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.

Hello, My name is Ellen Rice and I am very excited to be a dog walker! I have loved dogs all my life. In fact, I grew up with a Labrador retriever and a labradoodle. I am comfortable with all breeds and enjoy getting to know dogs with different personalities. I have experience dog sitting and dog walking, so neither of those are new territory for me. I am a fun, active person who will keep your dog happy and healthy!

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!

“It’s the best gig in the world!”

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. I currently work as a manager at a doggie daycare and boarding facility. Meeting and having relationships with sweet furry friends while their humans are away is nothing but rewarding.

Elmwood sits above the Mississippi River and neighbors New Orleans to the east. Citizens of Elmwood share the river with their neighbor New Orleanians and get the best of both cities. They can enjoy the Mardi Gras season and parades, or escape the noise and take peaceful strolls along the banks of the Mississippi. Elmwood not only shares the river with neighbors, but also the rich southern heritage that makes Louisiana a great place to eat and sight-see! The neighborhood is part of Jefferson Parish and represents in the areas of Southern "hos-pet-tality!"

Pet owners love that there are 19 veterinarians and 15 pet shops in the greater Jefferson Parish area. Here, you'll have quick access to everything your dog will need. Alongside this, there are also nine restaurants that allow dogs to sit in the outside eating area next to their owners. Whether you're craving pizza or Creole cuisine, you'll always find something delicious you can share with Fido! Nature lovers also find solace in Elmwood. There are four on-leash parks, and the Mississippi River Trail offers great outdoor spots and places to explore with your pup!

Grab the leash and your beads and check out the pet-friendly happenings in Elmwood, Louisiana!
