Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now. That's why I would love to take your pup for walks around the neighborhood or at a nearby park. I loved taking my former dog for walks on local hiking trails and to the dog park for playtime. Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

“Always put the dog first”

Hey there! My name is Christina, and my life has involved animals for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I was unable to have a pet dog, but that didn’t stop me from having a variety of other pets— birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, frogs, etc. Nowdays, I volunteer my time working with local rescue dogs at Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue. I’m in my second year of doing this. I also spend a lot of time with horses and am in my tenth year of riding!

“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.
