I'll run with your dog

I adore caring for dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds! I was lucky to grow up with a few different dogs and have cared for many breeds: cocker spaniel, husky, lab, Samoyed, Rottweiler, Burnese mountain dogs and mixed breeds. I’ve never met a dog I haven't liked! I'm gentle, calm and energetic, love sharing their joy, keeping them safe, feeding them treats when they’re good, and playing with their favorite toys.

When Darlene watches your pet

I'll take your dog on walks in the park, along the water and in the city to her or his favorite spots in the neighborhood. We can play fetch, run, walk, people watch, enjoy the scenery and find a cool spot in the grass to relax.

I am not allowed to have dogs in my building, but am open to staying at your place.
