Dog Walker in Cleveland, OH

I started doing pet care for one of my friends when they went away on vacation and then after that I started getting paid to do it by other people I know as well. I decided to do it as a job about a year ago and it has been life changing for my family and I. I am a single mom and have a miniature pinscher chihuahua mix. I have had him since he was two months old and trained him myself. My first dog was a husky lab mix. I have experience with all types of breeds and have yet to have a truly bad experience with a dog. I have a big passion for animals and love working with them and being around them!See Profile

Dog Walker in Cleveland, OH

Full-time student who has a very flexible work schedule. Also a student athlete who is able to handle any situations thrown my way. I have always been a very big animal lover and have cared for many animals in my personal life while growing up. I have grown up on a farm so I know how to manage many animals at one time as well as knowing how much love every animal needs to receive and how to properly give it to them. Being a collegiate student athlete I like to exercise and get lots of fresh air and I believe that combining my love for sports with my love for all types of animals would be the best combination and I hope that I can share that love with your furry companions.See Profile
