Aloha, I’m Taylor and I have been around dogs and cats my whole life. Dogs hold a special part of my heart. I grew up with Lily the Black Lab, Kona the Rottweiler, and Ginger the Basenji. Kona was my best friend in the whole world! I started sitting my neighbors’ dog when I was 14 and since then I have regularly house-sat and walked many of my family and friends’ dogs. My experience ranges from a single walk to watching four dogs for two weeks. I hope I can help with you and your pets’ needs!
