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.

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.

Alison S.
Hello my fellow dog lovers and owners! My name is Alison and I am a 30 year old woman living in Brooklyn, NY with my 5 wacky roommates and our 2 precious pups. I have a college degree from CUNY City Tech in hospitality management which I hope to one day use towards starting my own pet-friendly hotel business for the animal loving travelers around the world. I grew up with my first furry best friend, Canuck (no, he was not Canadian), a Llasa Apso/ Jack Russell mix. He sadly passed away at 15 years old when I was in 3rd grade. Fast forward 8 years, and we adopt Benjamin, a 3 month old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy from Missouri. My brother is highly allergic to dog fur, so luckily Ben is a hypoallergenic breed, which made him a perfect addition to our family. Ben lives on Long Island with my parents and brother, and he will be 14 years old in August. In our Brooklyn apartment, we have a mother/daughter duo named Bella and Summer. Bella is a 5 year old “shorkie” (Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix) with the personality of a cuddly cat, and her puppy Summer is a year and a half old “shorkie” (mostly Shih Tzu) who absolutely loves to play fetch and do tricks. They love to run freely at our nearby park and wrestle each other on the grass. I love to come home every day to them and get viciously attacked with snuggles and kisses.

Abbey O.
Hello there fellow clients, My name is Abbey Olivares and I’m excited to be in touch with you and to be engaged with your pet(s). I have been a longlife lover for dogs that my 10 year old and 9 year old, Luna and Star has been with me since they were puppies. I’ve sat for dogs since I was a pre teen and I absolutely love getting to know an animal. I enjoy taking brisk walks for the idea that we both know that we got some exercise in, but it depends on what your dog is up for (I can get a feel of what they want pretty quickly). I can’t wait to get to know your companion and hopefully make a new dog friend.

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.

Alexandra I.
Hello! I am a recent continuing education student at FIT who just finished requirements for a 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 almost 13 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.

I've owned and cared for many types of breeds including a Great Pyrenees, Basset Hound, Rhodesian Ridgeback and Shih Tzu, to name a few. I'm also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete which gives me the strength to handle large dogs. I look forward to meeting you and your pup!

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!

Tim H.
Hello! My name is Tim Hogan, and dogs are my one true passion. Having a lifetime of experience with both a dog of my own and animals I have worked with professionally, I assure you that your pet is in great hands! I provide a calm, affectionate, and confident presence that will keep your dog both happy and healthy. I love what I do and caring for animals never fails to put a smile on my (and dogs') faces!

Tori C.
Hello! My name's Tori and dogs are one of my greatest joys in life! I'm naturally a very empathetic person and have spent my entire life feeling a genuine love for and connection with all animals and, especially, dogs. I've had the privilege of growing up around many different dog breeds and caring for, along with my family, a very goofy and strong male boxer named Duke. As you can imagine, I'm very comfortable around larger dog breeds in addition to smaller breeds. Having graduated from University of Miami, I moved to New York to pursue fashion writing and decided that, in my free time, I might as well get paid to do what I would do for free: spend time with dogs! I understand how invaluable your pup is to you and I will always do my best to ensure that they're safe, cared for, and having fun while in my care. When I'm not walking your dog, you can find me working part-time as a sales associate at Madewell, hitting the gym, and exploring the city with friends. I look forward to meeting you and your dog!

Ingrid Johana B.
Hello!!! My name is Ingrid, I'm from Honduras where I was working as a pharmacist for 7 years devoted time to animal rescue and care. In January 2018 I moved to New York where I live with my husband and our fluffy babies. I have loved animals all my life, especially dogs and cats. In 2014 I had the opportunity to adopt a beautiful dog . If I had not done it, she would have died, because her health was very bad. I take care of her with patience and love. Now she is 8 years old and a happy and healthy dog that loves to walk in Central Park. My cat is 2 years old , I adopted him in 2016. He loves to play with his toys and meet new people. I speak Spanish and I'm studying English at Columbia University. I have high energy, patience and dependability. I love going for long walks regardless of weather. I don't have any breed or size preferences and I'll ask you many questions at our meet-and-greet about your dog's habits and needs. I will make sure your dog feels safe and comfortable and give them the same love that I give to my dog and cat.
