Elizabeth did such a great job! She was scheduled to take care of Louie twice daily during the recent Arctic cold spell (the daily high temp was about -5°) and she did not disappoint. Thank you Elizabeth!

I have known Neil for almost 40 years. As a childhood friend he has always stood out as being caring and compassionate. As a pet lover myself, I would want someone who understands that they are family. Neil has always displayed that type of love and concern for his pets. You will be happy to have him care for your pet/family member.

I'm so glad Maria could help me out with dog walking. Will be reaching out to her next time I need a dog walker! She's very good at keeping me updated about my dog. Even my cat, who normally hides from people, was out and about while she was here.

About: I have had the privilege of working in pet care for the past 15 years, where my passion for animals has thrived. Throughout my tenure, I've diligently cared for a variety of different kind of dogs. My experience encompasses both individual and group settings, allowing me to adapt to diverse pet personalities and needs. In my role, I prioritize the well-being and happiness of every animal under my care. This involves maintaining a safe and nurturing environment, adhering to feeding schedules, administering medications when necessary, and engaging pets in stimulating activities to promote physical and mental enrichment. Whether it's leisurely walks, interactive play sessions, or simply providing comforting companionship, I strive to foster trusting relationships with each furry friend. Furthermore, I understand the importance of clear communication and collaboration with pet owners. Regular updates, feedback exchanges, and adherence to specific care instructions are integral aspects of my service. By fostering open lines of communication, I aim to ensure peace of mind for pet owners, knowing that their beloved companions are in capable and caring hands. My commitment to excellence in pet care is underscored by ongoing education and certification in animal behavior, first aid, and emergency protocols. I am dedicated to staying informed about the latest advancements in pet care practices, thereby enhancing the quality of service I provide. Above all, my greatest satisfaction stems from witnessing the joy and contentment that pets experience under my care. Building lasting bonds with furry companions and their owners is a privilege that I cherish, and I am eager to continue enriching the lives of animals in my community through compassionate and reliable pet care services. Currently, I have a full time job, but since my passion is dog care I would love it to be my full time job in future. I will make sure to accommodate all your schedule needs. Keeping your pets safe is my number one focus. I always watch out for any dangers, take steps to prevent accidents, and stay updated on what to do in emergencies. Making sure pets feel secure and happy is what it's all about!

About: Hello, I'm Carla, and my passion for caring for dogs is deeply rooted in my own experiences with my beloved companion, Candy, whom I adopted from Orphans of the Storm when she was just a 1.5. Now, at the age of 13, Candy remains my faithful companion, and I credit her for bringing immense fulfillment into my life. Despite her age, Candy is an active and lively companion. Regular walks have proven essential in maintaining her overall health and helping with her arthritis. My canine journey began in childhood, surrounded by English Bulldogs. Over the years, I've shared my home with a Chihuahua, Black Labrador, and English Bulldog. While my past experiences include dog walking and boarding, a change in living arrangements prompted me to discontinue the boarding aspect. Having faced the challenge of finding trustworthy care for Candy, I understand the importance of reliable and compassionate pet care. Recently, I've embarked on a new venture by volunteering at Orphans of the Storm, where I'll be actively involved in dog walking. The joy and satisfaction I derive from caring for dogs extend beyond my personal life, driving me to contribute to the well-being of other canine companions in need. Recognizing the stress associated with entrusting a beloved pet to someone else's care, I approach dog walking with a thorough understanding of the responsibility involved. I have experience handling leash-aggressive behavior since that is how Candy used to be. I've successfully gained control over Candy, curbing undesirable behaviors like pulling, lunging, and barking. My commitment to the well-being and safety of every dog under my care is my top priority. I would love to meet you and your furry friend! Most weekdays I'm available from 8:45 to 1:30 and weekends I'm very flexible. I'm available anytime during the weekdays of March 25-29 and May 31-June 9th. After June 12th-August 2nd, I'm very flexible during the weekdays and weekends. I do not offer in home pet sitting or overnights at your home right now. That may change over the summer. You are more than welcome to ask me though and I may be able to make it work.

Katie is the youngest of our 4 children. We’ve often referred to her as our Golden Retriever because she’s been the sweet, easy-going person you could always count on. She grew up with dogs - sometimes two at a time. Katie’s an animal magnet. She would be a fantastic dog walker and an extremely conscientious dog sitter.
