Dog Walking in Toumey Park, Tucson
Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“Rachel is caring and showed concern for Chelsea because of the heat. It was already 90°at 8:30 this morning when the walk was. She kept to the shade and off the pavement during the walk to protect my dog's feet. When I suggested changing the time for her walk, she was very agreeable. It's too hot now for dog's (and people) to be walking.”
“It was super last minute like I needed her service the next day and I thought a dog walker wouldn't work since my dogs can be a bit scary when you first meet them. But Courtney didn't fear and was really good with them! She is always on time and gives me the best picture updates of their walks.”
About: I have taken care of or had pets since I can remember. My current doggo (snowball) is a jack russell rescue, who has brightened my family's day with his presence. I have experience with all types of pets, timid or rambunctious, and look forward to taking care of your babies in your absence. I am new to Tucson and look forward to exploring the city while walking with some of my best friends (your doggos) leading the way. Our pets need a help when we aren't home. Whether you need me to stop by to let 'em out back and top off their bowls or you need me to take them for a walk and stretch out those legs, I am happy to help.
“Michelle has a fantastic talent for connecting with and caring for animals! In the time I have know her she has cared for all sorts of critters ranging from your standard cats and dogs to more unusual animals like chickens and horses. Beyond that, Michelle is a kind and responsible person with an impressive work ethic who goes above and beyond for any job she takes on. With her strong character and integrity I would trust her with my pet for any situation from dropping in to take care of my cat for a quick weekend trip or taking care of my cat and house for weeks at a time.”
About: Are you looking for affordable pet care from someone who is committed to force-free, positive reinforcement methods? Look no further! Because I'm new on Rover and wish to establish a regular clientele, you have my guarantee that my rates are frozen until the end of April 2024. With this, I hope to create a great reputation in our community and move into training and/or day care :) Skills & Experience: -Cared for family dogs for 15 years including daily walks, senior care, and behavior training. -Currently own a 4 year old cat & a 1 year old puppy. -Well versed in R+ (positive reinforcement) training & dog behavior. I'm passionate about force-free care and am unwilling to provide services under other circumstances (this means no shock/choke collars, no pain, threats, intimidation, or coercion tactics.) I’ve cared for a wide variety of dogs throughout my life, and I strive to become attuned to each animal I care for. I’m truly happy to wipe your bulldog’s face folds, go on a long walk to get out that endless pitbull energy, play enrichment games with your cattle dog, or be willingly ignored by your cat! Being self-employed, I have a lot of flexibility throughout my week. As such, I’m happy to provide drop-in visits, house sitting, boarding, and dog walking services any time of the day or week! During your service, I vow to always arrive on time, keep your pets’ routines intact and make sure they receive ample love and attention. I’m happy to help around the house as well if you’d like. When you’re away, I want you to have the peace of mind knowing that your pets are home and well taken care of.
“Makena was awesome! She sent us photos of our pups on their walk and they looked like they were having so much fun! She sent a detailed report and we know our pups are in great hands!”
“Abbey is phenomenal! She’s watched our Rocky and Basil multiple times and is so reliable. She sends frequent updates, pictures and treats the puppies super well. Would definitely recommend her to others to care for their animals!”
“Very professional and friendly and took note of special instructions! Will book again”
“Melissa is awesome, reliable and a great communicator! She has helped me with dog-walking and feeding, and she even helped me out on super short notice recently. My dog loves her and I appreciate her professionalism very much!”
About: I’ve been around dogs my whole life, I love them and treat them like my babies! I’ve worked at Petsmart at the doggie day camp and pet hotel and I’ve also worked with my mom when she had a kennel. I have dogs of my own and I love them more than anything! I have had a lot of experience with dogs and I do know how to take care of them and handle them pretty well. I’m available pretty much anytime of the week, all I ask is that you let me know in advance so I can schedule everything and have everything ready for you baby. I assure you Your dogs will be in good hands, I’ll take care of each one as if they were my own. I have a cat and a dog of my own and they are like my children. I love being around them and playing with them. I’ve had experience working In a pet hotel where I took care of the needs of animals all day. I take care of them as if they were my children. I would make sure they have everything they needed and make sure their day is a fun one. I know dogs can be hyper and get super excited which makes the job that much more fun! I also have a bit of training in my background which can be fun and enriching for dogs!
