Hi, I'm Tyler! I can't remember a time when there weren't dogs running around my house as a kid. I've taken care of my Miniature Australian Shepherd Izzy for almost 10 years now. A couple years back, our family was fortunate enough to adopt Izzy's niece, Tami! I think dogs deserve exercise and I'm happy to help make that happen!

What makes me a great choice to care for your fur baby is that I love dogs! I believe that dogs need a healthy Dog Walker/Sitter because I will be consistent and playful with your fur baby. Now that I am in college I never have time to see my two pit-bulls at home. I believe that this will be a great opportunity for me to be able to have that reconnection with dogs through your pet. I would greatly enjoy spending time with them!

When I was 5 years old my family got two dogs, who became the two animals that taught me responsibility. They also inspired my love for animals, and now I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University. I have had volunteer experience at a dog and cat animal shelter, owned animals of a variety of species, and worked as a kennel technician and can comfortably administer various forms of medicine. My idea part time or temporary job is one outside and with animal which is why being a pet walker/sitter is perfect.

“Let’s pack snacks and make tracks!”

I’ve always loved dogs! I’ve had a lot of experience with learning to train my personal dogs. I volunteered at a local shelter in my city, and I often foster dogs as well. I had to give emergency birth to two liters of puppies for an elderly neighbor and after the second one I paid to have her dog altered. My three boys are my life. They are the most perfect fur babies I could have been paired with! I can’t wait to me YOUR furmily! I have been away from Wag! for a long time, but I’m back!

When you're looking for something a little more intensive than a trip to the dog park around Lake Lure, consider visiting the Craggy Pinnacle Trail in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Black Mountain is just over 40 miles north of Lake Lure, and the trail is in the northernmost part of town. This beautiful trail is about a 1.4-mile hike that is only moderate in intensity. It's a lovely walk to do any time of year, but if you visit in June, you'll get to see the Catawba rhododendrum blooms. Your dog must be on a leash while they walk the trail with you.
