I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs.

Hi, my name is Evie. I have been dog-walking & pet-sitting for 8 years now. I learned all I know about dogs from hands-on training, reading source material, & watching training videos on dog behavior/breed characteristics. I've mainly worked with the same dog owners and their pets for a few years, but am excited to meet more 4-legged friends through this experience.

“Give every puppo a hug and a squeeze”

After close to 600 walks for canine clients, I've gained much confidence and experience to care for all kinds of puppos. Today I am a proud momma to a German Shepherd mix I adopted, and we're so happy together. Dogs are wonderful creatures. I often feel like we don't deserve such loyalty and undying affection. For all they do for us, I like to give back and remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.
