Hi I'm Will! I walk dogs full-time and it's great! I've walked and sat dogs of all breeds and types from 18 years to 2 months, from South African mastiffs to Yorkies and everything in between. Active and energetic dogs are my favorite to walk, and I've met so many repeat clients here in New Orleans. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me, I look forward to providing puptastic service!

Hi, my name is Rachel! I love animals and the outdoors. I've worked with many different breeds and sizes of dogs in a veterinary and kennel setting, so I'm comfortable handling most any dog. I've also raised and trained Destro, a Jack Russell Terrier, so I know how important it is to you that your buddy is getting the quality of care he or she deserves. I want to treat your dog as though they're just as special as my own.

As a young college student I started pet sitting for my neighbors. I was pet sitting for 10 years already when a dear friend started a pet sitting service on the north shore; he asked me if I’d be interested in working for his sitting service, and I was thrilled. I began working as a professional pet sitter in 2002 and I can’t remember a more rewarding job. It's an honor to have been gifted with a career in pet sitting. I absolutely love caring for pets; they always have a special way of making each day more memorable.

“I’ve walked and caredfor over 500 dogs as a walker”

Ive spent most of my life caring for dogs. My first dog was a boxer that I had for 15 years. I used to also breed Neapolitan Mastiffs with my brother who is a dog trainer and competes in dog shows. They are huge dogs and a lot of responsibility which taught me patience and love for dogs. I’ve spent the last 2 years in New York walking and caring for over 500 different dogs. I’ve trained puppies and older dogs. I look forward to walking your dog and can assure you he is in good hands. Thank you!

Hi! I'm Jake, avid dog lover and owner since childhood. Grew up in a house that had a Rottweiler mix, followed by labs that we loved so much that we bred them. The first pup was my first dog that I owned. I now own a 4 year old Husky mix that I rescued and take care of my parents' Rottweiler and their Chihuahua mix when they're away. Love all dogs.

All my life I have had at least one, if not more, family dogs in my home. I started doing dog-walking and pet-sitting in 2014 when I moved to Dallas and instantly fell in love. Meeting and having relationships with sweet furry friends while their humans are away has been nothing but rewarding.

Dog Walking in Destrehan

Destrehan is an area of Louisiana with a population of more than 11,000 people. The area is best known for the Destrehan Plantation, which was once a major producer of indigo and sugarcane, and it's only 25 miles from New Orleans. Today, the Destrehan Plantation is a historic site that draws tourists from all over to take in the architectural elements of the mansion and to learn more about its history. Destrehan is also home to many families and people who commute to bigger cities for work. Dog owners and those who enjoy the outdoors will love living in an area with such a warm climate.

There may not be an off-leash dog park in Destrehan, but with its proximity to big cities like New Orleans, you're never more than a short drive from a great park! The Audubon neighborhood of western New Orleans is just over 20 miles from Destrehan. This is where you'll find The Dog Levee, a wide open off-leash space that isn't fenced in. This park features a paved walking trail that leads to a swimming hole where Fido can swim and splash to his heart's content -- just be sure to bring a towel! If you're looking for a fenced off-leash space, fear not, because there are plenty of those near Destrehan, too!
