Hi humans and pups! I am an experienced pet owner and dog walker and would love to get to know you. I have had big dogs (Rottweilers, Malinois, and currently a lab) as well as small dogs (a rescue pup). I have an extremely flexible schedule and can accommodate most requests! I love dogs (a given) and fitness, so getting extra steps in with good company is my favorite thing! I also have a dog and use services for walking and boarding if I need to leave him, so trust me when I say I understand the level of care, professionalism, and love us dog owners expect when we leave our best friends in someone else’s hands! I can’t wait to meet your best friend!
