Byron is the best walker our dog Hank has ever had. We’re so grateful we found someone who is reliable, conscientious, and also seems to really love our dog. Hank gets fun walks and loves walking with another dog sometimes. Hank can be a handful, but Byron is great with him and handles everything in stride and with a great sense of humor. He also sends fun updates every day so we never wonder ...

Byron is fantastic. He’s reliable, writes great (and funny!) report cards, and genuinely seems to love my dog, Bentley, who loves him right back. Highly recommend him.

Byron was wonderful. He housesat my dog while I was away for more than a week and he sent funny yet useful updates regularly and I knew that my dog was well taken care of. You can tell he loves dogs. Would highly recommend to other dog parents.

Your dog needs a best friend too!

I am prompt, reliable, communicative, flexible, and thorough, and I am a great choice to be a regular walker for your dog. If you live in the Capitol Hill area and need a Mon. - Fri. afternoon walker while you are at work, look ...

What Byron would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I would like to know if you are working to train your dog on any specific behaviors and if there are any medical needs. I do not have formal dog-training experience but I can provide continuity for any efforts you are already making.

I'd also like to know the window of time you would like your walk to occur within. I prefer at least a 3 hour window but I can work with narrower as well.

When Byron watches your pet

We could go for a brisk walk around the neighborhood or just mosey along unraveling the secrets of the universe (such as where squirrels come from, where they go, and which hand the treat is hiding in).
