“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!

Hello my name is Steven. I have been living with, and caring for all kinds of animals throughout my life. But dogs are my joy. I am freelance artist by profession, and dogs are one of my top subject matter. With my dad being an ex Dog show handler, judge and breeder, with 2 dogs of my own, not a day goes by where I don’t interact with a dog. I have been walking dogs professionally for about a year now. I have had several dog training classes. And I take them every few years to keep myself current. So I am looking forward to being able to getting to know your dog/pup and taking them for a walk.

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!
