“Dogs just want to have fun!”

Enthusiastic dog lover with over 14 years dog walking experience. I enjoy hiking and being outdoors and nothing better than a brisk long walk with a furry friend by my side. I am detail-oriented and responsible. I have been self-employed for 20+ years in software design and more recently as the owner of an established Dog Walking business that I’ve now sold.

“A WALK TO REMEMBER...not like the film”

Hello! My name is Eric! I work as a high school math teacher in Georgetown and live in the Lewes area. I thought during the summer, it was a great idea to walk dogs since I am available during the day when a lot of other people work. I have grown up with dogs although I sadly don't have one currently, which is why I want to meet/play with yours! I am very active and enjoy biking and walking myself...So I promise that your dog will get great exercise with me! I am very friendly and usually all kids and dogs love me! :)

I have always had a love for animals! I grew up with a beagle and from there, planned to have dogs of my own. I have volunteered at animal shelters and have adopted 3 rescues as an adult, all with various challenges. These pups learned to trust me and to know I would take great care of them. They taught me how to handle all types of situations while out for a walk, etc. Please know I will treat your dog as my own and will take the utmost care of them while they are with me.

“Excited to share a smile/adventure with your pet!”

I am a cat owner who equally loves dogs and needs her dog fix! I love being outside and exploring new places with dogs. I will tailor your dog's walk to their personality; be patient if they want to sniff/enjoy the sights, run if they want to burn off some energy, etc. Before I leave I will always check to make sure they are comfortable.

Hi, I'm Mark. I live in DC near Metro Center/Shaw. I have a 14 year old whippet/Italian Greyhound/(and possibly also Chihuaha) mix. For the past two years, I've been taking care of him and helping him adjust from comfortable life in Tampa to his new, big city life in DC. He's got a few health problems and I've been learning how to take care of him and my life recently has been focused on taking care of him. I've taken care of many friends and family pets including a Yorkie, German Shorthaired Pointer, Australian Shepherd mix, Labradors and several other mixed breeds. People have always told me I'm good with dogs and that I manage to get those shy dogs who'd rather be left alone, to play and just be a little more social. If you have a high energy dog who needs to run, feel free to ask me to take your dog for a run. I could use the exercise :/
