I am an avid dog lover and love walking outdoors for exercise, so why not combine the two. I have been volunteering at Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter(BARCS) since January of this year. I have transported more than 150 animals between BARCS and various veterinary clinics. I have also walked hundreds of dogs and participated in many dog play group sessions in which I have received valuable training from a professional dog trainer. I have experience with all types and sizes of dogs ranging from Chihuahua's to Great Dane. I make the safety of the Dog my top priority during any interaction with them.

I've been very fortunate to grow up with dogs. My first dog was a golden retriever named Murphy. I learned a lot about how to take care of dogs when I was a kid because of Murphy. And more importantly, I had a lot of fun! I now have a black lab named Hon. She recently turned 11, but still acts like a puppy .

Hi my name is Hunter! I'm an animal lover and pet owner myself. I know our pets are family and how important it is to make sure they're taken care of. I've had dogs in my home since as long as I can remember and know how to give them the love and respect they deserve. I've worked office jobs and long hour days, so I understand the need for a reliable person to be there. I would be happy and honored to get to care for your pup, big or small, old or young!
