Hi! My name is Rachel and I am so excited to walk your dog! I have grown up with a dog/dogs in my household since day one. Over the years, I have worked in an animal shelter, pet sit and cared for my own dogs. I have dealt with all types of dogs from super skittish ones to very high maintenance ones. I have cared for dogs that are bigger than me but also ones that are adorably small and I have always enjoyed my time with each and every animal.

Hi! I'm Danielle. My dog died over the holidays. I'm not in a position right now to get a new dog, but besides the company I also really miss the walks! Honestly, I just want some time to walk with a dog - getting paid is just a nice benefit. I've had dogs my whole life (except in undergrad) ranging from 15-80 lbs. I'm comfortable with bouncy puppies, older dogs, dogs with prey drives, and dogs who are leash aggressive. I look forward to meeting your doggo! Thanks in advance for the dog fix.

Hello! I'm Chloe, I'm 18 years old and have spent my entire life around animals! When I was born, I was born a few days a part from a golden retriever named Lucy, and thus spent my early life attached to that dogs hip. My family takes in rescued animals, so I have raised cats from birth, and taken care of injured animals all my life. My father is a goat farmer who owns 8 dogs, so I know my way around a few pups of all varieties! I'm excited to have the opportunity to meet new pups!
