My name is Katie Garrison and I love animals so much! I have been dog walking and petsitting for other people for 6 years now and it is my most favorite thing to do! I have experience working with all types of dogs and other pets. I currently live in San Diego, Ca and I do walk neighbor dogs each week. People say I am caring and loving and very trustworthy. Right now I am the loving mother of a very spunky 9 month old Boston Terrier who is my world.See Profile

Let's be honest. We don't always have the time in the day to care for our furry best friends and it's sometimes devastating to think they're stuck in a cage, or just home all alone for x amount of hours. If this applies to you and how you feel, look no further. I will treat your BFF as if they are my own little furball and provide them with one of the best mornings/afternoons/days of their little lives!See Profile
