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.

Abigail P.
Hey there, I'm Abigail! For as long as I can remember, I've been around so many different kinds of animals. I've been with dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, you name it! I grew up with this specific dog who was a beautiful large Dalmation mixed Boxer breed who warmed my heart. She was always loving and protective, which boosted my passion for animals even more. Ever since, I've been caring for all kinds of dogs which has been nothing but amazing experiences. There is no doubt I will make sure you and your doggy will be satisfied!

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!

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)!

I have owned Chihuahuas and a Terrier Poodle and I have been around Terriers, Rottweilers, Boxers, Pit Bulls, Dalmations, Yorkeys, Huskies and many others.

Gabriel C.
Hi! I'm Gabriel. I was born in Cuenca, Ecuador and raised in NYC since I was 7 years old. From my childhood and into my late teens, I had the opportunity to care for Malu (Chow-Chow) Rocky (Shit-Zu) and Bella (Pitbull). They taught me the necessary skills to start off my career as a dog handler. I have a year plus of experience as a professional dog handler, dealing with Dogs of all sizes and age. Allowing me to guarantee your dogs safety and satisfaction when they are under my care. They will be safe when they are being exercised and socialize during play time. I will detect and discourage inappropriate behavior, and implement reward programs to encourage good behavior. Lastly, because I wish others will treat my family members as I would, I would go above and beyond to keep your pet happy. I would go an extra mile if need be. All to make sure your experience here at Swifto is as positive as possible.

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!
