Sierra C.
Hi, my name's Sierra. For all my life, I have always had a natural love and respect for all animals. Growing up, my family got a very energetic puppy who I was partially responsible to care-for and train. Although it wasn't an easy task to train her, with lots of love and the right methods she is now very well behaved:) Through this experience, I feel prepared to take care of all types of personalities and needs that dogs may have! Aside from my dog experience, I love to be outside and exercise when I have the time!

Jesse B.
I am a freelance journalist and a dog walker. I recently finished a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies at NYU. Aside from my interest in dog walking, I am also passionate about music, history and philosophy. I love spending time outdoors and exploring the city. I also like to cook, go to concerts and movies, and have good conversations with friends. My family owned a miniature pinscher named Skippy when I was growing up. Since then, I have also lived with two roommates who had dogs, a beagle and a golden retriever.

Veronica T.
I am currently a student and a freelance visual artist who loves animals. My dog who I adopted about three years ago inspires me to do many things, such as fostering, being creative, and becoming a dog walker. Dogs are truly your best friend and the greatest companion. As a dog walker, I will definitely want to build a connection with your dog! :)

Haden B.
I have two Australian Labradoodle girls named Piper and Olive. They are my absolute best friends! We love to go on walks and play outside. When I am not hanging out with my dogs, I enjoy trips to the beach or staying home to watch a good show or movie.

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.

Morexi M.
I started out watching my friends' and family's dogs here and there and still do from time to time. I've had my Shiba since 2015 and have really gotten the hang of knowing what it takes to care for a dog. I sometimes help my friends out with their 4 very different pups.

Patrick S.
I'm a musician who loves to be in touch with the animal kingdom, specifically dogs. My goal is to broaden my horizons and interact with more breeds that way I can understand the nature of dogs that much more.

Jonalee D.
I'm Jonalee and I am from the downtown Brooklyn area. I have always had a love for dogs since I have always grown up around them. I have plenty of dog walking experience in the past being a dog walker and it's always been something that I love to do. Being a dog walker in the past inspired me to adopt one of my own, a Yorkie, Poodle and Dachshund mix named Lana. I'm looking forward to walking your furbaby!

Karen M.
My name is Karen, but I go by Ren! I use any pronouns. I am a nursing student in East Harlem. I have lived in West Harlem with my partner for the past 4 years. I've got over 10 years of professional experience walking all breeds and sizes of dogs. Dogs are my passion, and I always treat every dog like they are my own!

Melody L.
My name is Melody, caring for animals has been my life-long ambition! I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals and working towards getting more involved in Animal Advocacy to end animal suffering and exploitation. I grew up with 2 pups & many cats so I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your fur baby, I want to ensure they are as happy as can be!

Rahan C.
My name is Rahan Cotterel (first name is pronounced ‘Ryan’); I’m a Brooklyn, NY native as well as creative in the fine arts – my medium of choice is medium format analog photography with a strong focus in environmental portraiture. Personality wise, I’m an open book, at least once in the company of others. My levels of self awareness is at an all time high. My positive energy is infectious. So when speaking on the time being spent with your canine just know that your pooch is in good hands.

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.

Ruth P.
Pleased to meet you! I'm Ruth and I've been raised in New York my entire life. As an animal lover, I've worked in the field of pet care to offer my services in any way that I can to the community. Working with cats and dogs has always been a rewarding experience that I plan to work with other types of animals in the future. I have experience working with pets in a daycare and shelter environment, from being a dog handler to a kitty companion. I'm comfortable working with both small and large dogs of different temperaments. When I'm not working, I come home to care for my loving Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix and my two rescue cats.
