Hello! I'm avid dog lover, and previous owner of 3 very different dogs. I've owned a black Lab, a Rhodesian ridgeback mix, and a boxer. These dogs had various personalities, which allowed me to learn how to treat them specifically, and what to watch out for when caring for them and walking them. I hope I'm lucky enough to be able to walk your dog!

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.
