Karen showed up on time and took great care of my dog scooby!! I enjoyed getting pics and videos of their walks and the fun she was having with him!

Karen was professional and communicated well from our initial contact with her. She stayed in touch about her initial visit with Winry. She warmed up to Karen quickly! We’ll definitely use her services again!

Details: 1 dog • 2 - 10 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • 30 minutes (standard) • Prefer a private walk for my dog(s) alone • My home, venue, etc.

I have very specific instructions for walking and feeding my older pit bull and Karen took the time to go over everything in detail. As an owner of a senior Doxie, she understood and cared about my concerns.

This is no dilettante. She is a professional who takes caring for your pooch very seriously. Highly recommended.
Background Check

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically charge $25 for a 20 minute walk.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to do a meet and greet with the owner and animal and find out any nuances such as do they get along with other dogs? People? Do they chase squirrels? Are there any medical issues?

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have owned dogs my entire life and have had several clients over the past 2 years whose animals I have cared for. I have also worked for a holistic pet food manufacturer in the past.
