“I’m that friend that points out all the dogs.”

My name is Lauren and I love dogs! I have lots of experience walking all types of dogs from my work at animal shelters! I know how to handle high-energy dogs, dogs that don't like other dogs, fearful dogs, puppies in training, blind dogs, and dogs that need a little help. I wanted to be outside more, spend more time with animals, and get paid to do so. I missed the animals at the animal shelters. Then it dawned on me, dog walking on demand! I look forward to meeting your furry family member!

“Puppies. Seniors. Special Needs. No problem!”

-I will be wearing a mask- I've had the pleasure of taking care of all sorts of breeds, and special needs pups, young and old. I normally carry some of my own stuff with me, like treats, leads and bags. So if you happen to be missing something, it shouldn't be a problem. I have no problem cleaning up after dogs, and if they need something special, make a note of it, and I'll handle it. I love all dogs.-A little note, because I am a small woman, I do have someone walking with me to be safe.-
