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!

Hi, I'm Chrissy and I love dogs! I've been a dog walker since the tender age of 8 when I was given the responsibility of walking our red, longhaired Dachshund. Ever since, I've walked dogs of all shapes and sizes, know what to do in different situations, always scan ahead, have thorough knowledge of dogs' body language and behavior, and enjoy the walks just as much as the dogs. I have doggy street smarts, experience, knowledge, and common sense. Dogs are my passion and it's been a dream of mine to work with dogs. I can't wait to ease your mind while you're away from home and let you know that your dog will be in good, precious hands!

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.
