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!

Hi, I'm Sandy! I live in Montgomery Village, MD, and will be walking dogs in the Gaithersburg/Rockville/Germantown area.

I have been a dog-owner (my border-collie, J.J.) and dog-sitter as a teenager for many personal and family friends in the Baltimore County area. After graduating college in 2013, I began a recurring dog-walk arrangement with an old roommate for both a recently rescued German Shepherd (Storm) and a Yorkie (Stella), and have been happily working as a professional dog-walker and sitter ever since. I love meeting new dogs and making them happy with walks, playing, running, feeding, and having fun!

“Experienced and Excited to Meet New Furry Friends!”

Hi my name is Taylor and I am an artist. For most of my life I’ve grown up with animals. My love for animals even inspired me to stop eating meat and made my love for them grow immensely. My love for dogs began with my chow chow Shinu as well as when I aided my nana in rescuing her cocker spaniel Buster and throughout the years witnessed him become a loving dog who reciprocates the love poured into him. I guarantee to treat your dogs with nothing but respect, love, and companionship!

“Experienced, caring, and highly skilled pet owner”

The first dog I ever had was when I was 6 months old and we were best friends for 13 short years. Due in part to my love for all animals I spent many years in the 4-H program and even spent time in dog obedience. I specialize in teaching low-level tricks (paw, kiss, hug, etc) and improving socialization. I'm also trained in emergency first aid (both pet and human) and have experience with stray/aggressive dogs. I'd love to meet your 4 legged friend and see how I could help you with them!
