    I’m Juli. I have been walking dogs for over ten years and as a pet parent I know we all want the best possible care for our pets. As someone with experience with all sizes and many breeds, I understand all dogs require different approaches with the same level of care. Dogs are not just pets, they are family. I hope to be there to lend a hand in taking care of your furry family members.

    Hi, I'm Demetrius! What can I say, I LOVE DOGS...I mean I love all animals but dogs are just the top! I've had dogs my entire life, from little fluffy white dogs to muscle bound pit-bulls. My most recent, an English Bulldog named Hollywood, unfortunately passed after 11 amazing years and I'm without a pooch for the moment. I hope you allow me the pleasure of taking care of your important family member while you are at work or away and I will treat him or her as if they were my own!

    “I’ll love your babies like they were mine!”

    I am a great choice for your dog because I will love on your dog like they are my baby. I will not lose my patience, I don’t ever yell. I am loving, kind, I have years of experience, steady past clients and great referrals and I take real joy and pleasure out of this. I stop dog owners in my own personal life just to pet and interact with dogs because it’s just attached to the core of the fiber of my being

    I love animals and especially dogs! I grew up with a beagle and have been walking dogs for neighbors and family friends since I was in middle school. I have also done pet sitting where I stayed at an owner's house and was completely responsible for their pet's care while they were away. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your dog are satisfied!

    Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.
