“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!

“You say “walk” and I say “how far? how long?””

I am a doctoral student with some extra time to commit to being healthy and active. Most humans are not available during the times of day that I am free, and so I hope to find some furry friends to accompany me on walks during the day. I love dogs for their dependability and companionship, and it is only fair that we humans show them the same respect. You can count on me to treat your friend with kindness and care, and to always be on time for them.

“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!

Hey, I'm Julia (pronounced who-Lee-Uh)! I've had dogs my whole life. With every glance at a dog, a willingness for bonding and trust is deeply embedded within my gaze. Sometimes, the sweet pup wants nothing to do with it and that is totally fine. My natural instinct is to convey my openness and availability. The unspoken is so beautiful! The non-verbal cues and boundaries that animals are able to communicate is never taken for granted when we're hanging out!
