Hi, I'm Carissa! I've got two dogs of my own who recently took the journey with me to start a new life in the area. I believe my animal experience is taken with much comfort, respect, and love. Change is a challenge, but I have what it takes to cater to needs. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages and absolutely love meeting new ones. I'm a very active person who hikes, does yoga, and meditates daily. I will make sure your pup is taken care of and experience is as positive as possible!

Riley is a sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Rigby is a very wild Jack Russell Terrier, and my boyfriend has a Rottweiler named Tucker, so I can handle any type of dog!
