Hey, I'm Allan. I live in Bucktown and am the doggie godfather to Oakley, an Alaskan Klee Kai and Marley, a Rat Terrier. I grew up taking care of my German Shpeherd, Scarlet taking her for long walks in the Boston area. I understand dog psychology quite well from playing and taking care of dogs in family environments my whole life. Man's best friends love to spend time outside and I do also. I walk and skateboard a lot so I have a good energy with all dogs.

I don't remember a time in my life when I haven't had a dog! My experience ranges from having dogs on a farm to my current urban life with my 13 year old boxer lab mix. I love to explore Minneapolis with an enthusiastic 4 legged friend!

“Kind and Dependable Caregiver”

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. 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.

I know you've never met me but you're dog will be glad they've gotten to. I've had dogs in my life since the very beginning and I've enjoyed my time with every one. I'm always willing to go out of my way to give your dog the experience you want it to have, because that's what I would want for mine. I look forward to getting to meet your four legged friend.
