Sarah Jean was lovely to work with. She came by for a preliminary visit and understood my standoffish dog right away. Her actual drop visit seemed to go great. She went above what we needed her to do and spent some extra time with my dog to get to know her better so next time she wouldn’t be such a stranger. After the visit she provided a very detailed report and lots of pictures ...

Absolutely wonderful! Sarah Jean was an excellent communicator and sent us messages afterwards each visit. Our little pugs can be a handful, but she handled it with ease. We will definitely be using her again in the future! (She is a great photographer, to boot!)

When Sarah Jean watches your pet

The RVA area has so much to offer for outdoor activities!
I love getting outside with pups on any number of local park trails and sidewalks, and to allow for the cognitive engagement that the sights and smells of the outdoors offer your pup!

As a knowledgeable animal lover, I recognize the importance of the balance between physical and mental exercise for your dog, and I strive to combine walks and hikes that engage your pup both physically (uphill hikes, nature trails, etc), and mentally (lower traffic, high nature trails where smells would include lots of wildlife). I can provide walks at any speed, or offer runs for more high energy dogs.
I am happy to oblige any circumstance! :)
