About Stephany

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there!
My name is Stephany and I am a 20-year-old Emerson College student. I live with 3 roommates in an apartment in Allston, but I grew up and lived (until very recently) in Londonderry, NH. Back home, one of my favorite activities was to go on walks with my dogs through the conservation land surrounding my home. I even earned a job walking my neighbor's dogs. Now, I quite enjoy walking around the city and discovering new views or special spots, and I'd love to share my experiences with a furry friend or two (this all sounds so corny, but I'm being super serious!). I am a hostess and a full time student, but my work and school hours do not start until the late afternoon, so I would love to start dog walking in the mornings/early afternoons.
Since I was born, my best friend has always been a pet. I am stuck between being a cat and a dog lover; depends on what mood I am in that day. My first dog, a yellow lab named Goldy, passed away this year at a graceful age of 15. In the past year, her spirits were up, but her physical health was depleting. Because of this, I am experienced with giving dogs medicine, as well as taking care of an elderly dog that sometimes gets confused with their surroundings. Our family and friends can honestly say that she was the best, most caring dog to have ever lived! She taught me that dogs require a lot of responsibility and patience, but that they are ultimately so rewarding, and I will always cherish our times together. We now own a 3-year-old German Shepard named Gracie that we rescued from a kill shelter in Tennessee. Gracie is heaps of fun, but has immense anxiety around new people, and she has taught me how to deal with a dog that is quite literally scared of her own tail. In addition to Gracie, we also have a pet duck that stays outside, which has taken on the role of Gracie's new best friend after Goldy's passing. Now, in my apartment, I live with a five-year-old Skipper Ki/Chihuahua/Pitbull mix named Baby, and a 12-year-old Persian cat (Cindy) that refuses to leave my room. They act as great stress relievers when I come home from a busy day at work or school, but they also keep my responsibility in check with their care-taking needs. I am also a leopard gecko owner and am somewhat an expert at taking care of lizards and skinks, if you have scaled friends that need taking care of, or just some care taking advice. Ultimately, I'd love to start working more with animals, as I find that I'm never not happy when I'm in their presence. I have no restrictions on the doggos that I care for, as my family has fostered every breed from Boxer to Pitbull to Rottweiler, and I love them all the same.

Not only was Stephany reliable / dependable but she has a huge heart and made my dog like her family which made her part of our family. Always there when we needed her even at the last minute when we needed an overnight stay so I could go on my business trip knowing that my Gracie wasn't having anxiety issues and my home was being watched.

She will be missed!

Stephany is an absolute delight and my dog thinks so too! I'm so grateful for the peace of mind of having her walk him every day.
