Hi, my name is Jen and I have been a dog owner for years. I love playing with them and seeing their tails wagging when I come home.

Hi I'm an experienced dog walker and sitter available for all types of walks. I have had my own dog Bella for 15 years who I trained with my siblings and I have enjoyed sitting and walking neighbors dogs including Cocker Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, and Bichon Fraises. My priority is to make sure your dog is taken care of and getting time to be active and outside. However, I am open to any suggestions you have for the walk. I previously attended Lehigh University but I am taking time away to transfer schools. I work in the afternoon but have a fairly free morning for walks.
