    Stephanie has watched my dog many times! She is an awesome sitter and always sends updates throughout the day. My dog always comes home happy after staying with her!

    Stephanie is amazing. I was worried about her walking my Jaxson as I am very particular about who cares for my puppy. Jaxson loved her from the beginning. I'd like to say that I decided to utilize Stephanie but Jaxson decided he wanted Stephanie to be his walking mate. Highly recommend Stephanie's services.



FAQs


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

Each and every customer is different. To begin I definitely love to hear about your fur baby! The age, size, type of breed is always a start. I'm very flexible with price range so I usually work with what you are most comfortable with paying. Also he frequency you would like your dog walked.


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

I previously have worked for wag but feel that sometimes it's a bit pricey. I was a customer and a worke. Being a worker there you are required to complete orientation and a certificate for dog walking. I'm very familiar with all types of harnesses as well. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

$20.00-$40.00 per hour- rates very based on travel and frequency. The more I walk, the cheaper the rates :) 


How did you get started in this business?

I've always had dogs my entire life. I love each and every dog and I've decided to start my own side hustle doing what I absolutely love. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

Every different type. as state department before I am very flexible and easy going. I like helping others take care of their dogs to ensure they get their daily exercise!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our neighborhood has a page that we post if we see dangerous wildlife or a lost puppy or cat. I recently found a young pup and the owner came and picked her up. I always love looking out for any animal and making sure they are safe.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Honestly feel comfortable in who you hire. I know my dog is my child and I wouldn't want someone to watch him if I felt they thought he was anything less. Also someone who is flexible and knows how to handle any type of dog.
