Spending time with doggies is one of my very favorite things to do. I love the fun and simplicity of a stroll with a dog, and getting to know each dog’s distinct vibe. Dogs always bring a smile to my face and as corny as it may sound, I want to show them how much I appreciate them!!

I love dogs!! I have three shelter dogs and have been dog sitting for friends for a few years now. My favorite past time is to take my dogs to the dog park and try not to fall in love with every dog I meet. I am college bound and am looking for an enjoyable way to earn money for my schooling.

I am a young professional / recent graduate and I absolutely love all kinds of dogs. I really enjoy spending time outdoors and think this would be an amazing side position for me. Not being in a situation that would allow me to adopt my own dog, this is a perfect alternative to spend some quality time with awesome pups!

Hello! I have owned at least one dog for the last 17 years. I have had dogs as small as a Shih Tzu to a Goldendoodle. I recently gave my Goldendoodle to a neighbor who has a door with separation anxiety, our dogs became friends and once we realized how much she helped him I decided to do a good deed. Along with taking care of my own dogs, I have also helped to take care of dogs belonging to family, friends and friends.
