Hello. My name is Cathy and I am, by nature, an individual who is passionate about caring for people and animals who need good, quality care. My adoration for animals, especially dogs, began when I was "knee high to a grasshopper," and it has never wavered over the years. In my family, my canine babies outnumber my human ones by a score of five to two. We have two chihuahuas, a hairless Chinese crested, a miniature dachshund, and the goofiest golden doodle in the world. We, also, have two cats and a leopard gecko named Mikey! In our home, our animals are treated like family members, not pets. If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to treat your pooches like an extended member of the family, then I am the dog walker for you. If you have special requests/instructions, then you can rest assured that your wishes will be carried out each and every time without fail. I will treat your dogs the same as I do my own, and they are pretty pampered, if I must say so myself.While I realize how difficult it can be to trust someone else to care for your animals, I have years of experience caring for both animals and people in various situations/environments, so you can rest assured that they are in the best hands...other than your own.

I love dogs. I've had dogs all my life...normally more than one at a time. It is so much fun to walk and play with them and experience their wonderful individual personalities. Whenever my wife and I are at the mall we always stop to play with the puppies at the pet store. Plus, when we see someone in our neighborhood walking a dog we always stop to say hello which is why we always have dog treats in our car.

Hi I’m Linda! Since as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a dog lover. If I’m missing at a party or gathering, it’s usually because I found a dog and I’m hanging out with them. My babies are 9 & 11 and are my world. I have been pet sitting and helping to walk dogs since I was strong enough to hold a leash. I can’t wait to meet your dog!
