Dog Walker in Columbus, OH

Hi, my name is Michaela! I currently live in Columbus, Ohio and attend Ohio State University. I have been walking and caring for dogs here for 2 years now, and grew up with 3 dogs of my own at my home in Pennsylvania. We had a litter of puppies last year where I cared for 10 new borns, so I have experience with all ages! Throughout high school, I volunteered at the Animal Humane Society.See Profile

Dog Walker in Columbus, OH

Hello! My name is Alison! I've been working with animals professionally for 5 years now but don't remember a time in my life I didn't have a dog in the house. I currently have a little pomchi named Mika who is my absolute best friend. We live in the Worthington area but I also walk in the Hilliard area since that's where my regular job is. I work at a horse farm, so even more animal experience! You can expect your pup to be treated like one of my own on every walk. I always try to go above and beyond for pups and their humans.See Profile

Columbus Dog Walking and Pet Sitting

Hello! My name is Hannah but everyone calls me Dart. I very recently moved to Columbus from Cleveland, with my roots in south central PA. I’ve grown up with, owned, and lived with wide range of breeds and dispositions, with a heavy emphasis on bully breeds! I used to spend a lot of time volunteering and raising money for my hometown Humane Society in Lebanon, PA. Special needs dogs won’t send me running, and neither will breeds with a “bad reputation.” I look forward to meeting you!See Profile
