I would be honored to walk your pup! My name's Jenn; I'm a dog enthusiast currently living in Lancaster with my husband & our husky mix, Jackson. I've grown up with German Shepherds and Labs my whole life, and have puppy sat for all kinds. I've found that I'm most happy and at peace when in the presence of dogs. I'm also a singer, so if your dog is left humming a new tune I wrote for him or her during our stroll, it's on me! Thank you for your trust and I hope to meet your pet very soon!

My name is Julie and I have lived in Lancaster County my entire life. I love all sorts of animals and love walking dogs. I did not have any pets as a child, so I started walking the dogs in my neighborhood for their owners and loved every minute of it. I am a dog mom to a 10-year-old Chihuahua named Daisy. Unfortunately, she does not enjoy walks as much as I do. That is why it is my honor and delight to walk dogs of others. I have experience walking dogs of all sizes and energy levels and feel confident in my ability to walk a dog no matter what special considerations need to be made. I am looking forward to meeting and walking with the dogs of Lancaster!

I love being able to help anyone out with their pets so I look after a handful of my friends dogs whenever they need me to. I'd love to be helpful to other dog owners out there wanting their dog to hop outside, get some fresh air, and go for that walk they look forward to. I know how much my dog, Coco, looks forward to her walks, and I'd love to help anyone out there who needs a hand with their pup!
