Hello, my name is Emily Carranza. I am currently a senior at Quinnipiac University. I have been walking dogs since I was very young and have trained dogs for many years now. I absolutely love and enjoy getting some exercise in while doing something I love (walking dogs). I will always be attentive and caring of your pups when I take them for walks. I can ensure you that your dog is safe with me and will most likely get spoiled in the process! I promise that your dog will never be disappointed!

I’m Elaine, and I’m a friend to all the dogs! It seems everywhere I go, I’ll meet a dog that’ll want me to pet and play, and I’ll always happily oblige - it’s one of my favorite things in the world. Because I’m a flight attendant, I travel too often to have my own dog, so I am thrilled to be able to spend time with yours!

“Your dog’s safety is my priority!”

Hi! My name is Aena and I am a student at American University. I’m 19 years old and I absolutely LOVE dogs! Ever since a very young age, I’ve pleaded with my parents to get a dog and they haven’t allowed me to, so I found dog walking and dog sitting. It has been an amazing experience and satisfies my dream of having a dog. I am so excited to meet and take good care of your wonderful dog(s)!
