“Live, Laugh, Ruff!”

Hello! My name is Ashley. I am a proud (doggie) Mom to Arbor - my 5 month old Border Collie & Australian Shepard mix. Arbor is very lucky to have 3 sisters( my parent's doggies) nearby to spend tons of time playing with and I care for them often. Not only have I always been lucky to have a dog, I also have experience boarding, running a doggy day care and walking dogs. I feel SO lucky to be able to work with doggies for a living and I look forward to meeting yours!

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.
