“Veronika is the best! I am home recovering from knee surgery and my dog is not thrilled about leaving me when she arrives. Veronika has done a great job coaxing her and getting her to walk!”
About: I have had animals in my life for over 55 years. Many dogs and cats even a horse. I have always enjoyed taking care of animals I am currently retired and have lots of time to keep your pet company in my home. My schedule is very open for boarding your dog. I have a large yard and a beautiful walking path across the street from my home. I have 2 cat's that are fine with other visitors.
About: I have taken care of dogs since I was 12 years old. I would do in home visits with my neighbors dogs, take them for walks, play, feed them, etc. I support my friends with taking care of their dogs as well. I love to walk and play fetch with my lovable German Shepherd Dog Basil! I work full time as a teacher, so I am available during the Summer months or winter break weeks. During those times I am very flexible. I have a fenced in yard at my house and when I walk my dogs I use a waist leash. If I ever play fetch at a park, then I use a lead to help support my pet.
About: I have always had pets and have a very special place in my heart for all animals, I love to know and ensure that they’re being well taken care of! My parents both work full time, my mom at the hospital and my dad running his business, and my little sister is in high school so a lot of the time, it’s up to me to make sure my dogs are fed, walked, cuddled and that they have their daily treats! I always try to make sure all fur babies are feeling comfortable and safe, my dogs are very playful and energetic and love everyone but I know not all animals are like that. I want to make sure they’re comfortable in the environment they are in.
“Jim has been such a positive addition and our puppy Juno is so excited to see him and her behavior has become noticeably calmer since starting her walks with Jim.”
“She was a champ with my jumping rambunctious puppy. Prompt and she did a little more than the time that she had scheduled”
“Jim is the biggest dog lover I know. He has had dogs his whole life and knows a lot about how to care for them. Jim is patient with dogs and treats them all lovingly. He is also trustworthy and responsible.”
About: I grew up with german shepherds, and adopted my cat just over a year ago. I've pet-sat all ages of dogs, and have some experience administering medications to both dogs and cats. I promise to treat all furry friends as if they are my very own! I'm currently in graduate school, and have a varied class schedule. I can make mornings work most days, and afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Weekend availability will vary so please reach out to me with inquiries about any day to find a time that works! I take pet care instructions very seriously. As a pet owner myself I strive to treat every pet how I would want my own pet to be treated. I'm happy to work with you to find a plan that works for everyone!
About: I am a dog trainer and enthusiast! I come from a family of trainers so it’s been my passion since a child. I entered my first training competition at age 7… I came 2nd place🥲. I often tell my clients I truly love dogs more than I love people because they’re so innocent and loving, and the ones with problems are more than willing to get better with the right help. I truly believe better your dogs life in any way in return betters yours. I abide by that and try to better the dog in my profile everyday! I have a training page with information and videos on Instagram. The name is : locd_in_canine I currently am dog training throughout the week where I meet my clients at their home, or a near park, or sometimes my clients meet me by my home. I also work security so I pick up shifts when I’m not meeting with my clients and their fur friends. Dog training is literally my profession so I spend most of my day with dogs. I have 4 to keep yours company. And also crates to ensure your dogs safety and comfortablity in my home.
“Kari is always on time and so great with Randy!!”
“Brittney has been absolutely incredible! She goes above and beyond to communicate and provide care. Being new to using a dog walker, we were not quite sure what to expect--but Brittney has made us feel so comfortable and relieved knowing our dog is in safe hands! We are so appreciative and will definitely continue to book weekly walks with her.”
“Very reliable and nice. Has been able to help us out with just a few hours notice. He has been very trustworthy and supportive of our crazy new puppy.”
About: My name is Gisela, I love all animals and I have experience with cats and dogs, big and small, young and old. I’ve had pets my entire life and for the past three years I’ve started or others in addition to my own. If you have an athletic or active pet, then I am the host for you! We love going on, long walks, and exploring, as well as spending time in the dog park off leash, and on leash. And if your pooch is not as active, we can always bring the activities to their level of comfort, ensure they are happy. Currently, I am only available in the mornings. I do work evenings, but my schedule is very flexible as long as I’m contacted with enough anticipation, which is normally about a week before. I live in an apartment with parks and trails nearby, so lots of running around and play time staying here with me and my pet! He is very social and loves to have company, friendly to other dogs and shares toys.
“Kelsey was great and very responsive! I look forward to using her over and over again. She always keeps me updated and takes lots of pics. I enjoy reading Bear’s report card after her visit and I trust that he is in great hands when I am away. Would recommend 100%.”
“Estefania is wonderful with my dog (pupoy). She is very patient and kind with him, and he loves his walks with her. She is also very dependable and accommodating. I don’t know what we would do without her!”
“Matthew was super helpful! We came in from out of town and he was very accommodating and communicative and allowed us to spend some quality time with our grandma (whose building does not allow dogs) so we really truly appreciate it!! Will definitely use Matthew again next time we’re in town! 🤗”
