“You can't put a price on peace of mind!”

I have been walking and sitting pets in the Dayton area for about two years, and I have never had a major incident! I think what makes me a good walker is my level of patience and my calm demeanor. I maintain the position of pack leader, while still having fun. I have had experience with dogs of all sizes and ages, and even other furry/scaley friends! There's no pet I can't handle. I understand that not everyone has the time or ability to walk their dog every day, so I'm here to help!

I am a caregiver for an older woman that has dementia. They have recently cut my hours back so I am struggling financially. I already clean for a couple other older ladies but I would much rather be out walking with a pup than stuck cleaning. I have a 2 year old white Germam Shepherd named Cloud. When he was a puppy, he broke his back leg in a drainage grate in my backyard. I carried him with a harness to help him go potty. He was a runt in the litter and our vet thought he had brittle bones due to being the runt. They thought they were going to have to amputate his leg. Luckily, after a food change and regular check ups, you would never know my white blur ever had a broken leg... except he still squats to pee. Haha I love him so much!

“Someone you and your dog(s) can count on :)”

Hello! My name is Tara. I’ve owned dogs all of my life and cannot possibly imagine my life without one. Right now, I have two that are mixed breeds. I have dealt with plenty of breeds, big and small. I have also dealt with dogs that are calm and easy, as well as aggressive and might take a little longer to get used to me. I treat anyone’s dog like it is my own, and make sure they receive the proper love and care away from their owner, as they would with their owner.

“Your pup is your baby! Let me take good care!”

My name is Bria, my friends would refer to me as the Animal Enthusiast. From a young age, I have always been drawn to nature, insects, and of course, animals! Growing up, I was fortunate enough to experience camping, pet store shadowing, and volunteer work at local animal shelters. In college I rescued my wonderful Rottie named Roxie, who has shown me just what it means to be man's best friend! I cannot wait to meet your babies, and I hope we will develop lasting friendships on our fun walks!
