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.

Susannah B.
Hi my name is Susannah. I am a cheerful and positive person. I love animals especially cats and dogs. I have experience with both cats and dogs. I myself have both a cat and dog at home! I am also experienced with giving meds. I I hope I get a chance to meet you and your dog.

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!

Jaida F.
Hi there! I am a 21 year old graduate student with a degree in Musical Theater! Art, animals and volunteer-ship have been a long part of my life, ever since I became a Girl Scout at four years old and I can now proudly call myself a Lifetime Member. Something funny to know about me is that one of the first things I wanted to be when I grew up was a Veterinarian, that is until four year old me found out there would be a lot less cuteness involved and a lot more blood (and I was a particularly squeamish kid). However, my love for animals never diminished. I have my own dog that I helped my father train when I was ten and dogs have always been a large part of my life, from volunteering at animal shelters through Girl Scouts to playing and raising dogs with my great grandparents on their farm in North Carolina. I cannot wait to meet and love on your pup!

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)!

Jenna D.
Hi there! My name is Jenna, and I would love to meet your dog! I've grown up with dogs and I have experience of taking care of dogs of all ages and sizes. I take care to follow every instruction you may have while also treating your dog with as much love and care as my own. I have a sweet cavapoo, Ogie, who is two years old. I am also an accompanist/music director and I love to play the piano.

Jennifer S.
Hi there! My name is Jennifer and I'm a lifelong animal lover with experience in a vast array of creatures. I am a very proud dog mom to two stunning puppers. Zeppelin, a vibrant, loving Chihuahua mix and Gator, a sweet, albeit shy, Toy Aussie are the loves of my life. Nothing makes me happier than exploring all the city has to offer with my kiddos. I'm super excited to meet your babies and do the same!!

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.

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.

I as a kid grew up with different animals some of them a cockatoo, a monkey, and a rabbit. I choose to play with the dogs, a German Shepherd and a Collie it was my duty as a child to take care of them, doing this made me appreciate them and have fun with them and had Lots of adventures wit them as well.

Willa B.
Hi there, my name is Willa. My favorite passion has always been working with animals and because of this, I've had a large range of animal-centric jobs such as working on a farm caring for horses and wild stock, cleaning out snake tanks at a Wildlife Center, corralling loose goats at the Children's Zoo, preparing meals for a range of animals at the Bronx Zoo, cuddling up to and caring for at least thirty dogs at a doggy daycare, taking dogs on long walks through Central Park, working as a Adoption Counselor for puppies from Puerto Rico and more. Even though I've worked with a variety of animals, dogs have always been my absolute favorite. And because of this, I can't wait to meet and take care of your pup. <3

Annie K.
Hi! I'm Annie. I'm from NYC and just moved back here after going to college in England. My dogs are two sweet, rescued terrier mixes named Joey Tribbiani and Pippa. I have years of experience owning, walking and training dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. I adore dogs and can't wait to meet yours!

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.

Rebecca A.
Hi! I'm Rebecca, and I have always been a dog person. Since I was born, I have had dogs by my side. From the sweetest collie, to the wildest beagle, I love them all. I currently have three cats, so I am definitely an animal lover. Outside of dog walking, I love to kickbox, draw, and watch nerdy sci-fi TV shows. Also a huge fan of musicals, both movie and stage.

Aaron G.
Hi! I’m a dancer and choreographer originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma and I’ve just moved to New York City this summer. I’ve had dogs as a part of my family since I was a toddler all the way up until I moved from Oklahoma. I’ve spent time around dogs of all sizes, temperaments and personalities. I love to be outdoors and to spend time with animals, and I’m so excited to work with you and your wonderful pets!

Amy B.
Hi! My name is Amy and I am a student at Fordham University Lincoln Center. I am majoring in dance, so I am lucky enough to be training at the Alvin Ailey School as well. I grew up in South Carolina with two beagles and lots of cats, and my current dog (Beauregard) is pretty much my best friend. Along with taking care of Beau, I volunteer at my local animal shelter in South Carolina and have been walking dogs professionally since November of 2018. Not only do I love dogs, but I love being outdoors and exploring the city! Getting to simultaneously hang out with dogs and take in New York City gives me endless joy, and I can't wait to meet your dog!

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!

Ana Caroline V.
Hi! My name is Caroline. I’m a Brazilian Japanese mix 23 year old. I walked dogs for 2 years. Dogs make me really happy, they’re so loyal and sweet and make me laugh every time when they do something funny !!! I love my job.

Conor F.
Hi! My name is Conor. I'm a freelance writer and I've been around dogs my whole life. I have a ton of experience with big dogs, especially rottweilers. I love making friends with dogs, and I'm looking forward to meeting yours.

Eleora-Sian A.
Hi! My name is Eleora-Sian and I recently moved to Brooklyn from St. Paul, Minnesota. As far back as I can remember, there has always been a dog in my home. Over the years my family has cared for five great pups. Different breeds, different ages, etc., each one with their own unique personality. Although my professional passion is writing (fiction, short and long form), hanging out with and caring for animals has always been a personal passion of mine. Looking forward to meeting you and your pup!
