David has been awesome with Roxi! He is great at communicating if he's running late, when he is grouping her together with other dogs, and clarifying if something looks odd in the schedule. He has been really accommodating with last minute changes, and making sure he prioritizes her safety.

Melissa was great! Besides from being a good and responsive caregiver to Pia, she went above and beyond and made sure my key was where I left it 😅 Pia seemed very well taken care of and happy when I got home!

Tommy was wonderful with our two cats. They were especially patient with our elderly cat who needed more time to eat. They took their time feeding and playing with the cats, made sure the doors were locked, and were kind enough to bring in any packages that were delivered when we were gone. Would definitely contact again next time we need a sitter.

About: Hi, I'm Drew. I spent most of my life living in Alaska, where I worked in recreational therapy for juvenile delinquents. Now, I move wherever my wife's job takes us. I spent five years in Houston, Texas, where I walked dogs. I've now lived in Boston for three years, walking dogs in Southie. As of 6/24, I have two clients moving out of Southie by the end of the summer. I'm hoping to find new customers who need regular dog walks, between 10am and noon. Walks times from 15 minutes to an hour are available. I have experience walking and training dogs from 10 to 110lbs, and have plenty of references who can attest to the quality and dependability of my work. I enjoy being outside and love the company of dogs. Although I can change the format for clients, I prefer spending the majority of each visit moving. My goal when walking dogs is to provide exercise and stress relief. I'm great with dogs and enjoy their companionship. I don't miss work days and plan my vacations months in advance. I'm very clean and safety is a priority for me. I've got lots of references. Hire me if you're looking for a reliable dog walker who really enjoys the work. I walk dogs from 9am until 4pm, Monday through Friday. For established clients, I occasionally do walks on weekends and evenings in cases of unexpected overtime, emergencies, etc. Unless I'm requested to do otherwise, I try to minimize my time in each client's home. After a walk, I typically clean the dog as needed, refill her water dish, send a quick text to the parent, and am gone again. No clients have ever expressed issues with privacy, security or messes regarding my work.

Layla was amazing with my special needs senior boy Dexter, and my kitty Tessa. She followed my instructions and asked great questions. She was present, thoughtful, and communicated with me during her time with them. I got the sweetest photos and videos of them playing. Tessa and Dexter clearly loved her. I'm excited to use her again!

Lizzy is the best person to trust with your fur baby. Whenever she takes care of my large Boxer of 90lbs, I know he’s always safe, loved, and having the best time! He gets SO excited to see her & she treats him like her own. Any dog, big or small, Lizzy will care to them like no one else. She’s got a heart of gold!

Natalie is the best! She has taken care of my dog a few times when we were out out of town. She stayed at my house when our dog was a puppy. The puppy is growing up and she recently took care of her again for a week. Natalie is very responsible, trustworthy and punctual. She loves animals and gave our dog lots of walks, love, and TLC. I highly recommend Natalie and best of all, our dog just loves her!

Julie has walked/pottied/checked on my dogs countless times over the past 5 years. My older dog knows I'm his mom, but he considers her his "person." I have a high energy cattledog mix, who is very nicely leash trained, and Julie is able to take him on long walks and hikes without issue and he is always super pumped to go with her. When she met my spicy chihuahua, she gave him the time and space he needed to feel comfortable with her and now he spins in circles with excitement when she comes over to see him. Julie is a kind, gentle, intuitive handler and I'm grateful my dogs have her as a friend and caretaker.
