“Erian is absolutely wonderful! I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to look after their pets. My dog absolutely loves her! She is reliable, timely, and has great communication.”
“Salina is amazing when caring for animals. She has helped me many times and I always felt she took wonderful care of my pups. She is very calm and sweet and that is exactly what an animal needs when being cared for. I would highly recommend her to others. Carole”
“Wonderful experience. Blythe was great!”
“As always, had a great experience with Chloe. My two dogs were happy to see her, and she was able to accommodate their sickness with a couple extra care steps. She's super easy to work with and great with the pets.”
“Aubrey has dropped in for several walks and she is nothing short of amazing! She goes above and beyond to take care of my dog and leaves detailed updates with pictures after each visit. It is such a relief knowing my dog is in great hands while getting breaks from his crate while I’m at work!”
“Lee is responsible, attentive, and hard working. He's cared for people's pets for many years including walking, feeding, and tertiary care. Your furry friends are in good hands under his watch!”
“Rosemary is the best! She is super friendly and loves animals. She walked my two dogs, and they had the best time. Rosemary is super flexible, and definitely put me at ease about finding a new dog walker. 10/10 recommend!”
About: I have many years of experience taking care of not just dogs and cats but exotic animals as well such as fish, birds, and reptiles! I also have extensive experience in administering medications to animals. I work full time as an animal keeper from 9-5 Friday-Tuesday. I am available all day Wednesday and Thursday and I am also available to do drop in visits before and after I go to work. I understand that different pets have different needs. And I follow instructions explicitly. I also know how much pet owners miss their fur babies when away so I make a point to send picture and updates.

“I've been friends with Jim for over 15 years. He is genuinely one of the kindest, gentle souls you'll ever meet. Anybody who knows Jim, knows Clyde- his best fur friend and sidekick for so many years. He is great with pets, his own dog & cats adored him their whole lives. I think this is a great way for Jim to fulfill his love for animals, while helping him heal from his own furbaby crossing the rainbow bridge. <3”
About: I've grown up with dogs from Toy Poodles, to Beagles, to Dalmatians. I walk my Dalmatian, Hope, between 3 and 5 miles per day and would love to find some walking buddies for her! I can handle any sized breed as I am a large man myself (6'3 240 lbs). I can handle mild to wild personalities and friendly or unfriendly dogs, whether it be with kids or other animals (as long as they are friendly towards me). Let me know how I can be of service to your furry friend! I am a real estate appraiser who works from home so I have plenty of flexibility with my schedule as I set it myself. I already walk my current dog, Hope, 3-5 miles per day and frequently hit up Forest Hill Park or the James River Park System. I will treat your pet or home with the same respect as I would my dog and home. I can either walk your pooch with my girl, or if the pet isn't good with other animals, I can also do separate walks for them!
“Laurie is the only person I trust to watch my dog Charlie when I am out of town and he loves her so much! Charlie is an 11 year old Havanese, and Laurie has been his sitter for a few years now. Laurie is responsible, makes sure Charlie gets exercise, and he is so excited whenever he gets to stay with her. Charlie has high anxiety and I know Laurie will always give him the love and attention he requires; I would not leave Charlie with anyone else, we love Laurie!”
About: I've been a cat owner for 14 years! I have experience managing animal conflicts, playing/engaging with pets while being respectful of their space and attentive towards their current wants/needs. I have 2.5 years experience working in a doggy-daycare and currently live with a dog (roommates) and cat (mine). That being said, I have had the pleasure of also cleaning up every pet-caused mess under the sun. I love all animals and enjoy caring for them ((: whether it's a walk/jog, playing fetch/with toys, picking up after them, or just sitting with them on the floor. I am off work Thurs-Sat, so I am super flexible on those days only! Happy to work mornings, afternoons, or evenings with any amount of cats and/or dogs. I dont push the pet to do anything they dont want to and make an effort to move at their pace, with gentle encouragment if needed! When caring for pets, I think it's important to be respectful and engaging while also supervising to make sure they are safe.
About: I've taken care of my own dogs for years so Ill treat your pet like they're my own baby , they deserve to be treated special , have time spent with them, cuddle with, giving kisses just like they would get at home due to most dogs suffer from separation anxiety they miss you badly I know my Pandora does , I just like to make them know there going to be ok and Mommy and Daddy is coming back ! I can take your baby out for a routine walk in the morning and in the afternoon or help with the weekly routine, get there exercise God knows I need mine Lol ! It helps me be organized to stay on a routine. In my home if I’m in my front yard I would have them on a leash probably just take them for a walk. In my backyard it’s fenced so I could let them out put stay out side with them just to make sure they didn’t get out somehow or jump the fence you just never know what’s going to happen I would do the same thing at the clients house also . My pandora is crate trained so when I leave she gets a treat and takes a nap that’s her safe haven place she just goes in and out of there all day by herself anyway. I would think some peoples are like that also . It’s just to make sure she doesn’t get into anything while I’m gone .

“Nora is great with Sophie and was able to help with same day last minute requests. I really appreciate that since I’m struggling with an injury.”
“I owe Darnell x100000. Everything I could ask for in a walker. I was nervous because my dog can be a puller and especially crazy with new people . Darnell took great care and things went better than I could imagine. Will definitely hope that he’ll be available in the future . Ice loved him! Thanks again bro !”
“Alea was great! She was available on short notice to walk my dog, which I am so grateful for! She was really sweet and kind to my dog, Maya. Maya was definitely tired once she got back into the house and plopped down for a nap. I will definitely be using Alea again in the future and can’t recommend her enough!”
“Hali is amazing! She has one dog and treats it like a first born. Very nice and loving woman. Dogs and animals make her so happy.”
About: I grew up with dogs and have house sat/pet sat for neighbors, family, and friends. They have relied on me to take care of the pets for multiple days in a row. I typically get up each morning make breakfast and go for a walk, run or do a Pilates work out. I am currently free all hours of the day to dog walk with a very flexible schedule! I have a fenced in yard, my roommate has a small Aussie doodle who is very friendly with dogs and people. I live in a brand new build, so the house is super clean and very pet friendly.
“Becky was amazing!!! She came and met my girls and was up for anything! My girls love their walks and play time and Becky gives them that!! Thank you Becky!!!”
