Hi, I'm Molly! Growing up, my family always included a puppy brother. Between Shadow, our jet black Newfoundland-Labrador mix, and Koda, our fluffy Husky-Malamute mix, I'm extremely comfortable walking or running with large dogs and getting out and about on longer adventures. That said, I adore pups of all sizes and personalities!

Hey there! I'm Amber. I enjoy being around animals of all kinds and have experience with all breeds of dogs. I am able to medicate any animals as needed including giving any injectable meds. I have experience with diabetic animals as I actually fostered a diabetic cat, who is now in remission and I adopted him after many months of fostering.

My name is Edna, and I have been a lover of animals all my life. I grew up with a seeing eye dog, Mandy, who helped a family member who is blind, which is maybe why I especially love dogs. More recently, I have spent time dog-sitting and walking for friends. I’m not able to personally own a dog right now, so getting to spend time with them is a treat. I’m looking forward to hanging out with your furry friend!

Hi! I am an avid pet-lover. I'm very energetic and would be happy to run dogs rather than walk, if requested. I am very good with anxious or high-energy dogs. In the past, I've taken care of border collies, Australian shepherds, pit bulls, and of course - mutts!
