    I’m Juli. I have been walking dogs for over ten years and as a pet parent I know we all want the best possible care for our pets. As someone with experience with all sizes and many breeds, I understand all dogs require different approaches with the same level of care. Dogs are not just pets, they are family. I hope to be there to lend a hand in taking care of your furry family members.

    Hi, I'm Demetrius! What can I say, I LOVE DOGS...I mean I love all animals but dogs are just the top! I've had dogs my entire life, from little fluffy white dogs to muscle bound pit-bulls. My most recent, an English Bulldog named Hollywood, unfortunately passed after 11 amazing years and I'm without a pooch for the moment. I hope you allow me the pleasure of taking care of your important family member while you are at work or away and I will treat him or her as if they were my own!

    I love animals and especially dogs! I grew up with a beagle and have been walking dogs for neighbors and family friends since I was in middle school. I have also done pet sitting where I stayed at an owner's house and was completely responsible for their pet's care while they were away. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your dog are satisfied!

    Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

    Convenient and safe, the Belmead-South Run Crossing neighborhood is a great area for dog lovers and families. Walking Fido is not a chore when you can take him to the South Run Dog Park where pups can run and play off-leash in a large fenced area. Although the space is not divided for large and small dogs, most pups will play nicely, and the agility equipment should help Fido work off his excess energy. You will need to bring your own water bowls, but there is water near the park to fill up bottles.
