“I will always treat your furry companion as my own”

Hello, my name is Alex and I am a lover of all dogs! I have experience with various dog breeds and temperaments due to being surrounded by them all of my life. Your dog is my number one priority and I will ensure they are well taken care of at all times. I’ve owned dogs, cats, ferrets, and fish so I understand the importance of being able to trust someone with your furry companion. I will always treat them as if they were my own.

“I can’t wait to meet your pup!”

I have had a passion for all animals my whole life! I have two dogs of my own both are Papillons, named Sasha and Cynder. I had a job walking dogs in high school and I loved forming a bond with the dogs I walked as well as the pet parents! I have also worked in a grooming salon so I have a lot of experience handling dogs, big and small, and It taught me how to handle many different situations. I am excited to meet some of the dogs around my community!

“Don't trust anyone that doesn't like dogs”

Hi, I'm Tareq! I reside in Northern Virginia. When I was a kid, my first pet was a parrot, and I treated him like my son. He was so awesome, and friendly that I immediately became an animal lover. I currently have 2 German Shepherd and Labrador mixed dogs that I've had for over 2 years and I've loved every bit of it. I take pleasure in meeting new dogs and seeing the happy faces on all the good boys and girls! I've played sports my whole life and I'm extremely active and love being outside.

Due to my lifelong exposure to dogs of all ages, sizes and personality types, I would consider myself to be a highly adaptable canine caretaker. Because of this, I'm happy to match your pup's energy level on our walk. From fun runs to leisurely walks and everything in between, I'm game as long as it makes your little one wag his or her tail. Additionally, I'm happy to help any pups with special needs that need extra care while their moms and dads are away.
