“Dog Time is Happy Time”

Hello! I'm Angie and I‘m the ultimate dog lover. I’ve had dogs my entire life, and spent many hours dog-sitting for others. I currently have three dogs - 100 pound pit mix, 40 pound springer spaniel/lab mix and an 11 pound chihuahua/papillon mix - so I have experience with all different sizes and personalities. I’ve raised them all from puppy stage, so I also have a lot of experience with each doggy stage.

“Walking your best friend is an honor.”

Hello! I have worked with shelter dogs my whole life and I am very comfortable with their individual quirks. I currently have 3 roommates: a mixed breed, a 3-legged shar-pei, and a once homeless street beagle and they are my best friends. I would do anything for them and I promise to treat yours with the same respect. I am quite familiar with the importance that dogs provide the family and I promise to give your fur baby the same love I give my own. I can’t wait to meet your pup!

“Dedicated dog lover!”

I'm a life-long dog lover, and I spent last summer caring for them at a doggie day care. I often spent 14 hours a day there, making sure dogs were fed, walked and happy! Big, small, they're all just puppies to me!

Hi, my name is Ben. I live near downtown Columbus and I own a small business in Upper Arlington. I have two dogs, Samwise the basset hound and Bellatrix the pug. I grew up on a small farm in Montana, spending most of my youth working with animals (dogs in particular). I have cared for many dogs in my life and I have pet-sat many others. From pit bulls and german shepherds to papillons and chihuahuas, I know and love all types of dogs. As a small business owner and lifetime dog keeper, I understand the importance of reliability, responsibility, patience, and care for your best friend. I look forward to bringing these traits with me each and every visit. I can't wait to meet your dog!

“Let’s go for a walk!”

Hey! I’m Stephanie and I can’t wait to meet your dog! I’m a full time wedding photographer with my boyfriend, but that leaves me with tons of time during the week to have fun with your nuggets! I volunteered at a shelter as a kid and have loved dogs for as long as I can remember. I have one rescue nugget of my own, but he’s very understanding with my love for all dogs and doesn’t get too jealous. I have experience watching and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes - including a pack of 5 Danes!
