“Let’s go on an adventure!”

I have always loved dogs, all breeds! I have had doggie companions as long as I can remember. I have worked with dogs of all different personalities. I have transported them across the country and back. I believe that they’re all special little souls with their own personalities and needs. I view getting to spend time with these wonderful little beings as a fun adventure. I look forward to meeting and spending time with these wonderful new friends.

Hi, my name is Kathryn and I love dogs. I grew up taking care of them and would love to meet yours. I currently have a cat, but he doesn’t like going on walks. I really like this job because I can get my “puppy fix” and I’m getting into better shape with the best exercise partners there are. This is my only job, so I have gotten very good at what I do and can devote my time to the pups. I go the extra mile to make them happy, including playtime and cuddles.

I was told I would dig up all the rocks when I was a kid so the worms wouldn't crash. My love and care for creatures and animals has always consumed my life! I have always been the go-to when friends and family need their babies taken care of for short and long term. I just lost my 75lb. baby boy who I had the pleasure of spoiling for the last ten years. Because of him I not only gained experience with big dogs, but I have become more in tune with animals in the way a mother does with kids. I will love and protect your baby as I did my Nino.

“Onward Balto!...--now your leash is tangled... :)”

Arf! *wags* Hello, fellow human. My name is Cody and I'm an experienced care handler for animals of all different shapes and sizes. Woof! By combining my three favorite things; dogs, the outdoors, and occasional acapella serenades, I might subject your fur baby to an assortment of random musical culture and enriching exercise. Consider this the private school of dog walking.
