    “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.

    “Turning your K9 experience into a K10!”

    Hi! My name is Joey and I live in San Francisco with my goofy dachshund, Tosh. I've grown up around dogs and for the last couple years, I've volunteered at the SFSPCA, where I'm trained to socialize and work with almost every range of dog - including puppies, newcomers, and doggies on the mend! Can't wait to meet you and your fur baby!

    “Experienced dog walker, ready to meet your pup!”

    Meeting and walking your dogs is the most fulfilling experience. I have fallen in love with so many dogs in this job. Sharing little tidbits about your pups behavior and sending photos involves you in our walk. Thank you all for trusting me with your dogs and for the text interactions when you enjoy a video or photos. I love this job!

    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!

    “Big and small I can walk them all!”

    I have grown up with mostly larger breed dogs. I love exercising and can walk up to 3 dogs at one time! I have been taking care of and walking dogs for family and friends since I was 15 and have no trouble with unruly canines!

    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.

    Around 15 miles away from Rockford, you'll find Hillcrest Dog Park, where your pooch can have a ball! One of the best features that this park offers for your pooch is separately fenced areas for small and large doggos. Seasonally, you'll have access to fresh water -- in the colder months, it's recommended that you bring your own. If you forget your poop baggies, you will find some provided in the park. The human visitors can rest up on the park's benches and chill with their pets in a mostly shaded area. No need to worry about a membership or providing proof of vaccinations -- this park is completely free!

    Covell Dog Park is 16 miles away from Rockford. Pups can enjoy a one-acre off-leash area here. Although the dog park is securely fenced, there aren't separate areas for differently sized pooches, so if your pooch doesn't play well with dogs of all shapes and sizes, avoid this park. The ground is mixed with grass and wood chips, and in the summer, the staff puts out small kiddie pools where doggies can dip their paws! The park has a hose to rinse off your mucky mutt, and there's also parking nearby. Bags are only provided sometimes, so don't forget to bring some with you just in case.

    Seventeen miles away from Rockford is another furrific dog park that you won't want to miss: Wyoming Dog Park. This park is most suitable for residents and frequent visitors, since it requires a membership to visit. If you're just passing through, this park probably isn't the best option. Your membership will grant you access to separate areas for small and large puppers, drinking water, and poop baggies. (Note that the park sometimes runs out of baggies, so bring some just in case.) For playing, there is a big pile of sand where doggies can dig, climb, and have fun. Plenty of shade and picnic tables with benches are great amenities for the pet parents.

    One of the top ten doggie parks in North America, Shaggy Pines Dog Park, is located just around 20 miles away from Rockford in South Forest Hills. The park is an absolute doggie heaven featuring 20 acres of fenced areas where fur-babies can frolic around off-leash. Water fountains are placed around the fenced area, and there is a large, fun lake where doggies can cool down and swim! In this park, you can find plenty of toys scattered around and poop baggies for cleaning up your pooch's mess. There are also trails that you can explore with your pup! Make sure to look up the park's rules and regulations before visiting.
