I have spent most of my time walking & socializing dogs in an animal shelter, and caring for those we've saved in a privately run boarding facility. Working with animals is my greatest passion and their safety & well-being mean the most to me. I can't wait to spend time with your pet!

Hi there, Christopher here. For the past 14 years I've had the pleasure and unforgettable experience of taking care of two puffballs. As I'm sure you already know, it's something quite special and unique. So if you would kindly allow me the opportunity, I'd very much like to meet your own furry friend. I promise to be responsible and give them a fun and healthy walk. See you soon!
