Sara here, reporting for duty. As an avid animal lover, I have been caring for pets since I could successfully walk.I have been volunteering at animal shelters for the last 6 years, and have fostered dogs before. My "day job" is as an audio engineer, meaning I keep a weird schedule, all the better for my canine clients! I am a pitbull advocate, and I am well versed in dogs from 3lb to 250 lb. In my youth I dabbled in creative writing, so you're bound to get a creative description of your dog's walk.
I am the proud mom of a 2-year-old Cavachon pup and 9 month old kitten, who are both my babies and my best friends. In the past I have fostered a puppy as well as two kittens, finding each of them a compassionate adoptive home. I also enjoy pet sitting for family members while forming strong bonds with their dogs. I can't wait to meet yours and go on some great walks!
I am a dog lover, companion, and enthusiast! I've been dog walking professionally for 2 years now. I also have two dogs of my own. They are both Bichon Frise. Princess Peach and Reptar are mother and daughter.
