Belmarie M.
Hello! My name is Belmarie. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and I'm currently living in Brooklyn, NY. My passion and love for dogs are my key attributes. I have been around dogs since I was little. I have cared all kinds of dogs from mixed Yorkie to German Shepherd and I have also rescued dogs from the street. At the present time I’m doing my Master Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and my goal is to specialize in Animal Acupuncture. I have a beautiful mini pinscher and a cute grumpy chihuahua mix. I love walking around and being outside with my dogs. I recognize the importance of walking a dog. I will make sure your pet will have a valuable, fun and safe time!

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.

jose o.
H! My name is Jose and I can't wait to be your dog walker.I grew up with and own a dog since I was 9 years old. I've have been with many breeds of dogs. I had the best of times catering for them. From a pup to a full grown. When I am not dog walking I am actually chilling with my cat named Dewii. I know, I know, a cat right? But he eat and drink out of a dog bowl. We run around and he has a harness leash when we go for a special walk or outdoor time. I am so into giving your pet care because I have a special place for wildlife.

Carmen C.
Hello my name is Carmen, I am an Earth Science major studying at Kingsborough. I've been a dog owner ever since I was a child. My last pet was a Labrador mix named Lassie who I cared for over 15 years. Being around dogs is something that I've always loved, and it brings me a sense of comfort just spending time with them.

Lorena C.
Hello my name's Lorena, I'm from Argentina and came here to NYC in 2000. I'm currently working on my bachelors degree for Veterinary Technology. I'm very passionate about all animals. I see them as precious gems that are sacred in life that should never be used for testing, entertainment, eating, clothing, profit, etc. Every furry client I have is treated as they were my own. I have one furry family member named Daisy! She is a young chubby Shih-Poo. *Pet CPR & First Aid certified 2018

Kimberly D.
Hello Puppy Parents! My name is Kim. I am an artist and avid animal lover with 14 years of diverse professional animal care experince. As a dog walker, it is always my top priority to provide the highest standards of animal care to your furry family members while you are away. Whether your pup has a little extra pep in their step or prefers a leisurly stroll, rest assured I will love and treat them like one of my own. "What does that mean," you might ask: Well, animals have been a part of my family since I was very little, be it family dogs or my own furry-children. My family dogs have included 2 chocolate labs, a German Shorthaired Pointer, and a Lab/Beagle mix. I have been the proud parent to a German Shepherd and a Chow/Shepherd mix and a step-parent to a roommate's loveable Pit Bull. All of my four-legged family members were adopted from various animal shelters around the country, treated like Royalty, and loved as deeply as any child could be. I cannot wait to meet you and my new furry friends! Cheers

Alexandra I.
Hello! I am a Part Time FIT continuing education student working on her certificate in Pet Marketing and Pet Design. I graduated from Skidmore with a Bachelors in English Lit and Spanish a couple of years ago. After a series of sales and customer service jobs, I found myself reevaluating my career path and turned to the two things that fill me with joy: animals and design. I do have a dog, Fluff, and my family has had her since she was 10 weeks old. At 12 years old, she prefers to sleep the day away and loves the colder weather. I enjoy walking around the city and doing it with a dog is even better.

Jemma H.
Hello! My name is Jemma and I have been in love with dogs my whole life, being a dog walker is surely the dream job! I have had dogs in my life since the day I was born and grew up with a good understanding and respect for these wonderful animals. Dogs are not just a pet, they are a fully fledged member of your family. Walking around the city is one of my favorite things to do and there is no better way to do this than with a four-legged friend in tow. Outside of dog walking, I am a fan of theatre, live music and comedy and I also like to dabble in various arts and crafts such as jewelry making. I am very excited to meet and become friends with your dog and promise to provide them with the very best care and attention, as well as making sure they have fun!

