Hello. I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. While I do admit that cats were my first love, in 2004 I got my first dog, a pug named Monster. I then 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 volunteered with various shelters and pug rescues across the country. Can’t wait to meet your dog!

“Let’s walk!”

I am the mom of two rescue pups, a Golden Retriever/Brittany mix from the streets of Philadelphia and a Boxer/Beagle mix from the mountains of West Virginia. I work as a volunteer for a Golden Retriever Rescue Group in MD. I have owned dogs my entire life and have a soft spot in my heart for them. I would love to be the bright spot to your dog's day by showing up to take him or her out for a mid-day walk. I look forward to meeting lots of fun fur-friends!

“I love dogs so much that I adopted my own!”

I grew up around dogs and just recently adopted one of my own! I love to walk mine and my family’s dogs around the neighborhood and take them on the occasional hike. My new dog is full of energy so he’ll actually come running with me while I bike! Great with animals and people. I'm a grad student trying to make a little extra money for loan repayment and what better way than to meet and walk some furry friends?! I've worked with dogs of all sizes (5-150 pounds!).

From the day I was born I've lived with anywhere from 1-6 dogs in my house. My first dog, Becky, was my first love. I currently care for four - three of whom are named for Harry Potter characters (Lily, Luna, and Sirius.)I've had everything from pomeranians to greyhounds, and I've cared for my brother's German Shepherd as well - so I'm accustomed to dogs of all shapes, sizes, and energy levels.

“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. :)

“Dogs leave paw prints on your heart.”

Hello dog lovers! I have owned an active dog who loved long walks and runs, a dog who preferred shorter walks, a fearful dog, a friendly dog, and a reactive dog. I volunteer as a dog walker at a shelter where I have been provided training classes including behaviorial, manners, impulsive, and social. I have walked dogs twice the size of me who jumped, tugged, and mouthed, so if you have an excitable dog, I'm your girl! Whether you have a dog who loves long or quick walks, I got you!
