I was taking a week off for vacation and was attaching a work trip to the end of that vacation. I contacted Kim a week before leaving and I was surprised she was so willing and able to walk my dog while my fiance was at work on such short notice. Texting me and my fiance when she got there and when she left, I felt like Kim actually cared about my dog and wasn't ...

Kim is such a kind person, especially to dogs. She really tries to understand a dog’s needs and empathizes with them. She is very trustworthy and I have trusted her with my dog for extended periods.

Kim took great care of my golden retriever while I was away for a short vacation. Kim let me know when she got to my place and when she was leaving. She also alerted me to notable things that may have occurred while she was walking/taking care of my dog.

Off-duty teacher, days & weekends!

Hi there! I'm Kim, a local teacher looking for a fun summer gig. As a dog lover my entire life, Rover seemed the best place to start. I'm not allowed pets in my current apartment, and travel frequently, which has severely limited my access to doggos! I think about the dogs that live in the apartment buildings by me, and I would love to help people out by taking care of their dogs during the ...

What Kim would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I would like to know any kind of tips and tricks your dog already knows before I take him/her out, as dogs are trained to different commands.

When Kim watches your pet

We will walk around Ballston/VA Square area--Quincy Park, Oakland Park, Glebe & Randolph Park. I will take neighborhood roads, so as to stay off of the congested main streets. If your dog likes to run with their human, I will try to run with your dog. If provided, I will use toys that your dog is familiar with. If stopping in during the day, I will take your dog out, keep your dog active, really paying attention to their needs, and tidy up any mess they may make during the day.
