Dog Walker in New York, NY

Dog's are my passion in life. I have always had dogs in my liife and still do. While at my last job, I belonged to God's Earth and Creatures Club. I soon volunteered at a local animal shelter in the Kensington, Bklyn area for 5 years. Here I would walk many dogs, clean shelter and helped with many fundraisers to help raise money for this animal shelter. Truly a great experience to have! See Profile

Dog Walker in New York, NY

Getting to work with dogs professionally, as a means to support myself, has been a true dream. With 5 years under my belt, I now gladly serve both Philadelphian and Manhattanite poochies. I especially love walking/trekking with active dogs, who are ready to tear up a few miles with me outdoors. I additionally work in food, fashion and the arts.
