“Extreme Animal Lover! Hug your furbaby!”

Hi! I am a huge dog lover (currently have 2 Goldens) who walks my dogs every day (unless it's raining hard or there's a severe wind chill). I love all dogs. I do not walk dogs on prong collars. I prefer a harness or gentle leader. I am a school teacher and have lived in my home for about 15 years. I've hired dog walkers in the past myself (when my dogs were puppies and needed to get out more on work days). I am the person who, when not with my dogs, stops to meet other dogs along my way.

“Looking for a trustworthy dog walker/pet-sitter?”

I spend most of my time caring for animals, whether they are my own or animals that I work with. I enjoy every second of it. As a teenager, I volunteered for my local animal shelter in Texas. It was a wonderful learning experience and showed the importance of standing up for those who don’t have a voice. The impact of that volunteer experience led me to become vegan. I’ve been an animal activist for the past 10 years, and it’s been a rewarding and eye-opening journey.

Hello! I've loved dogs ever since I was a little girl but because of my family's living situation i have never been able to own one myself. Because of this I am filled with love and knowledge for an animal that has no outlet. I do own 3 cats and a bunch of fish wich receive much love and spoilage. Hopefully with the profits I make from walking I will be able to continue to spoil them!
