Rena was wonderful. She made sure our animals were well taken care of. There was even an accident that she made sure to take care of so everything was ok when we got home. Rena was very responsive to all communication and did a great job keeping us up to date on how our pets were doing. Would highly recommend her!

  • Verified Background Check

Love exploring new neighborhoods

I'm 33 years old and recently graduated from the University of Iowa with a Ph.D. in Communication Studies. Before that, I served in the Peace Corps. I don't teach in the summer, so my schedule is extremely flexible. I am reliable and responsible, and I'm experienced in taking care of dogs. I grew up with a 100-pound lab/retriever mix, and my partner and I currently have a 105-pound Great Pyrenees fur baby. I ...

What Rena would like to know about your dog

I would want to know whatever I need to know about the dog's health-- for example, some have hip issues and shouldn't be taken for runs. I'd also like to know if there are any behavioral issues-- for example, should I avoid other dogs or small children while we're out walking. I tend to enjoy bigger, fluffier dogs, but I'm happy to walk or care for any kind of dog.

When Rena watches your pet

I can take clients' preferred routes, or explore scenic neighborhoods or parks in the area. It's important that my clients set the terms for what they're comfortable with, but I'm happy to take dogs for walks, jogs, to play fetch, or whatever else they prefer-- I'm flexible.
