Gene is a trusting individual and responsible, He truly helped me with my pet and I highly recommend him as a caring dog walker, because he will recognize the needs of the dog and respond to them. I think he's valuable in this position because he has had experience working for his dad who is a veterinarian

What Gene would like to know about your dog

How large is your dog? Do you have any special requirements? What is your dog's personality (e.g. gets excited, quiet, shy, overactive, likes to jump, barks a lot etc.)

Additional Skills
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Special Needs Dog Experience

We'll visit the local parks (if near your home). I'll give your dog their favorite treats. I'll follow your instructions to match your dog's needs. For example, if you want your dog to exercise... we'll do that. If you want a quiet walk, we'll do that. If your dog has special needs, I'll take care of that. Each dog has a unique personality and unique requirements. I'll tailor the experience to your request.
