Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“Very appreciative of Anne. She was able to jump in and help us with our dog at the last minute, all while still being thorough, thoughtful, and responsive.”
“Jess is a thoughtful and attentive petsitter, she's managed my four full-sized rescues for weekends at a time and I would trust her in any pet circumstance. She's timely and gives my dogs full care, long walks, and lots of attention. I would recommend Jess for all of your pet setting needs.”
“Thank you for giving me peace of mind on my business trip. It was just what I needed to allow myself to focus on the task at hand. Thanks Anne!”
“Arial takes care of my sweet Perla when I travel. She takes such a good care and gives her love and keep us update of how she is doing. Perla is always excited to see her!”
“I just met Kala, was impressed that she quickly picked up the commands and hand signals I use with Dominic. Appreciate that she did a meet and greet earlier this morning and then a walk just now. Dominic came back happy. She took good notes. She is efficient. Thank you!”
“I wholeheartedly recommend Saya, who studied veterinarian and pet training. With a background in both domestic and wild animal care, she stands out with her knowledge and caring approach with animals. I personally experienced her expertise when she addressed my fur baby's behavioral issues, notably excessive barking and excitability. With patience and effective techniques, she transformed my Yorkie behavior for the better. Having Saya work with any pet ensures not just physical health, but also behavioral wellness. I am confident in recommending her for any pet care role.”

“Isabelle and Diego are very professional and friendly. They communicated very well before, during, and after the walks with Rex. They also provide very good and cute pictures. I definitely will continue to have business with them :)”
“Brooke is super responsible and kind. She loves animals and I would trust her to take care of mine anytime. She truly cares for them as if they were her own.”
“Thank you so much!”
About: Flexible worker in the DMV with extra time, care and love to give to the wonderful dogs (and cats!) in the area. Pets of all sizes are welcome. I grew up with 6-plus dogs, had a cat in college and am the go-to walker / sitter for all my friends in the area. Looking to find a handful of pet owners to settle into a routine with, plus help anyone with any immediate / emergency requests. I LOVE dogs and cats but don't have the apartment or time to own one - this seems like a great compromise. Looking forward to getting to know you and your pets! Freelance worker with a flexible schedule so often can coordinate what works best for you. I don't have a car so if I need to travel farther I'll need a bit of time for transit. I believe in meeting pets where they are in their development, whether that's early on during training or well into their prime (and habits). At the end of the day I think pets want love and consistency, and I'm happy to provide whatever makes them most comfortable since they'll be missing their parents, most likely :).
About: I find myself frequently referred to as the "dog whisperer". Many of the dog owners that I have dogsat for always reach out to me days after saying their fur baby's behavior has changed in the sense that they miss my company (which tends to be bittersweet for the owner haha). I've even received word back that an owner's puppy has seemed for calm after my care. Over the past 5 years, I have fostered 4 puppies. For obvious reasons I have not been able to verbally keep in contact with them, but I hope they miss me as much as I miss them. Needless to say, your fur baby will be in great hands! I currently work a hybrid full time job (Monday-Friday/9am-5pm) so during the week I am available Wednesday's & Friday's to care for your pet at home or for an evening walk everyday after 6pm. I am usually free every weekend so if you're planning a little vacation or weekend getaway you can count on me! If you have a small pet, I can care for them in my apartment as my building is dog friendly. I am also open to caring for you pet in your home if that is more comfortable for you. I have experience caring for animals in home for as long as a month!
“We were so lucky to find Abby to care for our pets when we were on vacation! She was thorough, detail orientated and knew how to put our minds at ease when we were away from our dogs. I would highly recommend her for walks, pet sitting and overall care! She will not disappoint.”
“Jessica did a wonderful job of walking our dog! She was promptly on time each day, provided great pics and updates, and was easy and fast to communicate with.”
“Claudia was so wonderful with watching my animals, she was so sweet and calm and I felt so safe leaving my babies in her care. I highly recommend trusting your pets with her! She is a wonderful girl and I could tell my animals loved her.”
About: I have had several family dogs. My first pets were two big fluffy Samoyeds named Tyler and Chelsey, the best big siblings a kid could've asked for! Later, during high school, we adopted a Corgi named Alex from our local shelter and adopted an Australian-Shepard Beagle named Cocoa mix from a family friend. Talk about a high-energy pair of dogs! After Alex crossed the rainbow bridge, our home didn't feel the same with out a Corgi, which is when our family adopted Jax! Moving away from home has made me miss being around dogs and going on walks, so I am excited to bring that love and energy to your pets soon! I am currently working full time but am available on most weekends or weekday evenings to watch, drop in, walk, and play with your pets! Unfortunately my landlord does not allow pets to stay in our residence. But I am happy to come meet with you and your pets and work on building a relationship to ensure your pets are comfortable, and stress-free while you are away!
“Pamela was competent, attentive, and communicative throughout the whole experience. Brandy has been experiencing separation anxiety, and Pamela really nurtured her.”

“Brent is a natural when it comes to caring for animals! He has watched my cat for me many times when I’m out of town and she is always so content and very well taken care of. My cat is usually very shy around people, but she always loves to see Brent and get pets from him. He is very gentle and genuinely cares! I would definitely recommend him to care for your fur baby!”
“Cat was happy to be flexible on timing for our puppy’s potty training schedule. Pearl absolutely loved her time with Cat!!”
“Sarah is a driven, caring and responsible person who is punctual, thoughtful and kind. She is great with my cocker spaniel and a fantastic employee!”
