Hi there! My name is Riley Fisbeck. I am a graduate student at the University of Alabama. I love all kinds of furry friends! I have had many beloved animals growing up, including a total of 7 cats, 2 dogs, and a handful of fish. I now have 2 cats back at home, Neeko who is a Maine Coon and Tito who is an orange Tabby. I love dog sitting for my friends and family when they ask, and I frequently visit my local shelter to help out! I look forward to meeting you and your pet family!

“I would love to get to meet your fur family!”

Hi, my name’s Taylor Dobeck and I recently graduated from the University of Alabama. I’ve always been a major dog person and have a strong passion for animals. I grew up with at least one dog from the time I was born and started dog sitting around age 12, and even dog watched for a family with 12 dogs. Needless to say, that gave me a lot of experience with dogs of all different personalities. Being a dog walker means getting to meet some awesome dogs.
