Hi! I'm Sarah. I absolutely love dogs and love spending time exercising outdoors, so the opportunity to take your pup for a walk is a win-win! Most of my experience with dogs comes from the rescue dogs that I foster. I've had the privilege to work with a wonderful local rescue for the past year, and have helped five sweeties find their forever homes. Friends and family have always regarded me as their go-to person for dog and pet sitting, and I'm very grateful for all the fantastic dogs I've been able to care for over the years.

“Need a break? I’ll walk your dog!”

Hi all! I have been a dog owner for the last 15 years and I have loved all the dogs that I have come across. I have always had either a poodle or a goldendoodle in my household. I have always been overly excited when I see dogs because they just brighten up my day. Walking dogs is something that I have been doing for years, so I feel that I have the hang of things, from small dogs to the really big dogs. I have no problem walking then in all sorts of weather conditions and places.Dogs are great!

I have never met a dog I didn't want to play with! Always willing and ready to go for long walks with a pup. I had a Great Pyrenees for 14 years growing up and she unfortunately just passed so I'm missing seeing a dog everyday! I played basketball at northeastern here in Boston so running around and playing fetch is not gonna be a problem at all.