Tamara A.
Hello! My name is Tamara, but I go by Tammy. I’m from a suburb just north of Chicago, but I received my BA in Psychology at Cornell College in Iowa. I am currently in the process of receiving an MA in Animal Behavior and Conservation from Hunter College. I wish to pursue a career in animal rehabilitation or zoology work, but I am still determining exactly what I want to do. Growing up, there were always at least three dogs in my household. These dogs were usually rescues from the local pet store or strays that my family and I fell in love with. I have owned breeds from Chihuahua to Border Collie, as well as a multitude of mixed breeds. I gained professional experience with dogs at kennels and shelters which helped shape my knowledge of dog behavior and proper handling. I love going for walks and I welcome any chance of having a dog companion to accompany me!

Mariana G.
Hello!! My name is Mariana and I’m studying to become a veterinarian, it’s been my dream job since before I even completely knew what it meant to be a veterinarian/animal lover, I’ve had pets (dogs) around me since before I was even born and can’t think of a time in my whole life when I haven’t had one around me. I love meeting new dogs and I would love to keep your pet healthy, fit, but more importantly, having fun and being happy!! Our pets are our family, they’re constantly showering us with love, I wish I can give them some of that love back through our lovely walks!

Amanda A.
Hello, my name is Amanda and as a dedicated pet owner myself, I understand and empathize with pet owners and their concerns for reliable pet care. Since a child I have always been surrounded by dogs and puppies and have been the go-to person for friends and family when they need a pet-sitter or dog-walker.

djordje d.
Hello, my name is Djordje, my interests are in music, painting and animals. I have taken care of people's animals for most of my life, and will absolutely love to take care of yours!

Doruk C.
Hello, this is Doruk's dog Homie and even though I only exist in his imagination, as a dog I can vouch for his inimitable dog walking skills. I can assure you that not only will Doruk walk your dog, but he will do so much more, like have a never-ending conversation that will leave them even more perplexed than the faux ball throw trick inducing passersby to split in half with laughter (because Doruk is the funniest thing since something really funny) while also taking them to all of the most coveted pee and poop spots in the city, to which only he is privy. He also walks adult humanoids of all sizes, breeds and unfortunate dispositions.

Catherine R.
Hey my name is Cat! I am an artist and an avid dog lover, I have had the privilege to have walked, boarded, lived with and even trained many a dog in my life. I adore all furry companions and feel very protective of every animal I have had the opportunity to chaperon. I also love hiking, reading, yoga and traveling whenever given the opportunity.

Claudia R.
Hey Swifto that cares for every dog with love, and compassion on their walks in New York City. Claudia knows you care deeply about your furry four legged friends and she protects and handles every dog responsibly as if they were her own. Claudia has been trained with Swifto and has a lifetime of experience owning and caring for dogs.

Michael D.
Hey there! I’m Michael. I am a recent high school grad and waiting to go to college in the fall. I am excited about my position at Swifto because I simply enjoy all dogs. I love their honest and pure energy. My motto is “a happy dog is a tired dog”. When I walk dogs I try to walk quickly so they get proper exercise. But I do read the dog first to see what they need. If they have low energy we’ll take it easy. If they are high energy we’ll speed it up.Our family dog Kathy, an Anatolian shepherd, is extremely loyal and smart. She loves to play rope the most. I also spent many hours volunteering at the “new beginnings animal rescue” so I have experience with dogs who require that extra special touch. I can’t wait to meet your pooch and make her/him part of my pack.

Yasmin R.
Hi :-):-) my name is Yasmin ~ I’m 25 years old finishing my associates degree in Science at BMCC. I’m currently enrolled in a summer semester to obtain my pharmacy technician certification. I’m a mother of 4 cats and an aunty of a golden retriever lab mix whom is camera shy ☺️(Like in the Photo above). Rest assure I will take care of your little ones. I value every life form. Animals are very pure, appreciative and unbiased. At heart I have the best interest for their safety and health. I know how it feels to go through sad times with a pet and I do not wish that pain on anyone. I strive to achieve a bonding relationship with one another , to make the walk more comforting and stress relieving!
