Hello! I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. I moved back home to the Wilmington, DE area about 5 years ago after serving in San Diego, Boise, and the Seattle area. I love all animals. While I do admit that cats were my first love, it was not until 2004 when I got my first dog, a pug named Monster, and I became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have no children, so she is my "baby" and love of my life. Aside from owning dogs, I have had various roommates that owned dogs, Labs and Corgis. I have volunteered with shelters and pug rescues across the country. I worked part time at Fetch as a dog walker/pet sitter in Boise, ID. I love to run and be outdoors so dog walking is perfect for me. I am very excited to meet you and your wonderful pets!

“Caring, Experienced Pet care provider!!”

I have always lived in a household with at least one pet! My family had a big dog when I was really young and then got smaller dogs when we got older, so I have experienced all types of pups at all weight and ages. I started dog-sitting and walking in high school, so I have about 13 years of paid experience! Now I have my own 80 pd Rottie/lab mix, and I know how important it is for my furry buddy to get proper care when I'm not around. I can give that level of care to someone else who needs it!

“Every dog is the best dog.”

Hi! My name is John, and I've had dogs my entire life. Well... dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, reptiles, horses, fish... you name it, I've cared for it! I'm perfectly comfortable with whatever you've got at home. :) At the moment, my wife and I have three dogs, a husky, a small mutt and a pit mix, but I've had experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do have a few other jobs, so if I decline a request please know it has nothing to do with you or your dog, it's just a schedule issue. :)
