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! :)

Maureen K.
Hello! My name is Maureen, I am a graduate student studying French horn performance. I have always loved dogs, and I can't wait to meet yours! I grew up with Mia, a German Shepherd, and Lily, a Shepherd/Keeshond/? mix. I love taking long walks (or short walks!) in any kind of weather. Each and every dog is unique, and I look forward to getting to know your dog's special quirks and personality!

Rachael C.
Hello! My name is Rachael, and I'm originally from Pennsylvania but moved to New York last summer. Currently, I'm a graduate student at NYU, studying publishing. I love the following things: writing, reading, and petting dogs. As a child, I grew up with different kinds of pets, but my most beloved pet was my dog, Mia. She was a Collie/German Shepard mix--very feisty and friendly. Mia loved walks, and I enjoyed taking walks with her. Walks provide a strong bond between human and dog and provide a source of fun and exercise. As a walker, I strive to provide the same things for your furbaby.

Tim H.
Hello! My name is Tim, 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!

Gerardo G.
Hello, my name is Gerardo! I have a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Public Health. I’m honored of being the father of a wonderful Bichon Frise named Solin, who I’ve had for over 5 years now. Since I was a little kid, I’ve always been an animal person, especially dogs. I have years of experience walking my neighbor’s Shih Tzu, my friends Boxer, and my current dog. So, I’m very comfortable with small and larger breeds. I really enjoy walking dogs since I believe that they deserve some fun time to discover this vast world we live in! I can’t wait to get to know you and your faithful companion(s). Not only will they enjoy their walk and keep them safe, but I will ensure to give them the same love I give my dog.

Shinquella G.
Hello. My name is Shinquella but most people call me Shin. I have a passion for animal care that I have pursued since my teenage years. When I’m not out walking the good boys (or girls!), I am pursuing my interest in cosmetology as a self taught makeup artist. Whether it’s applying mascara, or taking Rex for a walk I execute everything I do with patience, love and care. I enjoy the bond I have with each individual dog as I get to know them through walks and other fun activities.

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)!

Alice D.
Hi There! My name is Alice and I'm an artist by day, musician by night, and a full-time dog lover. If it barks, woofs, boofs, yips, yaps, or even just quietly stares from across the room making judgments about your lifestyle choices - I love 'em all! (Cats also welcome here... albeit much harsher judgments). Originally from Westchester, I grew up with a wonderful little beagle named Winnie and had tons of neighborhood dog friends. It was tough to bid farewell when I headed off to college, but luckily I had dog loving professors that would let me pet sit for them in exchange for extended deadlines on papers. (Because honestly, how can I focus on an assignment when a cuddle is requested from a floofy boi). In addition to the less glamorous responsibility of poop management, I've been known to teach dogs some basic tricks such as not pulling on leashes, sitting, or laying down. I'd be more than happy to reinforce any training that your dog might be learning. I've got good vibes and energy that I'm sure your dog will be excited to walk with. And if he doesn't, then I also sometimes smell like bacon. And that's just good for everyone.

Marco R.
Hi there! My name is Marco and I grew up in downtown Brooklyn Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill area. I’ve been working with dogs all around for about 6 years and have plenty experience supervising, handling, walking, grooming and of course giving the pup the attention they deserve. You can count on me to take care of your pup when your not home or at work etc. The happiness and well being of your child that barks is my number 1 top priority.
