About: I have cared for dogs cats ferrets horses snakes mice from a teenager onwards. Experience with large breed dogs, I’m all for sofa cuddles with all types of animals - my partner and I also work from home with a fenced in back garden! My partner and I work full time at home, however my job is flexible my dog gets 3 walks a day morning lunch and dinner and that changes based on the weather - to hot we wait until it cools, rainy - we get the rain jacket out. I have a fenced in yard, with ring cams front and back - I have a Great Dane that loves everyone and every animal. I make sure the water is filled anytime I leave and any feeding/snacks are given.
“Erian is great!! She communicates quickly and thoroughly, she is reliable and punctual, and I absolutely trust her with my 7 month puppy because she gives her so much love. Definitely recommend her!”
“Aubrey has dropped in for several walks and she is nothing short of amazing! She goes above and beyond to take care of my dog and leaves detailed updates with pictures after each visit. It is such a relief knowing my dog is in great hands while getting breaks from his crate while I’m at work!”
“Rachel LOVES her cat! More than anything. She loves playing with animals and we’ve had dogs growing up so she knows how to take care of them well. I think she’s going to be a great dog walker and she will like this job a lot.”
About: I've grown up with dogs from Toy Poodles, to Beagles, to Dalmatians. I walk my Dalmatian, Hope, between 3 and 5 miles per day and would love to find some walking buddies for her! I can handle any sized breed as I am a large man myself (6'3 240 lbs). I can handle mild to wild personalities and friendly or unfriendly dogs, whether it be with kids or other animals (as long as they are friendly towards me). Let me know how I can be of service to your furry friend! I am a real estate appraiser who works from home so I have plenty of flexibility with my schedule as I set it myself. I already walk my current dog, Hope, 3-5 miles per day and frequently hit up Forest Hill Park or the James River Park System. I will treat your pet or home with the same respect as I would my dog and home. I can either walk your pooch with my girl, or if the pet isn't good with other animals, I can also do separate walks for them!

“I've been friends with Jim for over 15 years. He is genuinely one of the kindest, gentle souls you'll ever meet. Anybody who knows Jim, knows Clyde- his best fur friend and sidekick for so many years. He is great with pets, his own dog & cats adored him their whole lives. I think this is a great way for Jim to fulfill his love for animals, while helping him heal from his own furbaby crossing the rainbow bridge. <3”
About: I’ve had a lot of experience taking care of all different breeds of dogs and have personally owned/trained a wire fox terrier! I have watched/walked dogs for my neighbors/friends for around 3 years and i absolutely love doing it! I currently attend VCU and have classes spread out through the week. My availability is pretty open considering my classes are online/asynchronous. I am also available on weekends if needed! I loved taking my dog Henry on long walks and keep him entertained and active throughout the day! If this sounds like care you would want for your dog please shoot me a message!
About: I've taken care of my own dogs for years so Ill treat your pet like they're my own baby , they deserve to be treated special , have time spent with them, cuddle with, giving kisses just like they would get at home due to most dogs suffer from separation anxiety they miss you badly I know my Pandora does , I just like to make them know there going to be ok and Mommy and Daddy is coming back ! I can take your baby out for a routine walk in the morning and in the afternoon or help with the weekly routine, get there exercise God knows I need mine Lol ! It helps me be organized to stay on a routine. In my home if I’m in my front yard I would have them on a leash probably just take them for a walk. In my backyard it’s fenced so I could let them out put stay out side with them just to make sure they didn’t get out somehow or jump the fence you just never know what’s going to happen I would do the same thing at the clients house also . My pandora is crate trained so when I leave she gets a treat and takes a nap that’s her safe haven place she just goes in and out of there all day by herself anyway. I would think some peoples are like that also . It’s just to make sure she doesn’t get into anything while I’m gone .
“Nora is great with Sophie and was able to help with same day last minute requests. I really appreciate that since I’m struggling with an injury.”
“Alea was great! She was available on short notice to walk my dog, which I am so grateful for! She was really sweet and kind to my dog, Maya. Maya was definitely tired once she got back into the house and plopped down for a nap. I will definitely be using Alea again in the future and can’t recommend her enough!”
“Laurie is the only person I trust to watch my dog Charlie when I am out of town and he loves her so much! Charlie is an 11 year old Havanese, and Laurie has been his sitter for a few years now. Laurie is responsible, makes sure Charlie gets exercise, and he is so excited whenever he gets to stay with her. Charlie has high anxiety and I know Laurie will always give him the love and attention he requires; I would not leave Charlie with anyone else, we love Laurie!”
About: I've been a cat owner for 14 years! I have experience managing animal conflicts, playing/engaging with pets while being respectful of their space and attentive towards their current wants/needs. I have 2.5 years experience working in a doggy-daycare and currently live with a dog (roommates) and cat (mine). That being said, I have had the pleasure of also cleaning up every pet-caused mess under the sun. I love all animals and enjoy caring for them ((: whether it's a walk/jog, playing fetch/with toys, picking up after them, or just sitting with them on the floor. I am off work Thurs-Sat, so I am super flexible on those days only! Happy to work mornings, afternoons, or evenings with any amount of cats and/or dogs. I dont push the pet to do anything they dont want to and make an effort to move at their pace, with gentle encouragment if needed! When caring for pets, I think it's important to be respectful and engaging while also supervising to make sure they are safe.
About: I grew up with dogs and have house sat/pet sat for neighbors, family, and friends. They have relied on me to take care of the pets for multiple days in a row. I typically get up each morning make breakfast and go for a walk, run or do a Pilates work out. I am currently free all hours of the day to dog walk with a very flexible schedule! I have a fenced in yard, my roommate has a small Aussie doodle who is very friendly with dogs and people. I live in a brand new build, so the house is super clean and very pet friendly.
