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!

Dog lover... I grew up around dogs and have just recently adopted one of my own! I love to walk my and my family’s dogs around the neighborhood or take them to the park every now and then. Great with animals and people. I'm a university 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!).

I’ve been joyfully walking and boarding dogs since 2018. I am comfortable with all breeds, from the smallest Yorkie to the largest Great Dane, and everything in between. My experience spans all life stages, from newly adopted puppies who are just learning how to walk on a leash, to seniors with special medical needs who require extra TLC and a leisurely pace. I have completed almost 400 5-star reviewed walks. Dogs are my passion and I would love to care for your best friend.

“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. :)
