Hi All! My name is Bri and I am a huge dog lover as I have grown up with our family Dauschund named Parlo. I have experience working in a dog grooming company called “Groomingdales” where I learned how to wash and groom the dogs that came through. I am a pretty popular dog sitter for my friends or neighbors while they are away for a weekend. I am reliable and like to be efficient with tasks that are important to me. There is no doubt I will give lots of love and affection to your dog while we’re out on a walk! I live a very active lifestyle as well, therefore I am willing to walk or run as far as your dog needs to acquire their daily recommended exercise!

“I will enjoy walking your dog!”

I am a grandfather and long-time pet owner that would love to walk your dog! I need the exercise and so does your dog! I have been walking dogs for years and really enjoy being out with them . . even in the rain and snow. I am large enough to handle even the largest of breeds while being gentle enough for the tiny ones too! Dogs love me . . . even dogs that hate most folks like being around me! I would rather walk with dogs than most people! I am calm and gentle with dogs. Harness required!

“5 years experience”

My love of dogs started as a child when I had a German Shepherd as a pet. I started dog walking in NYC in October of 2015. Some of the dogs I've loved walking were Corgis, Toy Yorkies and Australian Shepherds. It's important to me on each walk we have a fun and safe time. I have experience walking all types of breeds, sizes and ages.

Resting in the very heart of the state of Vermont is the city of Rutland — a place where New England travelers like to stop to experience the brisk Northeastern outdoors and enjoy the warm company of friends new and old. Rutland is a small and unassuming community, but it welcomes visitors with open arms — and paws! There is a thriving community of dog-lovers, and those with four-legged friends won’t be at a loss for things to do. The six well-regarded veterinary clinics in town ensure that dogs and their humans can pursue their adventures without hesitation.

Anyone with a love for the outdoors will feel right at home in Rutland, as there are numerous state parks and woodlands that offer miles of hiking trails through valleys, forests and mountains. For those who want a more laid-back experience, the small-town streets and local restaurants serve as a quaint respite from the quotidian grind. And everyone can be sure to find a nice place to stay: there are numerous Fido-approved inns, bed & breakfasts, and hotels throughout Rutland and the surrounding area.

However you plan to visit Rutland, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised by your experience, and you and your dog will have a great stay that you won’t forget!
