Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

Not only did I grow up in a large family, I grew up on the closest thing to a farm in Suburbia Maryland. My pets included a Golden Retriever (Prince Albert Jr, Aboo for short), two rabbits, a guinea pig, a hamster, two mice, turtles (when they could be found) and several fish. There were clear expectations of shared chores including dog walking and pet care. I am an animal lover in general but have a special place in my heart for dogs. I await the day when I can have my own again! I am reliable, responsible and energetic, and on the days that I am not dog walking, I work as an Executive Assistant for an Internal Medicine practice. Over the past 30 years I have gained much experience walking... See Profile

Customer Reviews

Shannon was a life-saver on a morning when my leasing office opened later than usual. She assisted me in changing my dog’s appointment time right away and got into the apartment a few min early since our appointment was delayed. You can rely on Shann...

Jillian D.

Shannon was so communicative the day before and day of the walk. She gave me moment-by-moment updates when I asked for them and was nice enough to check Ziva's crate for wetness and leave a light on for her. Ziva and I highly recommend Shannon!

Jillian D.

Roman was really great at communicating (we texted night before and day of), and was very understanding of a new puppy's route and unpredictability. Ziva seemed very comfortable with him as well!

Jillian D.

Monica always calls or let’s us know when she notices anything odd or different with our dogs, especially if they have been a little sick. Really appreciate the special attention

Lillian F.

Thank you for getting to Ziva so quickly when a situation arose with limited access to the apartment key! I appreciated the clear communication and detailed notes about the walk.

Jillian D.

Very responsible and mindful of our security. Always makes sure she guards the key well and reaches out if she sees anything out of the ordinary at home. Very helpful!
