Dog Walker in Fairfax, VA

I am a mom, a lifelong pet owner and I love reading and writing. I currently do not have a dog but have had a lab and beagles in the past. I currently have a 18 pound tuxedo cat and we hope to adopt a couple of dogs when we move into a bigger place. I have been walking dogs on and off for years and pet sitting cats and if I could afford to do this full time as my only job, I would. Animals make me happier than anything else in the world. I care for them in the way I do my kiddo so that is saying something!.I watch Dodo videos constantly and frequently contribute financially to animal shelter and adoption programs.See Profile

Experienced Walker In Manassas

Hi! Thank you for giving your beloved little buddy a special break during the day when you cannot be there! You can trust that I will treat your dog with utmost love and care. I love to bring joy to your dog! A few years ago I had a lot of extra time on my hands so I discovered dog walking as a way to stay fit and enjoy being with dogs, those very special companions that are a gift from God. It is the perfect job for me because I have worked so long with dogs (as a dog show handler, dog groomer and now dog walker) that I understand dog behavior very well and know how to win a dog’s trust. I love how happy it makes them to go on a “walkie!” I excel at being able to impart to dogs that they ar...See Profile

  • Do I get to see the route my walker takes on the walk?

    You will be able to track each walk route in the app so you know precisely where your dog was walked.
