    “A pawsome animal walker/sitter!”

    My name is Kristen, I’m 27 years old and I have been around animals my whole life! I volunteered for ASPCA at PetCo for about 2 years and have dog-walked and dog-sat since then. I absolutely love it! I have a beagle and kitten of my own - so I have a soft place in my heart for animals ❤️

    “Explore the Unseen”

    Hi I’m Elizabeth. I am employed at a veterinary practice for the past two years and have experience in the veterinary field (I will always have a first aid kit handy). I have two wonderful golden retrievers and a husky at home who I consider my best friends. We all love to go on hikes and explore new places. Every walk is an adventure for our four legged, furry best friends.

    Hi there! Gab here and looking forward to meeting your very best friend! I've grown up in a pet friendly environment my entire life and want nothing more than to share my expertise with you! I've helped care for and have boarded many dogs throughout the years, both big and small. Temperamental or not, a calm, firm, loving approach will always prevail! I love animals and I never mind a good long walk. I take great pride in helping make your and your dog's lives a little easier. Looking forward to meeting you two!
