Hello, my name is Clarice! I am so excited to meet your dog! I currently travel between MD and VA during my breaks with school. I have two fur babies of my own, an 8 year old shih tzu mix that I’ve had for 4 years and a 10 month old American shorthaired cat that I’ve had for 4 months. I’ve had several years of dog walking and sitting experience with various breeds both professionally and for friends and family. I live an active lifestyle naturally so I find dog walking to be fun and engaging!
