Hi! My name is Kayla! I was inspired by the dogs I grew up with in my family to make it my life’s mission to be of service to all animals and make sure they are treated with upmost respect and love. I’m an experienced dog walker and caretaker. I’m very attentive, patient, and protective of the furry family. I’m from NYC but spent my college years in Ithaca, NY so I love the outdoors. I’m also a brand ambassador for Barkly and certified in First Aid & CPR for dogs and cats. In addition to walking dogs, I also bake healthy treats for them and take photos of them with my Fujifilm cameras. I would love to meet your pup, show them some love, and go on an adventure together!See Profile

I am a pet owner and have a passion for dogs. Wayback in the Philippines I had 13 dogs and happily took care for them. Among them is John- john a crossbreed labrador and great Dane which I am proud. I have trained him and he is like a brother to me. He knows a lot of tricks, obedience and potty trained. Most of all he is an expert swimmer and loves the sea. I used him to train my other dogs and it worked. I did not have a hard time because he can influence them and follow what he is doing. I learned that dogs communicate with each other and I am so happy to have him. I have been exposed to all kinds of dogs and I have the skill to make friends with them. While in the states I had a shi tzu...See Profile
Hi, my name is William McKissick and I am a 22 year old college student. I’ve been walking dogs my whole life. Growing up I’ve had an English Bulldog, a Red Nose Pitbull and a Australian Shepard. I like to walk dogs in all neighborhoods as long as it’s in New York City. Walks with me are very fun and I love to play. I can’t wait to meet your dog and treat it as one of my own.See Profile

You will be able to track each walk route in the app so you know precisely where your dog was walked.
