Dog Walker in Madison, WI

I am totally flexible with picking up and dropping off pets. I don’t mind hectic schedules or last minute changes of plans, I totally get that. I do have one four-legged roommate of my own that loves to play with others. I can also help curb naughty behaviors during the day as long as you let me know what your needs are. For boarding, I ask that you provide food for stays longer than 1 night. For walking, I ask to know in advance how long they like to walk for, what their pace is, and how well they walk on the sidewalk. I only ask to assess where might be a good spot to walk your pup! Any other questions or concerns, please let me know!See Profile

Available starting 9/1. I'm a lover of dogs and cats, mom to a 9 year old mixed breed dog and 3 cats that have passed. My dog walking experience includes my childhood dog (easy peasy) and current dog who is 50 lbs, strong and pulls! I'm a mom of three human teenagers and an in-home child care provider of 5 years. I'm an excellent caretaker with lots of patience and heart. I'm available for dog walking and dog and cat sitting.See Profile

Dog Walker in Madison, WI

I have been a dog person ever since I can remember. Anytime I visit a family member who has a dog or any pet for that matter, I always spend a lot of time with their animals. I am currently in university and have my own 1 year old puppy who I take on two to three walks per day to burn off his energy and so we don’t feel cooped up inside. I also have walked many neighbor’s dogs in the past and even taken care of them a few times. I enjoy taking brisk walks but my puppy loves to sniff around and explore so I don’t stop him from being a curious pup. I have experience will small, medium, and large dogs and I am patient with all dogs.See Profile

Dog Walker in Madison, WI

I enjoy long walks on the beach…if the beach allows dogs. While some people think it’s bad to say “I love you” on a first date, dogs don’t usually mind. My pride is in helping pet parents give their pup the lifestyle they deserve. Dogs of all shapes, sizes, and sounds never cease to amaze me.See Profile
