    “Puppy Love!!!”

    Hi, my name is Gene and I am a pet Dad to Buddy a 4.5 yr old Yorkie. Buddy is a rescue and has saved me as much as I have saved him. Pets are family and should be treated as such. Rest assured, if your pet is in my care, they will be treated as if I was in possession of your child. Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

    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!

    “Discovering New York one dog walk at a time.”

    Born and raised in Texas, moved to NYC Jan 2019. I’m dog (golden retriever) obsessed. I have 5+ years of working with dogs at a doggie day care now I’m full time as a nutrition consultant for a fresh food company here in NYC. I love all dog breeds but I especially have a soft spot for golden retrievers, rotties, Aussies, pugs, huskys, king Charlie’s, sheepadoodles, all mastiffs, and dachshunds. Let me walk your pup. If you want pictures throughout the walk let me know I’ll gladly provide those.

    Hi! My name is Baylee, I’ve been dog walking/pet sitting for about 3 years now! I absolutely love animals, I worked at Petsmart for a year, which was awesome! I treat every dog as if they’re my own, your pup will be in good hands! It doesn’t matter what breed/size your dog is, I’m accepting of all kinds.

    “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.

    My name is Hank. To say that I love dogs is an understatement. I have a passion for them. I often say that time spent with a dog is the best part of my day. Your dog will not just go for a walk, he or she will be out with a new friend.

    Meredith is an excellent dog-walker! Zoltan took to her immediately, and she knows what she is doing. She is very professional, walks at a brisk pace, and handled Zoltan very well. He is a grown pitbull mix and around 65 pounds and she had no problem walking him. We are going to try to book her again for all of his walks!
