Dog Walker in Boston, MA

I am a very responsible person when it comes to other people’s pets. I grew up with Shitzus, Rottweilers and pit bulls. I am very caring and know that all dogs need just as much love and attention just like the owners show love and attention. I also would love to be able to start my own pet sitting businues and show my daughter the responsiblity it takes to take care of a dog. I am very flexibel and am willing to travel to the owener to pick the dog up. The dogs will love how calm and will love my personality. I love running and playing fetch long walks in the park and just letting them be them. Enjoy life to the fullest. See Profile

Boston has a high amount of greenery compared to pavement. This area’s parkland compared to overall area is above average. A greener canopy for cities improves the quality of dog walks for both the dogs and dog walkers.
