Sahar L.
My name is Sahar! I've been a dog walker for about a year now! I love dogs of all sizes: Small, medium, large, extra large, extra medium! From poodles to pitbulls, I'll make sure your dog will have its day! An awesome day!

Sallie L.
My name is Sallie and I am 25 years old originally from Atlanta, GA. I am currently taking time off of school to work and enjoy my first few months in the city. In school I am a Biology major and a Psychology minor, hoping to obtain a career in animal behavior. I have owned a Golden Retriever named Lola since 2004 so I love big dogs. I also volunteered at an animal shelter for about 6 months before moving to New York. At the shelter I did numerous jobs, anything from dog walking to assisting the vet techs. I hope that having this job with Swifto will help me on my path to having a successful career with animals.

Louise W.
I love dogs and I love making dogs happy. All my life, I have either owned dogs, cared for dogs, or walked dogs. With this experience, I've found that a dog's physical health is the key ingredient to a happy dog. Given the chance, I would be very dedicated to helping your dog achieve this, as well as giving your dog the care and attention they deserve while you are away.

Gerald M.
I pride myself in offering a unique experience during each walk and love the time I spend with my dogs during thorough walks that engage by doing occasional simple commands such as sit, heel and down. Dogs have always been a part of my life beginning with with a Shi Tzu growing up. Currently I have two dogs, who are Chow cocker spaniel mixes.

Shakera C.
I'm a college student that has owned dogs for as long as I can remember. I love dogs! I currently own two dogs. I have a Chihuahua/Pug mix named Kilala and a red nose pit bull named Melo. I also owned a rottweiler named Chyna, but she unfortunately passed. In my spare time I like to read, hang out with friends, go to the movies, and work on my photography.

Christopher N.
My name is Chris. I have been walking dogs for about 8 years now and love it. I am pursuing my PhD in Philosophy right now and hope to some day be a college professor.

Elizabeth B.
Great to meet you! My name is Brooke, and I am a recent NYC transplant from our nation's capital. I am currently finishing work toward my Masters degree in Public Policy from King's College London and am excited to join the Swifto team as a walker. My two pups- Bear (pictured) and Biggie, both Keeshonds- opted to remain in DC with my family, so I often find myself missing canine companionship. I am hoping to make some new furry friends while I'm here, and would love the opportunity to explore this new city with some seasoned pets. Rest assured, I have plenty of experience with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. Let's make a date!

Ruben R.
Hello my name is Ruben! I grew up in the country and have been around animals all of my life. My first dog was from a litter of mutts that were born under my parents house. I have worked with dogs, cats, chickens, horses, and many other kinds of animals. I love that animals don't judge and there is no better example than the unconditional love dogs give us. I will care for your doggy and make sure he/she has a great day outdoors!

Kelly L.
My name is Kelly. I've been working with Swifto since summer 2014 and have been loving it. I grew up with two corgis. They are now elderly and live with my parents in Michigan. Here in New York I have two guinea pigs and a fluffy white cat. I did my undergrad at NYU and studied political science. I am very interested in India and have been twice now. I can also speak Hindi and Urdu.

Benjamin S.
Hi! My name is Ben and I moved to NYC from Chicago about nine months ago. I spent my last year in Chicago working at a start-up company specializing in dog products. Several of my coworkers would bring their dogs to work and it was part of my job to walk and play with them. I enjoyed this very much and look forward to walking dogs in NYC. Outside of work I am an artist and musician living in Ridgewood, Queens. I can be found at gallery and music events city wide. I look forward to meeting you and your dogs!

Olivia C.
Hi! I've grown up with dogs, and have had the opportunity to know many different breeds, from tiny yorkies to great danes, and love spending time with them!

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.

Renata C.
Hi! My name is Renata, I am currently a full-time student at NYU and I'm a bon(e)afide dog lover! This was clear from the age of two, when our German Shepherd Becks (yes like the beer ha!) and I became inseparable. He slept under my crib at night, and I accompanied him (and sometimes shared his kibble!) at his bowl during meal times. Since then I've been lucky to share my home with two Australian Cattle Dogs and most recently a Terrier Mix named Chinela, who has been my best friend for 10 years. I look forward to meeting and getting to know your best friends and exploring the city with them!

Jack R.
Whats up Dog (or owner)! I'm a dog walker by day and stand up comedian by night. When I was a kid I wanted to be a dog when I grew up. I realized that was an unobtainable goal so I settled on professional comedian.

Nicholas W.
Hi, my name's Nick and I'm currently a student at NYU. I've been around dogs my entire life and I love dogs! I've owned a total of three since I was a child. I also volunteer at Animal Care & Control of NYC in Brooklyn as a dog walker. So I have experience walking all kinds of different dogs with different personalities. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Lauren Ann G.
My name is Lauren and I am originally from San Diego, California and grew up with two dogs; a golden retriever and an Australian shepherd. I am a huge dog lover and overall adventure lover.

Jennifer M.
Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am 24 years old. I am very responsible and organized. I have dog sat, boarded, transported, and dog walked for the families that I nanny for, and I also grew up partially raising a dog! I am fully capable of taking good care of dogs, I always make sure that they have fresh water and are happy and healthy! I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts and I am currently doing freelance design and creative work, working in a restaurant, nannying, and dog walking in New York City.

Erin W.
Growing up I had a delightful mutt named Zibby, a Beagle named Buster, and a Collie named Chester. I have also been temporarily responsible for a Pug, a Wire Hair Fox Terrier, an English Springer Spaniel, a German Shepherd, and a Standard Poodle. I currently have a 1 year-old Beagle-Chihuahua mix named Oliver. The relationship I have formed with this little guy has inspired me to take the skills I've learned training him and being able to work with other animals. When I'm not doing something doggy with my little buddy, I can be found playing my French horn around town, performing improv comedy, and knitting up a storm on my couch.

Lorena C.
Hello my name's Lorena, I'm from Argentina and came here to NYC in 2000. I'm currently working on my Associates degree for Veterinary Technology. My dream job would be to become a wildlife Vet and so I plan to apply to a University for Veterinary Medicine after receiving my associates or either my bachelors degree in Vet Tech. I'm very passionate about 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've had was treated as they were my own. I also soon plan to volunteer for Animal Haven and Best friends Animal Society to spend for time helping furry gems by giving them all my love and finding them permanent homes!

Tiara P.
I am full of energy. When I am introduced to new dogs it's like making a new friend. So its a joy that takes over me to impress my new k9 friend. I take very good care of my friends and they mean a lot to me. So you trusting me with your dog means the world to me. And I want you to know that I plan to give nothing but the best service, as I do for my own dog. I have recently worked for a doggy daycare and for groomers for 2 years. I have experience with all different breeds and sizes.