“Kayla did a great job watching our dog! She followed our instructions to a T and sent plenty of updates. My only complaint is that she was so good with our dog that he was actually sad when she left! We will certainly hire her again.”
“Dulce is an incredibly kind person in general, and adores animals on top of that. When she takes care of our two cats, they get more love than they do from us! She is one of the few people our cats don't object to having as a "sitter," and don't give us the cold shoulder when we return.”
About: I have been dog walking in NYC, when I lived there. So I interacted with all types of dogs & ages. I have also had my own rescue dog for a little over 3 years now. Gosh I love her. We do a lot of running for the ball and pets. I also give her short sessions of massage. I am a singer & love to sing for my pets. It usually calms them down if they are agitated or hyper. I don't have another job at the moment so I am pretty flexible. If you want me to stay over at your house, not just walk the fur baby, I'd like to come by and say hi prior to booking. Nina, my 4 year old border collie/blue heeler rescue, is generally a loner. She tolerates other dogs as long as they don't try to hump her :) - but she doesn’t play a lot. She only plays with humans & balls. Another dog is welcome here, but if it is aggressive that could cause issues. We do have a big fenced in yard and a doggie door so dogs here can go in and out as they please. We also have 2 chickens, but they have their own fence around. They're used to dogs. So dogs here would be free to roam in/out as well as chill on the inside floor or dog bed. If I sit at your house, I will make sure to know your routines so I can try to do the same for your pet that you do. I hope to be able to give them lots of pets & cuddles. If they are allowed on the couch I will gladly nap with them. Or we can play with toys or do some simple training.
About: I’ve had dogs in and out of my family since I was 15. I love all sorts of breeds. I love walking, running and playing fetch with pups. And I love training dogs as well (I am not a professional trainer). I’m currently working part time and looking to add a few furry friends to my days. I’m available most morning and afternoons. The occasional nights! I have a fenced in yard and one friendly dog. The yard is turf. We also have a puppy pool and slaps pad that my dog loves and would be happy to share.
“Great job! Arrived on time and spent the whole time with my pup, even when he didn’t want to go on a walk! Sent lots of pictures and really cared for my pup.”
“Nancy is the most caring, compassionate, and trustworthy person I know. My fur babies are safely in her care often! You can’t do better than Nancy for your petsitting needs.”
“Kaylee did amazing with my pets and I will be booking her in the near future! She kept me updated everyday! I would definitely recommend her!”
About: I did Reiki for nervous pets at Pectco adoption clinic. The store relied on me to calm anxious pets before they met their new owners. I teach yoga and stress reduction 🧘♀️ meditation and most dogs are immediately drawn to my aura and I love being in their presence. I have plenty of time between my yoga classes. I teach yoga and meditation classes in the mornings and some late evenings. I can work with your schedule. I have a a loving calm and playingful disposition that animals are drawn to. The safety and care of your animal is my primary concern.
“I have known Jacob for over 20 years. He is a truly great human - kind, compassionate, devoted to doing his best to make the world a better place. He has the kind of playful vibe to which dogs are naturally attracted. I know several lucky humans call him friend (I am one of them), but I truly believe his best friend is his dog, Apollo. He has had a long-time interest in dogs, their behaviors, their emotional and physical health, and the gift they are to our lives. He has cared for friends and family members’ dogs on many occasions. Any dog would be fortunate to be nurtured by him.”
“Jonah has been taking care of my dog Archie for the past 3 weeks and has been awesome and so patient and sweet with him. Since I've had Archie I've been WAH so has some seperation anxiety. Now having to return to the office, Jonah has been there for him going above and beyond and even coming in on short notice. He's making progress at Archie's pace taking baby steps and providing updates on all his mile stones. We hope continue working with Jonah in the future!”
