“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!

“Patient and energetic dog lover”

My name is Mason, and I live in Florence with my pit mix Beatrice. I adopted Bea when she was about two-years-old, anxious, and entirely unsocialized. Since then I have put countless hours into training and rehabilitating her, and that experience has given me the patience to look after other dogs as well. Bea has helped me become understanding and flexible with how I interact with all dogs, which makes walking and training them even more enjoyable. I look forward to meeting your furry friends!
