Ivan H.
A life-long animal lover, I have always been the go-to for all of my family and friends' pet-sitting needs. Along with caring for animals since childhood, I have years of experience in the professional pet-care industry. Having loved my own german-shepherd for over a decade, I understand that our dogs are family more than anything, and will treat yours as such.

Apply to school again, but while I wait i'm spending time doing things i'm passionate about. I fill my time with part-time work and some of my favorite hobbies like exercising and joining soccer meetups. Growing up i was surrounded by dogs and I've always looked forward to being with them, as well as working with them. They can be the difference between a lonely home and a fun energetic place full of love and affection. I truly love and respect all animals but hold a deeper gratification for the unconditional love dogs reward us with.

Rachel G.
As someone who grew up with dogs and cats, I have a great understanding on how to treat animals and properly care for their needs. The health and happiness of an animal has always been a top priority and I enjoy helping owners feel comfortable with the care of their pet. When I'm not dog walking I'm designing and developing applications for the web and smartphones. I have over 10 years experience with customer success, love pushing myself when it comes to difficult tasks and feel satisfaction when I'm able to overcome somewhat impossible problems.

Its an unbreakable bond and they are your best friends. I would treat your furbaby as if they are my own and hopefully you'll select me to help you out! Can't wait to meet you guys!

Christian H.
Having raised dogs since I was a child, I've been an avid lover of our four legged best friends for as long as I can remember. I grew up alongside a beautiful German Shepherd who lived a very happy 18 years with my family. I'm an avid fan of the arts, indulging in illustration and the creation of music myself, and I love participating in art-centered events around the city. When I'm not skateboarding around Queens I'm usually at home practicing my guitar or writing poetry.

Chris M.
Hello I am so excited to be part of the Swifto team. I am a born and raised New Yorker and I have been around dogs since I was 5 years old. My family owned 3 small breeds since then: toy yorkie, toy poodle and a chihuahua. I have been around large breeds with my siblings and friends dogs: Great Dane, Chocolate Lab, Pitbull, Husky, and a few hound mix dogs. I have walked and dog sat some of these breeds and feel comfortable with the scale of dogs. Outside of dog walking I am a portrait and events photographer, I have even started a project called dogs of NYC which has been the most fulfilling. I love being around dogs and couldn’t imagine life without them.

Hello my name is Giordan, I'm a carpenter for hire and am now a dog Walker. I have had plenty of experiences with so many pups. My last 2 pups Dora and Buster, were a lovely Chihuahua and Pitbull. Quite the pair they were but I loved them dearly. Another dog that I had the pleasure with working with was Daisy, a type of Terrier with the back 2 legs paralyzed. She loved her walks and to be carried, quite the energetic pup. Being quite the animal lover, I decided to make this more of a profession.

Ivy Joan V.
Hello there, my name is Ivy and I live in Brooklyn. I’m currently studying for the Nursing board exams. I have been a dog lover since my first dog in 2010 and an animal lover since birth. Dogs are very loyal and they never judge and are always happy to see us return, whether we’ve been gone five hours or five minutes. I love looking at their furry face when you go near the leash, and you’re walking out the door. They get so excited and do their tippy dance. This job grants me that opportunity and I absolutely can’t wait to meet you and your pets and take great care of them!

Throughout my life I have lived with 8 dogs of all different breeds. In this time, I have gotten plenty of experience training and walking them. I am so excited to meet all of the adorable pups in New York and take them on our own little adventures!

Kori H.
Hello! My name is Kori, and I'm originally from Texas. I just recently moved to New York with my partner and two precious dogs (an Australian Shepard mix and a Doxin mix) Bean, my Doxin mix, suffers from anxiety, which requires a lot of patience and care. Asher, my Australian shepherd mix, is allergic to food, which also involves a lot of care and attention. Both of my dogs have a daily routine of a 30-minute walk every morning and every evening. They also get to enjoy time with their friends at the dog park every other day. Having been around all different types of dogs since childhood, I've learned to be a responsible dog and pet owner from a very young age. Dogs offer unconditional love and are incredibly loyal animals; they deserve that in return. :) During my free time, I enjoy hiking, bike riding, painting, reading, writing, playing my guitar, and teaching my fur babies new tricks! I'm excited to be a new member of the Swifto team and get to work with other wonderful dog owners providing the best care possible to their fur babies! :)
