Hi there, I'm Jeanine, mom to two fur-babies, Roscoe and Lira. Being an avid adopter, I've worked through many issues, ran many miles (at 5 AM!), and made terrific memories with my own pups over 30+ years. As my boy has gotten older and slowed down considerably, and my girl...well...let's just say moving from one end of the couch to the other is her idea of exercise, I find that I'm now the one in need of long walks to burn off my extra energy. Hopefully that creates a win-win-win situation for you, your pup, and myself.I've managed many different personalities throughout the years with one common thread; a tired pup is a good pup!

I have been walking dogs for over 4 years now. I always make your dogs safety a priority, along with their comfort, emotional and physical well being. I love giving the best walk I can according to your dogs fitness level, I can even take your dog on a jog (weather permitting) or just a leisurely stroll. I always give extra time to settle them back home with refreshed water, treats or meals, practice a few commands, hugs, playtime and babytalk! l look forward to meeting your dog!

My name is Ian and I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. I grew up with dogs and cats my entire life. Currently the family dog stays with my parents down south, and she is a black Lab mix coming up to 12 years now. My early teens I ran a neighborhood pet care service with my brother. We would walk our neighbors dogs and cats, as well as feed and bathe them. We also boarded an old terrier every now and then for an elderly couple. I'm currently an actor and I love animals and exercise, so this opportunity seemed perfect as a source of income.

“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

““WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?” I did! :)”

Hi, my name is Anastasia! I have 3 dogs: a tea cup pomchi and 2 huskies, so I can handle large hyper active dogs just as well as tiny fragile ones that require being extra careful. I do walks, daycare and boardings - if your dog is friendly, they will have a blast playing in a large fully fenced yard. Growing up with dogs since early age I barely spent a day in my life without them by my side, I’m not intimidated neither by breeds nor sizes.I am ready to spend some quality time with your dog :)

“Must hug all the dogs!”

I’ve been dog walking for several years now with over 1300 walks. I have walked pups as small as a rat terrier to as giant as a mastiff. I walk dogs with anxiety and dogs that are aggressive towards humans & other dogs. I have a few pups that I administer medication to. I take what I do very seriously and treat each dog as if they were my own. I’ve never had any incidents (knock on wood)! I have 3 dogs of my own, a Shia Inu mix and the love of my life, a sweet pitbull and a goofy/giant Golden.

Dog Walking in Cliffwood

Cliffwood may be a small town, but its beachy, laid back vibe makes it so appealing to many. With several green areas to explore both in and around Cliffwood, this is a destination that your pooch will really enjoy.

There are a couple of parks in Cliffwood that your pup will love. The largest is Guisti Park, which is home to a large and a small sports field, as well as a basketball court. There is a paved walking path that runs in between these facilities, giving you and Fido the pawfect vantage point to check out all of the action going on in the park.

Midland Park is also worth a visit, as this neighborhood park lies at the heart of Cliffwood. There are two basketball courts here, as well as a softball field and a playground. The patch of woodland that surrounds this park is always popular with dogs, and you and Fido are bound to meet quite a few other pups here. Dogs are allowed to use both of these parks, but you will need to make sure that your pooch is always kept on a lead, and that you have doggie bags and drinking water to hand.

Although small in size, Cliffwood boasts so much character and charm, making this an idyllic town in which to spend some time with your dog.
