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.

Mariana V.
Dogs have always been my passion, from a very young age I grew up with them which has created a special bond for me. I have worked in dog shelters with the intention of giving them love and the best. over time we realize that more than a pet they are our family.

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.

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!

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.

Jacinda A.
Hey! My name is Jacinda, I'm a free spirit that loves long adventurous walks, food is my bestfriend and no I didn't just describe your dog, but I couldn't be more excited to make friends with your pup, I could assure you that your dog will be safe with me and love me just as much as I love them!

I have owned multiple pets over the years but do not have one now due to condo restrictions. I do keep saltwater fish. I am extremely outgoing and energetic and I cannot wait to meet my new furry friends!

Dora R.
Hi my name is Dora. I have grown up around dogs my whole life. From the age of 4 to 16 I had a Shih Tzu named Misty. I currently have an 8 year old Pekapoo. 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. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a dog enjoying their walk or play time and even meal time. I love being around animals more than anything and I look forward to getting to know you and your pets.

Tyler R.
Hi there! I'm Tyler, an SF Bay Area born-and-raised writer, editor, marketer, and avid dog lover who's lived in New York for the better part of the last decade. I’m also a proud dog dad to a 2-year-old French Bulldog. After graduating from The New School with a degree in Literature, I worked for a variety of media-focused startups, primarily in the women's lifestyle sphere. In my spare time, you'll find me writing, reading, exploring the latest museum exhibits, and more often than not, wandering the city for hours, taking it all in. My passion for pups started from a young age; I'm from an extremely animal-friendly household, and grew up with a wide variety of pets, from rabbits to dogs. I've been caring for our four-legged friends since age 10, and I can safely say there's nothing in the world that makes me more joyful than spending quality time with these lovely creatures. I have extensive experience walking and babysitting dogs of all shapes, sizes, and particularities. These pups are our best friends; they're always there for us, and they deserve the utmost respect and the best sort of treatment imaginable. When your dog is happy, I'm happy. I hope for the opportunity to meet your adorable pup soon!

Melissa M.
Hi there! My name is Melissa and I want to be your dog walker for the rest of your life! I'm an avid animal lover and vegan no less. I'm sure you'll find, as you get to know me, that I put your pooch first before anything else. I've owned various breeds of dogs ranging from cavachons to a great dane. I absolutely love your furry four legged friend as if he/she were my own family member. Why, my eyes light up everytime I see a dog. I absolutely adore those creatures as if they were my own. I have no interests other then dogs. j/k My interests include, from trips to Central Park to basking in the sunlight at fire island. I love the beach. Just to let you know, I love your friend, your dog, like no other. And I promise to be, the main person you go to, when you need your dog walked. I think you'll like your dog walked a few times a day by me. Your furry friend and I will go where no one thinks of going. We'll run, play and stay out all day if you want us to! I think you'll like having me over your place, for a little one on one therapy with your beloved dog. I think being around your dog will bring the both of us great companionship and happiness for years to come. About me? It's all about you and your dogs joy! Coming over to pick up your dog is my first priority, so I'll probably want to see your dog each and every day of the week! That's all that's on my list of things to do. So book me for the rest of your time here on earth, and I'll see about showing your dog a good time for as many hours as you'd like to have him/her with me for! I look forward to hearing from you and your dog. Book me today! ❤️

Anna H.
Hi there! I may be new to New York but I'm not new to spoiling your pet. Dogs have been part of my life since birth and I can't imagine life without them. Outside of the three dogs I've owned, I've also foster for my local shelters. Currently, I've fostered 14 cats and dogs over the last year and half. Luckily, all of them found homes as soon as they were ready to leave my home. I have taken care of bottle-fed puppies, nursing mothers, tempermental dogs, and senior dogs. I can administer medication, do basic training and crate train as well. I'm looking forward to meeting you and your dog(s)!
