Katie was wonderful with Fletcher. She was very prompt, flexible and knowledgable. With her dog training experience, she provided training tips that will be very useful. Five stars for Katie.

Katie walks my energetic rescue terrier mix. She is efficient, energetic and amiable. She even enjoys my goofy dog!

Dog lover & Dog park aficionado

I am a graduate student taking classes part time, and finishing my certificate as a dog trainer from Animal Behavior College. I have a super flexible schedule and am looking to grow working with pups into a career!

I have cared for all types of dogs, from Pekingeses to German Shepherds. I have experience giving medicine, bathing pups, and providing basic obedience training. I did a brief stint working at a professional dog day care ...

Can provide daily exercise

I have a super flexible schedule and love working from home with my pup wrapped around my feet. With the exception of a 2.5 hr class twice a week, I'm not usually away from the house for more than two hours at a time. My dog-sitting style is to smother with love and play lots of games, maybe even practice a few tricks.

Bennett and I typically go to the Valley St Dog Park twice a day, once in the morning, once in the evening. Depending on the day, and the crowd, we could stay 15 min or an hour-- rain or shine, and especially snow! Bennett is very active so I'm used to throwing a Chuck-it ball endlessly. I live in a quiet neighborhood near the USM Law School, and a great place for afternoon walks.

I am open to dogs sleeping in my bed, as long as they don't hog the blankets, but I also have a large dog bed in my room, and a wire crate in the living room. Sleeping options would be left to the dog's preference.
