Brandon L.
Hey there! I am a former Army Ranger and current student at Columbia University. Training for and running ultramarathons is my passion. Along with a love for running, I also carry a love for all animals. I have raised dogs all of my life and currently have two chocolate labs of my own that get so much affection which I look forward to passing onto your pup as well. In my past job, I have worked with multipurpose military canines so I can handle your furry friend no problem. Big or small your dog is in excellent hands.

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.

Chloe C.
Hey, I’m Chloe! I’m 20 years old and I’m originally from New Orleans. I moved here last August for school but now I’m taking a break to figure out what I really want to do in life. I really love cooking, making music, and of course- dogs!! Most of the dogs I’ve worked with have been pit bull boxer mixes but I’ve worked with so many different types of dogs. From Chihuahuas to Great Danes! Since I’m not allowed to have a pet in my current apartment, I have a lot of love to give to any dog I see, so I can’t wait to meet you and your pets!!

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.

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)!

Gabriel S.
Hi there!! My name is Gabriel. I have been around dogs my entire life. I have owned Chihuahuas and a Terrier Poodle and I have been around Terriers, Rottweilers, Boxers, Pit Bulls, Dalmations, Yorkeys, Huskies and many others. I strongly believe that a person cannot have a better friend than their dog, and I keep that in mind when I'm caring for other people's dogs. I take it as a huge honor and with great responsibility, the privilege to be part of your dog's life.

Darlynne M.
Hi there, friends! I'm a 23 year old Filipina who loves dogs, photography, music, and food! I nanny lovable kids and take care of elderly people on the side. I've worked with different sizes and breeds of dogs! I'm very energetic, responsible, organized, and enthusiastic! I hope to meet you soon!

Joseph M.
Hi! I'm Joe, recently relocated from New Hampshire, the land of happy and free pups! My background is working with large dogs, whether my own Bouvier des Flandres that I've had as pets my whole life or the farm dogs at the dairy farm I used to work at, but I'm a friend to breeds all shapes and sizes. I exhibit the same level of care and responsibility I would expect if I were entrusting my pet with another caretaker!

Amanda O.
Hi! My name is Amanda and I live in the Upper East Side. I’m starting as a freshman in college soon and will be studying biology. I love all animals and plan on being around them for the rest of my life. I don’t have any dogs right now, but I’ve always been around them so I’m very comfortable with dogs of all sizes. I’m also a pet owner myself.

Carissa H.
Hi! My name is Carissa, and I'm a freelance artist, avid gamer, and lifelong animal lover! As a Long Island native, moving to Brooklyn and being a dog walker has been a dream come true. Nothing recharges the creative batteries like stretching my legs, getting some fresh air, and spending time with dogs; my own little one included. Samwise, my throwback (dire) pomeranian, has been at my side for four years. The animal companion to my ranger, he's as keen, loyal, and stout-hearted as his namesake. He, and all the wonderful dogs that were part of my life growing up, have taught me that they're so much more than pets-- they're family. The epitome of unconditional love, they are deeply empathetic and ever true; deserving nothing short of our very best. As a walker, I strive to provide just that!

Krystal A.
Hi! My name is Krystal and I'm an NYU student majoring in Environmental Science and Biology with a minor in French. I love all animals and doggies have a special place in my heart. At home, I have an 11 year old Bichon Frise and a 10 year old Yorkie. I have experience walking and handling dogs of all sizes, ages, and even dogs with disabilities. Whoever your pup is, rest assured they are in good hands with me. :)
