    “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.

    Hello! My name is Kaci and I've been around dogs all my life. I do not currently own one however, due to apt regulations, so being a dog walker is a great alternative! My mother was a vet tech who taught me much about how to love and care for dogs, as well as handle them properly. I am available in Minneapolis, various areas, depending on where my second job has taken me that day. I look forward to meeting your furry friend, and establishing a new friendship!

    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.
