    Growing up, there was always a dog in my house- if not a small pack! I have years of personal experience with puppies, seniors, extra large breeds, tiny breeds, and everything in between. I truly do not have a preference, nor aversion, towards any breed, age, or activity level. Beyond my personal experience, I also have previous job experience with pet sitting and walking dogs while their owners have been away for days/weeks at a time.

    Hi, my name is Stacey. I recently adopted a cute pit lab mix and love her A LOT. We love to go on long walks, hikes, play and go to dog parks - all things I hope to do with your dog (if you feel comfortable allowing those). If you just want your dog to play in your house or yard, we can do that too!

    “Your pets can enjoy our farm while your gone!”

    Hi! I’m Kaitlyn. I live on a farm here in Mechanicsville MD. We have a fully fenced (large) front yard, and 3 fenced runs at are over 1/2 acre in size. Additionally we have a large house and allow pets freedom inside if the owner gives us permission based on the pets behavior. I have training from multiple places in training dogs and excel in obedience work and leash work. I own, breed, and train German shepherds at my farm as well. We have horses, chickens and plenty more critters that make for great exposure opportunists for your pet. We also have a bazillion balls outside! My husband helps me with all of our drop offs and while I work till 5, he is home much sooner so no dogs are left kenneled for excessive periods of time! Any other information please don’t hesitate to ask!

    Hi, my name is Kimie! To start off getting to know me, all I can say I truly believe in doing what you love. The past 6 years have been amazing due to working in Aquatics and fitness. Whether I’m teaching big/little people to swim or dedicating time early in the morning to the gym overall the key is, do I love what I’m doing? Well yes! Yes I am, but not as happy as when I’m home with my two rescue pups. Having and being around fur babies has just been apart of my day to day and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a firm believer in positive reinforcement and praise. If I sound like a good fit for your pooch, please feel free to reach out! I’d love to meet you both!!!

    Hi, I’m MK! Dogs have always had a place in my family and my heart. I have been caring for my mom’s Labradoodle, Thea, since she looked like a tiny stuffed animal. When I can’t get my Thea fix, I volunteer as a dog walker at BARC Shelter. Here, I’ve walked (and fallen in love with) dozens of pups of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments. I can’t wait meet your dog!

    Hello! I am a recent graduate from the US Naval Academy looking to walk some dogs before moving on to the next phase of my life. I have had 2 dogs myself and have volunteered in an SPCA. I’d love to take your dog on a walk, or even a run, if you’d like!

    “Woofs up?”

    Hey there. My name is Elizabeth. I have two awesome pups of my own at home. I understand it’s important for them to get out during the day, and that for a lot of people that can be tricky with work. That’s why I’ve been doing dog walking for close to 4 years now. I just graduated college, so I’m starting it back up. This job is perfect because I get to meet pups, and be outside.
