Dog Walker in Kensington, MD

Hello! My name is Wendy and I'm a recent law school graduate. I absolutely love animals and have had the privilege of growing up in a pet friendly home! I sometimes joke that my family owns a mini zoo because we have so many animals from dogs to turtles to birds. With that said I have an extensive history of taking care of animals, especially dogs. In the past I have provided dog sitting, dog walking, and overnight stays. As a pet owner myself I know the importance of each individual pet and I can asure you I will take care of your beloved pet as if they were my own. See Profile

I have had dogs my entire life. Most have been rescues, and all were treated as family. They have been all different shapes, sizes and personalities. I have also had a long career as a Registered Nurse. I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family member(s).
