    “I can’t wait to meet your kids...I mean dogs :)”

With my year of experience in working closely in a kennel free doggie daycare, I have learned so much about all kinds of dogs that makes me super qualified to take care of your pups :) I can’t wait to meet your doggos!

    I am an experienced, enthusiastic, and energetic dog sitter and walker. I’ve worked with pups ranging from timid toy poodles to hyperactive pit bulls, and I love getting to know each dog as a unique individual with their own needs and preferences. I am up for long, athletic walks to tucker out your furry friend, but I am just as glad to take your baby on a leisurely stroll around the block. I look forward to meeting your pup soon!

    Growing up, my family bred and raised dogs. I have always loved them and wanted a herd of my own. Now I have 3 wild rescues and wouldn’t trade them for anything. I have experience walking, sitting and boarding dogs of all breeds and temperaments, as well as over 10 years working in healthcare.

    “The walk is our favorite accessory.”

    I am an apparel designer who finally adopted a fur baby of her own. I have been walking and taking care of other people’s fur babies two years. I’m generally available Mon-Fri after 5:30 and Weekends all day. Trust that, your furry family member will be in good hands when they're walking with me. I treat every pup with respect and love as if they were my own. I am thankful to anyone that allows me the pleasure to hang with their pup. I hope that you choose me for your next walk!

    “Who let the dogs out?”

    Hi! My name is Catherine and I am in college at the moment. I plan to have a career as a PA. I focus most of my time on school, soccer, and weight lifting. I love being active and I love having a pal to be active with. My whole life I have loved dogs. There has not been a dog I have met that I do not like and can not wait to meet yours! I have my own lab puppy that I love to death

    My name is Natalie, I'm a 24 year old PA student. I've grown up in a family that loves animals, between my 4 cousins and myself we have 14 dogs and 3 cats! I'm the proud dog mom of a Bichon-Poodle named Lucky and a Golden-doodle puppy named Koda. In high school I volunteered at the local humane society where I learned how to properly and safely walk dogs of all different sizes and temperaments. In college I took care of my friends' dogs whenever they went out of town.

There are water and waste stations, along with benches and picnic tables for you to relax while your pup gets down to some serious playtime. Be aware that dogs must have visible evidence of a current rabies vaccination to enter the dog park.
