Austin walked our dogs for a number of years whenever we went out of town. We had a park nearby and he would take them for a long walk in the morning and evening. He always showed up on time and never missed a day. Having grown up with dogs he was great with them and enjoyed spending time with him.
I would recommend him to anyone needing a dog walker.

Austin used to come to our house after school to walk our dog while we were at work.
He always showed up and was very trustworthy. He loves dogs and our dog loved it whenever Austin would come by. He would take him on his walk and then spend time throwing the ball and playing fetch.
I cant recommend him enough.

Looking to help fellow dog owners!

Hello! My name is Austin, I grew up on Bainbridge Island and have watched neighbors and friends pets on the island since I was a young boy. I recently moved to downtown Seattle and would love to continue the practice, and help fellow dog owners in the area. My family recently began using rover while we leave on vacation, so it seemed fitting to become a walker for the site myself. Growing up, my family ...

What Austin would like to know about your dog

I love all breeds, and will happily watch any dog that needs care. However;

I'd like to know if the dog is particularly energetic or shy, and how it likes to be treated. Does it need space, does it require maintenance, will I need to be interacting with it every moment.

Is your dog prone to aggression, how does it handle interacting with people? How does it handle interacting with other dogs?

Lastly, is your dog prone to potty mistakes? This isn't an issue, I just want to be aware so I can take care of it sooner than later.

When Austin watches your pet

I live near the sculpture park by the water and can take your dog on a long walk along the waterfront.I work at Amazon near the HQ and can walk your dog around Denny Park, or take it to visit the local dog park if you are comfortable with that. For dogs that need a longer walk we can make it to Kinnear Park and could thrown one of the many toys I have, or the dogs favorite ball if available.

For home stays I work maintain interaction with the dog if thats what if it needs. If it is particularly energetic I excel at gentle play aimed at tiring the dog rather than exciting it, in the hopes it will fall asleep more easily later. I can also relax with the dog if thats what it prefers, or let it maintain its distance while keeping a keen eye.
