Hello I'm Ariel, I have live with Animals all my life and I have to say dogs are my favorite animals! I started learning dog training when I was 12 years old before then I was reading any dog book I could find. To this day I still think it was the best class I have taken as it helped me understand my childhood dog Callisto better and has helped with many other dogs. I have lived with a taken care of dogs of different sizes, ages and temperaments and have found that patience and listening to body language is the key to making good friends man or beast.

Hi my name is Elijah, I’m 20 from Sacramento. I live in Los Angeles for school. In my lifetime I’ve had about 10 dogs in all shapes and sizes and I’ve taken care of them all by myself since I was a little kid. Unfortunately I don’t get to see the three dogs I have now at home often since I am away for school but I feel like this is a great opportunity to do something I love.

I have been an animal lover since I can remember. As a child, we always had at least one dog and at least one cat at home, as well as a family horse. Currently, I have four fur babies (in addition to my human son), and a few scaly and amphibious ones, too! Of my fur babies, three are rescues, and all considered part of the family. I look forward to treating your fur baby as I do my own: spoiling him or her with the love and affection that they deserve in your absence. ~Melisa

Howdy, I'm Evan! I've had a lifelong love of dogs, getting my first pup, a boston terrier/australian shepherd mix, at the age of 5. Since then I've had the pleasure of owning big dogs and little dogs of various temperaments, and trained a few to boot! I've pet-sat for friends and family many times, and I've always left those puppers just as happy and healthy as they were when the owner left. I can't wait to meet your furry friend and help them get the exercise they need and deserve!
