I am excited to meet your family member and explore the outdoors with them. I grew up with Golden Retrievers and always loved playing with them. I am looking forward to having my own dog one day soon. I know exercise is an essential component of any health human and dogs' lifestyle. I have more experience with medium and large dogs than small ones, but am open to meeting all types of furry friends. My priority is keeping your dog safe during walks and helping them enjoy time outdoors.

Proud animal lover and dog mom of two chihuahuas! I’ve walked all kinds of dogs with the Humane Society for two years, and I’ve taken two dog training and intelligence courses. I’m currently studying at UVA, but I love spending my free time going on walks, regardless of whether I have a dog.

Hi! My name is Rachel. I absolutely love dogs and have happily been able to own dogs throughout my life. My first dog was an incredibly sweet and kind-hearted English Springer Spaniel, and my second dog was a more rambunctious English Springer Spaniel. Now my family has two Shih Tzu who are almost 14 years old (I still call them puppies though). I also have six years of experience pet sitting and dog walking. Unfortunately my dogs live back in Michigan, so I would absolutely love the opportunity to take your dog for a walk and give it all of the pets, cuddles, and love that I wish I could be giving my dogs.
