“Dog lover with 20+ breed experience”

I'm Julia, and I love dogs! I'd love to take your pup for a quick walk around the neighborhood to burn off some energy or spend time with them while you're away for a sitting or boarding! I treat every dog as if they were my own, since as a student, I'm not in a place to have my own to care for right now. My customer service background, attention to detail and genuine care for all animals will ensure that you and your pup will have a great experience.

“Love long walks on the beach (do sidewalks count?)”

Hi! My name is Tori. I am a law school student who is currently working from home and would love to have a furry friend to keep me company while also keeping my activity level up! I have grown up with dogs of multiple sizes ranging from a Toy Poodle to a Golden Retriever. I just finished raising a German Shepard puppy (Luke) before he moved to Florida to live with my sister so as you could say, I’m pupper deprived.
