    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!

    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!
