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.

I go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. I have over 12 years experience fostering dogs with special medical needs so giving medications or IV fluids is not an issue. I only feed holistic food and treats and purchase toys made in the USA. I will treat your pets like they were my own. I love to exercise and run so if your dog is active, I am the sitter for you. My own pets are very friendly to other dogs I can separate your dogs from my own. My cats and caged pets are kept away from the dogs so interaction is not an issue if your dog does not like them. I have had dogs and cats for over 40 years and have excellent references from adopters and current clients.

“Responsible | Trustworthy | Positive”

I am a recent law school graduate eager to spend time outside walking dogs to take breaks from work. My family has owned several dogs over my life, but I unfortunately had to leave them behind when I moved to this area from Kansas for school. Because I miss the dogs so much and need every excuse to take breaks, I am ready to walk or dog-sit your dog regularly or on a last-minute basis.
