Alicia N.
Hi, I'm Alicia! I'm a huge animal lover that lives in Brooklyn. I've been around dogs all my life and I hope it stays that way. When I'm not working, I'm at home as a full time college student and mom. I have a min pin named Carmello who keeps me active. When the weather's nice I love taking long walks through the park with my son and min pin. Otherwise, I'm home relaxing and studying.

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.

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.

Giordan N.
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.

Bryan P.
Hello there! My name is Bryan, I'm from the Bronx, and I am a passionate animal lover. I was the kid that regularly watched animal planet and always asked if someone has a pet before visiting their house for the first time. I currently have a BS in Zoology and I plan on going to grad school for physical therapy then get certified to do PT on cats and dogs. I previously owned a chocolate lab for 12 years and now I own a tuxedo cat. I have experience walking and pet sitting dogs for family and friends. I treat all animals with respect and treat them as if they're my own children, rest assured I will do the same for your dogs. Safety and ensuring your dog has a great walk are my priorities.

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! :)

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.

Davel R.
Hello, my name is Davel, and I look forward to meeting you and your dog. I have grown up with a variety of them, some I have owned, others through family. I enjoy my time with them and look for ways to continue this. As a recent college graduate, I assure you I am committed to the call when needed and will do my best to get the job done.

Georgina B.
Hello, my name is Georgie and looking after dogs is my true passion in life. I have lived in three different continents and now consider Manhattan my permanent home. I love art, pop culture and adventure/exploring (Probably just as much as your pup!) Looking after animals has always been a big part of my life; I grew up around dogs in my own household and others too, knowing it was my life's mission to build a career around it. I have a lot of experience with different breeds and also have been to pet training courses to further my abilities. I look forward to meeting you and your fluffy family members!

Molly S.
Hello, my name is Molly! I have worked with dogs and animals of all kinds my whole life. I spent most of my childhood working and hanging around on horse farms in Baltimore County, Maryland. Growing up, we always had Sheperd mutts, so I have a soft spot in my heart for those. These days I spend most of my time working outdoors, as my other job is teaching nature preschool!

Danielle U.
Hey everyone! My name is Danielle, I currently work at the University of Miami and I have an absolute passion for animals :) I would love to be your next dog walker!

Alexis C.
Hey there! My name is Alexis and I am an avid musician, runner & healthy living advocate. I have been a life-long dog lover and I take pride in my love & respect for animals. My beautiful 9-year-old red nose Pitbull named Stella, has been with me since she was a puppy and I do everything for her. She’s a huge ball of energy but never enough for me. I grew up with all kinds of animals and got my first dog when I was 7-years-old. Bonding with animals is second nature to me, from feeding stray cats on a casual walk home, to becoming a vegetarian, aspiring to be vegan. I’ve also boarded dogs for neighbors and friends, it humbles me to be trusted with such a task cause I know how much Stella means to me. I honestly can not wait to meet you and your dog and become his/her new best friend.

Kris A.
Hey there! My name is Kristen or Kris for short. I am a 23 year old trans male and my pronouns are he/his/him (please use my pronouns). I have 2+ years in dog walking and I’ve walked dogs from puppies to retired seeing eye dogs for the blind. I’m experienced in dogs that pull and when walking with me I have them walking by my side in the first or couple walks. I have a 4 year old yorkie mix named Lincoln, a 2 year old Bombay cat named Katnip, and two leopard geckos named Rumplestiltskin and Neptune.

Erin A.
Hey there! My name’s Erin. I’m a southern belle originally from Boca Raton and raised in NC. I’ve been caring for animals and volunteering with them for almost a decade. I’m so passionate about being an advocate for all animals and stoping animal abuse word wide.

Kristina R.

Many family members of mine have always had dogs from Shih Tzu's, Yorkie's, Pitbulls, and more. I have walked dogs as a living. I've walked dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds.

I love being around animals more than anything and I look forward to getting to know you and your pets.
