“Paws-itively delighted to walk your sweet doggo!”

Raised alongside large and energetic dogs, I have learned to comfortably handle dogs of any size— and I love them all! I'm a medical student raising a two-year old, 60 lb rescued hound-mix. I love taking the pups to nearby parks and am always looking for fun new places for the dogs to explore. Although primarily a dog person, I'm also a cat person (can't you be both?), so if you are looking for someone to check in on all of your furry friends, I'm your girl!
