About Hilary

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'd rather be with dogs than humans any day. I LOVE dogs and I completely understand how scary it is to let a stranger take care of your fur baby and will ensure they have endless love and attention while maintaining safety while they are with me. I am a graduate student at Emory and my boyfriend just graduated from his masters program and playing with dogs makes us SO HAPPY!!! With both of our schedules, we are available almost all the time to help with your pup!
We both grew up with many dogs of varying ages, breeds, disabilities and backgrounds. Currently, we have a 4 year old sweet yellow lab child that does everything with me! We have a dog park at our complex that we go to at least 2 times a day and Freedom Barkway and Piedmont Dog Park are just a short walk away! We have so much fun when we host/walk dogs, making sure they get lots of love and exercise. To ensure your peace of mind, we both send lots of picture updates and can be reached anytime if you need to FaceTime your sweet pup!

I live on the first floor so it is a good location for dogs with joint problems. I am very experienced with dogs with separation anxiety, geriatric dogs, and high energy dogs. We both embrace slobber and dog hair! It adds character after all.

We can take your dog on leisurely walks, runs on the Beltline, to the dog park or even on hikes and swims. We love playing fetch and going on long walks. Dogs are treated like people at our house and can sleep anywhere they please. ( We will be a little sad if they don't want to cuddle on the pillows!)
I am very conscious of restrictive diets and will respect whatever regimen you choose and keep grain free organic treats on hand. We put animals first and will treat your dog as if they were my best friend ( because they will be!)
Bathing: I have a pet spa with a stainless steel bath tub and drying station. I only use eco friendly shampoos.
Transportation: I have a Lexus RX 350 with "dog seatbelts" in the back seat for their safety. I really do treat the doggies like they are humans!

As Hilary's roommate for 18 months and counting, I have seen firsthand her care and diligence in taking care of pets. This begins with the care of her own dog, Zappa, and extends to the care of dogs that she has cared for in the past year and a half. Hilary has an uncanny ability to understand the needs of dogs unlike anything I have seen before, which I think can be attributed to her upbringing in a house filled with animals! Zappa is the happiest pup that I have ever known, and this does not come at the expense of her training, as she is also an incredibly well behaved dog as well. I have witnessed Hilary easily and lovingly manage the care of pets that even their owners have claimed to be unmanageable! Taking care of another person's pet is something that cannot be taken lightly, and Hilary does an excellent job of making sure both the pets in her care and their owners are always happy!

Hilary was great. Our dog Sasha can certainly be a handful, but Hilary was extremely patient in forging a bond with Sasha. Would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a walker or sitter.
Hilary was great with our dog. He can be a bit shy but they bonded instantly. We would for sure hire her again.
We love Hilary! This was my first time leaving Steel with someone other than family and I couldn't have more positive things to say. If my spoiled energetic pup could talk I'm sure he would agree.

I met with several hosts before my last minute energetic pup could talk I'm sure he would agree.

I met with several hosts before my last minute trip out of town and instantly felt a sense of relief after meeting Hilary. She sent plenty of updates throughout his stay and Steel is worn out from playing with sweet Zappa and getting to go to the park (multiple times a day). I would recommend letting your fur baby stay with her any day! Will definitely book again in the future.
