    Hi, I'm Carissa! I've got two dogs of my own who recently took the journey with me to start a new life in the area. I believe my animal experience is taken with much comfort, respect, and love. Change is a challenge, but I have what it takes to cater to needs. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages and absolutely love meeting new ones. I'm a very active person who hikes, does yoga, and meditates daily. I will make sure your pup is taken care of and experience is as positive as possible!

    “Keep calm and walk a dog”

    Hello, I've been a dog owner for over 27 years ranging starting with large Anatolian Shepherds to the much smaller sized Corgis, though honestly I feel like my Corgis sometimes act like they are larger than my Anatolian Shepherds ever were. I've also been a cat owner for the last 17 years. I enjoy going for walks, playing and just hanging out and giving loves to my pets and hope I will get the chance to show the same love and attention to your pets.

    My name is Emma Collins. I’m a Kinesiology major at West Chester University. I’m originally from Scranton, PA. I have two pups of my own, Riley and Rigby. Riley is a sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Rigby is a very wild Jack Russell Terrier, and my boyfriend has a Rottweiler named Tucker, so I can handle any type of dog! I would love to give pet parents peace of mind knowing their pets are safe and getting exercise throughout the day!
