“Walkin’ Rover all over!”

I walk my dogs every day, and in the 18 years that I have owned dogs, this has been my daily routine and joy. I personally trained my dogs to walk well on a leash. One of my dogs was two years old when I adopted him, and he was never trained to walk on a leash before. Now he loves to go on walks with his family. I would be an excellent walker for another dog owner. I am very reliable and responsible, and I treat my canine friends with kindness, respect, and love.

Hi, I’m Keilynn from White Plains, New York. Because I grew up around animals, I’ve always felt comfortable around them. But I also have developed a special attachment to them. That's why I want to work as a dog walker. I get a great deal of satisfaction from knowing I can help both dogs and their owners.

I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

After getting settled in the hotel, grab a bite at one of the several pet-friendly restaurants around. Some suggestions would be Casey’s Tavern, who serves traditional pub meals and not only allows your dog on the patio, but well-behaved pets can go inside as well. Another tasty venue is Siena. They offer delicious Tuscan courses, and your dog is welcome on their lovely terrace.
