Dog Walking Guru

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

Your Fur Babies Will Have So Much Fun!

Hi, my name is Irma! I'm very energetic, down to earth, patient, loving, honest, trustworthy, and fun going. I've loved all animals since I was a little girl. I grew up with a German Shepard named King who I loved so much. Once I became an adult I promised myself that I would always take care of other people's pets and give them all my love because I know pets are special and part of the family. I worked at a pet grooming salon for 2 years where I learned how to properly bathe and groom both cats and dogs. I've been a dog walker for 8 years and I'm Pet CPR Certified. My services include dog walking, dog/cat sitting, and dog/cat boarding. I love to exercise so your pet will always get the ex...See Profile
