Dog Walking in South Blue Valley, Kansas City
Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“Samuel has cared for my cats, guinea pigs and dog for years now. Both of my cats are rescues, one with severe trauma to humans in general. First meeting and he won both of them over instantly. Within the first month, I already saw a positive change in my skittish kitty. She seeks him and immediately flops for belly rubs, something that took years of trust building for me. The pupper is old and snoozes mostly, but Samuel gets to her happy zooms in an instant with his animal voice. My home is a very happy home when I am gone and Samuel is left to care for my fuzzies.”
“Caitlin helped out with a last minute dog walk request. Very responsive and provided updates. Thank you Caitlin. Highly recommend.”
“Excellent. She is very patient and friendly with my high-energy pup. Those two have become great friends. I can’t recommend Ashlyn enough if you’re looking for a great sitter!”
“Joseph is wonderful with my dogs and he goes above and beyond what is expected. I selfishly wish he was available year round! Thank you Joseph!”
About: I’m a sustainable landscaping student looking to help you with your pets while I finish my studies. I have experience with many different ages, breeds and behavioral challenges but specialize in helping shy/fearful dogs come out of their shell and feel safe. I currently volunteer at KC Pet Project as a trainer/mentor to new volunteers learning how to interact with and walk shelter dogs. I’ll Be sure your dogs needs are met including mental stimulation (games and enrichment) exercise, restful time and any medications or special needs. I have flexible availability and am here to help. If you don’t see the time or service you need, please feel free to message me. Pet sitting in my home May be available depending on if I have a foster dog at the time you reach out. I provide structure, predictability and love to pets in my home or yours. It’s key that I build the trust of your pet at their own pace so that we can communicate and enjoy activities like going for walks together. I have a well rounded understanding of dog body language and behavior that helps me to create a space where your dog will feel safe and cared for.
“Hannah took care of my dog Dutchess consistently for three years until I moved to another state. She always treats her like her own, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dog like I do her. She’s communicative about everything going on, and honest. I can really tell my dog loves her because she doesn’t want to leave her side! I trust her with my dog more than anyone else, and it’s a shame I can’t have her here watching my doggy anymore. If you want a dog sitter or walker who will treat your dog like royalty, give them lots of belly scratches, and long walks, and good play time - book Hannah!!!”
“Randall has taken care of my two dogs for years, we specifically chose him because of his animal handling experience and references with mutual friends. He is a trusted member of our community and we trust him in our home and with our two dogs (pug and pit bull mix/special needs).”
“Jessica is very responsible and trust worthy. She is a lover of animals and has a dog and cat of her own. She is very loving towards them and takes excellent care of them. She would be a great pet sitter or dog walker for anyone who is looking.”
“I have a 3 year old golden doodle who has had the privilege of being taken cared for by Alisha T. multiple times. She is one of the best dog sitters I have ever experienced. As a dog owner herself, she understands the importance of giving a dog exercise. Whenever she has watched my dog she has been able to take her on multiple walks a day and show her love while I am busy or out of town. Not only is she great with dogs, but she has a way of unconsciously making you feel comfortable and like a life long friend. Her love for animals is unmatched. She has my highest recommendation for this occupation with Rover.”
Ethan & Jeremy A.
“Ethan has taken care of our 1 year old Australian Shepherd on multiple occasions. Not only do we feel confident that she will be cared for, we know she will likely be spoiled (in the best way!). Ethan always has a “toy box” with dog-safe items, provides adequate exercise, and follows the diet guides we request. We know Lyla will be given lots of love and cuddles while we are gone as well. The second time we took her to stay with Ethan, she remembered him right away, and gave lots of kisses. She then went straight for where the toys are kept like she felt at home! I’m confident that your pet will be provided with the best care when you choose Ethan for a caregiver.”
“Vanessa was a total lifesaver for our 14-year-old cat, Lola! She not only made sure Lola got her daily meds like a pro but also kept her company and made her feel loved while we were away. We were worried about leaving Lola, but Vanessa put our minds at ease. She kept the food and water bowls full, and Lola looked genuinely content when we returned. We couldn't be happier with Vanessa's care and attention to detail. If you need someone awesome to look after your fur babies, she's the one! 🐱❤️”
“Andrew has always loved animals. He's always had pets as a child. He is very loving towards them. He would be a good asset to helping out with animals whether it is pet sitting or walking. Corinne H.”
“Haydin has always been such a delight whenever I have reached out to her last minute to take care of my dog and 2 kitties. She is punctual, organized, and a sweet soul that always makes sure my babies are well taken care of. Highly recommended!”
“Jessica is very flexible with my schedule and reliable. My dog is so happy after his walks. I can tell the difference with the training she does for pulling on the leash and he has improved a lot!”
“I've worked with Deborah for my two cattle dog puppies. She is a great trainer to work with the humans and the pups! She definitely understands the balance of the need to work with human to teach the skills to reinforce when she's gone. I loved watching her work with the pups. You can tell she has a genuine love for animals and wants them to have structure so they can thrive in their environments. She has visual joy when they follow commands and get rewarded and you can tell she loves what she does. I highly recommend her!”
About: From 13 on grew up with a Labrador. Big baby, lol. Whether on my own or with roommates, almost always been around cats and dogs. Including chihuahuas. Fed them, watered them, taken on walks. Played with them. In between jobs right now, plenty of time for most needs. Just no Sundays, mostly in case there are bus schedule needs. Any questions, ask. Have 1 spare leash. Good sized, open courtyard for potty, litter boxes for kitty. Neighborhood safe for walks around the block. Others also this routinely. Questions, ask.
“Mae truly adores animals AND is attentive, nurturing, patient and conscientious and trustworthy. I’d hire her in a heartbeat! I may be biased but I’ve seen it first hand for years!”
About: I have been taking care of cats and dogs since I was a 5. I adore pets and strive to make sure they feel loved and comfortable! I also know how hard it can be to be away from your pet and will send photo updates if you’d like! 💕 I can’t wait to meet your sweet baby! I’m working remotely from home which gives me lots of flexibility to play and love on your pet! I create my own hours and am able to give your pet lots of attention. I like in a very cute historic neighborhood close to downtown where we have a park close by and lots of sidewalk space to take strolls. We have a front and back yard too but they are not fenced in. Depending on your pets need I can take them out often to play or they can play inside too! It’s up to you!
“Nisa is just great! She walked my dog a couple miles a day and wore him out, just what I wanted! She is very friendly and follows directions very well. She arrived on time and was prompt in responding to texts for scheduling. I highly recommend her!”
“She does a wonderful job helping the dogs I breed. It’s definitely a huge tasks but she’s always up for it. She’s very passionate and you can tell she’s definitely gifted!”
