Service Dog Handler - Beginner Trainer

I am here to bring your pup as much love as possible. I have a service dog of my own, and have been a handler for nearly two years. While I still have much to learn about dogs, I have already learned a tremendous amount thanks to the effort and energy I’ve put into my own dog. My service dog only meets clients when the sitting is overnight. While I have yet to meet you, I am excited to take care of your best fur-iend. I hope to become an extended portion of your dog’s family.See Profile

All Pets Welcome!

I'm a natural animal lover! I'm currently in school to become a neonatologist so care is my passion. I've grown up all my life with various sized dogs so all are welcome! I've pet sat for many years for neighbors, friends, and family. My schedule is pretty flexible. If you let me know at least a week in advance I can definitely sit for you but last minute booking are welcome too!See Profile

Dog Walker in Tampa, FL

I was raised by a Department of Natural Resources Officer in Michigan. I helped him capture, trap, care for and dispatch many animals. I have worked with everything from a captured grizzly to tarantulas. I have always had pets. I currently raise three dogs and many birds. I enjoy walking dogs and making the environment better for all involved. In the homes I currently work for I let myself in by code, check the home, greet the dogs and let them relieve themselves. In mid time I clean up the kitchen and clean slobber off the doors. Take the dogs back out for more exercise after they have a drink. Play ball, brush dogs and/or walk the dogs again and secure the home.The requests from the home...See Profile
