Hi! My name is Whitney and I am young professional working on environmental policy, previously for a Congressman and soon for the State Department. I'm from California. I grew up with family dogs - first Burger and then Scooby Doo - both golden retrievers.
I love all types, ages, and breeds of dogs. I genuinely enjoy the company of dogs and would gladly give your dog the attention, fun, and care he or she needs.
I have a calm and warm disposition, which allows me to develop relationships and build trust with new dogs at their own pace.
I am also very active! I love the outdoors! I love to take dogs on walks runs or hikes if they're up for it and if they don't mind saying hello to other dogs and people we might pass by.
I am a good fit for:
-Dogs who need a lot of exercise
-Dogs who love to be lazy and cuddle
-Dogs who need to go out in the afternoon/during the work day.
Happy to discuss how I can meet your dogs needs:
-follow specific feeding instructions
-special considerations for doggie disabilities
I Might Not Be a Good Fit For:
-Dogs who readily snap, snarl, or bite
I have tiered pricing.
Walking and drop-in services start at the listed base rate for destinations within 3 miles from my home and there is an additional $5 for every mile beyond 3 miles up to 6 miles from my home.
For example ($/30 min walk):
$20 for up to 3 miles from my home.
$25 for up to 4 miles from my home.
$30 for up to 5 miles from my home.
$35 for up to 6 miles from my home.
$40 for more that 6 miles from my home.
I am open to discussing these rates and considering each request on a case by case basis. I live in the Shaw/Howard neighborhood.
*Miles measured by shortest biking distance listed by google maps.
Also, note that last minute bookings within 24 hours of the requested walk time have a surcharge of $5 and same day bookings have a surcharge of $10.
