A Barkly walker in the SW, Navy Yard and nearby neighborhoods since fall 2016. Great at getting shy dogs to warm up. Best with dogs over a year old. I love being part of you and your dog's days!

Dog Walker in Washington, DC

I'm currently a student studying psychology. I've been pet sitting for friends and neighbors since high school and am still waiting for the day when I can get a furry friend of my very own. Over the years, I've come to understand that the most important thing when it comes to interacting with animals really just is patience. Nice long belly rubs don't hurt though :)
