Carissa has been amazing with my dog. She was always reliable, able to pick him up last minute, and was great with making sure he got in some exercise. I felt very comfortable with her and trusted her very quickly with my apartment and pup!

Everything was great! I loved getting little notes and pictures from Carissa to show me how my munchkins were while we were away.

Your pup deserves a fun walk!

Hi! I have recently moved to Philly from New Jersey. Before that, I lived in California where I was the lead dog trainer at Petco since 2013. In addition to being a certified trainer with the AKC, I have also been taking care of all sorts of animals for my entire life. I love and am comfortable taking care of all breeds of dogs, cats, small animals, fish and birds. Prior to moving to PA ...

What Carissa would like to know about your dog

Do they have a preferred walking route? Are they good with other animals? Are they crate trained and/or potty trained? I would like to know as much as possible about their daily routine to help them have the best experience possible! Please note that I have two cats st home so any dogs boarded with us will need to be cat friendly :)
