About: I have grown up around dogs my whole life. I raised and trained my dog since she was a puppy. I have also interned at a veterinary hospital. I am currently studying animal and poultry sciences and am learning about companion animal behavior to help how I care for your animals. I am currently a full-time student at Virginia Tech. The best times for me are Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday 11am -7pm. Those are the best days for me to spend quality time with your animal. I will not be offering home sitting or pet sitting, but I will be offering dog walking services. I can ensure safety with dog walking by making sure we are going at a safe pace curated to your dog and their needs. Staying hydrated throughout walks, and also being mindful of traffic or other people around to ensure our safety.
“Arwen takes great care of our Buddy!! We love her thorough notes about her visit and she’s very good about communicating with us!! Buddy loves her 🧡”
“Alyssa has always loved animals. Even when she was little, she showed care and concern for lost or injured animals in our neighborhood. She wanted to adopt them all! Her love of animals motivated her to work at a local animal hospital when she was in high school and throughout college. She has received specialized training to help manage behaviors and she is also able to administer medications. Our dog always looks forward to her visits because he knows he will get extra walks and cuddles.”

About: I have many years of experience with fostering both dogs and litters of puppies of different sizes.

“Victoria did an amazing job checking on Hero and walking him and whatnot while I was away. She gave lots of updates and pictures and made me feel a lot better about leaving him for the weekend!”
“Keri has helped look after my dog Momo on multiple occasions. Each time was for multiple days at a time, and it was when Momo was still a puppy (under 1 year old). She was extremely careful with instructions, very attentive, and always gave as much love and care as she could! Momo loves Keri and goes absolutely berserk with kisses whenever she sees her. Keri is the epitome of an animal lover, as she's not only won over Momo's heart but also my cat, Papaya. She's patient and has many experiences with pets throughout her life. I think she'd be perfect for Rover and know that she'll love being a part of the family.”

About: I grew up always having a dog in my home. I have a great love of animals and always took care of friends and neighbors pets while they are away. I’ve had experience with and a love of both dogs and cats! Currently I am a sophomore here at Virginia Tech. My schedule is lax this semester and I have plenty of time to take care of your pets!

I will treat your pet as if they were my own. I have never met an animal I didn’t love!
“Never met a bigger animal lover than Audrey! Even as a young girl she volunteered at the local animal rescue,Furry Friends in Jupiter, Florida, and walked dogs every week all throughout middle school and high school. She has two dogs at home that she loves and misses while away at school and will treat your pet the same as her own fur babies! She is now a hard working junior at Virginia Tech and is looking for an opportunity to give your pet the same care and love she has to so many others, including her own. Walking, sitting, and feeding she would be able to help while you are away at work, class, or all day.”
