Hello my name is Randa. I am a paramedic for my full time career, but on my days off I enjoy walking dogs. I find that it helps me relax and destress, as well as I know how important it is for my fur baby to get walks while I'm at work, so in return I like to help others who need to work or go to school. I like dogs of all kinds, and have experience with big, medium, small, young, and old dogs. I am not pet CPR certified, but I am trained. I live and walk in Durham. As a walker you can expect that I will treat your fur baby as I would expect some one to treat mine. I will make sure they get a great walk, and I will follow all instructions. Before I leave I always make sure they have water, a...See Profile
Dogs and cats have been my passion since childhood. My grandparents had been vets, so I was raised up around animals and I am truly compassionate pet lover. Love to spend time with dogs and cats, exercising and playing with them, treat them as if they are my own kids. Trustworthy and honest. I have a masters degree in interpersonal communications which helps me build great relationships with owners of the pets as well. Let your pets spend time with me, they would absolutely have a blast with lots of care and love.See Profile
I really love and enjoy animals especially dogs. I have had and cared for several dogs throughout my life. I have experience with all types of dogs. Hyper ones, calm ones, big or small. I do like going on walks with dogs and can do it pretty well as I used to train my lab to walk on her leash when I was younger. I walk my little dog around my neighborhood in Durham, but have also walked bigger dogs, at lake benson park, Woodcroft walking paths, and really any park in the area. I can also play with dogs in local dog parks as well. What you can expect from me is to be loving, caring and playful with your dog. While also trying to teach them the skills to walk properly on a leash.See Profile
