“I’d love to walk your dog!”

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I'm an artist and I love animals, have since I was a kid. I've always been told that I am a calm, kind, patient and observant person. Because of that, I feel like it’s always been easy for me to understand animals and get along with them. I'm currently working with a group of animators to create a short animated film and studio. I've spent a bit too much time indoors lately, so I'd love to get out more, and to do it while walking a dog would be a big plus!

I pride myself on being trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness as I would my own.

Hello! I grew up in Connecticut, and had a wonderful dog named Quincy who was the love of my life. I regularly volunteered at animal shelters and at a stable, so I have lots of experience with animals. I have been to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah twice, where I fed, socialized, walked, and cleaned up after their dogs as well as other animals. I have also volunteered as a walker at their New York adoption programs. I am responsible and always want to do what is best for you and your dog. I adore animals and greatly look forward to meeting your beloved pet!
