    “Life-long animal lover who’s good with people too”

    Hi I’m Annette, pronounced Annetta. I’ve been a lover of all pets and frequent pet sitter since I was just 10. My own dog passed away from old age a few years ago and I’ve filled that hole in my heart with pet sitting and dog walking. I’m here hoping to add even more animal cuddles to that! I love all animals (though pet spiders would not be my preference 😂), dogs and cats are my favorite. I’m a music lover, foodie, and avid (former *sigh*) traveler.

    Hi there! I'm Gabriel, and I've been walking dogs practically my whole life. I can handle any dog, big or small, from a special needs senior to your strongest puller. On every walk, I will do my very best to make sure your dog has an absolute blast and comes home well-exercised! I can walk as fast as needed, and am ready to adapt to whatever your dog may need along the way. Looking forward to meeting your furry friend!

    I work from home, I love dogs & all animals. I am very active. I like to workout & long walks. I've been a dog owner my whole life and have cared for dogs of all sizes from English Bulldogs to Mini Pincher. I believe dogs are our best friends; they give to us so much, so in return they deserve to be surrounded by love and care 24/7. I understand how important you dog is to you, so I will do my very best to make sure they're well taken care of, happy and treated like they're a part of my family.
