Dog Walker in New York, NY

Hi, my name is Catherine and I am an actor, avid reader, and dog lover! I grew up with a miniature schnauzer named Mitzi and due to my living situation I'm unable to have a dog of my own, currently. This is why I'd love to spend time with your dog on a walk! I also work as a nanny and dog-sit for friends and family, so I have ample experience in care giving, for humans and furry friends alike. I'm looking forward to getting a workout in with your wonderful dog!See Profile

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.

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
