Hello, my name is Sara and I am looking forward to meeting you and your dog! I grew up in a home with small lap dogs that held my heart but enjoy playing and being active with larger dogs. Safety and reliability are top priorities for me. I want to make sure your dog is safe and comfortable as well as ensuring that you as their owner feels assured that I will be arriving on time and properly caring for them while we are out on the walk. I have many years of pet sitting and walking experience with neighbors, professors , and friends. Sometimes I have established relationships with the dogs ahead of time and others, I have a short period of time to introduce myself to the dog before walking them. Either way though, safety and reliability remain top priorities.
