“Past Veterinary Assistant, experienced handler”

Hello, I am Sarah and I can’t wait to meet your pet! Growing up, our home was full of pets as my mom was a vet tech, and I worked as a vet assistant at the local clinic for many years in addition to raising/socializing kittens and rescue pups. I love being able to take a 2-3 mile walk in the afternoons for my lunch break. I am a very experienced handler, know how to read animals well and am able to easily adjust to make your pet comfortable.

I have always been an animal lover and over the years I have owned many different pets. I currently have one 6 year old guinea pig named Riza Lin, an 11 month old kitten named Sammy and also an 11 month old Jack Russell/Retriever Mix named Sophie. When I was in High School I use to volunteer at The Humane Society of West Michigan. I worked mostly with the cats but did some dog walking. I had to leave there but have always wanted to go back and finish my dog walking. I have also walked family and friends dogs as well and I enjoy anytime I can spend with animals. My family sometimes calls me the animal whisperer because of the way animals respond to me. Also my job keeps me quite active and I am no stranger to the cold or warm weather changes of Michigan. I would love a chance to meet your furbabies and spend some time with them.

Hi there, my name is Kendra, and I would love to meet your dog! I've been an animal enthusiast my entire life. I grew up having dogs (first a cocker spaniel, then a shih tzu), and I currently have the best dog in the world, Phoebe (a lab mix). I have years of experience dog sitting for both large and small dogs, including multiple (up to 4) dogs at a time, and I've never met a dog I didn't like :) About me: I am currently studying computer engineering at GVSU and loving it! That said, I am in computer labs a lot, so I am always looking for opportunities to get outside and be active, which is why I LOVE walking dogs.

“A walker, a runner, and a great fetch player.”

I started dog walking/sitting when I was 16. I have worked with newfoundlands to chihuahuas and everything in between. I have stayed with animals overnight, and my overnight duties included feeding, walking, giving medicine, and making sure the dogs were happy. I love working with animals and being outside.

Ada's very own off-leash dog park, Shaggy Pines Dog Park, happens to have been voted one of the "20 Best Dog Parks in the Country," and you and your dog will both love it. There are more than 20 acres of space for your dog to enjoy, and in that space, there are several different sections. You'll find designated "dry dog" areas, so you don't have to deal with muddy paws, as well as a swimming pool for dogs, a small dog area, a doggy sand mountain for climbing and digging, and so much more! You'll need a membership to visit this park, but the fee is more than worth it to enjoy all of the park's features. There are also water stations, rinse stations, seating areas, free coffee and popcorn for pet parents, and a one-mile trail.
