Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“BJ has been amazing with Dawn and Leaf! During our first meeting she paid close attention to their needs and behaviors to make sure everyone would be comfortable. She's since been taking them for walks/runs every other day to use up energy while they stay with my older parents for a few weeks (they cannot walk the pups but wanted to dogsit). BJ sends us regular updates and photos, has earned the trust of Dawn, and even is getting spoiled Leaf to act better on leash! All in all BJ has been a HUGE help to all of us - we are so glad to have met her and wish she also came to Colorado where we live :)”
“Cheryl did an amazing job with my pup! She visited at the time we discussed, she shared the walk that she went on with my pup, and she was very responsive. I know my dog had a great time with her and I felt very comfortable leaving my baby in her hands. Highly recommend!”
About: I grew up always being around dogs, from terriers to German Shepherds. I was the go-to person for my family and coworkers when it came to caring and walking their pets. I also worked at a doggy daycare for about a year, so I have a lot of experience handling all shapes and sizes of pups! I’m looking to walk a few dogs before I begin pursuing my Bachelor’s next fall. I’m currently finishing up my AA, which means that I’m mostly only available during the summer. I work mornings from 8am-12pm. Beyond that, I try to be very flexible! I am currently not offering to host animals in my home. If that changes in the future, however, I have a very friendly dog and four cats with a fenced-in yard. When entering someone else’s home, my primary goal is to be respectful and safe. I will work with you to set clear boundaries and expectations for the care of your pets, and I will do my best to meet those expectations. I am offering drop-ins, but I will only consider staying overnight on a case-to-case basis.
“Yamila took care of my Flaco for a long time. She always provided him with a lot of love and played with him. She has a great affection for animals and knows very well how to handle care and walks. She is amazing! Flaco misses her.”
“Mariah is AMAZING. She’s watched over my babies (3 chihuahuas) every time that I’ve gone on vacation for the last 5 years. I specifically schedule my vacations around hers so that she can be the one to take care of them while I’m gone!”
“Zara does a great job with our yellow lab and guinea pigs. She is very responsible and really cares about animals. She has ambitions to become veterinary technician / doggy daycare owner, and currently works at a kennel taking care of dogs and cats.”
About: I used to take care of my gym owner’s dog for a while every time they went on vacation — letting the dog out, feeding, staying the night with the animals, etc. I also haven’t known a time when my family hasn’t owned a dog. I currently work full time as a manager at a retail store, but I am off every Tuesday and every other weekend. I am willing to use my days off to take care of your beloved pet! I am comfortable letting your dog out if it needs to use the bathroom, taking it on walks, feeding it, kenneling, and much more. I’m pretty comfortable with most things.
About: I’ve been taking care of my own dogs, and others for years! I do have a dog and a parrot I love dearly and look after daily! Any questions feel free to ask!! My schedule is open and I work from home so I will be available consistently throughout the week! I am more than happy to accommodate any special needs! I have a friendly dog, and a yard, along with close access to the Marquette dog park! If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
About: I have been babysitting dogs and cats for almost 5 years now. I will take care of your fur babies and make them feel loved while you’re gone! I have two dogs, a corgi and boxer. I can do weekends Monday-Friday I work 8-5 but can let them out before I go to work and when I get home. Friday-Sunday I available pretty whenever needed if you need me to stay over night or just pop in and out to check in on them and let them out. I prefer if the pets are trained or there is a fenced in yard so I don’t have to worry about them running away. I will also be okay with if they need to be put on a Leash when going outside.
“Angela is fantastic - flexible, reliable, and my pup just adores her. She gives him a good workout on their walks and he comes home tired and content.”
“Bethany has 4 pets of her own which she takes great care of. She also has shown great affection and love to my pet dog when she had her in her company. I would not hesitate in recommending her for any type of Animal sitter role, whether short or long term.”
